We stayed here with our race team in 'Sweetcorn Cottage" for three nights. Very helpful and freindly hosts. Our cottage was one of the larger on the estate with two bedrooms which can sleep 7 with another two if required on the sofa bed in the lounge. The lounge had a great open fire and the kitchen fully stocked with homemade jams and biscuits, fresh juice and bread with cereals for breakfast. They also supplied a barbeque which we used one night for dinner. Really rustic and beautiful with a verandah looking out over the fields. Wooden rustic walls with hessian wallpaper making you feel that you have stepped back in time. The remainder of the property with the old grainery and barn, chapel etc also charming. This estate would be great for holding a wedding, something that Brickendon holds quite often I hear. Many animals roaming the grounds, from Turkey's. chooks, donkeys and horses, sheep and a pig, not to mention the resident cat Moddy that took our cittage as home. Nothing quite so nice as to come home from a day car racing than to light the open fire, cook tea on the barbeque and stove and sit back on the verandah watching the beautiful sunset with a cold drink.

What a delight it was to stay at Brickendon! We stayed in the Gardener's Cottage, which is a charming one bedroom self contained cottage, furnished mostly with quaint antiques and original furniture belonging to the Archer family, who still live on the estate in the main house.

We loved the homemade cookies (they were very geneous with the quanity too ... but it could never be enough!). In fact, they were very generous with almost everything - from the port in the decanter to the breakfast provisions. There is a fireplace in the lounge room, full kitchen with crockery and cutlery and BBQ facilities. In fact, we really felt that we could move right in!

The estate has many farm animals (sheep, cows, pigs, ducks, turkey, chicken, horses), interesting historic farm houses and beautiful gardens. You can also go fishing at the river nearby.

The estate is also not too far from Launceston (about a 30 minute drive). If you're looking for a different experience to your standard hotel and B&B stays, this is definitely worth considering!

A delightful stay in the cosy 'Pumpkin Cottage' (1 of 3 cottages) across the road from the main house of Brickendon. A warm fire greets you as you enter the beautifully built replica farm cottage with views overlooking the extensive working farm. Extensive breakfast supplies included in these self-contained cottages which are well fitted out with olde (& modern) wares providing authenticity to the old world atmosphere. A stay here gives you free entry to the National Heritage Listed Brickendon farm village and the main Georgian homestead gardens - beautiful English gardens, even has it's own gothic chapel. A great base to discover the historic township of Longford with it's antique and gift stores as well as racing memorabiliia - location of original races of the Australia Grand Prix. Other nearby attractions include Woolmers Estate and the National Rose Garden.
