“Soul refreshing - amazing.”
Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

A beautiful home set on a gorgeous property. Well designed with lovely décor throughout. The kids felt like prince and princess in their bedrooms, Kitchen was awesome. Waking up to the most beautiful scenery was a balm to the soul. So peaceful. The most amazing music/reading room. Melissa made our stay a dream. Thank you :)

“A slice of heaven in West Kentish”

The directions we were given to find this property were absolutely spot on, so that was just the first point of what became a really very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Set in the heart of some very pretty farming land, and overlooking a local state forest, this property is really high class. The beautiful gardens surrounding the house were really pretty and welcoming, enticing us into the actual property itself, which is amazing. The kitchen is very well equipped, but to add to our delight we found a scrumptious cake awaiting our arrival, complete with berry coulis and cream!!! There are several living areas in the house, including a really snug lounge room, and the wonderful summerhouse, which was a great place to sit and read the paper. Not to be overlooked is the balcony out the back, which was a great place to rest and gaze out at the view over a glass of wine at the end of each day.

The property is not readily accessible by public transport, so you would need a car. It is, however, within easy driving distance of a number of great attractions, including Ashgrove Cheese factory, the Christmas Hills Raspberry farm and the chocolate factory, as well as some sensational natural attractions, like the Cradle Mountain National Park and the Marakoopa caves. It is also easy driving distance to the north coast, and places such as Ulverstone, Burnie and Penguin, which are all great places to explore. It is very close to the town of Sheffield, with all of its wall murals, and also Deloraine, which is not only famous for its topiary, but also for the Tasmanian Craft Festival which is held there every year, and which we were lucky to catch.

Overall, this was an absolutely relaxing and enjoyable stay. We were able to cook our own meals, enjoy some of the local wines (there is a winery just down the lane from the house) and sleep in truly comfortable beds. What more could one want??

I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a tranquil setting and a place to get away from the stresses and pace of life. Melissa and Peter are sensational to deal with, and tended to our every need. I hope you enjoy staying there every bit as much as my husband and I did.

“Stunning house in serenity, has to be seen to be believed”

From the moment we arrived in Sheffield, and travelled the short drive to Kentisbury Country House we were in heaven. 'We' were a two couples of besties.

Set in a stunning location, rolling green hills, lush green for as far as the eye can see, and drinking in the pure country air, this is the Tasmania I had imagined.

We were greeted by the gorgeous Melissa who showed us around and made us feel totally at home. This house was far better than my house, therefore it could not be a home away from home, however it was FAR more than that. This was luxury. THE most well appointed home I have ever had the luck of staying at. The attentive owners have thought of EVERYTHING. The kitchen was well stocked and appointed. There were numerous places for relaxing, either two lounges (we decided there was a ladies lounge, and mens lounge) and the super long dining table fit for kings and queens.

The bedrooms situated upstairs, what a delightful view no matter which room you had, quiet and peaceful. The beds were like sleeping on clouds. The amenities were fabulous. After a long cold walk in Cradle Mountain, a relaxing bath was had in the claw footed bath, I felt like royalty.

I felt inspired and comforted by the delightful Melissa, being greeted by her homemade delights (I have never tasted such mindblowing preserves and jams as what she created)...

Definitely worth the stay...I am definitely going to revisit!

“Brilliant, nothing missing, quiet retreat”
Reviewed 23 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Service and attention to detail is immaculate, warm, inviting and friendly, its a bit 'out of the way' but that's perfect for a getaway. We stayed 2 nights and didn't want to leave. Would be perfect for a small group self catering. The views and the country air and sounds are laid on for 'R&R'. Plenty of natural wonder to explore nearby. Hard to fault.
