What a wonderrful lesson in history. We stayed here for part of our honeymoon, though it would suit a family perfectly. Opposite the bridge and the park and less than a 5 minute walk from town, if you want a self-contained place to roam around, this is the place. Easy to use fireplace, a huge kitchen and garden area. We...

What a place to go back in time and just relax. We wasn't sure if it would suit us but once we arrived, unpacked and met Julie we couldn't believe how homely it felt we had two fantastic nights there. Julie is fabulous we didn't want for anything. We plan on coming back later this year thankyou so much Julie...

The wooden floorboards creaked. The doorways were low. The sandstone doorstep was worn. Where else in Australia could you have the privilege of spending the night in a warm, cosy historic cottage such as Laurel Cottage? If only those floorboards could talk. If you want to stay in this much sort after property I suggest you book as early as...

9 nights in Tasmania 3 different self contained properties and ONE truly shinning star. Geraldine cottage was streets ahead of the others and oddly enough the cheapest by far, we wish we had stayed the whole 9 nights. The attention to detail the inclusions the level of comfort was faultless we cannot recommend this property highly enough.

This was a charming and thoroughly enjoyable place to stay in very historic Richmond. Not even the noisy school playing field next door distracted from the wonderful atmosphere of cosiness and history that this place generated. Julie, the owner, was a lovely host greeting us when we arrived and making sure we had everything we needed. There are plenty of...

Immaculately presented, fully restored, convict-built cottage. My wife and I stayed in this wonderful cottage and we were blown away by the warmth and memories it was able to generate. Lovingly restored, memories of our grandparents homes came flooding back. Loved the old pictures on the wall and the warmth of the fire. Surrounding garden was one to die for!...

If you are after the quintessential 'convict built' authentic accommodation in the heart of the south east of tassie, then this place if ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! The township/village of Richmond is lovely, quiet, within easy drive to Hobart & Port Arthur & Sorell & New Norfolk .... but still an easy going day trip to the Huon Valley and the centre...

We only stayed one night here but I wish we had stayed longer. This is an old style cottage with a few modern touches. If your after sleek modern wankiness this is not for you, but if you like authentic old with still being comfortable this is the place for you. Julie made us seem very welcome, and provided us...
