Delightful historic building and setting. The hosts were warm and welcoming, and as a B & B we felt comfortable despite being unused to this type of accommodation. The fresh home made breakfast in the morning was simply terrific, fresh-baked bread, fresh eggs, home-made preserves, yoghurt, fruit, good coffee and tea,a bit like being in provincial Europe but it's Tasmania doing itself proud. The setting on the bay is gorgeous. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time there. We intend to return.
