About 20 years ago we had to cancel a booking here and promised ourselves that one day we would get there, we got there in Feb 2014 and enjoyed every moment. Lovely unit with floor to ceiling window through which we enjoyed a lovely view and the moonlight coming in at night. The 3 breakfasts Jenny cooked for us were... More

So pleased you made it here, Syd, after all that time. Your unit, Celery Top, had been out of action for a couple of months while the bathroom was being renovated and you were one of our first guests since its completion. You may be interested to know that Lilydale Larder is now offering Friday night dinners in front of... More

Fabulous views from a quaint wooden cottage! The breakfasts cooked by Jennie were spectacular. We were delighted by the hosts care and concern for me when I was 'under the weather' for a day! Diana enjoyed the peace and quiet after travelling around Australia for 3 months - BLISS!

I guess you and Diana are now back home in U.K., fully recharged after travelling around Australia for so long. It is indeed a big country but we hope you will always remember our little patch of Tasmania. More

Plovers Ridge Country Retreat was beautiful. It was very peaceful out of Launceston, and not too far to drive. We had booked the CeleryTop Studio but the room looked like pictures of the Myrtle Cottage. Either way it was a lovely room and had a lovely aspect over the countryside. We pre-arranged a dinner for the night we arrived (a... More

Yes Kirsty, it was necessary to switch your booking to Myrtle Cottage as completion of the bathroom renovations in Celery Top were delayed - apologies for not having mentioned that. I'm very pleased you were able to relax over dinner after such a long day. With such an extended twilight here in Tasmania you would have hopefully still been able... More

My sister and I stayed overnight on a business trip. It was magnificent. Quiet, peaceful with fantastic views and very homely. Lovely owners and very hospitable. I did not want to leave and will definitely be back.

Perched on a hillside surrounded by lovely sprawling gardens you will feel like you are the only people there. When, in fact, there are other guests on the property. The official website is full of photos featuring the beauty of the property, and we weren't disappointed. One day in December the fog didn't lift until 3pm. It was cold, misty... More

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... More

Had an excellent time here. Two boys had a great time with chilli, the deaf dog - used this as a base between Launceston and Bridport as Bridport was fully booked, but this turned out to be just as pleasant, with the beaches only a half an hour drive away. Acommodation was very homely - great stereo and kitchen facilities.... More

We stayed here on our first night in Tassie. Plovers Ridge is country style accommodation and surrounds. We stayed in the Myrtle cottage, with our (9yr old) daughter. The room consists of a queen bed and two fold down bunk beds. It was lovely and cosy. We had a small courtyard, where Chili the little dog comes and says hello... More

A truly memorable experience! This became our home away from home. A great base from which to venture out and see all the beauty of Tassie. Then come home to beautiful, peaceful mountain views, a georgeous cottage garden and wonderful, caring host and hostess. Will definitely be booking myself in again, next time I visit. Thanks for everything Jeni &... More

Peace and quiet, gaze out over the rolling hills, platapus in the dam and gourmet cooking served to your table. Located fifteen minutes drive from Launceston - see the Lillydale falls. This is my second stay at Plovers Ridge and i will be back. Brett O"Maley
