Cortes Cottage offers a tranquil country escape. Set in one of Australias oldest operating Walnut farm 'Valley Nut Groves' and with views of Mount Buffalo the cottage is a wonderful place to relax.

The space

The Ski Fields of Mt Hotham and Falls Creek are only a one and a half hour drive and with numerous wineries and boutique farms close by, Cortes Cottage is an ideal place from which to explore the region.

The cottage is located only 15 minutes from historic Beechworth, which has numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and historical sites. You can explore a little further and find yourself in Bright which has further gourmet food options.

The region is home to some of Victorias best inland fishing, as well as having numerous bushwalking and mountain biking tracks. The cottage is also a 5 minute walk from the Ovens river, which is only accessible through the property. Here you can enjoy swimming, fishing and kayaking safe in the knowledge that there will be no-one to disturb you. For the keen golfer there is a challenging and well laid out golf course only 10 minutes away, or you could venture a little further to tee off at the Porepunkah golf course.

The cottage was recently renovated to a very high standard, and although rustic in appearance, it has a luxurious modern interior, with all of the modern conveniences that you would expect from a boutique country escape. The period weatherboard cottage has an inviting north facing polished concrete verandah where you can sit, relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air. If it is too cold outside then why not sit by the original brick fireplace and warm up.

The cottage is a great place to stay if attending weddings, anniversaries or other events in the area. We will also be more than happy to provide you with recommendations and advice about the region.

If we are around, we are more than happy to give you a tour of the Walnut Farm and its processing plant.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask!!

Cortes Cottage is a total dream. Renovated thoughtfully with warm and stylish touches situated in a small piece of Heaven. The surrounds are beautiful, quiet and green with lovely trees and birds singing everywhere. The records and player were a great touch and well used. Tons of great movies and TV shows on the hard drive as well. The bed is so comfortable and the linen high quality (I notice these things and they are important to me). The bathroom is gorgeous with a washing machine available if you're stopping longer. Ronaldo and his mum are lovely hosts, giving us some of their walnuts to enjoy. We loved every single moment and can't wait to return. A hidden gem!

Ronaldo was a responsive and informative host. We found his space to be really welcoming, airy and light. His little touches (like a bag of walnuts fresh from the farm) made our stay all the better. Thanks Ronaldo!

Thoughtfully equipped and comfortable cottage for a relaxing stay in the tranquil surrounds of Ronaldo’s family walnut farm. Particularly appreciated the efforts taken to integrate the fully refurbished cottage within the established garden and trees. Makes the whole package that much more relaxing and serene.

The cottage is absolutely perfect. It has everything you need and is on a beautiful farm that you can explore. The cottage is very cosy and equipped with all you need. The location works well as you're approx 20mins from Milawa and Beechworth. Would definitely come back!

The stay was everything we hoped it would be. A perfect escape to get away from it all. Ronaldo showed great attention to detail - the place was spotless, the bike tyres and balls were all pumped up and the beds super comfy. We'll definitely stay here again.

Highly recommended. Ronaldo has thought of everything. Cottage was exceptioally comfortable/cosy and we had a great weekend. Location was ideal, close to Gapstead winery where we attended a wedding and we rode our biles on the rail trail every opportunity we had. Thanks Ronaldo
