If you want a great "getaway from it all location" and are not fazed at $300 per night then the Buckland is for you! Beautifully furnished with large shower room and smallish kitchen area. King bed superbly comfy looking out onto the native bush at the back of the property. 2 decks - the covered deck was rather hidden behind... More

Our three nights at the Buckland was superb. We arrived, quickly unpacked and relaxed. Everything was set-up to enjoy. Really nice touches....slippers, coffee machine, air conditioning on. Wonderful bathroom. Spent nearly an hour in the bath staring at the bushland. Lovely view from every window. Then some wine on the deck. Very comfortable bed. Simply perfect. Wonderful hosts. Can't wait... More

We came here because I wanted to capture the Autumn colors on film that this area is so famous for. I was so happy I chose The Buckland for our accommodation. Our studio was well equipped with modern amenities. The shower has to be seen to be believed. Beautiful valley views and freshly cooked breakfasts. Not much more to say.... More

Its not often we get away for a few nights, but I'm glad we found this place. The Buckland is amazing, its forest edge location is fantastic. If you want a good nights sleep this is the place in Bright. A fireplace to relax infront of after a day of wine tripping, winter sports or just wondering around the area.... More

We just spent a week at The Buckland. Having searched widely for something different we were hopeful that we had found just that in this offering and we were not disappointed. Our very private studio was beautifully equipped with all modern conveniences including a coffee machine as well as a double rain shower and huge bath overlooking the forest to... More

We just had a wonderful 8 days stay at The Buckland. From the moment we arrived, we knew we'd found the perfect spot for a relaxing week's stay. Eddie and Sabine are the perfect hosts and made a fantastic breakfast each morning that we wanted it. Studio 2 had a great bathroom including bath and we enjoyed a great bottle... More

As Darryl Kerrigan once said, "Ah, the serenity...." The perfect words to describe a perfect location for a quiet weekend away. The hosts, Sabina and Eddie, offer an idyllic location to unwind. Waking to laughing kookaburras on clear and sunny mornings you are lost in the serenity of the Victorian bush.

great location, close to Bright and Mt Buffalo. quite well fitted out studios, and a good breakfast. Maybe a little pricey, but the views are superb. I would recommend to others. The hosts are pleasant.

Before our stay commenced Sabina called to ensure the simple and friendly check-in process was understood. Once we arrived at our beautiful destination we we greeted by an immaculately prepared studio which offerred stunning views of Mount Buffalo national park. Eddie and Sabina are friendly and warm, and their studios are equipped so that their guests want for nothing. The... More
