Book now for winter escapes, romantic getaways & school holiday fun !
Situated in the village of Dalveen 40K South of Warwick and 15K north of Stanthorpe, the Straw House B&B is a unique style of accommodation. The buildings are made of straw bales and stucco making them both warm in winter, cool in summer and insulated from the outside world. You can either stay in a cottage or in the Big Straw House. The Straw House BNB is set on 22 acres which you are welcome to explore. Take a walk through the apple orchard and in season sample the fruit, take a bottle of wine and a cheese platter to the dam and enjoy with the turtles, visit the chickens, or see what’s in season in our kitchen garden where sampling is encouraged. There is lots of room to roam and to relax. Kids and dogs are very welcome at the Straw House and undercover parking is available for all visitors.
NEW to the Straw House. During social isolation we have been busy. We have two new permanent guests Aklan and Bahookie. They are Scottish Highland Cattle and they would love you to feed them afternoon tea and give them a scratch. We have also built a fire pit for you to enjoy. See photos of both in the gallery section.
There is also much to do outside the gates of the Straw House. We are just a few minutes from not only some of the region’s best wineries, (favourites include Heritage Estate and The Summit) but also a stones throw from the Maze, Law Dogs, The Christmas Farm, Stanthorpe Cheese and Sutton’s Juice Factory, Cidery and Café with their award-winning products and the best cake, coffee, hot chocolate and apple pie abound. Travel through Stanthorpe for more wineries and specialty establishments and if you desire walk it all off at one of the region's famous national parks which include Girraween, Bald Rock and Sundowner.

What a delightful time we all had! Thank you Anna and Tony for your embracing welcome to not only Steve and I, but also my daughter and 14 month old granddaughter. I think our puppies had the best time! Whisky and Soda our labs loved the space, company of Hugo and Stanley, and your accommodation - particularly the fireplace! Breakfast was spectacular! Dinner was superb! Above all you generously recognised Steve's birthday weekend with a beautiful personal touch.
“Perfect gateway to the Granite Belt
We have just returned from a wonderful weekend away in Stanthorpe and surrounds, staying at The Straw House B&B. Anna and Tony could not have been more wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they were more than friendly and helpful and happy to chat. Each morning a delicious hot, home cooked breakfast was delivered to the room.
The property was perfect for a wander at any time of the day or afternoon, which meant we spotted birds, rabbits and the gorgeous highland cattle, that are hand fed every afternoon with an invitation to join in.
The accommodation is at the gateway to the granite belt and literally around the corner from award winning wineries and Sam's the fruit and vegetable shop. We decided to drive back to Warwick on the Old Stanthorpe Rd, which had no traffic and really lent itself to the 'Sunday country drive'.
We had the most wonderful weekend away in the straw cottage, it was warm and welcoming and comfortable, with beautiful quilts and a homely feel, with the welcome treat of chocolate brownies and an eclectic range of reading materials if you came empty handed. I wish we had more time to explore the beautiful Granite Belt region, but no doubt we will be back, and we know where to stay.
“Charming private cottage-style studio bnb. You share a very thick wall so would never know others were there unless you wanted to. Anna and Tony are friendly and down to earth with a lovely property and they are good cooks! Hot breakfast is served to your cottage studio on a tray so great for people like us who prefer privacy on a couple's weekend away. Location is near the main highway but cottage walls are very thick and noise will not disturb you. Heating is via an electric fireplace but Anna and Tony are happy to light the outdoor fire pit if real flames are a must.
“Wonderful accommodating hosts. The grounds and orchard are lovely for an afternoon walk and our room was exceptional. The breakfast makes you wish you were staying another night and the attention to detail makes this an exceptional B & B to stay in. Would recommend to anyone, at any time, for any reason. We left feeling valued as guests and would definitely stay again if the opportunity arose. Thank you guys. 10/10 🙂”

On behalf of Cooper the cavoodle and myself I would to express my total delight in having the honour to spend a night at the Straw House. It was so warm and inviting and you made us feel so welcomed. The food was delicious, nothing like a home cooked meal. Cooper is still pining for the sheep doorstop but you can’t have everything. I am sure to come back with my family.
Again thank you so much for your hospitality.
10/10 no lie.
“The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming. A last minute booking, yet the room was exceptionally clean and well equipped. They welcome you personally, are full of knowledge of the area and local restaurants (though they haven't even been running the place for more than 6 months) and offer extra services like a baby bed just out of gratuity. We've had the most pleasant stay walking around the apple orchard and a wonderful night sleep in a very comfortable bed. The breakfast deserves a special mention as it's served personally to you with no effort spared. A service bar none, the hosts really go above and beyond.”
Beautiful location and easy to find. My husband and I had a wonderful mini holiday enjoying the wineries around Stanthorpe. The room was comfortable and cosy. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious.”

Fantastic hosts with a gorgeous Bed and Breakfast. Anna is very welcoming with an immaculately clean property, beautiful amenities and an absolutely glorious breakfast of local produce, house baked bread and even fresh eggs from the onsite chickens! The two gorgeous doggos really make the place feel like home as well. A tiny gem in Dalveen, we can't wait to visit again and spend a bit more time in the area.

We had a wonderful stay in the lovely straw house! The facilities are clean & tidy. A great coffee machine, milk in the fridge with fresh cookies when we arrived was a lovely touch. The breakfast they provided was next level good!! A smorgasbord of things to taste & snack on in the morning. Not to mention the best omelette I’ve ever had!! They were friendly & personable hosts who went the extra mile to make our stay great! Would definitely stay again. The dog friendly element was exactly what we needed too. Thanks again for a great stay!!
