About the property

Rural self-contained accommodation

Your own private aspect at the rear of the cottage faces onto a setting of eucalyptus and bush land that spreads up the hillside behind. It will comfortably sleep 4 however additional beds can be made available if necessary. With fully self contained services, heating and cooling, we trust that you find all of the facilities suitable for an enjoyable stay.

A modern kitchen and bathroom with a separate shower and bath.

Large double sliding doors open up on to a sunny verandah with bush views. Here you will find a Weber BBQ. A second deck overlooks Mount Buffalo.

Laundry facilities can be made available on request.

Ask us about breakfast provisions to get you off to an easy start on your first morning.

Unfortunately we cannot take pets at this property.

Children under 12 months of age stay for free, but please include total numbers in your booking so we can plan accordingly.


Conveniently located on the Great Alpine Rd, 9km from Myrtleford and 22km from Bright. Historical Beechworth and the King Valley food & wine region are an easy day trip.

The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is accessible a few hundred metres away for a family friendly cycling experience.

For a fun winter day out the nearest snow field at Mt Buffalo is 45 minutes away.


The cottages are located on an old tobacco farm established in the 1920s. Historically it was built to house the workers & their families who lived on the farm, as was customary for the many Italian tobacco farmers at the time. The tobacco kilns remain at the front of the property as a reminder of an industry that is an integral part of the agricultural history of the region.

We have sheep and alpacas on the property which you are welcome to feed with prior arrangement. Our farmstay experience is non-hosted meaning we don't have a set routine each day. If you would like to have a more interactive experience we are happy to assist with some hand feeding and petting when possible.

There is also plenty of native wildlife too with birds, kangaroos wombats and sometimes even echidnas. They are naturally a lot more shy making it a much rarer experience. The private bush at the rear of the property has various walking tracks of a medium to hard level.

The Sharefarmers Cottage 1
average rating of 4.625 based on 8 reviews

Great location for exploring Bright, Myrtleford, Mount Buffalo and surrounds.

  • 4 of 5

Location of this property was great for us. 10 mins from Myrtleford, on the Rail Riding Track, not far to Bright and Mount Buffalo for great scenery, walks, food and wine.

Cottage 1 was very comfortable and clean. There was only two of us but there was room for another couple or two kids. A second family could rent the 2nd cottage for a great time.

The Autumn weather was perfect.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Sharefarmers Cottage 1. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable, modern and spacious. Staying on a farm with all of the old sheds, machinery and animals was an added bonus and the views towards the mountains were spectacular. The hosts were also incredibly kind and helpful. We can't recommend this place highly enough!

Return visit

  • 5 of 5

These cottages are ideal for our little cycling group of 8.

They are close to the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail and we can go in either direction on the Trail, or further afield in the car.

The cottages are clean, user friendly, plenty of equipment to be totally self contained.

Our hosts can never do enough to make us happy.

Excellent Farm Stay

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place to stay over the Easter break, and glad that we did. It is a beautiful place. The natural setting adds a very serene feel. The property is very modern and cosy inside. Everything is provided. We had no complaints and had an excellent stay. Wish we could stay for few more days. If yiu want to stay away from the hustle bustle of the urban life, then this place is the best. And surprisisngly cheap for such a quality accomodation. We will be definitely back there.

Our children enjoyed roaming around the property,talking to the chickens and swinging on the tyre swing. The cottage was comfortable and nicely done up inside.The managers were friendly and couldnt have been more helpful. We found this place to be a good base to access the rail trail.
