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

What an incredible place! We loved everything, from the warm and friendly welcome from Eddie and Sabine and the delicious breakfasts they prepared for us every morning, to the beautiful studio retreat - pure luxury! It's the perfect mountain getaway. We will definitely be returning!

Couldn't of hoped for a better getaway. Everything about the place was perfect. Owners are very friendly people and very helpful. Set in one of the most picturesque places I have been to, our studio was fantastic. We will certainly return again in the future.

My Fiancé and I were given a beautiful weekend away by his parents as an engagement present, as I am 6 months pregnant we were very much looking forward to having a romantic weekend away in studio 5 at The Buckland Valley Retreat. However our first encounter with Sabie’s husband (part owner of the retreat) was very unpleasant. He was... More

Hello Elisha, It saddens me no end that your weekend away started on a bitter note, which obviously set the mood for you and your fiancé for the rest of the weekend and spoiled the experience. Just to put things in perspective, we would like to give our point of view of what happened: Your fiancé’s mother had kindly informed... More

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!!
