My husband and I spent a very relaxing weekend at Gowan Valley Guest Farm. Deanne and Brett and the perfect hosts and went out of their way to make us feel at home.
The farm is in the perfect position to enjoy all the best sights on the midlands meander.
We really loved the beautiful rooms! You can stay in one of the garden cottages or the gorgeous manor house. Each room is clean and beautifully decorated. There is so much attention to detail - even Easter eggs left in our room as a treat.
The breakfast is excellent and home made to order each morning while you sit out on the deck overlooking the river - just perfect!
Overall cannot be faulted!

I would like to thank you most sincerely for an unforgettable weekend. Your guesthouse instantaneously becomes a home away from home and the secrete certainly, is your wholehearted and authentic attitude towards life and your business. The four of us had a fantastic swim on Sunday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend your guesthouse to anybody travelling in the Midlands.

It was a very hot day, and the swim in the river was amazing. What an experience... Never to be forgotten. Rooms are beautifully laid out and clean. Will be back!!
