Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

In my last post I covered the Torpedo Trail around Yallingup, which started from historic Caves House, our base for a few days break in July (see here for that post).

Caves House is a beautiful heritage-listed hotel first built in 1903 to service the burgeoning tourist interest in the newly discovered Ngilgi Caves. It has been a popular place ever since for tourists and locals alike. Although there are modern apartments nearby, which we have also stayed at, we loved experiencing the character of the hotel and the ambiance of a bygone era. The lounge area and bar with its roaring wood fire (we were there in July, mid-winter here) was the perfect spot to sit and enjoy aperitifs in the evenings.

I loved the classic furniture and elegance of the decor. Caves House has always been a popular spot for honeymooners and hosts many weddings especially in the warmer months under the arbor in the rolling grounds. Here are a few photos (again I’m struggling with the new WordPress editor but hopefully the upload works!)

    1. I think I’m slowly getting the hang of it Jo – too late now if I’m not as I don’t seem to be able to go back! Was glad to get a post up this weekend after a bit of a hiatus. Caves House is lovely – first time we’ve stayed in the main house though we’ve been there a few times before when staying at the next door apartments. School holidays for the next 2 weeks here so no school runs but hopefully off to the zoo on Tuesday and kitten sitting again as our elder daughter and family away. Our resident pets will no doubt take umbrage! Hope all’s well with you and yours and have a great week too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
