About this listing

WORKING FARM | ON THE TASTING TRAIL | HISTORIC HOMESTEAD

Standing proud on a 160 acre working farm is the 1840s Thornby Farm Accommodation for 7 guests (and well behaved dogs). It’s like you’ve stepped back in time but with all the modern comforts and plenty of things to do.

Location is perfect, just 30 min from both Launceston and Devonport and on the Tasting Trail to try Tasmania’s best regional produce. You’ll experience the Raspberry Farm, Ashgrove Cheese, Anvers Chocolates, many distilleries,  honey makers and so much more!

Thornby Farm accommodation is well equipped for fun. Happy dance your win on the tennis court. Play basketball, ping pong, croquet, board games, read, cook scones (recipe and ingredients supplied) and get to know the menagerie of farm animals. Feed chooks, make friends with Goldie the horse, Poly the goat and resident sheep.

Collect eggs, toast marshmallows on the fire pit, sway in the hammock or wander through the orchard and pluck some plump juicy fruit or raspberries when in season. And don’t forget the bikes for further adventure.

Thornby Farm Accommodation is a cosy retreat after a day hiking spectacular nature trails and sightseeing Liffey Falls – one of Tasmania’s finest set of waterfalls at the Great Western Tiers. Or after a day with a Tasmanian devil at Trowunna’s Wildlife Sanctuary. This region is a mecca for caving enthusiasts too and the amazing world of the underground limestone caves at Mole Creek- Marakoop and King Solomon, will have you in awe.

Thornby Farm Accommodation is perfect for all seasons and can cater for photo shoots as well.

If you feel like extending your Tassie adventure, stay at the hosts other property – a super cute 50’s retro Boat Harbour Beach House in the North West.
