Gardener's Cottage is a charming gingerbread house in a picturesque Victorian Gothic style built to decorate the driveway to the house. It is some way from the other cottages on the site giving complete privacy. Careful restoration offers comfortable, characterful accommodation. Sadly the gardener had not been in evidence for a while so there were no flowers to enjoy. We... More

Very nearly didn't go to Woolmers Estate which is a World Heritage listed convict site, due to its website saying it was closed, which could have turned a few people away. However, we were driving past anyway so decided to drop in and found it open to our delight. An interesting tour was taken with the volunteer tour guide who... More

Woolmers is very isolated but initially we thought that could make for a good experience--instead it was only one disappointment after another. the staff were friendly when we first got there but the troubles started when we arrived at the cottage and had a 5 minute struggle to open the door! once inside we found the barren and dirty rooms...

We stayed the night in the Coach House, which is self contained/self catering. Very comfortable and spacious. The estate is great for country walks, particularly along the river. The house is full of interesting historical pieces and there is a nice little café there as well.

A very historical area to visit. We chose the Gardeners Cottage for a romantic mid-week getaway and we were very disappointed. Aware that mid winter is not ideal to view the beautiful gardens at this property we were looking more for the romance of the accommodation on offer. The cottage was very cold as the fire had not been lit,... More

Woolmers Estate is a World Heritage listed site, one of Tasmania's oldest farms, owned by one family for 6 generations. Touring the house and outbuildings is a fascinating experience - this is not an historic house furnished with antiques carefully selected by experts, but a family home which is full of things the family bought and used. Having visited last... More

I did not stay within the property but was keen to view the buildings and gardens within. I was surprised to learn of a Cafe within the old servant's quarters and the meals were reasonably priced, and I felt to complement this property it possibly needs more promotion. I joined a tour of the old house, and the Guide was... More

Where are the flowers?? Barron landscape! We came and were so disappointed in the sheer lack of anything in the rooms we left and had to book alternate accommodation. Sadly we had no breakfast provisions as mentioned while booking, not even extra pillows. It felt cramped and very isolated. Having back issues a good bed is important, the bed here... More

We stayed at Woolmers just for 1 night in January. Our last night in Tasmania and it left very warm feelings. We arrived to Woolmers late in the evening and the place seemed to be absolutely deserted as if the huge estate was just for us only. But the cottage was ready, breakfast basket prepared and even the fireplace filled... More
