Tathra Cottage is a free standing mud brick cottage located high on its own hill with landscaped gardens and sweeping views across several Flowerdale valleys.

Tathra Farm Stays - Fruit trees, horses, alpacas, sheep and chickens happily coexist on our 30 acre family farm located at Flowerdale in regional Victoria, Australia. You are invited to enjoy a quiet and relaxing stay in the "Valley of a Thousand Hills".

Located about 100 metres east of the Tathra Homestead, "Tathra Cottage" is a cosy, mud-brick cottage with cathedral ceilings that offers a rustic farm stay experience reminiscent of a bygone era.

Please note Tathra Cottage is intended to be a getaway for adults and cannot accommodate children older than six months.

For those guests who love to travel with their dog, Tathra Cottage is also dog-friendly. There is also a secure area for your dog within the Cottage grounds and under the Cottage roofline to provide guests with somewhere secure to leave their dog when visiting attractions in the local area. Guests wishing to bring their dogs are also asked to have their dog under positive control at all times when wandering outside the Cottage grounds as our ducks, geese and chickens free-range their way around the property but not within the fenced area around the Cottage. Guests are also required to clean-up after their dogs as a condition of booking acceptance.
