His­toric home plays host to vin­tage tea

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Front Page -

THE his­toric Din­gup House pro­vided the perfect set­ting for a vin­tage tea party to cel­e­brate Mother’s Day on Sun­day.

Built in four stages from 1870 to 1896, the house is now used as a bed and break­fast.

Chris Utech and part­ner Philip Sal­vage have been leas­ing the bed and break­fast since Jan­uary.

“We’ve re-dec­o­rated and now we’re restor­ing the barn to be used as a func­tion venue for wed­dings and such,” Mrs Utech said.

“I’ve been re­ally en­joy­ing learn­ing about the his­tory of the house, from those who come to stay and lo­cals.

“There are so many peo­ple who have sto­ries to share about Din­gup House.”

Mrs Utech said she was happy the his­toric home was up and run­ning as a bed and break­fast as it had been shut for about a year.

MOTHER’S Day was cel­e­brated in style, with a vin­tage tea party at the his­toric Din­gup House Bed and Break­fast at the week­end.

More than 20 women at­tended the af­ter­noon to en­joy tea, cham­pagne and cup­cakes.
