Planning a trip to the Tamar Valley? You’ll need somewhere to sleep!
Launceston is a great place to base yourself to explore the Tamar Valley. But if you’re seeking a more relaxed vibe we suggest you get out of the city and soak up the beautiful scenery. You’ll also be closer to the wineries.
Here are four suggestions for accommodation with soul and character, right in the heart of the valley:
Farm Stay with Bacon
Langdale Farm, Glengarry
Did somebody say bacon? Enjoy a true paddock to plate experience amidst the tranquility of Langdale Farm. Owners Oliver and Fiona raise rare breed pigs on the property. You are welcome to tour the farm, meet the pigs and enjoy the excellent farm produce on the BBQ. Dogs are welcome to stay too.
Bed & Breakfast in Style
Jensens B&B, Beauty Point
Enjoy the hospitality of a traditional bed and breakfast set amidst a beautiful garden and river views. Your genial host, Carol provides a cooked breakfast and plenty of local tips to enhance your stay.
Glamp It Up
Wingtons Glamping, Clarence Point
Nathaniel and Graham, the charming hosts of this groovy venture, say this is “camping the way it should be”. Lockable safari tents with Persian-style carpets and luxurious queen-sized beds evoke the glamour of a 1930’s Grand Tour.
Cape Cod Style on the Tamar
Beachside, Beauty Point
Built in 1950 and lovingly cared for by the present owners, this is a charming 3 bedroom house house with plenty of character and lovely views over the Tamar River at Beauty Point. Shops and pubs are a stroll away. Your furry friends are allowed to come too!
Apart from wineries, there’s plenty of other things to fill the days-
Walk the beach at Greens Beach or hike the West Head trail
Fish and chips from George Town Seafoods (week day lunch only) they have the best fresh fish too!
