Hillside Country Retreat
Ranked #4 of 16 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We stayed in the Beverly Cottage in May 2014 and had a fantastic time. It took us less than an hour and a half to get there from Perth (which was perfect with our baby) and the map provided was spot on, with great signage around. We found the cottage to be clean and tidy on arrival and had no issues with any of the amenities during our stay. The log fire already had a good base built in it to get it up and running quickly which was a nice touch with plenty of spare wood to keep it going through the night. But most importantly, the cottage has a fantastic view of the hills and the surrounding area was peaceful and quiet and great for walks. All whilst being close to all the local attractions and town centre. The owners were lovely and were happy to have a chat with us. We will definitely be back for another relaxing weekend get away.

My partner and I stayed in peppercorn cottage this pastweekend, what a lovely place to unwind and enjoy the quiet country life. THe cottage was well equipped with everything one would need, huge tv, lots of dvds to choose from, heaps of reading matter and very cosy chesterfields to relax in. The cottage has 3 bedrooms and a modern kitchen with microwave, a gas cooktop and oven, a coffee pod machine and a drip filter machine, all the cutlery and crockery, drink wear and cookwear is all provided. The beds are so very comfy and clean. Joy is an excellant hostess, very attentive, lovely to chat too and she cooks a great breakfast, we had stewed apples, toast, eggs (any way you want) bacon, sausage, tomato and mushrooms, plus fresh juice and coffee. We were asked what time we would like breakfast and i asked Joy what time is breakfast, she replied she worked breakfast in with her guests, so that to me was a huge bonus.

Thank you Joy and Andrew for your hospitality, you have a wonderful property, we will be back.

We stayed in the Julians cottage which has 4 separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and brilliant views over the valley. A short walk to the City centre, yet total silence and endless views. We rented the place for a team building event and it was simply the best location for that. The rooms were brilliant, great kitchen with all appliances you need, great welcome by the owner. Will definitely come back: maybe for a romantic weekend and then rent the cosy Stable.

My gal pals (3 in total) decided to stay here 9th February 1 night prior to taking the plunge out of an airplane doing a tandem skydive in York.
What a pleasant surprise when we drove into this property. The owner was not there when we arrived (being in Perth for his Mother-in-laws 83rd birthday), however the groundsman that showed us to our Cottage (Julien's Cottage) was very friendly and helpful, the owner arrived back some time in the evening and came out to greet us on our return from going into town for dinner, his name was Michael and what a friendly, lovely and accomodating man he seemed to be.
What a lovely cottage, really wished straight away that we had decided to come up a few nights earlier and stayed longer than 1night. The cottage has everything you may need for more than a comfortable stay, plenty of room, crockery, cutlery, views and ambience. Lots of artwork on the walls that could keep you occupied and fascinated for a while and the balcony sit out is amazing (albeit a little dry being February), fully airconditioned and 2 bathrooms.
The other accommodation also looked interesting, however I am not able to give a review on all the offerings as did not have enough time to explore. I would suggest that this place would be good for more than a 1 night stay, perhaps 3-4nights minimum next time to take it all in.

Room Tip: Julien's Cottage was absolutely gorgeous

Stayed 4 nights and was very sad when I had to leave. I just love this place. Our art club held their annual Getaway here, and the grounds and cottages were just beautiful. So much inspiration on this property alone, I did not have to venture into town for more. Rooms look like mini antique shops, very clean and comfortable. Lots and lots of secret gardens to relax in, while munching on mulberries picked fresh from the trees. Well equipped kitchen and large bathroom a bonus. Andrew and Joy are wonderful people, making sure everything was OK. We will be back next year without a doubt.

We stayed two nights and Joy & Andrew made our visit to York that much nicer. We have wonderful memories of this special region of WA. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast more than ample and delicious. served in a delightful Tea Room. The gardens are beautiful and the decor imaginative and fun to look at. Thank you Joy & Andrew for making our stay so memorable.

I stayed in one of the ensuite rooms during a business trip and it made a long couple of days much more enjoyable. So glad now that the pubs in town had been booked out!
The room was quiet and comfortable, and I had everything I needed to relax after work. Breakfast in the garden room was a good start to the day, and there was enough of everything.
Good location too, within walking distance of town.
