As a family with two boys aged 10 and 11 we stayed at Plovers Ridge 3 nights and it was definitively the best stay during our trip trough Tasmania. We should have stayed longer, but we didn’t know that this is a hidden gem in Tasmania. We stayed at the Leatherwood cottage which is a fully furnished accommodation with 2 bedrooms, laundry, big kitchen and last but not least a wonderful terrace with spectacular views. We were amazed by the peace and quietness: this is the most perfect getaway and B&B that we had during our 7 week trip trough Australia. And here you feel the Tassie spirit at its best! It is the perfect place to relax. The views are just gorgeous, the grounds and laws are lovely and the breakfast is excellent. Trough the whole propriety you feel the love for the little details and the devotion of the owners Jeni and Pete. The breakfast is excellent with fresh fruits and eggs that change every day. Jeni and Pete are lovely hosts and they made us feel at home very far away from our home in Switzerland and this means a lot to us. Plovers Ridge is just 20 minutes from Launceston and if you need some beach, Bridport is 1 hour drive. Lilydale is a charming little town. They have a nice pool for families (a bigger one is in Scottsdale). We visited the Bridestowe lavender farm and the Hollybank Treetops Adventure which is a lot of fun for the kids. The Cataract Gorge & First Basin in Launceston is worth a trip with the kids. In Scottsdale we can recommend the Cottage bakery and in Launceston Levee food for dinner waterside. When you are in Tasmania, don’t miss the excellent hospitality of Jeni and Pete at Plovers Ridge!
