Located just outside of Myrtleford, in the gourmet region of the high country, Cortes Cottage offers a tranquil country escape. Set in one of Australias oldest operating Walnut farms 'Valley Nut Groves' and with views of Mount Buffalo the cottage is an ideal place to relax and unwind. If relaxation is not a top priority, the Ski Fields of Mount Hotham and Falls Creek are only a one hour drive away, 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 15 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. It is the perfect setting to cook and dine together, either with friends or alone, while enjoying some of the regions wine. 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.

So why not come and enjoy this wonderful comfortable and quiet retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great getaway We had a wonderful stay at Cortes Cottage. Ronaldo was very helpful and friendly both before and during our stay. The cottage is gorgeous, lovely to sit in and enjoy the outdoor space and BBQ. Having access to the river where we swam and fished was brilliant - a real get away from city life. Thank you Ronaldo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secluded, all the mod cons. RECOMMENDED! Had a great 4 days at Cortes Cottage. Pretty much has everything you'd ever want, including NO INTERNET so the kids have no choice but to go native. Set and setting is fantastic, amongst the Walnut trees, very peaceful, great location allows easy access to the sights. Frequent visits by Zoe the neighborhood Labrador was an added bonus for the kids. Ronnie does everything to make sure you're informed and happy and he's just across the paddock if you have any issues. I actually messed up the booking dates and got the check-in/out days wrong, but he was unfazed and made the changes without any stress. We loved staying at Cortes Cottage and would without a doubt stay again next time we're holidaying in the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect property & location for our Winter Escape. After many hours searching for the perfect place to spend our getaway "Cortes Cottage" appeared and l knew instantly that l had found the perfect place. This cute little cottage ticked all of the boxes & definitely did not disappoint when we arrived. Cortes Cottage has been renovated & furnished to a very high standard. The fireplace was amazing & warmed the whole cottage. All the other little touches made it really feel like home. Loved the record player!!! Could not have asked for a better host than Ronaldo, who took time out from his Walnut sorting to show us the farm. Great to meet such a hard working & passionate family. Gapsted is the ideal location to base yourself in when wanting to explore the surrounding towns. Very close to lots of wineries, food delights & lots of beautiful scenery. I have recommended Cortes Cottage to loads of friends & we will definitely be returning guests.
