“Fantastic rustic style with the mod cons”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We really loved this place. It's a farmstay not too far out from Beechworth. It looks, feels and even smells like a place from another era, but with all the conveniences of home. It is a single very large room with an attached bathroom. It has a small kitchen area, suitable for small scale cooking activities, and a barbecue. There is an extensive library covering a wide range of tastes- and it's a lovely place to sit outside and read. There's a vineyard out back; several places to eat outdoors, covered and uncovered (amongst the olive trees). The view over the fields- including the horses trying to get your affection- is peaceful and relaxing.

It's not too many km out from Beechworth; the woolshed falls are about 4.5km away (bring swimming gear)- close enough for a work if you're feeling energetic; there's a nice lookout not too far away.

Highly recommended.

Candlebark Retreat is a great winter getaway: Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts.
Staying for three nights afforded us the opportunity to absorb the serenity and explore our environs. Kookaburras, wrens and parrots welcomed us and awakening to a cacophony of birds was so relaxing. You can't get better than Candlebark Retreat.
The best mattress we've ever slept on (more comfortable than home)! Great heating and a well-appointed kitchen make it the perfect weekend.
Location-wise you can't do better than the shopping & pubs/cafes at Beechworth - a five minute drive, Woolshed Falls, Yackandandah, Stanley, El Dorado: Candlebark Retreat is central to everything.
Looking forward to regular visits.
Thanks so much Fleur and Digby, Salty and Lily, Banjo and the neighbours cows!

“Perfect Destress Location”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Candlebark Retreat is a beautiful cottage situated just outside of Beechworth. It is peaceful and has stunning views of the vista. Excellent place for a getaway. Fleur and Digby were great hosts. The cottage feels like you are visiting a friend's place. Homely and cozy.

“Comfort. Cosiness. Peace!”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A lovely clean getaway cottage, set up to make you feel at home (unlike the sterility of most motels). Fleur was a wonderful host and took our request into consideration gladly. A gorgeous place to chill out and relax and if you want to do the touristy things in Beechworth etc, you are not far away. Recommend it highly!
