Ambiente Cottage


Holiday Accommodation 



After deciding to settle in this beautiful town of Toowoomba we purchased this beautiful 1900's workers cottage in 2019. We absolutely adore this cottage and the original features it still offers to this day. We love nothing more than sharing our beautiful cottage with our guests. Our cottage is self-contained and we do our best to ensure that the cottage is well stocked with all the essentials to make a perfect homely stay! We are also locals and are more than happy to assist in anyway we can - please don't hesitate to ask.

What we love most about our property is that it is pet friendly. We have three beautiful Labradors, Charlie, Summer & Tucker. They are our fur 'children' and mean the world to us so we take them just about everywhere we can! They're also very involved with the cottage, and often come around to help with gardening and enjoy wandering the large yard.

As locals ourselves we love the close proximity to the CBD, including Grand Central Shopping Centre and the Empire Theatre. The Cottage is only a very short drive to the City Golf Club, Toowoomba Base Hospital, Queens Park, Gabbinbar Homestead making it a popular choice for many.

We're excited to share that we have just completed some renovations including the addition of a second bathroom and internal laundry. The cottage has also had a fresh coat of paint and the timber floors restored. Booking direct via the website or giving us a call is most affordable, saving booking fee's and commissions for everyone. If you can't find your requested dates or you have a special request, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll let you know what we have to offer. To avoid disappointment we do encourage you to book well in advance.

Ambiente cottage was such surprise for us, it is 3 buildings away from Ruthven street and yet it so quiet and peaceful. The beautiful cool breeze that flows in from front door during the day and night and the older furnishings with the new, capture the surrounding atmosphere of the cottage's past and present making for a most relaxing stay.
