We stayed in the Retreat Cottage and it was great. Clean, comfy bed, good bathroom, and surprisingly well equipped kitchen. You could cook a proper meal as its got 2 hotplates and a small oven. Location is really convenient and it's very quiet, and the buildings are beautiful.

Thank you Sophie for your excellent review. Always good to hear that people have enjoyed their stay with us. Richmond is close to many major tourist attractions so it is a great place to base oneself. Hope to see you down this way again. All the best Liz. More

Just right for a little family. We had a lovely stay in the 3 person "Retreat" cottage. Our friendly hosts provided a yummy breakfast each day, the beds were so comfortable, and the lounge warm, cosy and cute. Richmond was great fun.

My wife and I stayed overnight in the Lady Esther Cottage. The accommodation is first class. Liz and Martin are great hosts. If you are looking for accommodation for two to four people then you would be hard pressed to find better than Richmond Barracks. I will be recommending Richmond Barracks to friends and family. Value for money as well.... More

My adult son and I only stayed at Richmond Barracks for one night, but earmarked it as a really good place to use for a base for a longer stay in future, close to Hobart and the east coast, due to the great value for money and atmosphere. We stayed in the three room Retreat, on a cold rainy night... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this excellent review, I am so glad that you found the accommodation warm and comfortable. Richmond is a lovely little Georgian Village, good to explore and to use it as a base for extended stays when touring surrounding areas, as you suggested. Will look forward to seeing you next time...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Richmond Barracks. Liz and Martin were wonderful hosts and we felt most welcome. The room was spacious, warm and comfortable. The bed was so comfortable I wish I could have taken the mattress home with me!. Breakfast was lovely and we had many food items to choose from. I cannot recommend Richmond Barracks more... More
