Glencoe Cottage

Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Forest Hill, Lockyer Valley, Brisbane Region, Queensland
Glencoe Cottage is situated in a spectacular position in the midst of farmland in the picturesque Lockyer Valley. Centrally located 1 hour west of Brisbane and less than 1½ hours from the Gold Coast, Glencoe Cottage is also only 1 km south of the small village of Forest Hill and close to Laidley and Gatton townships. You can discover the delights of this rich agricultural area by taking a farm drive; visiting local markets or farm gate stalls to buy the freshest and best of Queensland produce. At the end of the day, sit in the shade on the deck of the Cottage and enjoy the afternoon in the cool.

There is much to do in this area and you may just want to stay for a week or more to explore this very historical area or base yourself here whilst exploring nearby parts of South East Queensland. If you enjoy birdwatching, bring your binocula...

Interaction with guests
Before your stay at Glencoe Cottage, I will be in contact with you to discuss arrangements for the key. I like to come and meet my guests however, this is not always possible therefore it is good to have a rough idea of the time you would most likely be arriving. I can then make arrangements for you to be able to access the property. Due to our accommodation being self contained, we do not live onsite however we are available as we live close by for anything that may be needed throughout your stay. We are able to answer any questions you may have as to what to do in our area during your stay as well as information being in the accommodation.

Glencoe Cottage is a great place to stay. It was immaculately clean and comfortable. The setting is picturesque - breakfast on the front deck overlooking fields was amazing. I wish we could have stayed longer than one night.More

About the neighborhood
The immediate area is known as Glen Cairn. This was part of the original Cob & Co route with Glen Cairn Road being renamed after it was known as Old Toowoomba Road. Take a drive or a walk around the area, or read the history - there is much early history still to be found; from the old bridge on Sandy Creek to the billabongs where the horses were watered after a day's travel.

The small nearby township of Forest Hill has some special eating places. There is no queuing at the Post Office where you can browse their beautiful gift selections or enjoy a meal here at Café 4342.

A short drive away is the town of Laidley with a Pioneer Village and lots of interesting buildings to admire in the main street. Enjoy a coffee at the local cafes in Laidley and go for a drive through the farmin...
Getting around
It is recommended that you have a car when visiting us. In the event though that you want to use public transport, there is a Translink bus that travels through Forest Hill that meets with the train at Rosewood. Visit the Translink website to check on timetables. This bus travels through the Lockyer Valley and can be used to travel to other centres.

How to get there
Directions From Brisbane or Toowoomba

Turn off the Warrego highway at Forest Hill/Fernvale intersection (Meaning To Stop Shop at Glenore Grove turn off). Drive towards Forest Hill. Go through Forest Hill then go straight ahead (Van de Weyer Road) instead of veering left to Laidley or right towards Blenheim. Glencoe Cottage is the second house on the right before the hill (about 2km from this intersection).
