Escape the city to a peaceful quiet retreat



Gate to Lane

In a tranquil, tree lined country lane leading to the beautiful Ovens River, lies Tyntynder Garden Cottages.

 We have 2  fully self contained cottages (in a group of 4) set amongst an acre of magnificent private gardens.   Additionally, each cottage has its own fully fenced private garden for you to enjoy.  Tyntynder Garden Cottages are numbers 2 and 4.  

Each two bedroom cottage accommodates four people. We also welcome your four legged friends to enjoy your private fenced yard and a stroll down the lane to miles of river walks.  

For cycling enthusiast or just the casual weekend rider, we  have room for your bicycle and all your gear.


  The cottages are close enough to town that you can enjoy the wonderful delights of Bright (1 min drive or 20 minute walk along the river), but far enough away that you can enjoy the peace and serenity of a holiday getaway.

Tyntynder Garden Cottage 2 has just won the Five Paw Pet Friendly Accommodation 2018/19 for Victoria with Holidaying with Dogs.   Under prior ownership, Tyntynder Lodge won several awards with Trip Advisor, Stayz, the Age and Holidaying with Dogs.   With our recent refurbishment (Dec 2017), we're sure you will have a comfortable stay!



There are two cottages available.  Both have the same layout with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom with separate toilet, kitchen, living and dining room.    Both cottages have a king bed in the main bedroom and two king singles in the second bedroom.  Both feature crisp white sheets and  comfy beds with firm and soft pillows for your comfort.




Situated on a quiet lane, Tyntynder is within 100 metres from the Ovens river where you can enjoy several walks.  You are only a short walk to town (20 minute walk along the river) or one minute drive, so you can enjoy all that Bright has to offer.
