A mudbrick Bed & Breakfast
in the Yarra Valley

Relax and enjoy the tranquillity…
soothe your soul by the banks of our billabong.

Everybody falls in love with The Burrow – it invites you to take your foot off the pedal, sink into a chair and breathe. The sense of welcome, the snuggly rugs and soft pure linen, the permission to lose yourself for an hour in a book, or investigate the treasures throughout The Burrow. There’s no To Do list here, put the kettle on, put your feet up, gaze through the window and let the billabong work its magic.

Why do couples keep returning for more? Some say it is the breeze through the trees, the richness of birdsong and the frog chorus at night. For others, it’s the shimmering water, the lemon perfume of the early spring wattle, and the flash of the bronze wing pigeon. Witnessing the moon rising over the billabong, or the early morning mist, with crunchy frost underfoot – every time you visit, there’s something new.

    A wonderfully relaxing long weekend in a slice of heaven we didn't know existed: stunning vista, birdsong and being able to hear the wind in the trees. The gorgeous 'Burrow' was so … More cosy and comfortable, with a mesmerising outlook over the billabong; beautifully appointed and catered for with amazing treats. And the bed: fabulous linen sheets, the warmest hugging doona, and probably the most comfortable bed ever slept on. Tranquil, relaxing and utterly restorative - do yourself a favour, book now.

    What a delightful place to stay! From the cheery welcome on arrival to the reluctant goodbyes on leaving, my heart was filled with warmth and gratitude to know that our hosts, two gentle souls, Bill … More and Sue, still work tirelessly to improve our troubled world.The secluded, peaceful haven that they have created for guests, is a testament to their beliefs. The native vegetation and the billabong on the property, attract a myriad of birdlife, making for a very relaxing, peaceful environment to escape from everyday life.Being country folk, we were especially surprised to drink tank waterin accommodation so close to Melbourne. It just felt like home!The well stocked pantry and locally sourced fresh, quality provisions, made cooking a pleasure. On our first night, weary from travelling the Yarra Glen Pub, just down the road, served us fabulous meals.With appointments in the city Friday and Monday, our 3 night stay at The Burrow was perfect. The city, an easy drive from Dixons Creek. With the weekend to explore the lovely Yarra Valley, hot air ballooning with Global Ballooning, Bruno"s Sculpture Garden at Marysville, and Alowyn Gardens were all on the list.Thank you Sue and Bill, for making our stay so comfortable, easy and relaxing.Looking forward to future visits.

    I spent five days at one of The Burrow's cosy cottages. I walked, wrote, slept like a wombat and drank cups of tea shawled in one of an array of soft knitted blankets. I'm grateful to Sue … More and Bill for taking such good care of me. I miss Sue's cooking already.

    A truly beautiful, calming and picturesque sanctuary in the heart of the Yara Valley. Sue and Bill are the most welcoming hosts and we feel so lucky to have them share their slice of heaven with … More us.We spent 3 nights at The Burrow, Bill set up a lovely fire by the billabong on our final night where we watched the sun go down, toasted marshmallows and watched the many birds settle into the night. Sue had everything we needed and so much more in the guest house, we felt so spoilt with all the, breakfast essentials plus more, treats and homemade lemonade(delicious!!)Who stole the show though were the beautiful Airedale dogs Sue and Bill adore and care for. The most beautiful dogs we have come across. You can really tell that so much love and passion has been put into creating The Burrow. We cannot recommend this place enough and cannot wait to return in the near future.
