Description:

Experience the magic at Yelverton Brook, hidden away in a unquie 100 ac Conservation Sanctuary, Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Retreat is a perfect way to relax and unwind amid the beauty of nature whilst only being minutes from local attractions.

The property was purchased in 1988 and was originally a bare bush block with no improvements, to now a multi award winning property found in the heart of the Margaret River Wine Region, only 15 minutes to Busselton, Margaret River and Dunsborough. Centrally located to wineries, beaches and restaurants.

The chalets were beautifully built by Simon & Joy (the owners), Simon is a Shipwright by trade and a craftsman, the cottages are fully self-contained and are built from hand-made mudbricks, featuring local timberwork and stone finishes. Each one has a gas barbecue and includes your own large private outdoor 11 jet Hydro Therapy Massage Spa. Enjoy “spas under the glorious southern star filled skies.”

Set the mood for romance with your favourite CD’s and the world-class wines and foods from the area. Guests complimentary local produce will be stocked in their cottage on arrival, which includes fresh milk, eggs, local paper, butter and map and imagine arriving to the aroma of a loaf of freshly baked bread.
