Our last minute choice of Foragers proved to be excellent in terms of a great holiday in Pemberton, a pretty town set amongst the magnificent karri forests. We were close to trails which afforded walking opportunities. There are resident chooks and a couple of pigs, so children and even adults won't get bored. In fact, the owner was very happy to let us watch him feed the animals and patiently answered our questions.
We stayed in a two-bed self-catered accommodation. There was nothing lacking, the rooms were kept clean, the hot water facilities worked, and when we left after two nights, we happy to clean the place to its original condition.
We weren't able to taste the hosts' cooking, which was a pity as we understood that it was excellent.
Foragers is a few minutes' drive from town, but most guests will need a car anyway to enjoy Pemberton's attractions: walk a section of the Bibbulmun Track, visit the Brook Arboretum, climb the 60m Gloucester Tree, try delicious local marron and trout, and sip tea at the local cafes.
