Silverbirch Cottage, Deloraine, Tasmania Australia
Description from the owner
Silverbirch Cottage is a lovely, 3 bedroom heritage cottage in Deloraine, northern Tasmania. It sleeps 7 in permanent beds, and up to 10 using extra fold out beds, making it perfect for larger families or family groups. It has 2 bathrooms, and a large laundry, including machine, dryer and drying cupboard.
Our Rose Room has a queen bed and an unusual hand crafted timber bay window feature. Our Lavender room has a queen and a single bed, and our Fern Room has a queen bed and an ensuite bathroom. We also have a single fold out bed which can be set up in any of these bedrooms, and our fold out double sofa bed ( complete with 4 inch innerspring) provides sleeping for another 2 guests. We also have a fold out cot and high chair for our younger visitors. All of our beds are fitted with electric blankets to ensure our guests are warm during our Tasmanian winters, and the cottage also has high quality heaters which warm the whole cottage very efficiently. We also have a reverse cycle air conditioner for both heating and cooling (yes, it does get pretty hot in Tassie in summer!) Our tariff includes all linen and towels.
Our main bathroom boasts a claw foot bath and separate shower, with the toilet in a separate room (there is another toilet in the ensuite). We supply washing powder for the machine, and we also provide an ironing board and iron.
We have 2 living areas and a large dining space; so there is plenty of space for even the larger groups. We provide a flat screen TV, DVD player, Ipod dock and a large collection of DVDs to ensure there are no shortage of ways to spend down time.
But even better than the cottage are its beautiful gardens, created by a professional designer. They provide a lovely secluded oasis to relax and pretend to ponder life's meaning, and children love the little "secret garden" paths which meander around the property, which is fenced and child-safe. The cottage has a resident brush tail possum who has a nest on one of the trees - can you find it?
The yards are dotted with silver birch trees which provide dappled shade in summer and stunning silhouettes during cooler months and at dusk. Our courtyard has a large barbeque and a hammock, and it is a beautiful private space for al fresco dining.
Our cottage is a short walk from the local shops and cafes and the Visitors centre, so there is plenty of amenity whether you want to self-cater or eat out. There is a lovely loop walk around the Meander River, and Launceston is a 30 minute drive away. Silverbirch Cottage provides a cosy and tasteful base from which to explore the beautiful area nearby, including Mole Creek, Solomon's Caves, Huntsman Lake, Liffey Falls and Cradle Mountain....Read more
