Host Review Score

The cottages are ideally situated and offer great ambiance for a romantic weekend or relaxing midweek break. Each cottage is tastefully themed (Australian/English). Free WiFi is available in both cottages.
Your host at Homewood Cottages are John and Jan Harland, who are long time residents of Highfields having moved into the area in 1993. Since moving to Highfields from Mapleton in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland they have seen a lot of similarity in both areas. The growth of Highfields and the establishing of a number of tourist based businesses were the catalyst for their plan to establish Homewood Cottages. Wanting to establish and provide something different in the accommodation sector was paramount in their plans which came to fruition when they purchased a holding which bordered Davison Arboretum. The Arboretum with its manicured gardens and exotic trees provide the perfect ambience for the cottages. John and Jan cordially welcome each and every client and wish them an enjoyable stay.
The Highfields District offers many local eateries, restaurants, old country pubs, arts and craft shops, art galleries, historical sites and museums, country markets, flower art, pottery, gifts, scrapbooking, quilting, homemade chocolates shops, parks and gardens, national parks and lakes. Many within walking distance.
