The Burrow is a beautifully designed mudbrick and cedar retreat, offering self contained B&B accommodation in a purely natural Australian landscape. In the heartland of Melbourne's Yarra Valley, it's just one hour from the CBD or the Airport, and only ten minutes from Yarra Glen. Set beside a shady billabong, a paradise for the resident birdlife, this is a tranquil retreat for the couple seeking privacy and relaxation. In the heart of the Yarra Valley, you won't be short of things to do and places to go. But most of all, you'll pocket a wealth of take home memories of a close encounter with Nature, in a purely Australian setting that guarantees every comfort, perfect privacy and absolute quietude.

And if you are seeking a writer's retreat, or a photographer's inspiration, you have just found it. Naturally, it's Australian to the core ~ a serene and private retreat with every comfort provided. Watch the sun set over the billabong, a glass of wine beside you; birdsong by day, frogs by night, you're close to Nature and the stars, and a million miles away from stress. You'll feel so relaxed, you'll want to stay forever. More

Our guests are always respectful of our environment, our wildlife and our B&B itself. We are never disappointed because our guests always behave as though they are friends of ours, and that The Burrow is their home away from home. Leaving it clean, tidy and undamaged in any way seems always to be their own way of living too, and we really appreciate and value those standards. Our guests make it very easy for us to love them.

We are always extremely happy to engage with our guests if they wish it. However, we also respect privacy and make sure we do not invade guests' personal space. There are many things to experience in our Yarra Valley, so we are well prepared with maps and guides to assist in planning any day's activities., along with shopping and dining & wine tasting recommendations.

About the neighbourhood
The Yarra Valley is a region of rolling hills, forests, vineyards and farms, and towns both small and large, all set in the wide valley of the Yarra River that flows down from the Great Dividing Range. From quaint Warburton at its head all the way to the neighbouring Dandenong Ranges, there's a naturalness still to be experienced in a world that is rapidly losing touch with nature. There's great accommodation to be found at every level, and a warm welcome is guaranteed wherever you choose to put your head. We are proud of our region and love to share it with new- and old-comers alike. Come and see it for yourself.
Getting around
If you have your own transport (car) there is no limit to the places you can readily explore. We are well supplied with maps and guides to all attractions. There are also some excellent tour guides who will tailor a day tour to meet your interests, enabling even the shortest amount of time to be fully maximised.
