Staying at Sherbrooke Manor is all about sharing a time of elegance and romance in a wonderful mountain setting where you can ramble through the Sherbrooke Forest, or visit the famous Alfred Nicholas Gardens and boathouse right next door.

Built in the 1930s, Sherbrooke Manor is from the era of the famous Burnham Beeches, then owned by the Nicholas (Aspro) family who created their estate and what is now known as the Alfred Nicholas Gardens on the edge of Sherbrooke Forest. Burnham Beeches is currently being restored by Melbourne's famous chef, Shannon Bennett and a consortium of partners - so destined to become, once again, the centre for food lovers from all over the world.
