Brickendon Colonial Farm Village Cottages


Brickendon Estate offers guests an extraordinary experience of staying on a World Heritage Site in an original convict built cottage.

The Coachmans and Gardeners cottages were built by convict labour during the 1830s and have been restored to offer an authentic colonial experience. Deep old fashioned baths, antique furnishings and private cottage gardens, these cottages are the closest cottages you will find to times gone by but with modern conveniences. Located in the magnificent Heritage Gardens of Brickendon, both cottages offer unique features that will make your visit to Brickendon complete.

Brickendon’s Farm cottages are a wonderful alternative to the colonial cottages. Constructed with recycled materials and traditional building techniques, the three farm cottages ooze personality and invite guests to relax and unwind from their busy lives. With great views over the farm, a short walk to Brickendon’s World Heritage listed convict built Farm Village and a stroll to the river, these cottages provide a real home away from home. Ideal for either couples, families or groups the farm cottages are often visited by a wandering turkey or rooster and it is not uncommon to see a hen with her numerous chickens passing by. The friendly farm animals are close by so come and enjoy life on the farm.

When planning your holiday – it is worthwhile thinking about travelling distances as Brickendon is within one hours drive of most places in Northern Tasmania and only two hours from Hobart and the East Coast. Use us as a base and enjoy coming home at night to your private cosy cottage.

Pea in a Pod Cottage "Absolutely gorgeous! The photos really don’t convey the gentle, relaxed atmosphere of the place. We were greeted by the resident cat, chooks and chicks both mornings. Were able to sit and have breakfast in the breakfast nook or on the porch feeding the chickens. Would love to stay longer next time; its a world apart in the best possible way."

Sweet Corn Cottage - "Our plan was to stay for 1 night, but we just couldn't leave so soon so we stayed an extra night. Friendly place with lovely surroundings and animals. We finally found a spot that we will certainly return to."

Coachmans Cottage - "Utterly gorgeous. Will be making this a yearly event."
