Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

Lunch overlooking a lake, beautiful food platters and delicious wines – it was worth the slightly bumpy road down to The Lake House nestling in the rolling countryside of Shadforth on the hill above Denmark. The recent winter rains (we were there in early August) had damaged the unsealed road further – no fault of the owners who have been trying to persuade the local council to seal the track for some time.

We were able to sit out under the patio area enjoying the view and ambience whilst wondering if our holiday would be over before it started (rumours had reached us of a potential Covid lockdown in Perth). We had visions of being confined to our room wearing masks but thankfully that didn’t eventuate. Nevertheless we decided a detour to the cellar door and produce shop would be a wise move so left stocked up with some essential supplies.

The Lake House enjoys an excellent reputation and is also a popular wedding and function venue – can highly recommend if anyone ever finds themselves in Denmark (the West Australian one that is!).

You can find my other Denmark posts here (still a couple to come).

    1. Yes we were actually so lucky with the weather Jo- we’d had weeks of rain over winter (most days) and this was the first fine spell of 2 to 3 days we’d had. It was still crisp and chilly though as you can see. Lunch was lovely! πŸ™‚
