Overview

About the property

Rushton Cottage B&B - a private guest suite - is in a 1904 Edwardian cottage with a contemporary farm-house touch - high ceilings, polished floorboards, original doors and bullnose veranda. PETS are welcome by prior arrangement.

Rushton Cottage B&B is centrally located in a shady tree-lined street and within easy walking distance of most of Benalla’s cafes, restaurants and shops, sport and recreation centers, arts and cultural destinations.

Rushton Cottage B&B is suits COUPLES (king bed) OR 2 SINGLES (king beds twin-share). Children are welcome. The guest suite includes a stylish bedroom with ensuite (shower-over-bath) and walk-in wardrobe, your own sitting/dining room, guest only entrance, furnished north facing veranda, off-street parking and a fenced cottage garden.

When you arrive you get a tour of your suite, we set you up with “24/7 host support” ... and then leave you to enjoy a memorable and restful stay in Benalla. OR, you might prefer the independent option of a key-safe code … a stress-free choice when you’re not sure about your arrival time.

Guest rooms overlook the traditional cottage garden with a north-facing veranda which is THE best place to wine, dine, soak up the sun and ponder on those ‘wouldn’t it be lovely” plans.

Linen and towels are supplied, as are heaters, electric blankets, ceiling fans and air-conditioning. Your sitting/dining room includes a smart TV, DVD player, sound system, a “table for two” to enjoy the complimentary breakfast (in private and at a time to suit you), a side-board complete with crockery & cutlery, fridge with your breakfast supplies, and toaster, kettle and microwave.

PLEASE NOTE - 2-night minimum FRI/SAT bookings, Labor Day and Queens Birthday w/end, Easter and Christmas. Pets welcome by prior arrangement.

HOW TO GET HERE - Rushton Cottage is a 2-hour drive/train from Melbourne (Hume Highway/Southern Cross Station). Try a semi car-free experience – bring your car then explore Benalla on foot – great exercise and a closer look at the local history, sports and arts. Or travel by train, pack your bikes (google V-line for details) and sight see at a cracking pace .. maybe join the local lycra set ... great energy and lots to see.

NEARBY - 10 min to the Gliding Club of Victoria, 15 mins to Winton Motor Raceway, 20 min to Winton Wetlands, 30 mins to Wangaratta’s Jazz festival, 40 mins to Mansfield (doorstep to the snowfields), 50 mins to historic Beechworth, and in the middle of some of the best wine regions in Victoria.

THINGS TO DO … Contact the Benalla Visitor Information Centre or check visitbenalla - Benalla offers something for everyone including ..

HISTORY – heritage listed Benalla Migrant Camp, Ned Kelly museum and trails, Yorta Yorta and Taungurong tours and gardens, and guided tours around Benalla’s interest points – many dating back to the early 1800s.

AVIATION – see the Gliding Club of Victoria – host of the 2017 the World Gliding Championships – to book a glider flight and, for the game, include a “loop the loop”! Visit the Benalla aviation museum for a fascinating look at Australia’s military air training history and passenger flights.

ARTS & CULTURE – Visit the Gallery by the Lake, make music with thongs (and songs too) at the mural, buy locally made arts & crafts at North East Artisans, and include a Street Art walking tour for a taste of what Benalla offers.

SPORT – play a round or two of golf with kangaroos, try tennis by the lake, and relax with a sunset lake canoe. Walk the lake, around town or join the walking club or town tours for walks to suit all interests. Bike riders - from the lycra crew to family groups – enjoy the easy terrain of town and the well-known touring rides to the Tatong Tavern. The iconic Winton Motor Raceway is a must for motor enthusiasts, as is the Benalla Racecourse for equine fans.

FOOD WINE & CRAFT BEER – indulge in fresh regional produce expertly combined by local restaurateurs for a taste sensation to remember. Match with locally grown and produced wines and you’ll think it’s heaven! Begin in Benalla and work your way throughout the region .. so many choices, so little time!

Rushton Cottage offers guests the same homely atmosphere we’ve enjoyed on our travels.

A warm “Welcome” to you.

We were warmly welcomed by Jane to this delightful accomodation so centrally located.

It was so cozy and comfortable, best bed ever! Our dog Max was also welcomed. Lovely breakfast provisions and Jane was very helpful in providing advice about Benalla and its attractions. Loved the street art.

Hope to return, Thankyou Jane

Gorgeous Max and his "people" were a delight to host. Benalla & Rushton Cottage look forward to welcoming you all again ... and some more local adventures - gliding, Winton Wetlands, car/horse racing ... so many choices. Cheers Jane

Benalla Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and peaceful stay at Rushton Cottage. Jane was the perfect host; friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable! The Cottage was so beautifully toasty warm and the beds very comfy. It's great that my dogs were able to come with me and Jane didn't make me feel anxious that they might ruin anything, (of course, they wouldn't!) or produce a list of rules of animal do's and don'ts- this has happened before and ruined our stay. Benalla is a lovely town and you will make the most of it staying at Rushton Cottage.
