My fantastic girlfriend took me away for a weekend in Tasmania and we stayed at Brockley Estate on our final evening. We arrived late afternoon and knew we were in for a great stay as we drove down the entry road to see baby lambs and new calves scamperring away from the fenceline. The homestead is a marvel to wander through and after a very warm welcome from Julian an Chaxi we headed down to the river and canoe to see if we could spy the resident platypus. Sadly we must have not been quiet enough! We had a brialliant evening and the food was simply brilliant! Julian and Chaxi were exemplary hosts, making everyone feel incredibly welcome and doing everything they could to ensure our stay was amazing and our next day activities had no unexpected surprises. I highly recommend recommend finding a way to work Brockley Estate into your trip.
- 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
