Skye & Jay

Bed & Broccoli is a home away from home.
Nikki & Scott are so welcoming and the animal residents are gorgeous.

This place is magical and we can't wait to visit again

Sam & Tim

After three long years of juggling a busy career, motherhood and a graduate diploma, I was just about out of steam.

With my last ever exam looming, I needed something extra special to reward myself for the hard work. I wanted to go somewhere where I could just stop and be still and have someone take care of me for a little while...and that oasis was Bed and Broccoli in Elphinestone, Victoria, about an hours easy drive from Melbourne airport.
My father Keith was up for a bush adventure and joined me for the three night stay. We were greeted by Scott as Nikki was busy with one of the baby kangaroos that is being raised until old enough to release back into the 60 acres of bushland that their vegan B & B resides on.
We were also met by the official welcoming committee Khan and Chaz, Nikki and Scott's dogs who were delighted to see us and took up residence on our front porch along with their flock of wonderful rescue chickens
The converted barn was cosy and clean and we enjoyed the fire nightly. I bunkered down on the lounge while Dad took the bedroom (at my insistence), I think I had the prime spot, sleeping wholely and deeply with the warm glow of the fire each night.
An under estimated delight was Nikki's cooking. Having been a long term follower of Bed and Broccoli on facebook, I knew she was an accomplished cook however her culinary skills were world class and way beyond the high expectations we came with! Meal after meal was a delight for the tastebuds and the generous and loved filled vegan meals nourished us.
We were blessed enough to spend time in their forest and spotted a large mob of kangaroos bounding along. We were also honoured to spot resident kangaroo Boo on the front lawn at dusk one evening.
I was very pleased with myself in pre-arranging for Kerri of A Journey to Better Living to come to the B&B and give me a traditional Hawaiian massage. How luxurious to have her come out to the property and I would recommend this to any future guests - being able to sink in front of the fire on the lounge and doze afterwards only added to the luxury of the experienc.
Overall we loved our time with Nikki and Scott and their beloved rescue animals. We came for rest and relaxation and left having gained so much more.
Until next time,

Bed & Broccoli is so much more than just a B&B.
Stunning surroundings, amazing breakfasts and spacious lodgings is only part if the experience. It's the 4 legged, 2 legged and winged residents that I guarantee will leave you with a bigger heart and restoration in humanity!

Serena & Delano

This was the best weekend of our lives. The most amazing experience anyone could ever have surrounded by beautiful nature & animals that are cared for by the most incredible hosts anyone could ever ask for; Nikki & Scott.
AND I proposed here! It was perfect! This will be a regular trip for many years to come, without a doubt.

Tom & Monica

Being vegan the commercial world can be a challenging place sometimes and being able to come here for refuge is just so ...... well, we're so lucky!!! Your B&B is a truly magical place & a community that is loving, healing & safe. It's an inspirational place & a reminder that one person's dream (in this case a little red hens dream, Miss Dinks) can be achieved & you can make a big difference. This is not just a vegan B&B - it's a sanctuary for the soul xoxo

Alicia & Michael

Micheal & Melanie

We had a great stay. Very relaxing. Loved getting to know all the residents. Love to come back again!

Chris & Gemma

We felt like it was a vegan home away from home. It was the perfect calm environment to appreciate happy animals existing for their own purpose. The food was delicious - I'll be recommending it to my family, vegan or pre-vegan because we thought the kindness of Bed & Broccoli can show them a compassionate way of living.

Lola & Brodie

We've stayed at B&B twice already & we already look forward to coming back for Nikki's amazing banana pancakes.
B&B is a very special place for me as when I come, it reminds me of the reason I became vegan & am still vegan today......kindness to all creatures. Nikki & Scott are so wonderfully generous & their fur babies are beautiful. It's a beautiful place to stay to relax, unwind & be reminded of the more important things in life.

Being two vegans we usually have to be very attentive to each detail when travelling to make sure that our food doesn't contain any animal product.

Along with the absolute peacefulness of the surrounding Bed & Broccoli (Nikki & Scott) take that extra stress away from the experience. Perfect for total vegan bliss and relaxation

Luke & Emilie

Alex & Jo

A true slice of vegan heaven away from the city! You'll love watching the hens & roosters go about their day with the serious business of dust bathing and scratching for food, LOVE the wonderful food, hospitality from Nikki & Scott, & laugh at Khan & Chaz coming in to see if there's any food for them. You'll never be alone with a Khan-sized shadow. It's beautiful to see a business with compassion doing a beautiful thing; showing others how to live peacefully & with no violence while missing out on nothing

Bed & Broccoli is the perfect place to kick back and relax. You get to see the best side of humanity here

Shane & Andrew

Dearest Nikki, Scott, Khan, Chaz, Squirty, Frankie, Pacific, Delilah, Samson, William and the boys, Rio & the girls.... Thank you so much for your warm generosity and hospitality here at Bed & Broccoli. Not only did we have a relaxing time and an enjoyable stay, we loved bonding with you all. We felt right at home and completely comfortable and thankful knowing we are vegan and part of such a loving community. We hope B&B's love and compassion touches more people and we hope more 'pre-vegans' make the choice after spending time as part of your family. We also hope your ideals spread further throughout Shepparton and beyond. We look forward to visiting you all again in the future and we'll ensure we bring more corn, apples, pats and love. We wish you all the best for your thriving community here. All our love, Justine & Chris

Justine & Chris

Scott & Nikki, thank you for this amazing experience! Our only regret is that we only stayed two nights here – I wish we could stay forever!

