The Buckland Studio Retreat

McCormack's Lane , Buckland Valley
Bright , Victoria , Australia
61 (4) 1913 3318

The attending wombats, king parrots, echidnas, and wallabies provide a constant reminder that this romantic country escape is set in one of the world’s most varied natural habitats. At the foot of Mount Buffalo, the four stone-and-corrugated-iron studios stand in stylish contrast (taupe walls and duvets, overstuffed club furniture, a fully equipped kitchen) to the surrounding farmland. Each studio has two decks, to better take in views of vineyards, olive groves, and distant mountains. A casual café serves a nouvelle Australian breakfast, such as crispy pancetta, mushrooms, and poached eggs on toasted sourdough with homemade baked beans.
