Please familiarise yourself with our Highfield Farm and Woodland’s Kestrel Nest EcoHut (hereby referred to as Kestrel Nest EcoHut) booking policy to ensure all our guests have a comfortable stay.

Check-In & Check-Out Times

Check-in after 2 pm. Check-out before 10 am.

Minimum Stay

The Kestrel Nest EcoHut is a two night minimum stay. If you wish to stay only one night, you will be charged the equivalent rate of a two-night stay. The inclusions remain the same.


The Kestrel Nest EcoHut can cater for four guests – two adults and two children. The overnight rate for the Kestrel Nest EcoHut is $375 per night for up to two guests and a $25 supplement for each additional guest.

Infants & Children

We welcome children of all ages. Please note that children occupying a bed count towards the total number of guests allowed to stay at the Kestrel Nest EcoHut. Infants are not included in the headcount. Please bring your own cot and highchair as these are not supplied.


Highfield Farm and Woodland is a smoke-free property.


While we love our furry friends, we do not allow pets.

We, of course, welcome those accompanied by assistance dogs. Please let us know if you will be bringing an assistance dog so we can hear from you about any special requirements you have.

Cancellations and Changes

Full refund for cancellations up to 30 days before check-in. If booked fewer than 30 days before check-in, a full refund for cancellations made within 48 hours of booking and at least 14 days before check-in. After that, a 50% refund up to seven days before check-in. Cancellation and/or amendments within seven days of arrival will forfeit all monies paid.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is strongly recommended for all bookings to protect against unforeseen circumstances and travel cancellations.