Returning for the second time to Bed & Broccoli we were just as impressed with our whole experience as the first

Adrian & Renée

If you love animals, amazing food and need to “get away” for a while, Bed & Broccoli is the place for you. A real home away from home!

Ashleen & Adrian

Bed & Broccoli is calm, rejuvenating, lovely and populated by lovely people (Nikki & Scott) and lovely animals. Felt like home but better!

Rebecca

It was so lovely to come to a place where the hosts are genuinely warm, welcoming and accommodating for their guests needs (mine was learning how to make baklava!!). Nikki & Scott, sincere thanks, but also congratulations on a lovely getaway.

Caroline & Greg

Thank you for a wonderful stay – the cottage was lovely & had every comfort imaginable. The food was inspiring & the animal company a most delightful addition. Thanks for opening your home and pets to us. We’ll be back again come winter for the fireplace an the comfort food. Tracy & Laurence xxx

Tracy & Laurence

Nikki & Scott – what can we say but we had the best weekend!! It honestly felt like we were visiting friends that we just hadn’t met yet! The food was delicious – you’re a wonderful cook. But it was the laughs, few beers and beautiful animals that made the weekend away special. Thank you for your hospitality! We will definitely be back. Mel & Mike xx

Mel & Mike - Winner of Vegan Easy Challenge 2011

It was lovely to have wonderful vegan food we didn’t have to cook or clean up from. There was a split second disappointment with dinner on the first night when we thought it had cheese by mistake – then we remembered where we were! :)

Cherie & Danika

We had an extremely relaxing time, just what we needed – food was fantastic. Great intro to vegan eating for anyone who is a sceptic about the vegan way of eating. Nikki and Scott are great hosts, along with the furry & feathered friends. Thanks.

Marisa & Bernie

I don’t think our stay could be improved in any way. This was the perfect ‘home away from home’ for us. The ultimate little getaway location, fabulous ambience, delicious food & wonderful company.

Casey & Brendan

We had a fantastic time, Nikki & Scott are wonderful hosts! The hospitality, ambience, food and the amazing animals made us feel very at home. Thank you so much. “We will be back soon!

All I can say is! When can we move in? Tim & I loved our stay here. Scott & Nikki are extremely welcoming. Food is divine. We look forward to our next visit.

Tim & Sarah

How could you get any better than Australia’s first vegan bed & breakfast? Perfect escape from the city. Gay friendly & surrounded by loved animals. We’ll be back!

Curtis & Silver

My wife arranged our stay at Bed & Broccoli as a bit of a random surprise – so I had no idea we were driving out past Shepparton. I’ve never ‘gotten’ B&Bs, but now I do! This was a terrific break from the norm for me – beautiful farm lands all around and a great mix of comfort, privacy, nature & catering. The animals were all a treat to meet, feed & pat. The food was scrumptious – what a great thing knowing everything was veggie/vegan. Nikki & Scott were very friendly & accomodating without being intrusive. I’m no B&B head, but I think I am now – I thoroughly recommend Bed & Broccoli to any and everyone.

Found somewhere else in this world where I feel I can breathe.
The only other one is my home.
How does one thank you for that?
A tiny paradise in a crazy & cruel world. Don’t change x

The Bed & Broccoli has such a friendly, relaxing atmosphere. We were welcomed with open arms and it felt more like we were staying with close friends! The food was amazing and plentiful. All the little extras made us feel welcome and comfortable, such as wine & dips on arrival. We can’t wait to visit again.

Tess & Shane

Nikki & Scott have made us feel so welcome. From the moment we arrived we’ve been treated like family. Bed & Broccoli is not just a getaway, it’s an experience. Everything has been thought of and nothing is too much trouble. The food was superb, the accommodation is luxurious, the location is tranquil. This is absolute paradise for both people and animals. We love it! Thank you.

    From the moment that we stepped out of the car and received a big warm hug from Nikki we knew this was going to be a wonderful place to stay.
    As a new convert to vegetarianism (Jenni) and looking at veganism, seeing what Nikki and Scott have set up is a fantastic home away from home. And the games room was a winner.
    Will be back, and spreading the word
