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

What an amazing place! The Farm Cottage was beautiful to stay in the 4 nights I was there. It had recently been renovated and had a new bathroom and very nice kitchen. I would highly recommend to anyone staying near Launceston. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Tasmania.

I thoroughly recommend Brickenden, Woolmers and Longford in general to anyone who is looking to explore early Australian history. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend at Brickenden and Longford. We didn't stay in the accommodation but the farm and being able to feed the lambs and calf was definitely enjoyable. If you could have... More

From the moment of our arrival when we were greeted by the friendly owner Louise and her lovely little grey cat to when we left the following morning we thoroughly enjoyed the rustic charms of this delightful location. The Pea in the Pod cottage was warm and comfortable, the provisions for breakfast were great. The animal inhabitants were delightful including... More

Recently spent a night in the Pumpkin Cottage, one of three farm cottages on the Brickendon Estate. The cottage is meant to provide you with a rustic experience of a different age and it certainly does this. If you want 5 star luxury then this will not suit. The cottage is the first in a line of three with great... More

Thank you so much for your review. It is a valuable comment you made about DVD which provides a great insight into the hardships of the early Tasmanian settlers and convicts but also shows how challenging the family farming environment is today. More

We arrived at the Brickendon Estate after dark to find it was poorly signed and badly lit. Instructions on how to find the cottage were none. We found the cottage on our own, after intruding on some local residents. With in minutes we had need to call the after hours number, as our booking requests were undelivered. Several times the...

It was a pleasant experience. We stayed at the Coachman's Cottage and there were plenty of rooms for 5 of us. The price was reasonable for a large group of backpacking traveller who wanted some extra activities. There are fresh eggs and milk in the morning; while kitchen was equipped with cereals, jams, butter... That was convenient and nice to... More

Thank you for your review. We would like to help our overseas guests by suggesting that they arrive during daylight hours as mentioned on our website. When living on a farm, street lighting on the roads is not available, and GPS points are not always reliable. Look for signs directing you to Brickendon from the town of Longford and also... More

Lovely open fire and old world charm. We were stayed in July and although chilly outside, we slept warmly and the fire kept the lounge room cost. We had a beautiful sunset over Ben Lomond - spectacular! Very generous pantry supplies for breakfast.
