We usually stay in big hotels when we travel. This time we decided to change the routine. I booked the farmstay online for 4 nights, being a bit nervous if this was the right thing to do.
Tara wrote us a fantastic email, telling us how excited she is to meet us and giving us all kinds of information about the area. Now we couldn't wait to explore Tasmania!
Her farm is easy to find (Garmin took us there) and very close to anything you would possibly need (even an ice cream store in Richmond). The guest suite is very spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable. It has a washing machine!
We loved the outdoor patio. Every evening we had dinner outside. Richmond has a small but well stocked grocer and the grapes for dessert were hanging all around the patio. In the morning, after her famous breakfast, we met Tara to feed the animals. Our five-year-old son loved it.
Tara also offers free, uncomplicated and well-working wifi. Since we never really leave our business behind when we go on vacation, this was great.
If we wouldn't have to fly 23 hours to get to you, Tara, we would be back in a blink of an eye!
