Wanting to enjoy our tour of Tassie till the last minute we booked Lady Esther's Cottage at the Richmond Barracks, partly due to it's location in the picturesque town of Richmond, but also because of its proximity to the airport (about a 20 minute drive). What a wonderful decision it turned out to be. The cottage was perfect, clean, comfy bed, with everything we needed, we were only sorry we weren't staying longer! Breakfast included was an added bonus & Liz was kind enough to deliver it to us the night before as we had a fairly early flight the next day. The gardens were immaculate with plenty of benches, as well as a table & benches outside the cottage. It was lovely & tranquil to sit outside despite being only a short stroll to the main street.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Richmond Barracks is centrally located in a quiet, peaceful pocket of the beautiful Georgian town of Richmond. An easy walk to the famous Richmond Bridge and Richmond's main street, filled with excellent dining options, antique stores and Tasmanian craft shops. Relax and enjoy the spacious sun filled gardens that surround the beautiful cottages on our property. The Colonial officers who originally lived at the Barracks certainly did not enjoy the superb comforts you'll find here today. Built in 1830, using local convict bricks, this charming National Trust Registered property is a restful haven for the discerning traveller. Choose between any of these three purpose built accommodations: Lady Esther Cottage: two storey, self contained family accommodation, sleeps four comfortably.
