Enjoy the Victorian Pyrenees Mountain views and Australian farm life while staying at the Mt Mitchell Cottage. This beautifully restored blue stone cottage provides exceptional accommodation in the district.
The Cottage is ideally positioned between the historical city of Ballarat (30 minutes) and the magical Pyrenees wine district. Located only 90 minutes from Melbourne, suggests a perfect weekend country retreat.

Collect your own eggs, catch a yabby, harvest some fresh vegetables from the impressive kitchen garden and pick fruit off the trees in the orchard.
Base yourself at Mt Mitchell while touring the regional sites. Fabulous tourism opportunities in Ballarat (Sovereign Hill, MADE, Ballarat Art Gallery), the popular Talbot Farmers Market and award winning Pyrenees wineries (Dalwhinnie, Taltarni, Blue Pyrenees, Mt Avoca) are all highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful cottage on an amazing estate
My family and I had a wonderful stay. The cottage was clean, comfortable and cosy. The kids enjoyed playing board games in front of the fireplace and the estate had stunning grounds which we were encouraged to explore. A lovely way to spend a long weekend!

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous Farmstay
Fantastic weekend away. Lovely country setting, and a very warm welcome from Kate. We loved the historic tour and our dogs were kept entertained by Kate’s border collies. Highly recommended!

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful place to stay and a beautiful area
The cottage we stayed in was very well kept and clean. A very comfortable bed and couch to laze about on after a busy day of driving and site seeing with a fireplace to use, supplied with wood, to help keep you warm on a Winter's night. Go visit the Avoca pub for a nice meal and a drink with a friendly atmosphere. The host, Kate, was very nice and great to have a chat with.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely place beyond expectations
Kate & Simon have the amazing Mt Mitchell property & the cottage guest house is snug & like something out of a 19th century novel (with plumbing & heating!). Beautiful part of the world to explore for a few days.

5/5 Excellent

A lovely little getaway
We had a wonderful little getaway in this cottage in the Pyrenees, and we’re pleasantly surprised by the quality of dining & experiences at nearby Ballarat! Our 2 dogs had a ball also, with the highlight being our wander around the amazing historic grounds of the property including through the fruit orchard & kitchen garden. Kate was friendly & helpful but also let us enjoy our privacy!
