This place will force you to relax
Never tried bed and breakfast accommodation? Maybe you think it's "ye olde worlde"? If you haven't and want to try one for the first time then Oakfield Country House could be a great start.

Located in Balingup, a 2.5 hour drive from Perth, this gem of a town may often get overlooked as a destination to relax and recharge. Just take the highway to Bunbury and then the South West Highway to Balingup. The countryside on the way there, especially in winter and spring, will be well worth the effort just for the drive.

Oakfield Country House is situated above Balingup on Bailey Heights and the quaint townsite is just a short stroll downhill. This bed and breakfast has been purpose built as a B&B accommodation. All rooms are wonderfully fitted out, contain ensuites, have French doors opening up onto a verandah and have the most comfortable beds you could wish for.

On arrival, port and chocolates are provided and the hosts, Ruth and Brian give you a warm welcome and tour of the home. There is a shared guest lounge and dining room which can easily accommodate all guests even if the B&B is full. The back verandah overlooks the valley which Balingup nestles in and is a great place to soak up afternoon sun with a book and wine, or wake early in the morning to watch the mist roll over the hills. This place actually forces you to relax.

The home has two resident pets, a border collie called Ben who is usually rather playful and an elegant cat called Deano who spends most of the time lazing in the sun.

For those who prefer to relax in a spa after a hard day's exploring, then the outdoor spa comes in very handy, especially with a glass of wine and watching the clear star filled skies at night. After a great night's sleep the breakfasts in the morning are sensational - all home cooked to your liking by Ruth.

All in all, Balingup and Oakfield are well worth a visit and will surprise even the most seasoned travellers.
