This property is proudly managed by Holiday Rental Specialists - Highlands Holidays
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 ensuite. 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 tress and 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 is warm and comfortable in the winter months, and due to its elevation on the Gib stays cool in summer.

"We had four nights at Highcroft. The house was great, very comfortable and ideal for the four of us. We really enjoyed the grounds and the bush walk which is straight out the back fence. We would have no hesitation in recommending this house to other families. "
Rod, July 2014
"Property was lovely and obviously well maintained. A straight forward booking process complete within 24 hours. Home and gardens here at Highcroft are lovely, and a lovely peaceful retreat from Sydney. There wasn't a single thing I wanted for the house that wasn't already thoughtfully provided."
Rebecca, May 2014
"Highcroft is a lovely house with a lovely view! This house is clean and very welcoming. Thank you for letting us stay on such short notice. The rooms were lovely and the children loved the backyard and hammock. We enjoyed having breakfast at your outdoor tables and watching movies in your living room. Thank you again."
Simpson, January 2014
"We very much enjoyed our stay at Highcroft. Lovely and close to Bowral and Mittagong. House was well set out and appointed more like a home than a holiday let with books and DVDs provided. Lots of areas to sit and relax outside whether you wanted sun or shade. Especially appreciated that my well behaved dog was allowed to stay. The laundry access made it easy for wiping his feet before coming inside. Highlands Holidays were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely book with them again!"
Kate, December 2013
"Highcroft was very comfortable and well appointed. It was clean, comfortable and homely. Highlands holidays were very well organised."
