Map

Stranraer Homestead is a legendary farmstay accommodation situated on a working sheep farm, which has been in the Wheaton family for generations. Their gracious hospitality includes delicious home-cooked meals.

Overview

Stranraer is located on a 3000-acre working sheep farm which has been in the Wheaton family for generations and the hospitality is legendary. Located in the MacGillivray area about 20 minutes drive south of the airport, the homestead is constructed of local limestone and has broad verandahs surrounding it for that classic Australian country style – architects consider Stranraer to be an excellent example of Federation architecture.

Guests are accommodated in four guest rooms although a maximum of three are used at one time unless the property is booked on a sole-use basis. Each of the three guestrooms have a dedicated bathroom. The homestead has been carefully restored with period furniture without compromising comfort as the amenities are contemporary with high quality linens and bedding throughout. Three rooms have Queen beds, one of these has an additional Single and a fourth room has two Single beds in a twin configuration.

The walled garden and orchard provide much of the produce utilised in the generous yet refined catering. Meals are prepared by Lyn and the dinner offers two options for entree, main and dessert with much locally sourced. Breakfast is a selection of fresh-baked pastries, preserved fruits, cereals and a range of hot dishes and is commented on by guests as a stand-out meal. This is a remote location so unless unless guests are self drive it does not make sense to book anything but a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.

Touring can be share or private. Guests arriving at Stranraer on a Saturday afternoon through the summer are often surprised to find a local cricket game in full swing as Stranraer provides the home grounds for MacGillivray Cricket Club and the Wheatons have been keen participants over generations.
