Horses, dogs, cats and birds - your furry and feathered (and even hairy and scaly) family members are most welcome at Diamond Forest Farm Stay. Up until now these are the pets that have accompanied their owners on holidays, and all have been well behaved and have enjoyed their holiday along with the rest of the family.

Each of the cottages at Diamond Forest Farm Stay are enhanced by the warmth of a sunny easterly aspect, vaulted ceilings, beautiful feature slate floors and verandahs with panoramic rural outlooks over the property and beyond. Situated 60 to 100 metres apart for privacy our four cosy, two bedroom cottages are well equipped to provide you with all the modern essentials you would expect of quality self contained accommodation to ensure your holiday stay is comfortable and relaxing.

Pet Friendly Cottages

Forest and Bluegum Cottages

  • Sleeps a maximum of 5
  • Queen ensemble bed in the master bedroom
  • 2 ensemble singles and 1 inner spring trundle bed (suitable for a child) in the second bedroom
  • Pet friendly secure, sheltered, grassed enclosure 2m high, 6m x 9m with direct access to the cottage so you can leave your dogs on the property knowing they are safe and secure

Our pet friendly cottages are very popular so it is essential to book early.

 Pet Rules

  • Your pets are allowed inside the cottage on the slate floors, however are required to be kept off the carpets (bedroom areas), furniture and bedding. The doors to the carpeted bedrooms can be shut, thereby allowing pets free run of the slate floored areas within the cottage. Covers are provided for the lounge suites. 
  • Rules regarding dogs on the property are in line with those imposed by any local Council: dogs must be kept on a leash at all times on the property as there are lots of free-range pet animals that many dogs can’t resist the temptation to chase, and other guests on the property that may not be comfortable around dogs. Off lead areas are available but are dependant on current guests and your dog. 
  • All droppings must be picked up (including those in the dog enclosure at the cottage)  
  •  Dogs must not cause a nuisance by noise or otherwise to other guests
  • Guests are liable for any damage of injury caused by their pets.

Much of the area around Pemberton is National Park and dogs are not allowed; however there are many places they can go such as the Diamond State Forest (directly across the road) and Big Brook Dam. Additionally, some of the lovely restaurants, wineries and cafes in the area are pet friendly and will allow your well behaved dog to join you for lunch. We can provide you with a list of these upon check in.

For horse enthusiasts who love to holiday with their four-legged friend there is a labyrinth of great logging tracks that can be followed on horseback for miles and miles through the Diamond State Forest adjacent to Diamond Forest Farm Stay. Additionally, for your peace of mind, your equine friend can be accommodated in full view of your cottage, in a safe grassy paddock with water available. Fences are constructed of reasonably new ring lock wire and treated pine posts.


Tips for Travelling with Dogs

"Crate training" can be a useful tool for pets that will be regularly travelling. A properly crate trained dog will think of the crate as their own safe place and will be happy to spend time there when needed. The familiarity of the crate can help your dog to feel comfortable in unfamiliar surroundings and in circumstances when you have to go out and need to leave him or her behind.
