“A beautiful B&B with lovely hosts”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stayed two nights at Barnsley House and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - from the freshly backed scones on arrival to the wonderfully appointed and restored historic rooms - all the positive comments it has received are well deserved.

Do yourself a favor and enjoy the wonderful hospitality at Barnsley House. Easy walking distance to the centre of town. This historic and beautifully restored period house offers a warm and memorable experience from the freshly baked scones to sumptuous home cooked breakfasts.

Room Tip: We had the Albert room, beautiful afternoon winter sun!!

At the time of writing, 62 of 63 TripAdvisor reviewers/contributors have given Barnsley House an excellent overall rating and it's easy to see why. Barnsley House is easily one of the best B&B stays I've had. The property is simply beautiful with its fountain, well maintained gardens and fantastic 19th century house. The rooms lack absolutely nothing and are full of old world charm. They are air conditioned and heaters are thoughtfully provided in the bathrooms (it sure isn't warm in this part of the world in winter). You'll also find a kettle, coffee, tea, biscuits and a little fridge next to the beds. The kitchen and dining areas are also beautiful with the gardens making a perfect backdrop. A special mention to the hosts, Eileen and Steve, who will provide delicious breakfast at a time of your choosing along with pleasant conversation which will include some top suggestions about the town and the area. If you don't want to get out and about, the bed and breakfast is also a nice place to relax whether it's in your room or in the shared areas. Its gardens would even be a lovely setting for a picnic lunch. Barnsley House has an excellent location. It's only a short walk from the town centre but it's far enough away to ensure that you won't hear a thing at night. And the prices? Extremely low for what you get. Do not hesitate to book Barnsley House if you're staying in this area.

We stayed 2 nights at Barnsley in winter time so we booked the Edward Retreat room and had the open fire going. Very romantic! Normal heating worked well too and bed had electric blanket. House was warm even though it was 1 deg at night, Excellent breakfasts, complimentary chocolates, port and sherry. TV/dvd player in the room so BYO or check out the selection in the shared lounge. Eileen and Steve are the perfect hosts, happy to chat or let you be, and I must thank them for suggesting the perfect days itinerary to us (Yackandandah market to Myrtleford's Cafe Fez and the afternoon at Gapstead winery). Beechworth is a charismatic town full of history and Barnsley's old world charms matched it perfectly.

Room Tip: Rooms are along a long central corridor and the likely reason why late check-ins are not permitted...

We also stayed only one night and will be back for more! It was lovely to sit in the conservatory on a grey day and have tea and scones, looking out on the autumn leaves and English-style garden. Eileen and Steve were very welcoming, enthusiastic and the perfect hosts. The breakfast next morning was fantastic, and it was really nice to sti with the other guests and natter about all sorts of things. All in all we can highly recommend Barnsley House.

We only stayed one night at Barnsley house as we were passing through Beechworth on our way to Melbourne - what a treat! We would be back there for sure! the house itself is just stunning, its like stepping back in time! lovely comfy bed, fantastic bathroom (we stayed in the victoria suite) Steve and Eileen are fantastic hosts - our breakfast in the morning was delicious! ( make sure you have some of thier next door neighbours relish - its to die for ) We were the youngest people staying in the house by about 30 years but they made us feel right at home. Wonderful service and a beautiful house. Thanks guys!

Steve and Eileen had just taken over Barnsley House when we visited the week after Easter. A very welcome tea and cake on arrival in the conservatory, and great advice and support through our stay. Steve's coffee a good start to the day.

Highly recommended, and well located a short distance from the centre of town.

Room Tip: Rooms are off a main corridor with the kitchen at the end - so if you are late, light sleepers you m...
