The Old Laravale School offers a unique accommodation and workspace venue

for your next sewing, scrapbooking, craft or wellness retreat.

As a lifelong sewer, former store owner, and a sewing teacher I was inspired

to create a unique venue for small crafty groups.

Located in the picturesque Scenic Rim Region, Laravale is approximately 1 hour

from Brisbane, Ipswich & the Gold Coast.

We are 10-12 minutes from the centre of Beaudesert township.

Scenic Rim Region ranks as number 8 in the world's best in travel destinations for 2022.

What a great place to spend a few days with friends doing what you do best.

Willmann House, a former farmhouse was relocated to The Old Laravale School property in 2019

and has been passionately renovated to sleep small groups of 4 to 9 guests.

The House is self contained and sits right next to the former school building

where your air conditioned workspace is located.


Mid-week and Weekend bookings are available
