“Absolutely Magnificent!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I LOVE staying at The Burrow!!! This was my second visit within a short time and I will definitely be back.
I recently went with my husband for a couple of days and then stayed on for the week by myself.
It is warm and cosy inside the cottage and has a magnificent view out over the lake.
Bill and Sue have created a haven. The birdsong in the day and sound of frogs at night is just wonderful.
And of course their adorable Airedale dogs are a complete delight!
It's the perfect retreat.
As well as enjoying walks around the property - I loved walking in the surrounding area - lots of cows, sheep and horses to say hello to!
Plenty to do in the Yarra Valley - but I preferred to just hang quietly at The Burrow.
Looking forward to returning soon.

And you know just how much we love having you stay in The Burrow. Each time you come, you have immersed yourself in Wombat Bend, learning its light and shade, absorbing its ever-changing life, and finding all the quiet places in which to connect with the deep peace of Nature.

We are very much touched that you have connected in such a spiritual way with the soul of Wombat Bend ~ a 'retreat' in the best sense of the word, a place of restfulness, calm and quiet that strengthens one's own spirit.

We look forward to your call to say that you are coming back soon.

“Another perfect stay”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Thank you Sue and Bill for yet another perfect getaway, this time with mum in tow. We arrived needing a night away from the hectic pace of the city. We yearned to be surrounded by nature and peace. We found ourselves on an unusually mild afternoon, sitting on your balcony watching the birds on the lake whilst sipping a local pinot. BLISS! It was also lovely to see your gorgeous Airedales frolicking around the property. Mum was thrilled with the accommodation, the super comfy bed, warm furnishings and delicious bread, cheese and breakfast provisions. She said is was one of the best getaways she has had. A credit to your hospitality. We plan to return! Thanks again x

Thank you so much for such a warm and lovely review. It was a great treat to have you return, and to bring your beautiful Mum this time. We shared a lot of gardening chat and could have continued for hours ... it's such a pleasure to know our guests immediately feel at home and start to breathe more slowly, even before they know it. I'm delighted you both felt at home .. but without the pressures of home. Do come back again soon. The Airedales will love to see you again too !

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My family stayed at The Burrow for the long weekend - our two girls aged 9 and 14 were with us. It is a space of infinite grace and friendship. Sue and Bill are wonderful warm souls and this is reflected in the place they have created. We cooked, sat and pondered the ducks and talked. Reading was high on the list, wrapped in blankets on the veranda or inside in the coziness. Lots of special cuddles with the dogs esp Mr Beckham. Cant wait to return.

Such a special family ! we adored having the girls, loved that you rugged up and filled your lungs with fresh Wombat Bend air, gave the Airedales their full measure of attention, and altogether shared your pleasure in so many simple and natural enjoyments. A time to relax, a time to breathe, and a time to remember. Come back soon. We miss you.

“Peaceful & Relaxing”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Burrow @ Wombat Bend was everything & more that we expected. To stay here was magical & so very peaceful & relaxing . The cottage was warm, cosy & very comfortable & the abundant fresh ,local food that was supplied was delicious. The little extras such as chocolates ,cheese etc that were also supplied were very much appreciated & enjoyed by us.
The hospitality & local knowledge from Sue & Bill was fantastic.
We enjoyed walking around the billabong ,but our favourite place was relaxing out on our balcony watching the abundant birdlife that visit the billabong throughout the day .
The locality of The Burrow close to all that the Yarra Valley has to offer

Thank you so much for your warm review, and for the huge pleasure of your company and lots of conversations of shared interests. The delight you expressed in all the wildlife, especially the birds, that call Wombat Bend home, was matched by your pleasure in feeling comfortable and at home in the cottage itself. We truly look forward to another visit from you ~ it's always wonderful to share our sanctuary with others who love it too.

Warmest regards, Sue & Bill & the Airedales

“Delightful. Beautiful. Serene.”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This stunningly unique and beautiful cottage is more than a bed and breakfast; it's an experience. Private and secluded this cottage is set in the most beautiful natural landscape encompassing personality and charm like no other place I've been. I stayed only one night, but it helped me to get in touch with creativity that had been dormant for some time through providing an inspiring place to practice my music and art.

The Burrows cottage and surrounding landscape has been skilfully, ethically and lovingly created, nurtured and shared by owners Sue and Bill. It was an honour to experience a taste of their vision. What an artwork, a beautiful symphony they have created. I would suggest as far to say this place provides for the spirit something individual which could come as the most amazing surprise.

is set in has a personality, as does the landscape that encapsulates it, as do the lovely Sue and Bill who lovingly care for and nurture the land

“Romantic”
Reviewed April 8, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed here as a romantic getaway after attending a wedding in the Yarra Valley. This was the cosiest and most perfect place to stay and we felt so at home. All the little touches made it very romantic and special. Sue and Bill should be very proud of this secret little burrow they have created and we will look forward to the next time we get to visit (hopefully for a lot longer next time)
Thank you
