Cosy Walnut Cottage is an authentic early-settler farm cottage nestled among 500 organic avocado, fruit and nut trees in the lush foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges.
The delightful, secluded cottage is accessed by its own driveway and has a carport with direct undercover access. It features a full kitchen, pantry, laundry, wood fire with firewood, reverse-cycle air-conditioning and fly screens on all windows and doors. There is a gorgeous north-facing deck surrounded by a rose garden and arbour, with lovely views over the organic property. Guests are free to wander among the spring-fed dams and orchards, and sample produce in season.
The cottage has two bedrooms. There is a double bed in one room and a double bunk with single above in the other.
