Barnsley House Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed December 29, 2013

Such an amazing place, it was like stepping back in time to the former glory of the Gold Rush times in Australia. Beautifully decorated rooms, every detail was taken care of. Breakfasts were delicious, many options to choose from and an excellent time to chat with other guests and with the hosts.

Such a welcoming couple, couldn't have asked for better hosts! Always happy to help and give their advice on things to see and do around Beechworth.

We will definitely be coming back, it was such a great spot for relaxing after a full day of bike riding!

Steve and Eileen make this lovely homestead a true retreat. The rooms are beautifully kept and comfortable, and the breakfasts delicious. The garden is truly spectacular, and makes Barnsley house particularly special.
In practical terms, the B&B is walking distance to everything, but far enough away to feel hidden from the gentle buzz of a Beechworth weekend.

having read most of the reviews before booking in for a well earned solo break, I am not sure what to say other than perhaps I totally agree with all the positive comments. After a great home cooked breakfast, once I managed to choose from the fantastic offerings, was completely ready to either enjoy the short walk into the town centre, to go for a short drive to a nearby attraction, or just to relax in the wonderful conservatory and gardens. Fantastic time and I'll definitely be back. Thanks also to the awesome hosts Eileen and Steve for opening their home to us refugees from the city.

Room Tip: All rooms have garden views, and private decks, you can't choose a wrong room.

Having never been to a B&B before, Barnsley House has really set the benchmark high. We were greeted with freshly baked scones and tea, soft robes and slippers in our room, a gourmet breakfast everyday, port and sherry in the evenings, with genuinely lovely company and conversation from the hosts Eileen and Steve.
Relaxing in the conservatory with a book and a cup of tea (until it was wine time) was just soooo ... well ... relaxing. The rooms, including the sitting room and bathrooms, are beautifully furnished and oh so comfortable.
As for the location, its a short walking distance to town and a short drive to the local wineries and other points of interest. But why would you leave!
Elieen and Steve were happy to share their thoughts on where to go and what to see. I would most definitely recommend Barnsley House.

This B&B is located within walking distance of the main street in a quiet area. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Adjacent sitting room is convenient if you are travelling as a group as we were. Breakfast offers variety and is very well done. The host were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place and would readily return.

The agenda for our extra-long weekend included a day at the Wangaratta Jazz Festival, golf with mates in Wodonga, and visits to some of north-eastern Victoria's wineries, so basing ourselves in the very pretty town of Beechworth, an easy drive from all our destinations, seemed like a good idea. In fact, it proved a great idea. Barnsley House B&B is a delightful place - with a beautiful garden, spacious and comfortable rooms, fabulous breakfasts and hosts who couldn't have been more helpful during our four-night stay.

We stayed at Barnsley House for the weekend of the Beechworth Celtic Festival. It proved a delightfully peaceful home to return to with the town throbbing to bagpipes, drums and fiddles and, as the night wore on, amplified pub bands. Steve and Eileen ensure that guests are welcomed and catered for according to their interests, and comfort is assured. Specialties at breakfast, such as Welsh cakes and French toast drowned in fresh fruit, give that extra memorable touch. The entire house offers tasteful period decor but subtley accommodates modern comfort standards. The crowning glory is the garden (complete with resident frog in the pond) which provides charming vistas from any angle, but especially from our own little sunporch!
