The Buckland is an expensive upmarket retreat. The views across the Buckland Valley are certainly reminiscent of Europe. The studio is generous & well appointed with all you could want. Studio 2 has some small signs of ageing with some attention required to ensure the magic of the Buckland is retained. In the middle of winter I thought it would... More

This was our third stay at the Buckland, our second in studio 4. We last stayed in 2009 and the studios are just as perfect as we remembered. Studio 4 has been well maintained. It is spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed and high quality linen. The trees have grown since we were last there, and the autumn colours at... More

We went there in April to celebrate my partner's birthday and all we wanted was somewhere quiet. This place is amazing. It is the perfect place for 2 and it was amazing to wake up with the sound of birds singing...not to forget the amazing views and Sabine was just a blessing! thank you!!

Highly recommend. Located in a valley so picturesque it looks like it's from a fairy tale, our studio cabin (#2) was divine. The views from the front overlooked the valley and from the back, including a floor to ceiling window next to the very spacious bath, of the stunning Australian bush. All the facilities inside the cabin were high quality... More

My fiancée and I spent 5 nights staying in Studio 5 at The Buckland and couldn't be happier. The studio is nestled amongst the bush at the top of pastoral land. It has stunning views to Mt Buffalo which are visible through the expansive glass frontage of the studio. Sabine and Eddie were most hospitable. They provided a delicious breakfast... More

Whoever thought to make one third of Studio 2 a bathroom is a genius. 2 showers. Giant bath with a killer view. Coffee machine!!! Breaky is awesome and the service in the lead up to staying and whilst staying is impeccable.

We had an awesome time at The Buckland, room was perfect, and loved, loved, loved the bathroom with double shower and stand alone bath with huge window looking out to the bush.
