Set on over 4,500sqm, Highcroft is a charming property that backs onto the nature trails of Mount Gibraltar and offers a peaceful retreat with a sunny northern outlook. Highcroft has recently undergone a facelift. It now has a fresher, newer feel Highcroft Cottage has everything you are seeking for a short country getaway with friends, or a longer family Southern Highlands experience.

Close to the cafes, galleries and antiques stores, Highcroft is easy to find and conveniently located high off the road from Mittagong to Bowral with distant views of rolling hills and bushland. Local vineyards and function centres are very close by, with Corbett Gardens, the Bradman Oval and Museum, golf courses, Bong Bong Street shops and Sturt Gallery are short drives away. Highcroft sits 1.1km from Bowral town centre.

Inside, there are two living areas, three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and culinary kitchen and laundry / mud room. The formal sitting room has stained glass windows and looks north over the rose gardens and circular driveway. It adjoins the dining room and kitchen. The rumpus area is fitted with a large modular lounge suite with views across the courtyard and greater grounds. It adjoins the master bedroom. There is a large 58” flat screen smart TV and DVD player in the rumpus room with a second TV in the main bedroom.

Guests are invited to cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen or fire-up the gas BBQ in the courtyard using fruits, vegetables or herbs from the vast garden.

The green bedroom consists of a queen-sized four poster bed with an en suite. The elegant blue bedroom consists of a queen bed with built in wardrobes, dressing table and window seat. The French styled antique twin room can accommodate 2 singles or a third couple with the beds pushed together. There is a further sofa bed double in the sitting room.

The Highcroft gardens are vast, colourful and changing with the seasons. Blossoming plums line the driveway and flower in Spring along with iris, tulips, rhododendrons, camellias, wisteria and lilies, just to name few. Herbs include kaffir lime, parsley, thyme, lavender and Italian celery. Fruit tress include oranges, lemons, apples, pears and fig trees. Children can wander through the fairy garden at the rear of the property or play hide and seek for hours on end amongst the large trees including pines, gums and Japanese maples. There are three outdoor dining areas to choose from for alfresco eating or an afternoon aperitif

There’s a selection of DVDs, books, cards and board games if it’s a bit chilly outside or if it starts snowing. The house has central heating so it is warm and comfortable in the winter months, and due to its elevation on the Gib it stays cool in summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed We stayed at Highcroft in July 2014- and I am sorry to say we will not be back. We travel quite regularly and have never received such poor service. The bedroom my husband and I slept in was so mouldy and musty we couldn't breathe. The estate agent also asked us to take the bins in- up a VERY long and VERY steep driveway. To top it off we were ushered off by the cleaning lady who arrived a half hour before check out time was due.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely accommodation Highcroft has a welcoming appeal to it and our stay was very comfortable. Clean house, warm beds and fabulous roaming gardens, making for excellent adventures for our 3-6yr old contingent. The exhaustive list of fees for things (like if you leave something behind) was a bit against the 'community' feel of the place, and I have misplaced jacket but certainly not game to ask about it. But the key things were great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely property but needs work It's a lovely property but definitely can do with some improvement. Positives: - Very cute cottage with nice expansive grounds, - nice decorations, (although the main bathroom looks rather out of period) - The genuine period articles in the house was really interesting, - lovely and extensive crockery and kitchenware, - close enough to both Mittagong and Bowral by car, Negatives: - the "utilised" furniture need replacing, e.g. mattress too hard or too soft, pillows really near end of life, bed and bath linen really low quality or end of life (also insufficient quantity) , dining chairs was rather painful to sit for an extended period because they need replacement cushions, - Should really not have cream coloured carpet in the living room if it is going to be requested that we avoid walking on it when the most convenient egress and entry is through this room, - TV really need to be in the family room rather than the living room for above reason, - and generally the property need a little spruce up with a lot of things looking a little tired. - And there is really no vegetable garden to speak of as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Jane, for making our stay well organised and comfortable. The four of us stayed for 3 nights and ended up cooking our meals as the facilities and setting were superb. We were warm (even when it snowed!), comfortable and felt very pampered in this idyllic location.
