“Perfect escape from the city!”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

From the moment we rode up to the gates we knew we'd found a slice of heaven! Staying at The Burrow was like catching up with long lost friends. Sue and Bill were so open, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The cottage itself was well stocked, clean, cosy and comfortable with everything we could possibly need for our 2 night stay. Loved the scented candles and all the books! The 2 course meal with a local wine for dinner was delicious as were the more than adequate breakfast provisions and fresh herbs from the garden. The cheese platter, port and chocolates were a delightful surprise. The setting is stunning - a credit to the hosts. Lots of wildlife and picture perfect views An excellent location ideal for scenic motorbike rides. Will visit again - can't wait to see the dogs too!

We loved our visiting 'bikies' ! Your obvious enjoyment and pleasure in exploring Wombat Bend was such a delight to see, and it was sad to say goodbye ... but hopefully not too long till you can visit again and do some more exploring.
So pleased you also enjoyed your Dine In Tonight experience too .. and fitted in some relaxing time as well as adventuring. You were wonderful guests !!
warmest regards

Very cosy retreat for couples, generously catered for by Sue and Bill. Lovely atmosphere, quiet, relaxing and full of nature (birds, wombats and Airedale terriers!). Highly recommended! Look no further!

Thank you for taking the time to review your weekend in The Burrow. We really enjoyed having you to stay here ~ and glad you were able to make the most of some rare time-out for each of you.

Just being able to slow the breathing and discover some quiet peace is very good for the soul..... something we find our guests really value here. We'll be looking forward to your return.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Wonderful place to stay if you want a lovely and peaceful holiday. It is a hidden gem in Yarra Valley, that can be a good base to explore the surrounding area. The house is very cosy, and the hosts are so considerate and friendly. We definitely recommend this place to others.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed May 25, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My partner and I were very relaxed on our weekend away
We enjoyed the surroundings and our lovely hosts and found our hosts to be very accommodating and made us feel right at home
Our cabin was exactly what we needed to escape the real world, even if it was just for one night
The meals were delectable and we were so amazed at the quality and variety that Sue & Bill catered too
Sitting on the balcony, watching the sun go down, enjoying a red wine and listening to nature was nothing less than spectacular

Thank you so much for having us

“Perfect weekend getaway, amazing location and generous hosts”

person found this review helpful

The burrow exceeded our expectations the moment we drove in and saw the most beautiful billabong. The property Sue & Bill have created is breathtaking and what is more special is their story of of 40+ years of hard work to create their vision.
The cottage has so much charm and character that you feel the moment you walk in. It has everything you need from a perfect balcony overlooking the billabong to enjoy a wine, kitchen with a full pantry, very comfortable bed, robes and candles.
Sue & Bill are very generous hosts who left us local cheese to enjoy on arrival and the breakfast provisions were the best we have ever had. It was great to meet them and hear their story, they are both so warm and genuine.
We will be back!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a generous and lovely review. We love it when our guests feel very much at home, and best of all, want to come back for more. Your perception of and empathy with Wombat Bend spoke volumes, and clearly the billabong caught your imagination. Thank you for being such wonderful guests..... we look forward to your return soon.

“So close yet so far. A sanctuary tucked away in the heart of the Yarra Valley.”
Reviewed May 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We were looking for a weekend in the Yarra Valley, wineries on the Saturday, Healesville Sanctuary on the Sunday. Perfectly situated for both, we liked the sound of The Burrow but it exceeded all expectations. A wonderful welcome, a cosy home away from home, on the edge of a billabong with nature literally on the doorstep. Our stay all too brief, we will be back, for longer next time.

It was such a pleasure to have you stay in The Burrow, and your particular enjoyment and appreciation of our wildlife was very evident. We're also delighted that you felt your expectations were more than met, even in such a short time.

It will be wonderful to have you return for a longer visit ... and lots more wildlife conversations to share. Maybe we can tempt you with an experience of Eastern Pygmy Possums and Mountain Pygmy Possums, up close and personal.

warmest regards, Sue & Bill
