About this listing
Orchard House is a beautifully renovated home with relaxing views over the gorge, an enviable edible garden and it is conveniently located amongst all that Beechworth has to offer.
The site was established in 1858 as the Oriental Hotel, Newtown. The hotel was a coach stop with cellars and stables located at the back. It remained a hotel until the1950s when it was converted into a residence.
In the last 5 years an edible garden has been lovingly planted at Orchard House. You can enjoy seasonal fruits plucked straight from the tree including plums, feijoas, guavas, pears, apples, nashis, apricots, peaches, nectarines, quinces, persimmons, and pomegranates. The garden also offers a range of fresh herbs, rhubarb, and strawberries. Coupled with what you can source from the garden, the fully equipped kitchen and butlers pantry are ideal to add a little extra to your vacation meals.
