“An amazing country get away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

Strath Valley View is everything it claims to be on it's website, and more. This is easily the best equipped "self-catering" accommodation we have ever stayed in. The kitchen was well equipped, and made it easy to host a few people for a family birthday during our stay.

There was plenty of books, DVDs, toys and the cubby house was a massive hit with our young son.

The location is also great for a low key holiday....there are a few places to go, things to do and see, but equally you can just take it easy and enjoy the quiet and the view at the B&B.

We very much hope to return again some day.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

We stayed 3 nights here and wished it were for longer. The cottage is beautifully located in the "Valley of a thousand hills" and the view is superb with the title being no exaggeration. The cottage is beautifully fitted out with 2 bedrooms and laundry facilities and everything you can think of has been thoughtfully provided. (This was the biggest dvd library I have ever seen in a b&b!) The little extras for the price make this place an absolute bargain - breakfast provisions provided with homemade bread and jams, a cheese and fruit platter on arrival, coffee pod machine, handmade local soaps and wines available at cheap prices. The place was immaculately clean and spacious. The garden was a delight and the cottage was half way up a 30 degree hill to maximise the views but so privately located you were in a world of your own.

Strath Valley View B&B is very peaceful and it is some way away from main towns so if you are expecting to just pop down the road for a quick cappucchino and a shop this is not the place. If you are looking for a quiet haven with country views where you can get away from it all then definitely come here!

Melissa has been running this B&B since 2007 and there was not one bad comment in her visitors books with visitors and friends and families repeatedly returning here to this gem and we can understand why.

There are additional highlights in the animals - there are cute belted galloway cows, a pony, horse, a dog and chickens on the property not to mention lots of beautiful birdlife and we even saw a koala crossing the road just down the hill... and the usual kangaroos at sunset. You are given the freedom by Melissa to wander the property and enjoy the amazing views from her hill (a small mountain really) but for those less physically able, you can just sit on the deck and enjoy it too! Loved the place!!

Room Tip: Beautiful country location

We had such a lovely stay, the cottage was extremely comfortable and very well set-up for both couples and families, and the breakfast provisions made for a delicious feast! Not to mention the spectacular views. Highly recommended.

Strath Valley B&B is a wonderful place to visit, especially with a 3 year old, with the cubby house, toys, and farm animals keeping her very 'busy' , enabling us to relax by the fire. We appreciated the very generous breakfast provisions, especially the freshly baked bread. The peaceful surrounds and the thoughtful extras made us feel very special guests. We will certainly be making a return visit. Thanks Melissa!

The perfect escape starts with an easy one hour drive from Melbourne where you find yourself in the stunning Strath Valley, at Strath Creek. The cottage is luxurious, private and well maintained and has amazing views of the surrounding valleys. Melissa, the hostess has thought of every detail any couple or young family may need for their home away from home. There's the toys, dvd’s and cubby for the young ones and great selection of books and dvd's for the adults; sitting around the wood fire sipping complementary port in the evening or sitting on the veranda watching the wildlife or taking in the views. Go for a walk and spot the wild life, go for a drive and explore, or just relax and take in the views. The farm fresh food, coffee maker and local produce were superb. The perfect escape.

This is truly a wonderful place to stay. Only an hour from Melbourne, but it feels like you are tucked away in the middle of nowhere. The hostess, Melissa, strikes the perfect balance between being welcoming and accommodating, but allowing you to relax on your own.

The cottage is decked out with everything that you could need and is a perfect place to just relax.
