We stayed here recently and from the moment we were welcomed by Tara to the time we left we were very happy 😊 people. After 2 cold and wet days in Hobart [including snow on mt Wellington] we found the peace, quiet and warmth so wonderful. The unit had 2 bedrooms with good quality linen and was light and spacious....

What a find!! Tara's is ideally located 5 minutes from everything trendy and touristy Richmond has to offer yet it is a genuine Farmstay - we were greeted by the very friendly dog and Tara's 'girls' - the ducks and chooks as well as the wonderful Tara herself. The accommodation was spotless and comfy, we slept soundly and in the...

The owner is very nice and providing wonderful farm stay and animal feeding experience. The room is very clean and neat, home-made breakfast is even better than 5-star hotel's. The most important is that the cost is very reasonable and relatively low compared to the surrounding hotels. Highly recommended!

Thanks so much Tara and family for taking such good care of us. We had a great time feeding the chooks, sheep, rabbits and horse! The accommodation is really comfortable, warm and nicely decorated.

Everything was wonderful for our one night stay. We wish we had stayed here longer and driven into Hobart daily. Very clean, modern, warm, quiet. The breakfast basket was divine with homemade bread and jams. The smaller apartment has a little kitchen and there is even a washing machine so we were able to leave with clean clothes. Tara is...

Thank you Janette. We're delighted that you enjoyed the home made bread and jams. Being located just 30 mins drive from the centre of Hobart city - but still in a completely rural setting is a great bonus and means our guests can enjoy the best of both worlds when they come to stay. Thanks again. Tara.

I made the mistake of only staying the last 2 nights there. Friendly family run barn. Loved the selection of the breakfast basket. Everything to do with this place is fresh and amazing. Only 1 little issue is the shower floor is slippery when wet. (maybe an option is some grip mat or non slip mat). Plan on returning in...

What is not to like.I was expecting something simple,but we received a huge modern well considered apartment,with everything we could possibly require.If you need accommodation in the Richmond area look no further.There are apparently two apartments ,we stayed in the wellington.as its a farm stay you do need a car.Bite the bullet and just go there.

A friend and I stayed at Tara's for one night with our children, for a little escape from the city. It was incredibly clean with everything we needed. Tara was so helpful and friendly, the children loved their little horse ride and feeding the sheep and rabbits. Breakfast was amazing! Thank you for a lovely stay.

I had done the research and Tara's lived up to our hopes of 'a home away from home'. We stayed last week as a family of 5, three adults and two young teens....
