Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointing The property did not live up to the blurb, it was only a hobby farm. Unfortunately the place was infested with European wasps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Launceston hideway My partner, 7yo son and I stayed here for a long weekend and just loved it! The property is off a dirt road, nestled in amongst the hills. The sky at night provided a blanket of stars, the mornings were full of native sounds of the kookaburras, peacock, rooster etc and the accommodation was perfectly rustic (beds were super comfy). We had a lovely time and would definitely stay again. Host Michelle was very accommodating with our young son and we helped feed the animals each morning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good stay, away from the hustle of the city We stayed for a couple of days at the red rooster farm. The stay was quite comfortable, the rooms were decent sized and beds were comfy. Linen was provided which was great. The bathroom was really good and the vintage bath was such an awesome feature. The bathroom was well equipped with basic necessities like soap, shampoo, etc. The kitchen was really well stocked with sauces and oils and spices. The owner provided us with the most delicious homemade jams along with some bread and butter and farm fresh eggs. The kitchen had enough utensils to make decent meals. We made all our meals ourselves which saved us a lot of money. The owners are very friendly and we loved interacting with them learning about day to day farm activities, experiences, etc. The farm itself is quite nice. The horse, chooks, rooster, rabbits are all friendly and cute. The peacock and dog are the highlights. Really loved the way the dog came looking for us to play fetch. We had a very relaxing stay at this farm and would love to be back again. The only thing to keep in mind though is that the farm is linked to the main road by a 5 km long stretch of gravel road which can get very dusty. City cars or small cars would struggle to travel on this stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from peaceful dog friendly retreat A very peaceful secluded property. The cottage is super comfy with a great selection of breakfast treats including fresh farm eggs. Our pups had a great time exploring among the thousands of daffodils that surround the property which as it was spring were coming into bloom. A lovely place to "come home" to after a day's exploring. Michelle is a very gracious and helpful hostess.
