Welcome to Ashdowns of Dover, a traditional country house thoroughly modernised to provide our guests with all the comforts and hospitality of a hosted Bed & Breakfast.
A scenic 70 minute drive through the Huon Valley and you arrive at the township of Dover, set between the majestic Adamsons Peak and picturesque Port Esperance; Dover is ideally situated as a base for exploring the attractions of the Huon Trail and Far South Tasmania.
We are a hosted guest-house and for your comfort offer three en-suite guest rooms for individual sale complete with restful queen, king or twin beds, television, DVD player, tea & coffee making facilities and a mini-bar stocked with tasty snacks and fine local wines and beers. Relax in our sun room enjoying afternoon tea or a glass of bubbles on the deck whilst taking in the splendid view of Reeves Hill and our meandering sheep and curious chickens.
Our rooms range from 18 to 22 square metres in size and feature contemporary styling and amenities, brand new plush carpets, comfortable pillow top beds and en-suite wet rooms with walk-in showers. Our largest room has a maximum occupancy of 3 guests whilst the remaining two rooms allow a maximum occupancy of 2 guests per room.
Relax with the in-room entertainment system featuring 32-inch flat screen LCD TV with DVD player. Enjoy our large, well-ventilated bathrooms and Ecossential bathroom treats. When required, work away at a writing desk with additional power points for laptops, mobile phones and iPods, plus bedside radio alarm clock.
Double beds are either queen-sized or king with an option to split into 2 generous singles as well as an additional rollaway bed available on request. All our room rates include Wifi and tea & coffee making facilities.
Delicious breakfast ingredients are sourced locally with many ingredients grown or produced on the property. We pride ourselves in offering a full breakfast that includes a range of continental goodies as well as a cooked breakfast. Seasonal fresh fruit, cereals, home baked goods, preserves, bacon and sausages from an award winning local butcher and eggs from our own hens. If you have any particular dietary requirements please let us know at time of booking.
The property has been modernised and designed with the "less able" in mind. Although the house and land are set on a gentle slope of around 10:1, all areas of the house and gardens are accessible without the need of using any steps.
The en-suite bathrooms are of a "wet area" design with gently sloping tiled floors. The width of all doors and shower access areas exceeds 780mm, the height of all light switches are 1300mm, all door handles are of the lever type, the toilet seat height is 450mm, the sink height is 810mm with no under sink storage or vanity unit to hinder access and all bathroom tap-ware are single lever taps.
Outside of the house, hard surface sealed pathways provide access to the sealed parking area, covered smoking area and garden. The vegetable garden has wide mulched pathways. The wooden deck at the rear of the house is accessible without steps from the breakfast room but has steps leading directly down to the garden. These can be by-passed by accessing the garden and/or smoking area from the front door of the Bed & Breakfast.
Whether you choose to see the many sights on offer in the Far South or just relax and enjoy our facilities and gardens, we trust your stay will be worth leaving home for.
