'The Scullery' (c.1828), 10 minutes drive from Launceston Airport, a convict-brick dwelling. Originally it was the farmhouse kitchen, it has been beautifully restored in 2017 for guest accommodation. Modern furniture, allowing its convict-era past to shine, charming and unique. Continental breakfast supplied. Kitchenette, wood heater, private luxurious bathroom with underfloor heating and highest quality fittings, designer furnishings and fenced gardens.

The space

Hearty continental breakfast provisions in your room include local milk, house-baked sourdough, orange or apple juice, homemade jams, local yoghurt, cereals, leaf tea and pod coffee machine or plunger. Complimentary port and supper plate to enjoy in the evening. The Scullery has unlimited wifi, and Smart TV with Netflix. The King Bed can be separated to make 2 long single beds for twin share, cot available upon request for one infant under two years of age. Surrounded by many acres of farmland, 'The Scullery' is adjacent, but not connected to, our family home. We are available if needed, but you have your own 'zone' with outdoor fenced gardens and seating areas to take in the sweeping views . You can walk along the river bank, through the fields and around our property. There are birds of prey, native flora and fauna and of course, lots of sheep! We have chooks, horses and friendly dogs.

Guest access

We have extensive gardens, shearing shed and farm buildings to explore. 'The Scullery' has a kitchenette with microwave and bar fridge stocked with continental breakfast provisions, including homemade sourdough, coffee pod machine and leaf tea. There is not a cook top or oven, we provide a Weber BabyQ BBQ for outdoor cooking. There are a number of places to eat locally including the Clarendon Arms, Ingleside Bakery and Prince of Wales Hotel in Evandale; The Queens Head, Utsi and Perth Pizzeria in Perth; The Happy Chef and Blenheim Inn in Longford; Woolmers Estate tea rooms near Longford.

Interaction with guests

We can give you advice on local attractions, tours and places to dine. More than happy to point out the farm walks and let you in on the history of our property and the local area.

Other things to note

Depending on the time of year and stock movements, you may be able to watch the shearers at shearing time or help out with watering trees on the riverbank as part of our revegetation project to reduce erosion and create a wildlife corridor. Make your mark and offset your carbon usage by planting a tree perhaps! Whatever the time of year, we are in a lovely part of the state, close to many attractions.

My partner and I had a delightful stay at the Scullery! What a perfect weekend escape in the countryside. Vanessa and Angus are such accommodating and generous hosts, and they have created such a beautiful and cosy space in the old Scullery cottage - a spectacular restoration / renewal! Little luxury touches like the robes, slippers and candles by the bath were a treat. Breakfast provisions were very generous, including home-baked sourdough bread. While staying at the Scullery, we took a day trip out to Cradle Mountain for some hiking - being former trail guides, our hosts were super knowledgeable and happy to share their tips! We look forward to visiting the Scullery again!

It was a pleasure to experience the atmosphere of the colonial Scullery with its cosy fireplace. The tasteful modern appointments complimented the heritage features of this historic building. The cottage garden, the views of South Esk River, the farm setting and the warm hospitality of Vanessa all added to the experience.

Vanessa and Angus are amazing hosts - they offered a warm greeting on arrival. The fire was already alight in the charming historic, cottage; it was warm, inviting and cosy with modern touches and great attention to detail. The breakfast provisions were generous and delicious. The outlook is lovely - overlooking a peaceful river with green river flats all the way to the backdrop of the Great Western Tiers, sunset in the garden with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot is a great way to finish the day. We'll definitely be back. Thanks Vanessa and Angus.

From the moment we arrived we knew this place was going to be something special, and it was. The Scullery was beautifully presented and had a wonderful ambiance. To top it off we went for a lovely walk the next morning to great the day with clear skies and vistas over the river. Thank you again Vanessa

The Scullery is ideally located for easy access to Launceston Airport and there could be no better place to stay for the first or the last nights in Tasmania. The old freestanding farm kitchen on the property has been beautifully conserved and upgraded by the owners to function as visitor accommodation. It is now a quirky cottage with modern comforts. This place is a genuine Tasmanian country experience set right in the heart of a working farmyard. I enjoyed the brightly coloured rooster strutting his stuff and the gentle bleat of new born lambs in the paddocks nearby. The owners are helpful and generous with the provisions, they made us feel very welcome and we appreciated the freedom to wander along the riverbank to enjoy the peace and quiet of this wonderful retreat.
