NOTE: This B&B is no longer operating and new owners have taken over the property.

The accommodation is ideal for families as the bedrooms and bathroom are together in one section of the property, which although connected to the main house, give a sense of privacy for guests.

It is an 11 acre working hobby farm with an orchard, vegetable gardens and some livestock.

The owners, Anita and Attilio (Til) Iuretigh, moved to Bridgetown in 1997 and set about transforming the farm, that was fairly basic when they took over.

Now. there is an olive grove, orchard and organically grown seasonal vegetables.

The olive grove contains 45 Kalamata and Manzanillo trees. Most olives are pressed to make superb olive oil and the remainder are processed and become a delicious ingredient in cooked meals and an accompanyment to wine, chesse and crackers. Don't forget to ask Anita about the olive products that are available for purchase.

Sheep, alpacas, and bees complete the farm's complement of residents, that is, if you don't count the numerous birds that visit the garden.

The avian visitors include parrots, rare cockatoos, finches, wrens, honeyeaters, robins, wagtails, fantails, black-headed cuckoo shrike and many more.
