“Beautiful large home with multiple living areas suitable for big families. Amazing views. We loved the tennis court and the gardens are to die for. Apparently the best in Tassie in their prime! Not a single complaint from us thanks for sharing such a unique home."

“A great place if you have a car and children. We explored most of the day then came back to wonderful house and views. So much space for the 2 families, tennis court and swimming pool and tree house to amuse the active children. We had a lovely welcome basket and card and great easy self checkin so no problem with late arrivals."

“We stayed at Newry with a total of four couples for a family wedding at a nearby property. Newry with 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms is a very comfortable spot. It is only 5 minutes drive from Longford or Perth, Parking for multiple vehicles. The house was very clean and tidy on arrival and the garden is immaculate. When we arrived we were greeted by a black wallaby on the front lawn and a lot of small birds and a few wild rabbits. Overall very happy with our stay at Newry."

“Newry is absolutely magnificent. It is located in a peaceful rural setting, with stunning views to the South Esk River. If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the place to be. The property is huge and very well appointed and every need is provided for. Just to add a personalised touch, a little welcome card along with a basket with local produce for us to sample was left, which was really great. We found commuting to the various sights easy from this location. The added bonus was the availability of Netflix and Youtube for indoor entertainment when the weather was not very conducive to outdoor activities. Overall, a fantastic and memorable stay for us."

Thanks for the pots and peelers provided when requested. Kitchen scissors would be useful. Excellent farm tour and helpful local knowledge.”

“Many thanks to the family for so kindly sharing their beautiful property in Longford. It was a wonderful farm-stay experience loved by the whole family! The children particularly enjoyed playing in the tree house, exploring the cottage-style gardens, riding on the tractor and visiting the pet lambs.
We are very grateful for the generous hospitality extended to our family during our stay. It is a beautifully appointed homestead, well equipped for families. We enjoyed a fun filled week and hope to return again.”

“A great place to stay with a large group. We had 5 adults and 3 kids, plenty of room for all. Loved the basket of goodies on arrival. We all love the pool/tennis court and the wildlife. Great location, we travelled all over the northern part and to Hobart. Very comfortable large country farm house, enjoyed by all. Nothing was a problem to Jeanette, very helpful.
We have had a wonderful week, thank you. Couldn’t have had a better place to stay with kids.
P.s Longford IGA is great and open late.”

"Newry is a very special place. A little bit of old England Country Estate in the heart of the most historic and picturesque part of Tasmania. The property was only minutes from Launceston airport but it felt as though we were a world away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday. We loved that the property had sweeping views across to the Western Tiers where the sunsets from the kitchen window were amazing. Our boys had so much fun fishing and what a treat to have a private river frontage. We explored so much of the central and midlands as the location was perfectly located to explore the exceptional food and wine in this area.
The property was immaculate and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped as well as the laundry.
We had an amazing stay and the kids loved the farm animals, it was a delightful experience and we would thoroughly recommend Newry as a wonderful 5 star farm stay experience."
