Woolmers estate dates back to 1824 and has a beautiful rose garden and heritage buildings. It's truly an experience to stay in those heritage cottages! There is so much history associated with them. Loved every bit of our stay! Especially the woodfire heaters!

A wonderful place to stay. Cottage was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, the fire was a welcome addition. House and gardens closed but we were happy to just wander about, will definitely be back when the roses are in bloom! Very quiet and peaceful place to stay, close to a lot of attractive areas like Evandale and Launceston.

With no tours of the house operating in August they still wanted to charge a silly price to walk around the outside. No way would we pay that.

Magnificent property a definite place to return to & visit when open. Disappointed it was closed. Grounds, historical farm buildings look very well restored & make my maintained. So frustrated we did get to see this property inside the main house. Accomodation cottages looked charming.

The guided tour through the house was excellent. Unfortunately upstairs rooms were closed for safety reasons. The garage with its 1920 vehicle and odds and sods was very interesting. The rose garden and Tattersalls garden are well maintained and very enticing. Lots of lovely items in the shop too.

We spent hours here. The house tour by a family member was informative and interesting. The many buildings on this estate were fascinating to walk through.

It is hard to imagine a place that captures the spirit of an era more, even in Tasmania where colonial history is often very much still available. The grounds, buildings and, especially, the furnishings and fittings of this remarkable homestead really do bring the Archer legacy to life in stunning fashion. There is no doubt that those with means certainly... More

We had actually driven past the road to this place because the signage on the highway was not particularly standoutish, so chucked a U turn & went back. & am very glad we did. The entry price was negligible & we self guided ourselves, this way you don't get to see the house interiors which I regretted not doing however... More

The house that the Archers lived in during the 1800's is amazing. The grounds were a little bit sad as the roses had lost most of their petals and more work needed doing within the gardens,... as in weeding and deadheading Etc.
