We enjoyed a 5 night stay at Dukes B&B while visiting family in Clunes. Graeme & June were perfect hosts - friendly & informative but not intrusive. June's cottage garden has an amazing amount of beautiful plants to discover including a herb & vege garden. One morning just before we left, a huge & stunning Poppy burst into flower (see photo) - it was amazing, I'd never seen one so huge before!
Graeme excels in the kitchen and his famous breakfast is not over the top and filling, but is totally gourmet and to die for! Starting with his home made muesli, baked fruit in syrup and delicious yoghurt followed by the best bacon, eggs, amazing mushrooms in a touch of cream (and/or whatever else you choose from his menu) - along with homemade bread. His coffee is also fantastic!
Dukes is perfectly located and you can walk the length of the main street from the B&B. A great area to explore with some great shops (most only open from Thursday to Sunday though). The local butcher has excellent meats and quality cheeses! A must visit, is the garden & nursery in Ascot!
