Reg and I started Sandy Lake Farm B and B in 2009 then in 2012 began a holiday rental in Abbeys Cottage. We are surprised every day with the fantastic guests that have chosen to stay with us. Reg loves to spend time singing music from the 60's to 80's era and surprises the children when they sing a song that they feel is modern yet he knows all the words and they only know some. I love to garden and see something available in the Vegie patch to cook with, photography is also a hobby. Enthusiastic photography minded guests have taken advantage of the wild birdlife, farm animals, plus astro photographers take advantage of the star filled night skies, We enjoy talking about the history of Gingin and WA as we have both lived in WA you could say all of our lives. Please contact us for your booking date.
