“Like a home coming.”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was our second visit to the Burrow and every bit as enjoyable as the first and I am sure as will be the third as no doubt we will be back.
Just an idyllic place to relax and be as one with the Australian landscape.
The generosity of Sue and Bill has to be seen to be believed. The breakfast provisions for two people are substantial and if you were to leave the Burrow hungry it would be your own fault.
The amazing birdlife and the scenery from all corners never cease to surprise.
If you wish to leave all your cares and woes behind the Burrow is the place for you. Just kick back, relax and dream. Will certainly be back sometime this year.

We loved having you, and loved that you settled into The Burrow so easily. It's always a pleasure to know that first-time guests very quickly feel at home (without the pressures of 'home' ) and find relaxation around every corner, with nothing to do except to enjoy it. It was an excellent piece of planning to include a great concert experience at Rochford on the Saturday, but with only a short trip home to The Burrow afterwards. There's so much to see and do in the Yarra Valley that we hope to entice you for a longer stay next time. And Wombat Bend at any time of the year is a constantly changing picture book of nature and the natural world.... right at your fingertips. Do come back ! Cheers, Sue & Bill

That's the kind of review that sends a tingle down my spine. Thank you! it was a real pleasure of course to have you stay, but to know it was your first experience of a B&B and that you found all and more than you expected makes it even better. We truly do hope to welcome you again, for a little bit longer this time. And we are still only an hour from the city <smile>
Cheers, Sue & Bill

“A hidden Gem Cottage is generously shared by the talented & kind-hearted Owners..”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We were very lucky to find the Burrow B & B for our holiday staying in Yarra Valley. My husband & I loved The Burrow at Wombat Bend, we felt very peaceful once driving in from the gate that all our worries was gone immediately. A welcome gesture by Sue who took us walking through the place that we were already amazed by every single details/elements matches within the cottage. The warmest welcoming that also we found the fridge was well organized/ filled with food and fruits for more than we needed of 2-day breakfast!

We were also surprised and excited as well as the external view of the nature touch from inside out overlooking ducks in billabong, trees, plants, birds…. Even the cooking moment for us at the kitchen is full of joy, we could surprisingly see a rabbit jumping on the field from the kitchen window. We could be excited to grab our camera when seeing beautiful birds stopped at the balcony from the bed room window, we just felt warm and comfortable like home every moment during our staying!

Sue & Bill are extremely helpful when you needed them. Sue helped me a month ahead by responding my email queries for our Yarra Valley wineries visit plan. Although we quite hesitated for our air ballooning early morning flight planning due to the unpredictable weather on the day, Sue & Bill just gave us direction and confidence for adapting changes, that we finally made it! : )

The cottage is very ideal for Couple retreat, and I can guarantee Everyone staying there would have peaceful and calm spirit to enjoy the sound of music from nature; bird-song, fog sounds, smell of grass after few drops of rain… and Couples both would have rooms by heart listening to each others needs indeed..!

We hope to come back soon again and stay longer next time.

Best,
Maggie & Ben

Maggie & Ben, thank you for such a wonderful, detailed and thoughtful review of your stay in The Burrow ... all the way from Hong Kong. It was an absolute pleasure to help you. You really made the most of every moment of your holiday travels, and packed so much into your journey. You saw and experienced so much that most Australians take for granted, particularly our beautiful environment, space and nature. We loved having you and truly hope that one day you will make a return visit for a longer stay. Our warmest wishes, Sue & Bill

Thank you for your great review and for still choosing to make The Burrow your home-away-from-the-city ~ we always love having you to stay. You are very special guests. Hoping there'll be many more visits (especially birthdays) to keep you returning for another dose of Wombat Bend air and new generations of ducks to greet you. Cheers, Sue & Bill

“The perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at The Burrow for three nights early in October. It was the most relaxing environment with a lovely balcony overlooking the billabong and the birdlife - the perfect place to sit with a book or just snooze. Sue and Bill looked after us extremely well and we had more provisions in the cottage that we could ever get through in three days. The Burrow is also very well located with easy access to wineries, restaurants and everything else the Yarra Valley has to offer. We hope we'll be able to stay there again in the near future.

Thank you so much for your warm review. We really enjoyed having you at Wombat Bend, loved the way you relaxed and started breathing more slowly (it's always noticeable ... stress and tiredness seem to waft off in the air) and also found time to explore some of the Yarra Valley pleasures on offer. It was lovely that you also chose to spend so much time here too, and discovered the peacefulness of The Burrow ~ we hope a good-sized helping accompanied you on the next leg of your trip, to the big smoke. We do hope to see you again in 2016.

It's one of our greatest pleasures knowing our guests discover that magic key called 'relaxation' at Wombat Bend. Slowing the breathing and letting the soul emerge .....

We loved having you to stay, and look forward to seeing you in 2016 ~ and some more conversations to explore.

Warmest regards, Sue & Bill
