Nestled in the picturesque Carmel Valley, just 25 minutes from Perth, Fawkes House offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat. This heritage listed Federation home and garden, surrounded by orchards and vineyards, is the perfect setting for a romantic weekend, mid-week break or as a base from which to explore Perth and its many attractions.
Relax in a well appointed self-contained cottage, comprising a luxurious bedroom, lounge and bathroom. Quality furnishings, polished jarrah floors and traditional decor ensure the perfect setting. Wander through the meandering paths of the sun-dappled spinney, surrounded by camellias, rare hellebores, narcissi and primroses or enjoy a game of croquet and boule on the lawn, originally the tennis court.
Enjoy a beverage on the wide, sheltered verandas of the main house, or relax with a good book beneath rare flowering trees.
Gourmet breakfasts can be served in the formal dining room of the main house, in your cottage, or within the gardens. Local produce, free range eggs, fruit and vegetables from the garden, and attention to detail ensure a delightful start to the day.
Picnic hampers and evening meals are available by prior arrangement....
Fairbrossen Cafe and Winery is located in the beautiful Bickley/Carmel valley, just 25 minutes from Perth's central business district, and only 10 minutes from Perth Airport. The cafe is located in the old tractor shed which has been tastefully transformed and extended, with an elevated dining area overlooking the vines.
The cafe is enclosed with glazing and blinds for your comfort, but can be fully opened when the weather is suitable. They invite you to experience the ambiance of the rural setting while enjoying the views across the vineyard to the forest beyond.
All of their food is wholesome, homemade and freshly cooked for your enjoyment. Free wine tasting is also available in the Cellar Door right next to the Cafe, where you can sit on the recently covered decking and chill with a glass of wine.
They also do functions (personal or corporate), seminar and weddings. The venue is child-friendly with an indoor kids play area and outdoors on the lawn....
