Most visitors to Perth will make their way down to the Margaret River area to visit wineries et al and then think about where to stay. I'd reverse the process, stay at wonderful, woods-bound Wildwood Valley and then think about what to do! With magnificent views to the sea, Wildwood's location is stunning.....

.... There are 120 acres of woods, fields, sheep, kangaroos and horses (it's mainly a stud). In the main house the bedrooms concentrate on great beds and linen; there's a full-size snooker table, a video library, a large sitting-room with real fires in winter and a heavenly gazebo, sometimes the breakfast venue. Sioban’s parents built the stone/wood house around 23 years ago and her mother Anne converted it into a bed and breakfast a few years later. Having studied hotel management in Sydney, qualifying to be a chef and then spending time in Italy (where she met Carlo), Sioban is the natural predecessor to take over the reins from her mother. It is only five years since she and Carlo returned, and with their shared passion for food, wine and people and having previously run an Agritourisimo in Tuscany, their combined talents have quickly taken Wildwood Valley to a different level. Also resident is Tixi – a baby joey that has been hand reared and is only too happy to sit for any photo opportunities or accompany you on the splendid walks (or hops) around the property. This book is all about atmosphere, character and people. And so is Wildwood Valley. (i)They now also run residential cooking schools which have been selling like hot cakes(!)(p)
