A unique 1840s converted stable located in the grounds of Twamley Farm homestead. The Stable is a beautifully renovated two storey sandstone building overlooking the hills of Twamley Farm and nestled under English oaks. The Stable features your own private outdoor cedar hot tub. The traditional wood fired hot tub offers blissful, therapeutic soaking in the beautiful surrounds of Twamley Farm.
“The stable is a such a magical place to stay in. The photos are stunning but it is even better in person! Elizabeth greeted us and was accommodating of our early arrival. We request a picnic hamper to take with us on a walk about the farm and it was so plentiful, we could've had half for dinner! There is a lot to explore on the farm and a map is provided; highly recommend taking the binoculars with you (we sadly did not) as birds could be seen wheeling and diving in the breeze from Charlie's Hill. We also got a chance to try the wood fire hot tub (though this is not run if there is a total fire ban) which is filled with river water but very clean and an indulgent steamy experience. It is surrounded by trees and bushes so whilst outside there is a lot of privacy”
The Storekeeper's Boutique Accommodation is a beautifully appointed 1840s sandstone cottage with a contemporary edge. Located next to the original General Store in the village of Buckland, the cottage was the shopkeeper's residence. The Storekeeper's is operated by Twamley Farm. The farm is just a short drive from The Storekeeper's, where as a guest you have full access to wander amongst the historic buildings, walk, mountain bike or get involved in the farm activities.
“The cottage was so much more beautiful than we expected. Very comfortable and cosy for our stay. Angela was very generous with providing a beautiful selection of local produce/ products for breakfast and there were meal options in the freezer just in case you got in late and all the places to eat around the area were closed. There were also a lot of thoughtful additions including toiletries available for use and fresh bread delivered each day. There was also interesting information about the house and the area and it’s history for you to read and some wonderful books on Tasmanian tourism. All round, it was a wonderful experience.”
St Michael and All Angels Church has been given a new lease of life as The Church at Orford boutique accommodation. Lovingly converted, this beautiful building retains unique architectural features whilst including quality furnishing and modern amenities. Ideal for a romantic weekend getaway, a summer holiday or to use as a gateway to the beautiful East Coast or to visit Maria Island National Park.
“We had a lovely stay at ‘The Church’ the building restoration is really impressive. Beds were very comfortable and the place was very clean. Good reliable wifi. The area is a lovely relaxing spot with good flat walks and beautiful fauna and flora around. Had a lovely lunch at the Eastcoaster and also a nice dinner at the Orford pub. Thank you for having us.”
