Very well set up, clean and spacious. A comfortable old world feel, even a garden to sit in. A short drive to the main shopping district.

A step back in time. Beautiful Home away from Home & Pet friendly.

  • 5 of 5

Jim & Bev, have created a beautiful Period Home experience. A step back in time with the seamless convenience of modern facilities. It was lovely to be welcomed at the door by Bev, who gave me a tour of the house and all it has to offer. Every little detail has been thought of I found everything I needed from a measuring cup to a desk full of pamphlets of things to do. (The only problem for those less able would be the shower over the spa bath, it would be hard to climb in & out). Harrowfield is set in a quite location, with everything of interest in Ballarat, just a short walk or drive away. Tara loved the backyard & being inside with me as she would be at home. We will return. Thank you for a lovely stay Lynn & Tara.

Fascinating and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

With our 'paw-person' Fearghus the Sheltie, my husband and I stayed at Harrowfield to check out our soon to be new home town. The house was very clean and had all the amenities but retains the gracious qualities of yesteryear. We were made very welcome by Jim and Bev our hosts on arrival. Fearghus enjoyed the backyard and the run of the house. He was a very happily tired, spoiled boy by the drive back. The location is very convenient to most practical and tourist related precincts, with good eating places a short walk away. We would thoroughly recommend Harrowfield for a tranquil respite in a very beautiful and interesting part of Victoria, especially with a furry friend. Sue and Malcolm
