Lakeview Cottage offers self-contained, heritage accommodation at Oatlands, in the Tasmanian Midlands. Oatlands is a one-hour drive north of Hobart (84 km) and a one-hour-and-twenty-minute drive south of Launceston (117 km).
Built in 1827, Lakeview’s original sandstone cottage has been fully restored and refurbished. The property can accommodate up to seven guests and features a wood fire, underfloor and gas heating and electric heating in each of the bedrooms. Lakeview Cottage also has a fully-equipped, modern kitchen and laundry, a bathroom with a luxurious bath and new beds and linen.
You can explore the Lakeview property’s historic buildings including the stables, barn and shearing shed – which once housed a family of ten in the loft. Dry stone walls and a convict-built stone well add to the rustic charm.
Oatlands has one of the finest concentrations of Georgian architecture in Australia. You can stroll through the village to see heritage-listed buildings including the Callington Mill and the convict-built courthouse and gaol. Browse through the craft shops, relax in a local tearoom or take a ghost tour after dark.
