Newry has magnificent views over the Longford district towards the Great Western Tiers. Many artists have been, and still are, attracted to this location because of its views and ever changing light and perspective.
Great accommodation for families or small groups including small conferences who wish to experience a taste of Tasmanian country life and history in a location which enables them to extensively tour Tasmania.
The house has a large English garden to be enjoyed as well as a tennis court and pool. There are beautiful walks on the property along the frontage to the South Esk river and the Mill Race, the farms river flats unless flooded and along nearby Pateena Road. The farm is intermittently used for grazing of cattle owned by a nearby dairy farmer. There are 2 pet sheep, rabbits, possums and abundant birdlife depending on seasons to enjoy.
Despite Newrys location close to local townships and Launceston, it is a beautiful, private country retreat. From the moment that one enters the driveway to the farm, one encounters the beautiful, private and serene world of a charming Tasmanian country property.
Guests can enjoy the out buildings from a distance. Guests are asked not to enter them.
