It was the perfect little getaway. We could not recommend The Buckland studio retreat more highly. We wish we could of stayed longer. The service, cleanliness, accommodation, beautiful location was amazing.

It had exceptional views from every angle, was spacious enough for two, had all the necessary creature comforts and an out of this world bathroom you will want to spend time in.... More

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. We loved the styling of our studio and took lots of pictures so we can use the ideas when we build a place of our own. We loved... More

We stayed at the Buckland Retreat for 3 nights in October and enjoyed our stay very much. The studios are gorgeous, scenery & views are beautiful, breakfast nice - all as advertised. Minor point: we thought pricing was a little bit ambitious - so, overall, 4 instead 5 stars. But, again, we have a very good experience and highly recommend... More

WOW – we were blown away as soon as we stepped in! We absolutely loved our stay at the Buckland Retreat and didn't want to leave. This place was definitely the most expensive on our trip but it was well worth it. Stand out features: the massive, super comfy bed, the lovely furnishings, beautiful bathroom with freebie bathroom products, awesome... More

Amazing views of mount buffalo and gorgeous ultra private little villas that will relax and rejuvenate anyone who stays there. The villas are modern and make use of all the great views with lots of spots on the verandah to look out at the mountains. Loved the double showers and the bed was very very comfy. Its about 12kms out... More

Breakfast was great, when you walk into the... More

We have holidayed in Bright for 22 years but this was our first time having a couples holiday. We stayed in studio 4 and it was perfect. It is private, and yet you can see forever from the deck. It was like you had this beautiful place all to yourself. Sabine and Eddie make a wonderful and welcoming breakfast to... More

What an amazing setting! Thank you so much, we had the best time! Our few days out of melbourne were super relaxing. Great location to try restaurants and wineries, then settle in by the fire at night! We will be back again!

We actually stayed here back in June - what a wonderful experience. You can tell Sabine and Eddie have put a lot of thought into the studios - beautiful wood furnishings throughout and a log fire perfect for those chilly nights. We were also provided with wonderful (real!) coffee and breakfast in the mornings. The Buckland is set in a... More
