Description

Be completely and utterly enchanted by this 130 year old heritage brick and sandstone home. Originally built in the 1880's as a working farmhouse, it retains the character and charm of yesteryear but offers all modern conveniences and comfort levels from a combustion wood fireplace to Brivis gas central heating and reverse cycle split aircon.

It is ideal for groups wanting to holiday or celebrate together in the Highlands, offering space and privacy for all. With numerous entertaining rooms, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms it can accommodate 15 guests in comfort. The home and garden are also an ideal location for a small wedding or event with all inclusive catering packages available.

There are two main living areas: an informal central family room with wood heater and the formal lounge/dining area with TV/DVD and access to both the covered bbq terrace and the sun drenched northern verandah via French doors. There are games, books, magazines and DVD's to keep everyone entertained.

The kitchen is a chef's delight, ideal for catering with double commercial St George oven including warmers and a servery through to the main dining room. It is fully equipped including a Nespresso coffee machine, mix master and ceramic cook top. There is also a walk-in-pantry and extra large fridge. An additional drinks fridge is located on the terrace verandah. Both the kitchen and the living/dining room lead out onto the covered terrace with tables for 8-10 and 6-8 and bbq, deck chairs, daybed and low-line sofa.

The garden is almost an acre and boasts seasonal nooks for all occasions, whether it be scones on the verandah, a romantic garden bench, a quiet spot to read or the fountain and rose garden ideal for a small wedding.

There is adequate space for a marquis and/or additional event seating and if you are dreaming of a rustic and romantic wedding under the oaks, The Highlands Country House is certainly worth considering as an affordable and exclusive venue for your private use.

Small country wedding venue.

The Highlands Country House boasts a beautiful and private location, well worth considering as a small and exclusive wedding venue. We can cater for small groups of up to 70 guests and our all inclusive packages are an attractive alternative to large, overpriced and impersonal venues with curfews and time constraints. At The Highlands Country House, the venue is all yours with no time limits.

Imagine white linen covered tables adorned with candelabra under 100 year old oaks, champagne and canapés in the garden with abundant, rustic buffets of hand prepared fare in your own private and exclusive setting.

We have lovely areas in the garden for a service, gorgeous backgrounds for photos, space for a marquis with the addition of accommodation for 15 guests and a free night's accommodation for the newlyweds as our gift.

We can provide access to wedding co-ordinators, photographers, florists, celebrants, stylists, transport, spas, beauty therapists, make-up artists and hairdressers-and they can all attend to you inhouse.

Have we overlooked something? Simply make an enquiry and we will be delighted to answer your questions and provide you with all the information you need to plan this most important event.

Highlands Country House is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Winter Escape for large group 12 of us, utilising the 6 bedrooms, had a fantastic, very comfortable, warm winter break for my significant birthday. Accommodation awesome in this large heritage house, especially the ensuites with their own sitting rooms, easily accommodating our party of 12 ! Well equipped with every sort of utensil, cutlery, low combustion wood fire, bedding, BBQ, etc, great garden, convenient location but quiet. The bike ride to the nearest wineries (11 km away) a must if weather good. Phil made a special effort to configure the bedrooms and beds for our party. No hesitation in recommending Highlands Country House.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect rustic venue We LOVED every aspect of holding our wedding at this property last weekend. Monique and Phil made a usually very stressful time so simple and easy. The venue is beautiful, relaxed and rustic. Exactly what we wanted for our small garden wedding. We had 70 guests and there was more than enough room for everyone. Thank you again to everyone involved in making our wedding day so perfect x

The owners are extremely pleasant and helpful. To top it off,the weather was perfect!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a winter escape to celebrate my wife's birthday. We invited another very close family. The place was fantastic, many living areas to spread the kids into. The gardens were nice but the weather prevented us using it fully. The fire place in the middle of the house was on and created a warm gathering place. The little towns in the area were full of craft shops so the bank account took a hit. I would gladly recommend and look at coming back. Many thanks for a lovely weekend. - Tony.
