If you are coming from Melbourne take the Melba Highway fork after passing through Coldstream and continue about two kilometres. You will come to the Yering Primary School at the top of the second rise. We are located on the other side going towards Yarra Glen, just next to the school. The entrance to the property is down the hill on the right. Turn right and sharp right to go up our driveway to the reception area in the house at the top of the drive.

If you are coming along the Melba Highway through Yarra Glen, we are some 4-5 kilometres out of Yarra Glen towards Coldstream, on the left, just past  Yering Farm Winery (also on the left).

"Exceptional" Excellent attention to detail including the breakfast choices in fridge , DVD collection , luxury feel of everything in the room and beautiful gardens and outlook .



January, 2019

"Luxury and Location" Little extras that really were unexpected but made it more like a home away from home. More than a B&B, the appointments in the bedroom and bathroom in particular were more like a luxury hotel - Molton Brown toiletries with a variety of soaps, sewing kit, clothes brush and safe in the bedroom - all more than expected but lovely to have. Hosts were informative and available but not intrusive. Cleanliness was above standard. Ample breakfast with 12 different varieties of tea and 3 types of coffee was supplied, with great options for continental or cooked, and as a treat we had fresh muffins left for us while we were out sight seeing.

"Absolutely amazing place to spend our first night as a married couple" We chose John & Sandra's wonderful property as our place to stay after our wedding night and we weren’t disappointed. Its a wonderful property, all the amenities needed, comfy bed, and a spa to top it off. Not to mention the amazing service that John offers. Will definitely recommend.
