“A getaway in Beechworth”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

My mum and I stayed at the Barnsley House Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights - it was a treat for my mums birthday. The rooms were just beautiful and the whole house was full of character and just a beautiful place to stay and so close to all the beautiful spots to see in Beechworth. Eileen and Steve are wonderful hosts and make you feel very welcome. Would highly recommend for that special weekend away.

We stayed at Barnsley house for two nights and confidently I would say it was the best B&B we have stayed in. The house is beautiful with so much history behind it and located in the heart of stunning Beechworth. What makes Barnsley so special is the host Eileen and Steve, they are extremely hospitable, warm and super caring. Eileen went out of her way to cater for my dietary requirements and provide gourmet breakfast.
I will recommend Barnsley House to all my friends and we will definitely return again to beautiful Beechworth and Barnsley House. Make sure to stay at Elizabeth retreat to couples who are after relaxing and romantic time. Also, make sure to check in before 4pm so you can enjoy the delicious afternoon tea at the conservatory.

Room Tip: Elizabeth retreat is a must if you are after a relaxing and romantic holiday!

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Barnsley B&B, & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautifully decorated with period furniture & photo momentos. Every detail of the rooms has been thoughtfully prepared & sitting in the conservatory with the morning light shining through is just glorious! Congratulations to Eileen & Steve on their new adventure. Your welcoming smile & hospitality was great. Just keep on doing what your doing & we are sure Barnsley will continue its success into the future.

Room Tip: The Windsor room has the bigger spa.

We stayed at Barnsley House for four days over the Easter weekend primarily as a base to cycle the sensational Murray to Mountain rail trails. Little did we realize how beautiful the town of Beechworth was and together with the warm hospitality of new owners, Eileen and Steve, we have definitely decided to return. After our first sumptuous three course breakfast, which kept us peddling all day, Eileen and Steve told us that the group was their first and we congratulate them on their expertise. They could not have done more for us (even storing and packing our local produce purchases for our trip home), our room had its own verandah and our bikes were safe under cover. The gardens are lovely and the conservatory is a perfect place for afternoon tea or a glass of wine.

If staying in summer there are two rooms on the south side, we chose the Elizabeth with a much appreciated spa after our long rides, and three on the north side which would be very cosy for a winter visit along with the many open fires.

There are several great places to eat and many interesting historical sites to visit in town, all an easy stroll from Barnsley House. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about their new location and we wish Steve and Eileen well.

We happened on Barnsley House online and now having come to the end of our weekend away, were very pleased we did.
Eileen and Steve were the perfect hosts. Having only taken over the business 4 days earlier, their hospitaity and knowledge of the local area could not be faulted.
The accommodation was very comfortable and the full cooked breakfast, combined with Eileen's 'special' honey and cinnamon yoghurt and, Steve's expertly ground coffee were highlights.
We will have to return in Winter to reap the benefits of the open fire.
Thanks again or a great break.

Our group spent two very happy days in Beechworth and we could not have been better looked after at Barnsley B&B. Rod and Barry were very welcoming to my husband & I, and my brother and his wife from England. The food was delicious, the wine was wonderful, the extra details in the bedroom all made it a memorable time. It is definitely worth staying there if you can.

If you are looking for clean, superbly comfortable and beautifully presented accommodation in Beechworth, you cannot go past Barnsley House. Rod and Barry are wonderfully discreet hosts, who still manage to create a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Nothing is too much trouble. They are very knowledgeable about the Beechworth area and perfectly happy to share that knowledge, most often over a delicious breakfast served in the beautiful dining room, overlooking the gorgeous conservatory and into the lush and well kept gardens! Rod and Barry are to be commended on their attention to detail and their commitment to ensure every guest has a wonderful experience. Next time my daughter is home from overseas we will be planning another vist to Beechworth and Barnsley House. Thanks Rod and Barry for giving me a few days of special mother/daughter time before Kate headed off to Borneo!
