We were looking for a weekend in the Yarra Valley, wineries on the Saturday, Healesville Sanctuary on the Sunday. Perfectly situated for both, we liked the sound of The Burrow but it exceeded all expectations. A wonderful welcome, a cosy home away from home, on the edge of a billabong with nature literally on the doorstep. Our stay all too brief, we will be back, for longer next time.
Although only here for 1 night we were made very welcome. Our hosts, Sue & Bill are delightful and fascinating people and nothing was too much trouble. The environment is blissful! Thanks!
If you are looking for a quiet, authentic place with a beautiful surrounding (and beautiful people as hosts), you should really go here. The cottage is lovely decorated and has a very 'homely' warm feel. Not to mention the view... The location is very central with winery's all around. But you can also stay in for a night and enjoy a great meal prepared by Sue (excellent food or a good price!). We will visit The Burrow again for sure!
if your looking for a bnb for total relaxation look no further.. the perfect hosts who provide you with a wealth of information on the oasis that they have created, also for directions to the local eatery which is only 5 minutes away, which we can recommend as well.
a big thank you to bill and sue for their friendliness and conversation...
This beautiful rustic accommodation is nestled in a serene spot overlooking a lake with some spectacular bird life. Sue and Bill are lovely hosts incredibly helpful and thoughtful. We will certainly be back again for a much longer stay next time.
Our hosts Sue and Bill welcomed us to The Burrows, located in the spectacular Yarra Valley wine region, close to Melbourne.
Our accomodation was a cosy mud brick cottage, set among beautiful towering eucalypts overlooking the bird filled billabong. Inside was a very comfortable big bed and every aspect of the cottage was thoughtfully set up and stocked for all our needs.
In the distance we heard the resident Airedales and we later delighted in a visit from 'Chill'i and 'Beckham'.
Our two night stay was all too short and we will definitely be returning.
Cosy hand-built cottage and the natural surrounds with amazing wildlife was so diffusing. I could tangibly feel the stress melt away after our two night stay. We feel so much more connected and united as a couple, so vital for busy parents of young children! Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality :)
