My family of 4 stayed in The Apple Tree Cottage for 4 nights and it was fantastic. The house had large, wonderfully furnished rooms and each day we had a baked treat delivered to our house. This cottage had everything we needed as well as extras such as washing machine, dryer, Wi-Fi, outdoor BBQ, etc. Our bath towels were replaced... More

We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed returning to the lovely cottage at the end of each days outing with the kids. Every time we returned there was either cookies or cupcakes and fresh towels. The owners are friendly and inviting while also ensuring that space is provided, it was lovely that they let our kids see your daughters bunny.... More

We stayed in the one bedroom Gingerbread Cottage and it was darling. If you want to take a step back in Tassie time, this is the way to do it - but with the modern conveniences of indoor plumbing, microwave and washer/dryer. Do ask Amanda to stock your breakfast - her homemade bread was a real treat....and the goodies that... More

Thanks so much for your kind review. Indeed, Westbury is a great place to use as your hub and visit so much in Northern Tasmania. We like to put a pin in the map at Westbury, and draw a 45min driving circle around us. The amount of things to see and do within this circle is AMAZING - from walks... More

Thank you so much for your kind comments. We love the peace and quiet of our little village - yet so central to many attractions, including the North-West coast. We've climbed the nut at Stanley, visited Table Cape (and van Diemen Quality Bulbs), Wynyard and Burnie - all as a day trip from the cottages. We do trust you enjoy... More

We stayed at Apple Tree Cottage which is absolutely delightful. Very comfortable and clean and the town itself is sweet and unspoilt. Every detail was perfectly seen too and the extra breakfast addon with bacon, eggs, fresh bread and homemade jam was wonderful. Special mention to a daily baked afternoon tea - gingerbread men were YUMMY!

Our recent stay in Westbury 8/5/13 was wonderful! the Old Bakehouse Cottage was delightful and historic but with modern touches. Plenty of room and very cosy and clean. I loved the old photos on the wall and wonder if they were previous owners? Our girls loved the upstairs attic area. The afternoon tea provided by Dan and Amanda was yummy!... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of The Servant's Quarters. This is a lovely cottage - just perfect for a couple - that was once the residence of the local baker and his family, dating from c.1860's. Since that time, many of the local facilities have increased, including the IGA, pizza shop and service station. These additional facilities,... More
