We live half an hours drive from the Swan Valley. Popping up for lunch is something we could easily do, yet rarely get around to.
For this year's annibirthary ( a word we have coined to cover the convergence of our anniversary and Craig's birthday) we booked the cottage at Upper Reach Winery for Friday and Saturday night.
The Cottage sits at the front of the property, fenced off from the road for privacy. It is the only accommodation on the vineyard and despite the fact you have a clear view of the next door property it feels very private. It is all high ceilings and creaky floor boards that gives a lovely character feel. The kitchen is well equipped and there is everything there you could need, except a cheese knife. A small and forgivable oversight in our view.
