100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Newry is an historic farming property situated on the edge of Longford in Northern Tasmania which provides magnificent views over the Longford district.
Many artists have been, and still are, attracted to this location because of its views and ever changing light and perspective.
Great accommodation for families or small groups (including small conferences) who wish to experience a taste of Tasmanian country life and history in a location which enables them to extensively tour Tasmania.

Longford, Tasmania, Australia

Newry is wonderfully located being less than 5 minutes’ drive from the nearby historic townships of Longford and Perth, between 10-15 minutes drive to Launceston Airport, 15-20 minutes drive to Launceston township and 2 minutes’ drive to a main road with direct, ready and central access to all parts of Tasmania.
Despite Newrys location close to local townships and Launceston, it is a beautiful, private country retreat. From the moment that one enters the driveway to the farm, one encounters the beautiful, private and serene world of a charming Tasmanian country property.
