Welcome to Winston Cottage Bed and Breakfast - Sunshine Coast Hinterland B&B accommodation

In the Palmwoods countryside, yet only minutes from all the major attractions

So near and yet so far.   Come visit our quality bed and breakfast.  Explore the hinterland villages, spend a day at the beach or shop till you drop in some amazing locations. Check out the burgeoning live music scene in nearby Nambour.  Whatever you look for in a vacation you will find it here.


We only have one suite, so you can relax knowing that with the exception of us and our pets, you have the place all to yourself.  


A mere five minutes off the Bruce Highway, we are only one hour from Brisbane, in the geographic heart of the Sunshine Coast.  We also make the perfect stopping off point for travellers heading north or south as one of the closest accommodation providers to the M1.

Stunning Breakfast Choices

As food lovers, we pride ourselves on the quality of the breakfasts we offer.  From home cured bacon along with fresh eggs from our chooks, to our own smoked salmon eggs benedict, home made yoghurt and artisan breads, we aim to please.  Vegetarian options are available as well.  If you have any other specific requests, just ask!  We are happy to serve breakfast anytime from 5.30am on for those guests travelling further afield, or with a big day planned enjoying the Sunshine Coast.

All The Mod Cons

We have strived to cover all the bases to make your stay enjoyable.  We know the things that are important to us when we travel and have included these in your suite.  Such things as a Sonos sound system, Sony smart tv (including Netflix) USB charge ports for your tablets and smart phones as well as free WiFi access.  

Local Knowledge

If you are unfamiliar with the area, we will be pleased to offer you advice on suggested itineraries or destinations on the Sunshine Coast to make your stay more enjoyable.  To help you plan, please check out the "Explore" tab with some ideas of things to do.

What makes us special

We look forward to meeting you and sharing experiences with our "new friends"

Winston Cottage is designed to be something special, a homestay that is something different from the run of the mill. As travellers ourselves, we have combined all the amenities we feel make for the ultimate home away from home. These include beautiful pieces we have collected around the world, such as oriental rugs from Turkey and Iran, authentic pieces from the Miiddle East and Europe and genuine antique furniture.

As well as that however, we know how important it is to embrace the convenience of today's technology. So we have included Smart TVs including access to Netflix, USB charging stations, free WiFi, a Sonos sound system (download the app from your app store) so you can enjoy your own music.

While we love the Queensland climate, we do recognise that the heat can get to people at times, so we have had air conditioning installed in both your sitting room and bedroom. And you don't need to worry about using it, as we have embraced the latest in energy saving technology by using IceSolair which is a world leading system for reducing electricity input costs for air conditioning.

We love our coffee and tea, just as much as you do I suspect - we even visited Sri Lanka to have a decent cuppa a few years ago. To this end, we have included china tea cups and a teapot for you to have the perfect brew. Add to this, your very own pod machine and milk frother and you can practice your barista skills in the comfort of your own sitting room.

Enjoy a "welcome to Winston Cottage" sherry on us, served in a beautiful Tiffany decanter out of Italian crystal sherry glasses. Keep your wine chilled in your in room refrigerator or let your favourite red "breathe" in the Italian crystal decanter. Sit and enjoy the view over the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland - enjoy the birds, our resident border collie, Spike, will probably want to come and say hello. Awaken to the sound of our hens showing off that they have laid the eggs for this morning's breakfast.

Plan your day over a scrumptious breakfast that features things like home cured bacon, our own eggs, smoked salmon prepared right here at Winston Cottage. Sour dough bread, yoghurt, muesli and jams all made on site - breakfasts so good, you will want to come back again and again.
