Property description

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

Summary: Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms, including ensuite in main bedroom. One king size bed. One queen size bed. All linen provided and many other essentials. Maximum occupancy is four persons.

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 ground coffee and coffee pods, tea and milk and other next-day breakfast starter provisions, and a complimentary bottle of Tamar Valley wine.

Olive's Cottage has a rating of 4 stars out of 5 by Star Ratings Australia. It is an accredited tourist business under the Tasmanian and Tourism Australia ATAP program.

Manager info

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 Launceston TAS, Australia:
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.
