When in Oatlands stay in an authentic Georgian sandstone cottage to really feel the part. Just minutes walk from Callington Mill, and Lake Dulverton, this heritage listed 1830's home offers an opportunity to imagine early Tasmanian life without sacrificing contemporary comforts. It is the perfect location from which to experience the rural town of Oatlands, explore the restored buildings of the former military precinct; and venture further afield to the heritage highlights of the Midlands.
“Historic, cosy and comfortable stay with all of the mod cons (kitchen and bathroom). We enjoyed lighting a fire in the loungeroom with a plentiful supply of kindling, paper and timber. Aviemore was a wonderful introduction to Tasmania for one of our party's first visit to Tassie and proved a highlight during our roadtrip. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here .... a very authentic historic experience, in a lovely historic town. Come prepared for not many options eating-wise mid week. We were able to enjoy an early pub meal in Richmond before arriving in Oatlands.”
A humble heritage listed cottage built with convict bricks in the mid 1800s. Two fireplaces keep the cottage warm during the cold winters experienced on the Central Highlands. The house has been restored with all modern amenities and carefully and thoughtfully curated with a diverse collection of vintage and antique pieces which speak to the varied history of the cottage. Just 90 minutes from Launceston and 1 hour from Hobart, Bothwell is the perfect location from which to explore.
“Not only was the Butcher's Cottage the most adorable place, but Vanessa was one of the best hostesses we've encountered. She was more than helpful from before the beginning to after the end of our stay. Bothwell is a very rural town but the perfect place to be away from the buzz of Hobart and a great location to get to the hikes which is why we're in Tasmania. We couldn't recommend this place more.”

“Absolutely stunning property housing the most magnificent heritage cottages I've ever seen. All the love and hard work poured into these beautiful homes is really evident. I spent hours admiring all the features and decor, it's like being transported back to 1856. Truly amazing and a credit to the hosts who have just excelled at what they have created. All the comforts are top notch with the snuggliest fireplace, couch, bath & bed. So many extras too! An array of wonderful snacks & beverages, breakfast is even provided! Views of the perfectly manicured gardens make for the most relaxing afternoon & evening watching the sunset. I honestly cannot rave about this property any more. It deserves a magazine feature! Simply incredible.”
