Twyford has 4 bedrooms and sleeps up to 9 guests.The property is located only 1.5 km from the centre of Launceston and is 200 metres to the delightful Newstead shopping centre which boasts a Coles Supermarket, Newsagency, Pharmacy, Post Office, some great eateries, award winning hairdressers and some of the city's best gift shops in Launceston.

Off street parking is available for up to 3 cars and a bus stop nearby ensures guests have their Launceston travel needs covered!

Twyford is is an award winning property and we have made sure to include all the extras to make your stay something special.

The house has been renovated in keeping with the character of the period, but is fitted with all the modern conveniences.

The gourmet kitchen is a delight for foodies and includes a dual fuel classic Falcon Stove, granite bench tops, "Farmers" cupboards and a double butler's sink.

The Kitchen flows in to an open plan dining and living area with comfortable seating and a large LCD TV. Directly off the living area there is a great outdoor deck with outdoor setting and BBQ.

A separate formal lounge room with LCD TV and DVD ensures that guests have their choice of entertainment. The formal lounge retains the timber paneling from the arts and crafts period which is a much admired feature of the property. This room also features classic leather chairs and a goose feather filled large club couch.

The master bedroom's main feature is the unusual circa 1910 Nickel plated king size 4 poster bed- perfect for those looking for a touch of romance.

The second bedroom is very large and has a king-size bed which can be split into king singles if required. This room also offers a 3rd bed roll-away option if required.

Bedroom 3 offers a double bed and is furnished in the style of the period . A selection of reading materials to suit all tastes sits on the Tasmanian blackwood bookcase.

Bedroom 4 is a single bedroom.

For larger groups an additional ottoman pull out bed is available. A porta-cot and a high chair are also available at no additional charge.

The bathroom is fully equipped and has been renovated to suit the period but has a great tiled walk in shower and of course a claw foot bath to soak in!
