"One of the most beautiful cities in the north-east ..... a town for people to relocate to" says Coxy of COXY'S BIG BREAK (Ensign 24 April 13).

Immaculate, cosy and spacious 110 year old Rushton Cottage offers all the essentials of a modern home while retaining the cosy feel of yesteryear. Featuring polished original floorboards and high wood lined ceilings, Rushton Cottage is set in a restful mature cottage garden shaded by magnificent Jacaranda and Silver Birch trees.

The traditional cottage is set in a quiet yet exceptionally well located tree lined street a few minutes walk from shops, restaurants, hotels, lake-side walk, award winning Benalla Art Gallery, tennis, rowing, bike-riding, BMX/skate park and much, much more.

Rushton Cottage's three bedrooms (1 queen-bed and en-suite; 1 double-bed room, 1 twin bed room) feature crisp air-dried linen, and fluffy luxurious towels.

The Cottage has a fully equipped modern family style kitchen with bench-top stove, wall oven, microwave, dish-washer and a separate laundry area with clothes dryer and washing machine.

Enjoy a BBQ in the private botanical setting; perhaps a slow breakfast and newspaper on the deck of the vine covered breakfast nook, or dinner in the shade of the Jacaranda in the secluded and secure rear garden.

Or ... abandon any notion of cooking and wander along to one of Benalla's many fine eateries to savor the casual and the fine dining offered by our local talent.

Children can fossick for hours in the "magic" garden with toys and garden tools for exploring the "diggable" rear garden full of insects, butterflies, flowers to pick for mum and dad, and herbs/ seasonal vegies to harvest.

Air-conditioning, gas heating & electric blankets make any season comfortable.

Off-street parking for 3 cars, large screen TV, sound system and a designated pet space are provided.

Benalla has theatres (Benalla Performing Arts Centre and the delightfully 50s style "Jaffa-down-the aisle" Swanpool Cinema), two golf courses, Gliding Club, Winton Raceway and award winning wineries nearby. For a beautiful and relaxing day trip graze your way to Wangaratta, Mansfield, Beechworth and Yackandandah.

If you're coming to Benalla for a special event or wanting a relaxing well-appointed home-style base for a holiday in the North East, Rushton Cottage is ideal - excellent value, cosy and well located.

Rushton Cottage is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had an excellent stay at Rushton with our two larger dogs. They loved their sunny back yard and we all enjoyed snoozing by the fire. Located in walking distance to everything yet still tucked away for peace and quiet, this was a love place for us to spend a romantic weekend away. Jane was an excellent host, great correspondence and recommendations to make our time more memorable. In a great location for visiting heritage towns like Beechworth (which we did, a must do!) and the Ned Kelly area, we really enjoyed our walk through history. Rushton included (actually we would love to know its heritage also!). Cant thank you enough for such a relaxed, and welcome stay for us and our four legged family, we almost didn't want to leave!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rushton Cottage is large, comfortable and relaxing. We had a small reunion of old friends and there was plenty of room inside as well as a lovely garden and BBQ area for the kids to play in. The extra touches like port, chocolates and an enormous bouqet of roses just added to a great weekend getaway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We enjoyed our overnight stay both on the way to Victoria and back to Canberra. The house has a quaint, olden days athmosphere, with lovely gardens,cosy bedrooms and well appointed living areas. Even though it is walking distance from the lake and town it has quiet and peaceful surroundings. The owners were welcoming with chocolate,cherry and flowers and overall very helpful and accomodating.
