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

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
