Booked the Jennifer Cottage over the phone with friendly Craig a couple of months before our trip. No hassle, reservation was smooth and quick. That left a good impression. Was fascinated by the beauty of the guest house when we arrived. Although I had surveyed it through Google Earth, the real deal beats the view on the computer screen. We... More

As the saying goes "happy wife, happy life". My husband out did himself with our booking at Ashton Gate in August. This place is amazing. Our room was huge with a lovely en suite.

My criteria for a perfect B&B include wonderful hosts, excellent breakfast, ample parking, all ensuite, and well priced. This place has it all, plus a wood burning stove in the guest's living room in the evening, along with free port and cookies. Everything was very clean. Suggestion: you may get a better price by contacting the owners directly.

Our first stop on a trip through Tasmania. We stayed in the William room which was beautiful and spotlessly clean. A great spot to rest after walking through the gorge and cradle mountain.
