Location

Tyntynder Lodge is set in Tyntynder Lane - a quiet country tree lined lane that finishes at the Ovens River. It only contains three houses and has no through traffic. There is a park opposite our cottages.

From the back gate of the cottages it is 50 metres to the start of the riverside walks that are one of the main tourist attractions of Bright. Walk into Bright along one of these flat, beautifully maintained walks or walk the other way into pristine bush with the delightful Ovens River gurgling beside you.

Tessies House and Tessies Studio are at the end of a quiet court off Mountbatten Avenue opposite the Arboretum (large park). It is an easy 8 minute flat walk into town. Alternatively it is less than 2 minutes walk across a park to get to the river.

Local Attractions

Bright is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Australia and yet still remains a peaceful haven for nature lovers with its glorious European scenery and atmosphere. It is close to Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham & Falls Creek for skiing, bush walking etc.

Day trips to historic Beechworth, Mt Buffalo, Milawa, Rutherglen and the ski fields are all possible from this idyllic base

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the 8th time we have visited this place - and every time we come we meet people who are on their return visits just like us. It is the best place we have ever had a holiday in. The staff are so helpful and friendly; the units are spotless - really large and set in a most beautiful fully fenced garden. They have won so many awards and I can see why. Somebody really cares about this place and it shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This beautiful cottage was my favourite. I did not want to leave. It was stunning, immaculate, tea, coffee, sugar and milk supplied and every thing was as I had expected. Everything was there. Even pegs for the clothes line out the back. Had wash machine, clothes dryer, airconditioning in lounge area, dishwasher, etc. Linen on bed was just beautiful, china and glassware was lovely. All matching and clean. Everything was spotless!!!!! Our 2 poodles had a complaint to make - they did not want to leave and would not get in the car to go home!
