Perfect location for gravel riders
Great historic house with everything catered for. Ideal location.

5/5 Excellent

We hadn't been to Beechworth before so spent a lot of time trying finding the right accommodation and location for our family .The French Cottage was absolutely amazing and lived up to our expectations . We really loved the beautiful spaces at the French cottage. Gorgeous rooms , lovely garden, spacious open kitchen and dining area and a cosy lounge . The cottage is also very clean and in a great location near the lake and a easy 5 minute walk to town . We highly recommend The French Cottage for a romantic or family getaway. Well done French Cottage

3/5 Okay

Weekend away
The house was clean and neat. The house is not set up to lounge in or spend time in but more a come and go to sleep. This was okay for us as we were out and about all weekend. We travelled as 4 adults - the 2 males loved the rock hard beds and pillows but the 2 women struggled with them. Maybe bring your own soft pillow if you don't like a really hard one!

5/5 Excellent

Very happy with this stunning property. Especially liked the kitchen and eating area. All very comfortable. Could not fault the property or facilities. Check in easy and very happy. We will be returning. Vanessa

5/5 Excellent

So frenchy, so chic
Immaculate slice of country heaven. Perfect for us! Beautiful bathrooms, exceptionally well stocked kitchen, beds better than many hotels. Perfect distance for a walk to key attractions. Definitely would consider again if back for another stay is this lovely town. Very restful stay.
