Highfield House is 40 mins to Hobart, the airport and 30 mins to MONA and Richmond Wineries.
The 180 year old listed home has undergone a tasteful renovation including a new guest bathroom. However, it remains packed with original features, boasting a formal garden where the owners grow their own produce and raise chickens. Once a shop, the house now offers bed & breakfast.
*If this listing is booked try our other room in Highfield House at https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/16490743


Highfield House was built in 1840 by a pardoned convict, Edward Goodwin as a shop/residence and has a special heritage listing because of it's uniqueness. The front part of the house (now the lounge and dining) operated as the shop and the original panelled timber ceiling and shop display window remain a feature in the dining room. Having recently renovated much of the house and garden, restoring it to former glory, we now offer three queen rooms, each with new beds and loads of country charm. Each room features different views of the town and surrounding countryside, a cosy arm chair and a place to hang your clothes. Guests are also able to access the house wifi free of charge.
The new guest bathroom has a massive walk in shower and quality fittings. However, as the house is almost two hundred years old and on a special heritage listing, we do not provide ensuite baths. This is part of the charm of our house. Should you be the only guests staying the guest bathroom will be your private bathroom. If other guests are in residence the bathroom is shared.
The dining room easily caters for up to eight and you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast chatting to others or your hosts. A daily cooked breakfast with produce from out garden is included in the price of your stay.


Guests have full access to the garden, dining and lounge rooms at any time. They are free to sit with us in our private family room off the kitchen if they want company.


We're available to give you advice on sightseeing or just for a chat if you wish. However, if you want to be alone we can be located in the back of the house and are always willing to assist.


* There is only one pub in Kempton which serves meals.
* A takeaway is located a minute or so up the road.

* A hot cooked breakfast with produce from our garden is INCLUDED as part of your stay. As Kempton has little choice for dining, we can also offer an evening meal for an extra charge of $20/25 per head.

Lindy and Gavin have lovingly restored their historic home and garden in the center of the rural town of Kempton. Our B & B experience exceeded all expectations, with lively conversation, sage advice, comfortable and elegant accommodations, and delicious breakfast and dinner. We recommend arranging to have dinner, as we did -- it was excellent, with fresh veggies from their garden.

We had a very comfortable stay at Lindy and Gavin's beautifully renovated home. We stayed in the downstairs bedroom which is ideal if you need to get up at night as the bathroom is located just across the hall. I'm not sure what the room was called. If the room that you are looking at is unavailable on all the dates you want, look a bit further as they have another Highfield House bedroom listed separately. I ended up paying the booking fee to Airbnb twice because I didn't know this! (In other words I booked one room for 2 nights and then found the other and booked that for 2 more, which was silly cos the 2nd room was actually available for the whole 4!) I think this is the way the listings work on the Airbnb site, so just be aware of that 2nd room. Lindy organised it so we didn't have to move rooms halfway, which was good. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was fantastic. Lindy kept the house very well heated for us so we were never cold. Lindy prepared us a hot breakfast of fresh eggs each morning (their own chooks) and we were welcome to use the kitchen for tea and coffee making at other times. The location was ideal for travellers wanting to explore the Tasmanian countryside and only about 40 minutes from Hobart.

A lovely, friendly couple with two very sweet small dogs and a beautiful house. The bed is comfy and the bathroom huge (with a powerful shower). The views from the kitchen are lovely and it's very quiet. A five minute walk from a pub selling good, cheap food (the warm chicken salad is great). We'd love to come back!

Lindy and Gavin are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and great company. The house is beautiful and has been lovingly decorated by Lindy and Gavin. I had a fantastic stay and can't recommend Highfield enough. If I return to the area I will definitely stay again!

Arrived and greeted by Gavin who made us feel very welcome. Room was just beautiful and the bed was excellent. Our stay was a quick overnighter but wished we had more time to stay at this very cosy old house. Thanks Gavin and Lindy for you wonderful hospitality

Gavin and I love meeting new people and sharing our knowledge of our beautiful home, Tasmania. We are avid rugby union enthusiasts and travel regularly to watch games. We also enjoy live music and good wine and food.
Having moved around a lot, we've settled back in Tasmania and are soaking up the country life. You might want to ask us about our plans for the house or about Lindy's alter ego as an award winning romantic comedy author.
We're looking forward to sharing our home, garden and home grown produce with you and will interact as much or as little as you wish. This may mean you want to eat meals with us in the kitchen/family room or spend the evening chatting over a glass or two. You may prefer to eat in the dining room and relax in the lounge alone. It's your stay and we aim to make it a pleasant one for you.
