Sustainability and luxury are two things you don’t often find in the same place, but this gorgeous rural stay has them both in copious amounts. Nestled in the rolling hills of Denmark in WA’s Great Southern, Upland Farm is the environmentally-conscious, boujee and beautiful farm stay you need to add to your travel hit list.
The timber-clad eco cabin sits pretty on 107 acres of working cattle farmland, so you’ve literally got sweeping views of lush countryside from every angle. Not to mention, some incredible stargazing opportunities once the sun goes down.
Immense time and thought has gone into every single detail and honestly, it’s a little mind-blowing how amazing all the features are. The two bedroom, two bathroom guest house comfortably sleeps four adults and features contemporary, neutral-toned decor throughout that perfectly compliments the farmland vistas—think beautiful hardwood floors, crisp white walls and modern timber furniture. Plus, super comfy beds and mod cons like a smart TV, washer-dryer, and all the kitchen appliances you could need, as well as a toasty indoor fireplace to keep you warm.
Not to mention, they’ve just done some landscaping at the guest house to add a gorgeous outdoor fire pit overlooking the stunning Denmark horizon, meaning you can kick back with a glass of WA red, or a hot choc if it’s extra chilly.
The wondrous idea of Upland Farm was conjured up by Tyrone and Shelley Kennedy. Quite the dream team, Tyrone led the construction of the home, while Shelley cleverly captured the essence of the landscape within the colour tones of the interior design. And architect Nikki Ross helped make the most of the incredible sights, wrapping the property in glazed windows to provide 360 degree views and loads of light, without compromising on warmth.
The Kennedys have also been sure to tick all the eco boxes too. They collect their own rainwater and the wood fires are run purely off already fallen trees on-site. There’s also compost bins tucked neatly away on the property, which significantly reduce the property’s landfill. Plus, Upland Farm will eventually have a supply of fresh produce grown on-site for you to munch on.
The working farm is open for you to explore but did we mention that you’re also a mere 15 minute drive from the town of Denmark? So when you are finally ready to leave the secluded surrounds of Upland Farm, we suggest you jump in the car and tick off all these top things to do in Denmark.
A little warning: you’ll want to plan ahead for this one. We’re not the only ones who have discovered just how incredibly breathtaking Upland Farm is, so make sure you book this one at least a few months in advance. And don’t forget to say hello to Banjo, the adorable Border Collie, while you’re there!
