“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 1 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My husband and I chose to stay at The Burrow for our first wedding anniversary and it was such a lovely, relaxing and perfect way to spend a few days together away from everything. This was our second time at The Burrow and I'm so glad that we returned for another stay. The hosts at The Burrow are very friendly, welcoming and made us feel absolutely at home and comfortable within the beautiful and natural setting they have created. There are many extra touches to The Burrow that make it such a special place; delicious treats to nibble on, candles to light, gorgeous bathroom products, and not to mention the amazing billabong with beautiful birdlife. This is a beautiful property for taking a gentle stroll and breathing in the surrounds. I highly recommend staying at the Burrow whether as a couple or for some 'me' time. We can't wait for our next stay.

It was such a pleasure to know that you wanted to celebrate your first wedding anniversary in the same place you began married life a year ago.... that has to be a good omen. We loved seeing you again, and hope that your memories of this weekend will be some of your most cherished. We'll look forward to a return visit any time you can make it!
cheers, Sue & Bill

“Beautiful Getaway weekend for all the family !”
Reviewed 1 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Got a few days up your sleeve .... ? Want to take your fury friend ...? Go and see Sue and Bill at their amazing hideaway paradise. We recently visited Sue , Bill and family at their mini eco wonderland with my fury friend Jordi who loved making new friends with all the extra four legged members. Quiet and peaceful with plenty of space for a dog to run around - knowing she was safely enclosed - which included long swims in the pond full of birds.
Also centrally located to a number of great vineyards and a short drive to catch ones own dinner ( Salmon and Trout farm) . We had a beautiful cottage stay with all you could want provided in the homely and relaxing rooms. Thank you Sue , Bill and pooches for such warm lodgings. We look forward to returning.

We loved having you and Jordi to stay, and shared lots of laughs as we watched her marathon swims in the billabong ~ she really enjoyed it! Thank you for being such warm and friendly guests and we will be delighted to have you return again any time. Your appreciation of Wombat Bend was very heart warming, and thank you for leaving such a lovely note in our Visitors Book for others to read. We are lucky to have such great guests.
Cheers, Sue & Bill and the Airedales

“Perfect escape from the city!”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

From the moment we rode up to the gates we knew we'd found a slice of heaven! Staying at The Burrow was like catching up with long lost friends. Sue and Bill were so open, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The cottage itself was well stocked, clean, cosy and comfortable with everything we could possibly need for our 2 night stay. Loved the scented candles and all the books! The 2 course meal with a local wine for dinner was delicious as were the more than adequate breakfast provisions and fresh herbs from the garden. The cheese platter, port and chocolates were a delightful surprise. The setting is stunning - a credit to the hosts. Lots of wildlife and picture perfect views An excellent location ideal for scenic motorbike rides. Will visit again - can't wait to see the dogs too!

We loved our visiting 'bikies' ! Your obvious enjoyment and pleasure in exploring Wombat Bend was such a delight to see, and it was sad to say goodbye ... but hopefully not too long till you can visit again and do some more exploring.
So pleased you also enjoyed your Dine In Tonight experience too .. and fitted in some relaxing time as well as adventuring. You were wonderful guests !!
warmest regards

Very cosy retreat for couples, generously catered for by Sue and Bill. Lovely atmosphere, quiet, relaxing and full of nature (birds, wombats and Airedale terriers!). Highly recommended! Look no further!

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 6 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Wonderful place to stay if you want a lovely and peaceful holiday. It is a hidden gem in Yarra Valley, that can be a good base to explore the surrounding area. The house is very cosy, and the hosts are so considerate and friendly. We definitely recommend this place to others.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My partner and I were very relaxed on our weekend away
We enjoyed the surroundings and our lovely hosts and found our hosts to be very accommodating and made us feel right at home
Our cabin was exactly what we needed to escape the real world, even if it was just for one night
The meals were delectable and we were so amazed at the quality and variety that Sue & Bill catered too
Sitting on the balcony, watching the sun go down, enjoying a red wine and listening to nature was nothing less than spectacular

Thank you so much for having us

The burrow exceeded our expectations the moment we drove in and saw the most beautiful billabong. The property Sue & Bill have created is breathtaking and what is more special is their story of of 40+ years of hard work to create their vision.
The cottage has so much charm and character that you feel the moment you walk in. It has everything you need from a perfect balcony overlooking the billabong to enjoy a wine, kitchen with a full pantry, very comfortable bed, robes and candles.
Sue & Bill are very generous hosts who left us local cheese to enjoy on arrival and the breakfast provisions were the best we have ever had. It was great to meet them and hear their story, they are both so warm and genuine.
We will be back!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a generous and lovely review. We love it when our guests feel very much at home, and best of all, want to come back for more. Your perception of and empathy with Wombat Bend spoke volumes, and clearly the billabong caught your imagination. Thank you for being such wonderful guests..... we look forward to your return soon.
