York is situated in the Avon Valley and this farmstay provides a unique opportunity to share in the region's history. The school house is located on a wheat and sheep farm which also features pet kangaroos and emus. The brick school has been fully restored and tastefully furnished in the elegant style of yesteryear but with all the comforts of today. Children welcome, but no pets.
