Garden Cottage is within our cool climate, woodland garden and so offers visitors a private and secluded stay in a stunning garden setting. The cottage is very well appointed and allows you to indulge in rest, reading or more active pursuits like tennis at the adjacent court or walking in and around the bushland of Stanley - or perhaps down to the Stanley Pub for a meal, just a five minute walk. We've recently put in a pool which sits overlooking our arboretum and chestnut orchard.
Garden Cottage is self-contained and located within our established woodland garden in the small rural township of Stanley, north east Victoria. This is quite simply a glorious spot - calm, quiet and yet just 10 minutes from historic Beechworth. One guest said it was 'head clearing' space which can't be bad! The cottage has a queen-sized bed and lovely crisp, cotton sheets.
Set in an established woodland garden containing many rare and interesting plants, many people enjoy a wander in the grounds or further out into the chestnut orchard/woodland.
We find that many people want to stay simply to wind down, watch the birdlife, go for long walks, read or maybe even write that novel (and we do have writers who come to stay for lengthy periods).
Beechworth offers extensive shopping - as well as all the basics - and the selection of food and places to eat is impressive. This region is one of the most highly respected by gourmet travellers and day trips out into the wineries and beyond are always inspiring.
Day trips can also include travelling up into the Alps, walking in the mountains and really experiencing just what this diverse and very beautiful north eastern landscape has to offer.
We endeavour to be as environmentally responsible as we can and recently we were delighted to be short-listed in the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Tourism Awards Eco-Friedly category - not bad for a little country cottage.
You have all of the technology you can possibly need, new TV/DVD, a great kitchen and even a washing machine for the longer stays. And, apparently, one of the most comfortable sofas around...please feel free to contact us if we can help at all.
In addition, guests are welcome to use our swimming pool.
As an accredited cycle friendly business and as cyclists, we can offer extensive local knowledge, suggestions and information for your cycling holiday.
We can also offer drop off and pick up with bikes for a fee.
