Whilst the property's gardens are stunning, there's an added bonus to staying at Homewood Cottages. Through a side gate and right next door, guests will find the Davison Arboretum. This amazing green space was donated to the local council and they now maintain it for the use of the public. Exotic trees from around the world grow here, many of them "autumn trees". Flowing on from the formal garden, there are several twists and turns in the Arboretum, which reveal many "rooms" and a labyrinth maze where peace and calm can be discovered.

This tree garden includes a wedding arch and a covered rotunda - making it a popular venue for garden weddings and social celebrations. The cottages are well placed to accommodate garden weddings, bridal parties and wedding guests.

As a guest at Homewood Cottages, it's a real bonus to be able to take a drink and a picnic rug just next door, wander through the arboretum and choose a spot to just sit and "be". 

The Highfields area has much to offer locals and visitors alike. Amongst the top attractions in the area, John and Jan list these spots: country pubs (the Meringandan Pub and the Farmers Arms at Cabarlah), Cooby Dam, Peacehaven Botanic Gardens, the Village Green and Abbey Lane and Pioneer Park. A comprehensive list of local events and attractions can be found on the website.

In a nutshell - Whether Homewood Cottages are shrouded in mountain mist or drenched in sunshine, this is a beautiful destination to add to the must do list of weekend escapes.
