A fascinating place. A real treasure. I really loved wandering around the village. The gardens of the main house were beautiful. But the tree in the front garden was unbelievable. I've never seen anything like it. The girl who manned the desk was delightful and very knowledgable about the place and the family. I'd go again and again.

This is a good place to visit and to understand the history. First you will see a very interesting dvd about the story and history of this family. The place and buildings it selfs are ok. It is not a must see in my opinion. Why not a ticket combination for both sites? Free very good wifi

A world heritage convict site along with Woolmers, but this farm is in its original condition as it was the 1800s. You can get the feeling of what it might have been like to work here. The buildings have not been touched or modernised, and they are basically as they left it and moved on with farming around the site.... More

Unless you have "extra" time before departure from Launceston, give this place a missed. Chose to wait in the shaded fields and enjoy the company of the farm animals.

Loved the introductory video documenting the family from the founder to current residents. Seven generations of Archers have lived here. Enjoyed the convict info in the building on the sight of the old dairy and happily helped ourselves to the lovely yellow plums near the old slaughter house. Yum. Also enjoyed chatting to the small white pony and the friendly... More

Staying in Brickendon was a very special experience. It was like going back in time. We stayed in the Gardeners cottage, with all its old fashioned rustic charm. Firewood is provided so we got a roaring fire going, adding pine cones which are all around the place to be picked up. There is a wood fired BBQ. We got great... More

I've visited Brickendon a few times since I was a child and I love nothing more than a lazy sunday afternoon roaming the grounds and enjoying the scenery!

We drove through Longford by chance, and I spied the sign and asked to stop. I'm so glad we did! This place is like walking back into history. You will get such a good idea of how farming was done in the early 1800's, what the building methods were, and how the people lived. Back in this era, estates were... More

Brickendon is just down the road from Woolmers Estate and is part of the same family. Lots of original farm building including their own chapel. Very much worth a look whilst visiting the Longford area.

We had a great afternoon walking around the estate. It is very large and there are so many old buildings. This is very rustic and it adds to the charm. Helps to show how farming was such hard work in the past.
