This unique weekend hideaway is just 10 minutes drive from the pristine white beaches of Orford and departure to the magical Maria Island National Park.
Just 40 minutes drive from Hobart airport, you will discover this small rural hamlet offering a true taste of country life in Tasmania. Located in the historic farming village of Buckland, The Storekeeper's Boutique Accommodation is a beautifully appointed 1840s sandstone cottage with a contemporary edge. Located next to the original Buckland General Store, the cottage was the shopkeeper's residence. The Storekeeper's is operated by Twamley Farm, which is just a short drive from the village of Buckland. Our guests have full access to wander amongst the historic buildings at the farm, meet the animals, walk, mountain bike or get involved in the farm activities.
The Storekeeper's has been designed with indulgence and relaxation in mind. The cottage has two queen size bedrooms and fully equipped kitchen with gourmet mini bar, breakfast provisions, Nespresso coffee pod machine and gourmet pre-prepared meals on hand. The study is well stocked with books, DVDs and games. We also offer free Wi-Fi. You will enjoy relaxing by the wood fire or out on the lawn at the end of the day with a glass of our best local East Coast wine. The property is specifically designed with couples in mind and is not really suitable for young children.
The Storekeeper's is the perfect base to go behind the scenery and discover some of the East Coast's hidden treasures. Visit our family's working farm. Twamley Farm has been operating since the 1840s and has a range of walks and trails. Feel free to grab a mountain bike and explore. There are also many local short walks including the Convict Road to the Paradise Probation Station ruins and the Cliff Top walk at Orford or discover the intriguing story behind the historic St John the Baptist Church Buckland, explore the local beaches or enjoy a drive up the East Coast Wine Route to visit the many vineyards along the way.
You could just stop a while, wind down, relax, enjoy a beer at the Buckland pub and get to know some of the interesting local characters.
