You cannot stay closer to Richmond Bridge than this cottage. The views are wonderful and at night the bridge and church are lit up and make for great viewing. Perfect for 2 couples or a family. We lit the fire, enjoyed the comfy beds and spent hours enjoying the peaceful surroundings. There is direct access to the bridge and river walks. Kylie made us feel very welcome and even supplied us with her beautiful home made soaps. This is a great base for exploring Richmond, Coal Valley, Hobart and surrounds.
Bridge View Retreat is a beautiful historical cottage (est 1835) in the centre of Richmond and is the 1st cottage on the left as you cross over Richmond Bridge coming from Sorell and it has been beautifully restored and the internal furnishings are of the highest standard whilst still retaining the historical elements of the cottage!! The beds are very comfortable and the doonas are amazing!!! It was so very clean and had everything you wanted from home!!There is a fantastic kitchen which is situated at the back of the property with fantastic views of Richmond Bridge, along with a very good stove, microwave and fridge and the laundry is fully equipped with a great modern washing machine and the 'best dryer' I have ever seen!!! The skylights in the lounge room and kitchen give this historic cottage so much light and airy openness, it was an absolute joy to spend our time indoors with great light whilst being in an historical cottage!! The views from the kitchen across to Richmond Bridge and across the areas were magical!! The 2nd toilet located just outside the back of the cottage by the kitchen near the Lavender garden was an added bonus!!
We stayed in this beautiful cottage from 29th Dec 2016- 1st Jan 2017 with a grown family of 5 adults and it accommodated everyone so very well!!
The location itself is absolutely fantastic as it is located on the main street of Richmond and with great off street parking on the property just beside Coal River and the historic Richmond Bridge. It was the perfect finish to our Tasmanian trip!!
We all recommend this beautiful cottage as 'the most perfect stay' for anyone visiting Richmond. the Coal Valley, the surrounding areas, Hobart and beyond!!
KYLIE-the owner of the cottage also operates her own company- Soap and Bath products - which is called the 'Richmond Bridge Soap' and the products are truly amazing!!!! The variety of the soaps and their smell, texture and quality are wonderful!! Kylie's small shop is on the edge of the premise and it was a great delight for us to visit!
