You could be forgiven for thinking these cottages are in the Cotswolds but they are in fact set in the grounds of the Woolmers Estate in Tasmania, Australia! Built around 1840 they have since been converted into private self-catering accommodation.

The estate offers a rare and unique glimpse into Australian Colonial history. There are seven cottages in total which were all at one-time homes to the tradespeople on the estate and have been restored to reflect this fact.

Their uniqueness, set amongst beautiful buildings and grounds on this remarkable estate, creates a stand-alone experience for any visitor choosing to stay in them.

The estate has outstanding cultural significance because it represents a continuous association with the Thomas Archer family, providing an encapsulated record of six generations, and the changes to their lifestyle, from the time the land was first settled in circa 1817 to the death of the last heir in 1994.
