“Franklin”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

What a fabulous stop this was! One of the best restored houses we have seen across NSW, Vic and Tassie. Staff very helpful and informative. Must visit the church opposite too. Great to see history valued! Thankyou!

Reviewed August 17, 2012

One can only hope that properties such as this are kept in such pristine condition forever. One of the historic wonders of Tassie.

“Poor value”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Expensive entry with limited areas of the house accessible. Overall I did not think it was worth the entry fee. So would not recommend here. Suggest a visit to Clarendon House instead
