Touring with 2 teenage Grandson's this was our overnight stay before seeing Port Arthur the next day, property is right on the water with jetty where you could fish. Lynton (host) gave us the tour of the property and explained the history and showed photos of a long ago era, very interesting.
We stayed in the Garden room with double bed and twin bunks, room led directly onto the garden, a sofa and comfy large chairs TV and ensusite tea and coffee making facilities , there was also a lounge you could use with complimentary glass of port, plenty of DVD's to choose from (no charge). Breakfast was yummy lovely fresh bread and preserves, also freshly laid eggs from the chooks out back.
