Corner Cottage: Heritage listed accommodation in the heart of Richmond, closest tourist hub to Hobart and airport. A few minutes' stroll from all of Richmond's main attractions is your home in Tasmania. "The Burrow" is a self contained apartment which sleeps 4 adults or 5 people if one is a child. Our other apt, "The Warren" (with spa) is now open. Please see our other listing. Both apts have access to a beautiful garden and bright, leafy atrium. FREE WIFI in the common areas.

The space
BEDDING: Your apartment, THE BURROW, has two bedrooms (one with queen, one with 2 singles) but there is also the option of using the sofa bed in the small lounge adjacent to the kitchen/dining area (large single, could be a double if you were desperate!). In addition, there is a comfortable, thick foam, single mattress under the double bed which can be slid out and used for a child. A fold out cot is available on request. In summary, can comfortably sleep 4 adults, (5 if you are desperate) or most families with kids.
BATHROOM: The small bathroom includes a shower, toilet and sink, ceiling and wall heaters and heated towel rack.
KITCHEN and SUPPLIES: Your kitchen/dining area is fully equipped with oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. We provide plunger coffee, a selection of teabags, drinking chocolate, cereal, fresh milk and fruit. We sometimes leave you an extra little something, depending on what we've managed to grow at home. You are welcome to pick any fruit or herbs you can find in the garden to add to your meal! And the IGA supermarket is 2 minutes' walk away.
TV: Both the kitchen/dining area and the bedroom have TVs with DVD players.
EXTRAS: Lovely, mellow, antique piano to play on, iron, ironing board, coat hangers, good selection of CDs, DVDs, games, books (adults' and kids'), magazines and toys. And....duck food, as the river is only 2 blocks away and the ducks are very friendly!
WASHING MACHINE AND DRYER: Access by arrangement for longer stays. No extra fees apply. There is also a clothesline in the garden.
FREE WIFI in the common areas.

Where you’ll be

Richmond, Tasmania, Australia

From the "Richmond Village" website:
"Richmond is one of Tasmania's most popular destinations, steeped in history, family-friendly and a hub for food and wine lovers. Nestled in the heart of the Coal River Valley, Richmond was established as an important military staging post and convict station linking Hobart with Port Arthur. The village is famous for its elegant Georgian architecture, with beautiful heritage buildings dating back as early as the 1820's now housing galleries, tea shops, craft boutiques and museums."


"Richmond is one of Tasmania's most popular visitor destinations, showcasing Tasmania and Australia's colonial heritage at every turn. Heritage-listed buildings and features are found on almost every street, so that even a casual evening stroll offers insights into early settlement days. More recently, the agricultural wealth of the Coal River Valley has led to the establishment of a number of premium vineyards and farm gate food businesses, and food and wine tourism has become a major drawcard. Whether it is a family vacation or a romantic getaway, Richmond and the valley will keep you and yours enthralled for days!"

Hello! After living all over the world for the past 20 years, my family and I have finally returned to Australia. I've done all sorts of work, from wildlife tour guide to piano player and language teacher, but I've always wanted to run a little guest house. When I saw Corner Cottage, I knew I'd found it.
I feel incredibly lucky to live here in this Paradise called Tasmania, with its fabulous scenery, fresh air and quality food. What a perfect place to bring up my two kids!
