A rare opportunity to experience colonial living in this spacious stone cottage, many decades ago a staging post on what was then a long and tortuous journey between Hobart and Launceston. There is a woodstore in the cellar, so you can stoke up a roaring fire in the stove while you prepare a cosy family dinner enhanced by the complimentary port, sherry and plunger coffee.
This is just one of many National Trust buildings in Oatlands, which is the perfect centre from which to explore the historic midlands: beautiful Ross and its famous bridge, the lakes for a days fishing, Bothwell for a days golf, the winding country roads through Tunnack and Buckland to the Wielangta Forest and, of course, there’s Oatlands itself, packed with charm and history.
And at the end of each day, much less exhausted than the travellers of old, you’ll return gladly to the cosy warmth of Amelia Cottage.
Although Amelia Cottage appears to be a small colonial cottage, it can accommodate up to nine people as there are five bedrooms in the attics, in addition to a double bedroom on the ground floor.
The cottage is exclusively yours so can be one booking only.
