The overnight accommodation at Brae complements the homestead restaurant and expands the hospitality offering for diners. The rooms are approachable, authentic, handcrafted and personal in scale. The jury is impressed by the pleasing balance of the humble and luxurious, the hard and soft, the new and the timeless. Design elements reference the farm shed, contributing to a sense of being anchored in the rural landscape while thoughtful detailing and impeccable finishes elevate the experience. Though the design is highly considered, it's embracing and comfortable, befitting of country accommodation, which transcends demographics and is open to all. We appreciated the seamless connection to the ethics of the restaurant in the use of local labour resources and materials, sustainable initiatives and in the positioning of local produce as an extension of the restaurant meal.
Brae Restaurant and Accommodation were conceived and designed to provide a luxury, sustainable rural experience. Set amid 30 acres of productive farmland, the restaurant showcases the best locally grown produce, reflecting a connection to the land. The accommodation provides handcrafted, bespoke spaces for guests, completing the luxury dining experience.
