We arrived to a very warm welcome from our host, Margaret. Abbotsford is a gorgeous old house with all the creature comforts. Even though the house has three bedrooms, only one reservation is taken per night so you have your own private house. The gardens are lovely and you feel right at home as soon as you get there. Homemade shortbread, chocolates and port are complimentary and there are also many books, games and movies for you to use. Margaret is full of information about Swansea and can recommend places for you to go and places to eat.
The beautiful beach is not far away and we were lucky enough to have an amazing sunrise in the morning. I highly recommend having Margaret make you breakfast in the morning. Scrambled eggs (eggs laid by her "girls") with smoked salmon or bacon, freshly baked bread, homemade preserves, cereal and coffee. Margaret leaves nothing out even serving your bread wrapped in a linen napkin with a flower on the top!
If you can, stay at this beautiful place, it is a great place to stop on your way to Hobart from Launceston - we will definitely be going back! Thank you so much Margaret, we have organised the name plate for our house on your suggestion!More
