Reidford Cottage takes its name from the Reidford Hotel which was one of eight Hotels in the Sebastapol area in the late 1880’s during the Gold Rush period. The nearby river crossing to Byrne Gully Road, took its name from the family of Joe Byrne, a member of bushranger Ned Kelly’s gang that lived there. During the 1880’s there was a settlement of approximately 3000 mining for gold in this area.

We have 40 acres of bushland adjacent to the Chiltern/Mt Pilot National Park and the cottage is part of our home property, secluded from the road. Breakfast on your own balcony and be entertained by the birds. The kangaroos, birds and other native animals find safety and peace in their surroundings and are well used to sharing their space with humans. Consequently we have the rare opportunity of watching them rear their young at very close quarters.

Our cosy cottage is compact and comfortable. Ideal for a couple or family with up to 2 children. There is a queen size bed and a small bunk room for 2 children, modern bathroom and kitchen. Outside barbecue, TV, indoor and outdoor eating areas.

At Reidford, we practice sustainability and are not connected to the electricity grid or reticulated town water. We have a stand alone solar power system and water is provided by dams and rainwater tanks. The cottage is comfortably heated in winter with gas heating, and air conditioned in summer. There are numerous walks on the property and along tracks the adjacent National Park. The tracks in the National Park are great for Mountain Biking. Nearby Reedy Creek is a popular spot for gold panning.

We are 15mins to the fabulous restaurants and shopping of Beechworth or 30 mins to Milawa and the Wine and Food trail. Bike hire is available in Beechworth making this an ideal holiday spot for people who love the outdoors.

We have a small friendly dog which has the run of the property and we would advise guests that they should be comfortable with having a dog around.

As dog owners we enjoy traveling with our dog and welcome guest's dogs. If fully house trained, small to medium sized dogs are free to go inside the cottage, but are not allowed on bedding or furniture. We prefer that large dogs are accommodated on the enclosed front deck. Please advise us of the number and breed of dogs that you wish to bring when inquiring. We also request that guests do not allow their dogs to harass wildlife. Since we have abundant birdlife, cats must be kept in a cage whilst outside, and also inside to avoid damage to furniture. We also ask that intending guests advise whether they seek to bring exotic pets.

Intending guests should also be sympathetic to the notion of living sustainably.

Please note that there are minimum stay provisions during peak holiday periods; 3 nights for Easter,Christmas/New Year, 2 nights for Jan/Feb School Holidays and long weekends, 1 night all other times.

ACCOMMODATION RATES. Our rates are dependent of bedding and room requirements, so please do not rely on the tariff calculator. The cottage has a Queen bed in the main bedroom and 2 bunks in the 2nd bedroom. Please let us know your requirements at the time of your initial inquiry so that we may confirm the overall tariff for your intended stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing accomodation wiht amazing hosts. We visited the area for a wedding on the weekend and were thrilled with the cosy, immaculately kept cottage. Comfy beds, well appointed kitchen, spectacular spot which we would recommend to all. Our host, Wayne, went out of his way to help us with getting to and from the wedding and was so helpful and informative. We would recommend this property to all and will certainly stay there when we visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serenity Want to chill out for a while, this is the place. Very peaceful and tranquil setting, in a typical bush land setting. Was made very welcome by our hosts who were willing to share an insight into the history of the valley and the property. It was interesting to hear and experience the advantages and limitations of living in an "off grid" location. I would recommend this property for a total escape from the rat race. Limited 3G Telstra coverage, but that's not a bad thing is it :) (Hosts do allow contact via their landline for urgent messages)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serene Getaway Comfortable and very peaceful. Enclosed verandah with dog proof door is perfect for morning coffee. Bird life abundant, hosts very friendly, resident dog adorable. Good idea to get clear directions from Main Highway to Reidford from host as can be confusing. Lovely location and surrounds.
