“Everything you could want except excess”
Reviewed 5 February 2018 for a stay in October 2017

After a 2 night stay here in October we returned home refreshed, renewed and chomping at the bit to get back ......... so here we are about to head up the Hume again to get back to the birds, the morning mist and that amazing wall of books.

Perfectly positioned 5 minutes from what you need and years away from the hustle and bustle - your hostess is just lovely, greeting you when you arrive and then politely slipping away to leave you in peace to enjoy all that this wonderful stay has to offer.

Yes, the facilities are paired back but that is the absolute charm of this place - a fully functioning kitchenette a place to get clean and a super comfy bed all compliment the stunning surrounds ............ Oh, and a brilliant BBQ set up tops it all off.

Jenny and I kept cracking the line from "The Castle" ............ "How's the Serenity ............ So much Serenity"

“Peaceful & Relaxing Getaway”
Reviewed 24 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

So close to town, and yet you could be in the middle of nowhere. This charming cottage is cosy and comfortable and has everything you need, including a kitchenette. The bathroom is small but functional. There is a wall of books to choose from if you are a reader, and a TV and wi-fi. The surroundings are beautiful, quiet in a country way and it's so relaxing. We watched the sunrise over the hills and vineyard, absolutely beautiful. The hosts are just lovely, and not far away if you need anything. We would have loved to stay longer.

“Excellent stay at Candlebark”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Stayed last weekend, booked some months ago as a mini holiday. Easy to book, Fleur is quick to respond and very helpful. Her directions were easy to follow even in the dark!! The cabin is peaceful, surrounded by birdlife, horses and beautiful scenic views. Inside it is comfortable, warm and cosy. It has everything you'll need for a great weekend away. Easy drive into Beechworth, and pleasant hub for daytrips to neighbouring areas. We had a lovely weekend.

“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.
