Welcome to Westmere Lavender Farm, our working 1200 hectare farm.

We are ideally located right on the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail and we offer modern, comfortable accommodation in our renovated woolshed. We have the ability to comfortably sleep up to 9 people in our two self contained apartments within the woolshed. Both apartments have access to the covered deck where you can sit in the evening sun and enjoy the views over the farm.

Adjoining the woolshed is our lavender farm where guests can wander through the lavender field and beautiful gardens at their leisure, browse in the farm shop (stocked with lavender products made on farm) and meet and feed our friendly farm animals in the petting zoo.

With our comfortable and relaxing decor, wifi, and twin/ queen beds with fresh, clean bedding Westmere Lavender Farm's woolshed will have everything you will need to rest and unwind after your day of cycling. Plus we are just down the road from the Pasquale Kurow Winery!

We are happy to prepare dinner for you made with homegrown produce and ingredients fresh off the farm. Evening platters/breakfast and a packed lunch can also be arranged.

Farm tours and activities are available - please enquire at booking.Your hosts Samantha & Luke look forward to welcoming you!
