Only 30 km from Toowoomba, our little retreat is hidden among the gum trees near Hampton. Our spacious setting has a very relaxed and homely feel. The double room with its own bathroom and spa, overlooks the delightful rural setting with an adjoining room having a single bed available. A continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi are included in the nightly rate. Dietary requirements can be met with prior notice, so too an evening meal, the latter at an extra cost though.

The space

If you are looking for peace and quiet and all the privacy you need, then here it is.
It is a delightful drive along the New England highway between Toowoomba and our retreat. We have a beautiful 20 acre property which is our rural getaway from the rat race. We have lots of gum trees and wildlife. Our home is spacious, with polished timber floors and large windows and verandahs to bring the outdoors up close and personal. Why not enjoy a lovely walk through our own newly planted rainforest? Or sit on the back verandah relaxing? No city noise, no traffic, just sounds of the bush and the bright stars at night make this a perfect hideaway from busy life. Our homely environment is very inviting. We invite you to share it with us.
Because we are off the beaten track, if you arrive after sundown please be aware there are no street lights :)

Guest access

Guests are welcome to share our kitchen, lounge room and laundry facilities with us. Full use of the barbecue and Wi-Fi is available free of charge. Guests are most welcome to explore our property, including our garden, although it is suffering of late due to the dry weather and lack of time!!
We are happy to put a mattress on the floor for a child if needed.
An evening meal, mains and dessert can be provided if requested for a $20 charge, although we would like 24 hours notice please.
You are welcome to use our stove, fridge, microwave etc and of course watch our TV if desired.

Interaction with guests

We will meet you and make you feel most welcome. Privacy will be guaranteed however we will be available to interact with our guests as much or as little as requested.

Other things to note

We have chooks to add to our family!
Children are most welcome, if you are happy for a mattress to be placed on the floor:)

We visited Hampton for one night to attend a wedding in the area. We wish we could have stayed longer as the house and location were beautiful. Lester made us feel very welcome and the home was very cosy and had everything you would need for a homely stay.

We arrived a little later than planned but Lyn and Lester gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. We were grateful for the hospitality they showed us on arrival. They left us to settle in for an early night and we both woke the next day having enjoyed the best nights sleep we'd had since arriving in Australia 2 weeks earlier. We then enjoyed the variety of choices provided for our lovely continental breakfast. The property and location are great. Really tranquil and peaceful with a real sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of town life. Lyn and Lester are really friendly hosts without being intrusive and we thank them for hosting us.

Response from Lester:
Thankyou Trevor and Margaret. So pleased you had a relaxed time here with a good night's sleep. It was an absolute pleasure to have met you both and hope one day to meet with you again. We loved your easy going natures. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to others and wish you a continued safe and happy time over here in Australia. Best wishes, Lyn and Lester

Lyn and Lester are a lovely couple who were very accommodating of us and our 9-month old daughter. Everything from the room, bathroom, wifi, breakfast and the location was perfect - i couldn't fault it. Definitely recommended if you're visiting Toowoomba or surrounds.

Lynn and Lester's little slice of heaven is an excellent place to stay and unwind. They went the extra mile to make my 2 night stay very comfortable, I was able to use their kitchen to make my meals and they even provided me with some of their produce from the garden. A lovely country outlook with heaps to see on the property. I will stay again if I'm in their area.

Staying with Lyn and Lester encompassed all we love about staying at Airbnb homes . Lyn and Lester communicated with us in the days prior to us arriving giving us instructions on how to get to their place. We were travelling on a motor bike and found their place easy to find and Lyn and Lester offered us a space to park the bike undercover which we greatly appreciated! Our room was beautifully appointed and the bathroom was magnificent.... (on our next stay we must take advantage of the spa bath!!). After unpacking we walked out to find Lyn lighting the fire - it was a cool night so the warmth from the fire was appreciated. Lyn and Lester are wonderful hosts and it was great to talk with Lyn over a glass of wine that evening. We had a amazing nights sleep ... in fact the bed was so comfy, we didn't want to get up! Lyn provides a continental breakfast each morning - which was a great way to start our day of riding and touring. After a walk through the vegetable garden with Lyn , we reluctantly had to continue our journey. I can thoroughly reccomend Lyn & Lesters beautiful home to you. They are wonderful hosts and provide a beautiful relaxed stay! This is true country hospitality. We will definitely stay again . Kim

Lester and Lyn live on 20 acres in a peaceful and idyllic setting. Lyn works as a Director of a community based child care centre in Toowoomba, whilst Lester is retired and enjoys the quiet life on the property. We both love gardening and pottering around with our sheep, chooks and dog. We have had fun adding new elements to our property such as establishing the rainforest and building a tree house for the grandkids when they visit. In our spare time, Lyn loves to draw whilst Lester loves his woodwork. We are both looking forward to meeting guests from all walks life and sharing our little piece of paradise with you.
We love hearing about others' travels and their interests. We have recently travelled to Europe so enjoy hearing whether other guests have been, particularly in Australia. We love the Australian outback and finding about places to explore.
