Old Farm Cottage is a modernised cottage with upmarket towels but only instant coffee - at this price! There were well preserved outbuildings with farm animals to feed in the morning and helpful staff. Seeing the grounds after hours was enjoyable, especially the walk through the fields to the river.

This review is from the perspective of a mother of a 1 and 5 year old. We stayed in the Pumpkin Cottage for one night in January 2016. The cottage was quaint and the fridge had been thoughtfully stocked with milk, orange juice, and baby food. But the magic was in the evening when I spotted a duck in the... More

We have stayed at Brickendon a couple of times before - in the Gardners Cottage. This time we had an overseas friend with us so chose one of the farm cottages with 2 bedrooms (sweetcorn). We absolutely loved it. The cottages are built so perfectly sympathetically to feel like they'd been there for 100 years. The beds were comfortable, the... More

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in a different cottage. Yes the cottages do all offer different experiences which hopefully encourages return visits! Moddy the cat has been a favourite for many visitors to the Farm Cottages and offers a good "substitute" for pets left at home. We look forward to seeing you again.!! More

Stayed one night in Old Farm cottage with overseas friends. Beautifully renovated cottage, comfy warm and had everything we needed. Rooster crowed at 4am - but that is part of farm life. Lots to see and do and very friendly helpful staff.

The Cottage was a great experience. A modern cottage built in traditional methods, such a wood slab and hessian walls, but with microwave, hot shower, and slow combustion fire (in addition to the electric heating) Set in peaceful farmland on the Brickendon Estate just out side Longford. It is a short drive to town for dinner, or make your own... More

My family and I spent a few days last week at Brickendon Estate staying on site in 2 of the cabins. Brickendon is situated on the edge of Longford which is in a beautfiul part of Tasmania with lush green farming land and the Macquarie river running through it. Brickendon is a working farm so the kids are able to... More

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay with us. The Farm cottages certainly offer a lovely opportunity for an extended family to stay but still have some privacy. The Convict Walk between Brickendon and Woolmers is certainly becoming very popular especially during the Spring time when the Hawthorn hedgerows are coming into bloom and the farm is... More

We love this place. Visited it about 8 years ago and again in Sept 2015. It's a sixth generation working farm. Once a convict village farm it now has chickens, ducks, geese turkeys etc which the kids can feed. Wood fires in the cottages, really pleasant staff, interesting old convict buildings to see. All in the midst of the luscious... More

No doubt much has been spent on renovating the Farmers Cottage but I don't believe we got value for money. Many may like the old world charm but the 'old world' smell that permeates throughout the Cottage is off putting. The facilities are ok with a washing machine and drier. The bathroom was well renovated. Kitchen facilities are good with... More

Thank you for your comments about the restoration of Old Farm Cottage, it was a very big job but very rewarding to see yet another convict built cottage brought back to life. Unfortunately we were not aware of the smell that you mentioned, which no doubt could have been dealt with quite quickly. The large white house that is referred... More

The Gardener's Cottage tucked away down the end of a lane beyond the main house is a delight. Completely private - I wandered onto the verandah in the nude to enjoy the morning sun! Restored with great care (the cottage, not me) it was a great pleasure to an Englishman who despairs of Australian domestic architecture. And it's furnished with... More
