So close to town but you’d never know it, as you lean on the verandah railing and observe the surrounding valley views. Yet a 2 minute walk over the old railway bridge finds you in the heart of Nannup.

There are so many reasons to visit Nannup and the Blue House B&B is just one more. This Queenslander-style house is warm and welcoming and each bedroom opens directly on to the verandah, making the most of the lovely valley views and the 5 acres of land, bordered by river and forest.
The Blue House has three bedrooms and offers the best of traditional homestay accommodation, where the owners are there when you need them and melt into the background when you want privacy. Quality linen and bedding and a delicious breakfast menu are must-haves when it comes to B&B accommodation… and the Blue House certainly shines here.
One bedroom has a queen-size bed and an ensuite and there is also a room with twin beds and another with a double bed. These two rooms share the separate toilet and bathroom. The guest reading room has a double sofa bed, meaning that the house can sleep a total of 8 people, when booked by a group. Evening meals and/or picnic hampers for groups of 4-6 can be catered for – just have a chat with Susan and Michael and let them know what you need.
The Blue House is the perfect base to make the most of this beautiful region of WA … even if the most you want to do is sit on the verandah, read a book and sip a glass of wine, or stare at the immensity of the night sky away from the light pollution of the city.
However, those who like a little action with their holiday will be pleased to know that the Munda Biddi off-road cycle trail runs alongside the Blue House. This trail will (when completed) go from Perth to Albany, mostly following unused railway lines. It currently runs from Perth to Manjimup and is increasing in popularity, as it is WA’s first off road cycle trail – and it runs through a region of staggering natural beauty.
Make the Blue House your base in Nannup … its blend of hospitality, charm and great location make it a house you may never want to leave.
