If you like history, coupled with luxury and space, you will love Faversham House. The oldest inland mansion in WA, it was originally a family home, built and extended during the mid nineteenth century with local granite. Its very thick walls means it stays cool in summer. Log fires and reverse cycle air conditioning keeps you cosy in the winter. Free unlimited wifi is available but no TV. However the house is best enjoyed with some great wine, books and company. Great for a group.

The space
There is nothing like Faversham House anywhere else in Australia. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds and seating, and history and antiques wherever you look. A great games room in the historic cellar plus a library of interesting books - novels, history and the arts. Fabulous gardens of terraced lawns, roses and fruit trees. Spaces to wander, close to York town centre and minutes from the very special Alice at the Palace restaurant.

Guest access
Just a few minutes from the town centre with historic buildings, car museum, visitor centre and court house and gaol. The lovely Avon River - great for a picnic - plus the Swing Bridge to navigate. Mount Brown just 2.5 kms away is a fabulous place for viewing 360 degrees around the Avon Valley. The award winning York Olive Oil company welcomes visitors and you can sample their very special ice cream. York also has a 50m swimming pool, open from November 1st to March 31st.

Location

York, Western Australia, Australia

Faversham House is just over one hour's drive from Perth, the capital of Western Australia and is on the way to the famous Wave Rock in Hyden. It is a good stopping point for visitors taking the inland route to or from Albany, Esperance, Kalgoorlie, New Norcia and the Pinnacles.
