We really must congratulate Sheila and John for providing excellent hospitality at their B&B.
On arrival, Sheila showed us around the property and gave us the rundown on where is good to eat in Beechworth. One of her recommendations, The Green Shed, was a great place for dinner. She let us know that they only have a small menu, so we knew what to expect in advance.
Foxgloves is a brilliantly designed B&B. The rooms each have their own ensuite. There was both a fan and air conditioning in our room. Our room opened out onto a nice balcony. We hardly heard a peep out of the other guests......... that is, until breakfast when we all got into a great conversation which covered many different topics.
The bed was comfortable, so we got a great nights sleep. The furnishings are very tasteful, and create a pleasant atmosphere. I believe Sheila said she was from South Africa, so there are some wonderfully artistic pieces around the hallway.
The breakfast was superb, and a good mix of fruit, cereal, toast, jams, juices, tea, coffee and of course cooked items made up a fantastic breakfast menu.
The central location was fantastic. The Burke Museum was literally right across the road. There is a short cut down the side of the museum over to the tourist information centre. We did both the "gold rush' and "Ned Kelly" tours and this was an excellent way to find out about this historic town.
I would highly recommend the town of Beechworth for a country escape, and strongly recommend you consider staying at Foxgloves. We were made to feel like family from the instant we arrived, and it was almost a shame to leave!!
