We take your safety very seriously and must therefore point out that this old house and its garden may contain unfamiliar hazards. The property has special character because it offers a real experience of another lifestyle; it is not a sanitised replica. Please keep this in mind and be careful and cautious throughout your stay.

Children especially need to know that polished floors are slippery, and stairs are dangerous. Swings, tree climbing and garden exploring are good fun here, provided old fashioned care and good behaviour is used to keep safe.

Similarly, your care and good behaviour will keep our heritage property safe. It is appropriate to make clear that fair wear and tear is included in the tariff, but the cost of breakage and/or damage will be added to your account.

People with phobias are warned that animals, birds and insects live in the local environment and our garden). Fortunately, Tasmania is comparatively free of poisonous and/or aggressive wild life; and since we do make an effort to keep the house free of creepy crawlies and rodents, we can be certain that there will not be dangerous creatures inside. However, guests should not expect this genuine historic cottage to be at all times totally free of other life.
