CONS: There are really nothing bad I can say about this place. There is no oven (in case you wanted to cook). PROS: You can see the Milky Way clearly - that's how dark it is. Just take one of the outdoor chairs and go sit in the driveway and look up...awe inducing! The fireplace is really effective. Bed is... More

Stayed here for our 10 year anniversary in studio 2. Didn't really know what to expect as we haven't ever stayed in this type of accommodation before. But we were pleasantly surprised. The studio was lovely - the views were amazing, with the snow capped mountains, and there were so many little details that made the stay so great. Beautiful... More

Stayed in studio one, the room was stunning! The property had the most amazing views. Sabine and Eddie were lovely and very accommodating hosts. One of the most relaxing weekends. Highly recommend, we could not have asked for anything more!

If you are looking for a luxury weekend away this is the perfect place. The location is only about 5 minute drive from the city centre. The breakfast in the morning is great and the attention to detail in the studios is excellent. Love the massive bathroom with the bath overlooking the bush so relaxing. If you are looking for...

Beautifully equipped studio apartments with magnificent views to Mt Buffalo. Wood fire, great coffee machine and fantastic bathroom. We highly recommend the Buckland and look forward to returning soon.

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
