“Hidden gem”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

This accommodation is our most memorable from 3 visits to tassie.the property itself is quaint and charming and alone is worth the visit..we stayed in the best chamber room which was immaculate with opening to a verandah overlooking a beautiful farm briming with wildlife. The most impressive feature of the stay was the culinary one.Chaxi is a phenomenal chef and Julian's knowledge of wine and local procure was awesome compliment to the meal.there is lots to do in and around the farm -from canoeing up the placid river to horse riding the local terrain.to summarise in a word -flawless.

Having walked the Convict Road, we arrived at sunset to this amazingly restored historic homestead surrounded by a wide & beckoning verandah. Our hosts, Julian & Chaxi, were immediately welcoming & lovely. They showed us to our stunning rooms filled with antiques & all the little modern creature comforts.
After freshening up, we were treated to pre dinner nibbles & drinks from local producers in the Conservatory. In fact, Brockley prides itself on supporting local & Tasmanian producers! Chaxi then had us drooling over the first of many of her delicious meals that she loving cooks & presents with great flourish to her eager guests. We were very spoilt. There is a widely interesting collection of books & deep lounges to recline in after our meal in the formal lounge room before retiring to bed. The biggest & simplest treat for me was the 'tea tray' that sat waiting on the wide sills in our room. After a wonderfully deep sleep in luxuriously comfortable beds, we threw back the curtains, swung open the French windows to let the morning sunshine in & sipped on our selection of beverages from our beds or on the verandah. What a charming & genteel way to start a day...
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying with these delightful hosts in their beautiful home in this very pretty piece of the world.

So lovely. The home is a treasure trove of things very old alongside recent history. Plush and comfy and with the feeling of being at home. Find yourself immersed in excellent hospitality which includes wonderful hosts and super food. Yes, a delightful place to stay.

Peaceful country setting, warm friendly atmosphere, historically intriguing, excellent food & wine & great hosts in Julian & Chaxi. Our walking group chose this location for the superbly central position on the East Coast for easy access to walking on Maria Island, local walks on the coastline & of course the historic convict built coach road that follows the Prosser River from Orford direct to Brockley. How nice to be welcomed by Julian & Chaxi at the end of our walk as though we were old friends, with wine & cheese to relax & unwind in the sun room room followed by the most superb evening meal to follow. We will certainly be back.

The hosts are wonderful and make you feel comfortable , it's a unique experience and well worth a stay if you are in the south of Tassie . Chaxis is the Spanish wife of Julian the owners and hosts , she is delightful and her cooking is superb . Julian makes a perfect Host.We booked the whole house with a group if friends, so a thoroughly wonderful night had by all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Time spent at Brockley Estate is an experience entirely different from what you expect in conventional so-called ‘colonial’ accommodation.The 170-year-old sandstone and convict brick homestead blends seamlessly into its traditional Tasmanian landscape surroundings, with generous verandahs, ancient English trees and hawthorn hedges stretching down to the wide Prosser River.Inside, mellow antique furniture, textiles, pictures and ceramics exude an atmosphere of effortless elegance and good taste that would be almost impossible to replicate in a purely commercial context.With food and wine of a quality rarely encountered in a private house anywhere in Australia, this is genuine colonial country life as it really was and, one hopes, always will be if you know where to look.Now that you are indeed in the know, why not come and share it with us? ... more   less
