The Gingerbread Cottage was cosy and warm.
I would describe it as rustic with all the required amenities to make our stay comfortable.
It was very private with own garden and easy walk to IGA store for supplies, The owner was welcoming and supplied freshly baked muffins everyday.

Dear JBBtrav

Thank you for taking the time to review our lovely cottages, nestled in the heart of Westbury.

Being self-contained, many guests do enjoy having the convenience of a very well-stocked IGA only 100m from the front door. We also have a great country butcher just across the road and a delightful, private courtyard with BBQ and solid timber tables to enjoy a relaxing dinner.

Amanda's muffins are a specialty, often made with local produce such wild blackberries, picked from sprawling bushes alongside meandering country lanes - a specialty that has helped her win multiple awards for many years at the local show.

We do hope you have time to drop by and see us again. Until then, safe travels...................Danny

Gingerbread cottage is an old, very old for Australia, cottage. It has modern appliances etc. but retains its aura of the past...low ceiling, cosy feel, wood panels, small windows, decor from a past era. It has a modern cooktop, first rate shower, comfy bed, off road parking etc. If you like modern white new hotel style then this is not for you. I enjoyed the ambiance of the past with the modern conveniences. Most enjoyable were the very ample supplies and daily delivery of fresh baking (muffins, slices and home baked bread). If you want an experience of what living in a small cottage was like, give the gingerbread cottage a go.

Dear George

Thank you for taking the time to review our cottages. Gingerbread Cottage (1 or our 6 cottages) absolutely retains the aura of the past, with many curios from early-1900's. Indeed, it was a 2-room workers cottage from 1880, fully renovated and extended in 1996 - winning State Heritage awards for preservation.

Coupled with our breakfast provisions - lovingly put together by Amanda (did you know she's a multi-award winner for her muffins, slices and home-made bread?), this is a very popular combination.

Enjoy your travels in Northern Tassie and we hope to see you again when next you travel.............Danny

It's place like this we're out for on our trips and the Gingerbread Cottages are just perfect. From the moment we pushed the bikes into the little courtyard with the apple trees, we knew we would enjoy our stay in the beautifully restored cottage. Too bad we only stayed overnight. Definitely a place where you could spend some time. Local IGA is just up the road, so picking up supplies for your dinner is easy. Just make sure you don't buy anything for breakfast there, but rather opt in for a breakfast hamper with your cottage. The homemade stuff, especially the bread, is just too lovely.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We absolutely love having cyclists here and can even store your bikes for you under cover. Danny is a keen cyclist also and can advise on any of the wonderful rides in the Westbury vicinity - from 1/2hr casual jaunts, to full-day treks. And the best thing is - virtually no traffic!! What could be better ??

All the very best on your forward journey.............Amanda & Danny Taylor

Our family recently visited Tasmania for the first time from Queensland and we were looking for a place to stay between Hobart and Cradle Mountain. Our stay in the Apple Tree Cottage was a welcome relief from your standard hotel room experience we had for the balance of our trip.
We loved sitting out the back looking at the gardens and heritage cottage, enjoying a beer in the late afternoon.
The cottage and gardens are beautifully presented and maintained. The cottage is self contained and it was great to have some living space, catch up on washing and stock up on supplies at the nearby IGA.
We were greeted warmly by Amanda and her hospitality extended to providing us with some home cooked muffins.
If you want your Tasmanian experience to be more than drab hotels, this stay is highly recommended.

We 3 came over from New Zealand for a wedding in Westbury and decided to stay here. Cannot fault the stay. It was just like being at home and better! Lovely big home with everything we would want or need. Delicious home baked goodies from our hosts every day! Delicious muffins!! Certainly base yourself here for some great journeys around Tasmania. There is even a barbeque area for any of the the guests to use while staying there..

Thank you MargR26 for your lovely review.

We believe we have absolutely the best place to stay in Northern Tassie and we're passionate about it. We do try so hard to ensure all our guests have everything they need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay, from conveniences, to our private communal courtyard and our lovely gardens.

To ensure everyone feels like they're home, Amanda prepares daily goodies for guests....and what a cook she is, winning "Best in Show" for cooking at the Westbury Show for 3 consecutive years!! Absolutely fantastic achievement !!

We're so glad you had the opportunity to come to Westbury and enjoy your stay with us.

Safe Travels..............Danny
