Sunnymeade B&B - A romantic getaway for couples in olde world luxury.
Sunnymeade Garden - A memorable visit to experience the beauty of an award winning extensive English style formal garden.
Hidden away in the picturesque tableland of Strathbogie in Victoria's North East just over 2 hours drive from Melbourne, you will find Sunnymeade.
The small farming property of 18.5 hectares purchased in 1978 by the Irving family, was first used as a week-ender. The first commercial plantings of wine grapes in the Strathbogie region of the tableland was established on the property in 1986. Since then, the small vineyard has established a reputation as a producer of premium quality wine grapes and award winning cool climate table wines.
The garden was started in 1978 and at that time was laid out informally around the original farm cottage which was subsequently demolished in 1990 to give way to the new Colonial-Georgian style sandstone dwelling. The garden was completely re-designed on formal lines to complement the new dwelling.
The formal garden incorporates many ideas and themes. Containing perennials and many rare and unusual plants, the garden is divided into a series of inter-connecting garden rooms each with its individual atmosphere or plantings. Amongst these are perennial borders, a rose garden, yellow garden and a sunken garden of hot colours.
Sunnymeade is a fully furnished self-contained luxury sandstone cottage for couples delightfully decorated in colonial style and perfect for a romantic getaway.
The bedroom with adjoining en-suite has a cosy queen size bed with doona and electric blanket. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave oven, gas cook-top, full size refrigerator and has abundant bench top area and storage cupboards. Comfortably furnished and heated, the living area is complimented with a colour television set, VCR, and CD stereo player as well as a library of books, magazines, Videos and CD's for your relaxation.
