It was night, we had eaten at the pub in Richmond before making our way out to Tara's and when we pulled in through the front gate in a state of slight confusion measuring up where to park, when out came Tara with a big grin and right arm waving us towards the visitor car parking. It was the start...

Tara was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. We loved our two bedroom apartment and the peaceful environment. Also, breakfast was amazing and it arrived at exactly the time we requested. We went on the farm tour and enjoyed meeting the animals and hearing about the establishment. We wished we had more than one night and would...

The farm owner Taras gave our family a most memorable experience by taking us through everything about her farm. We fed animals with her and she led the kid ride on her horse. She introduced her farm passionately and knowledgeably. The breakfast basket she delivered to our door step every morning contained freshly made bread, home made jams, juices, fruits...

We stayed for 2 nights, Tara is so friendly and we got a wonderful tour of the farm including getting to feed the animals. A lovely breakfast basket was waiting for us each morning including freshly baked bread. The accommodation was clean and spacious. Only 5 mins out of Richmond we really enjoyed our stay

Thank you for staying and taking the time to write a review. We're quite close to Richmond, and all the wonderful things the small town has to offer - yet still you can enjoy the peace and amazing views only found in the country when staying here.

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!

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.
