We stayed at Byronsvale for a weekend in May when everything else was booked because of 'Groovin the Moo' weekend. This B&B doesn't come up on the usual sites but if you go to the Bendigo Visitor Information Centre you'll find it there. It is a little out of town (maybe 10 mins) and at night you have to follow the directions carefully but this is a great find. The 'stable' we had came with stone walls, really tasteful decorations, self-contained kitchen, super comfortable bed and a nice place you can sit outside in privacy. The breakfast that was provided for us was excellent. Being out of town means its quiet. Very quiet. The setting next to the vineyard is peaceful. About the only improvement would be a spa. Price at $180 a night was well worth it. We'd stay again!
