Windermere cottage description

Olive's has an airy, welcoming feel amidst all the mod cons, like fast WiFi, for the discerning traveller and food and wine lover. On the eastern side of the Tamar River, an easy 15 minutes drive north of Launceston, it is an ideal peaceful, rural base to explore the wine route and northern region of Tasmania.

The cottage has a combined lounge, kitchen and dining room, leading to extensive decking. There are two bedrooms and a main bathroom. The roomy main bedroom has its own ensuite and a quiet sitting area, both with an idyllic outlook over the lawns and river. The fully landscaped gardens include sweeping lawns leading to mesmerising views over the Tamar and to the vineyards beyond. As sole occupants of the property, you can relax and unwind unencumbered by others.

Windermere is on a beautiful section of the Tamar and in easy access of Launceston, historic towns, mountains, beaches, berry farms and orchards.

The rate includes next-day breakfast provisions, including ground coffee, tea and milk. Local wines are available for purchase at the cottage.

Olive's Cottage is rated 4.5 stars by Star Ratings Australia and it is an accredited ATAP business by Tasmanian and Australian Tourism authorities.

Two bedrooms. Ensuite in main bedroom.

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About: Olive's Cottage is a former family property. We wanted to keep the property in the family, as it is in such a wonderful spot, with so many fond memories. We use it for family get togethers. Sharing it with others via a cottage/B&B seemed a logical step.

              Why Windermere:
              Olive's Cottage is a truly boutique property. Guests have sole occupancy of the one acre property. The managers live nearby and keep the cottage and the gardens in meticulous condition.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Guests have provided wonderful feedback about their stays at Olive's, including statements such as 'the views are some of the best in the world'. And they comment on the mesmerising views, the peace and quiet, the ambience inside the cottage and the professional attention of the managers.
