Why Melissa McGleenan chose West Kentish
During a trip to Tassie in 1997 discovered this property by chance, fell in love with it, built the house in 2000 and used it as a family holiday house until 2005 when we decided to move here permanently. We have been offering the house as a holiday rental since 2005 and I have had the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world.
What makes this House unique
I have a great love of European architecture. especially rustic farmhouses and Tasmania is the perfect climate to build in that style. The walls are thick and rendered, keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter, the views are beautiful from every window. I wanted to create a family home where everyone gathers in the kitchen and sits together at the long lunch table to laugh and unwind. It seems to have been successful, our guests always want to take that table home! The rotunda is also a special space, over the top in red and gold, it makes a relaxing place for the adults.

Loved Everything About This Place! Spectacular Views!
What a find this Kentish Country House was! We (3 adults and 1 teenagers) spent a glorious two nights here – but wished we could spend more. We booked the house based on its proximity to Cradle Mountain and the town of Sheffield. The location was a short drive to Cradle Mountain and offered the convenience of restaurants and shops in quaint town of Sheffield nearby.
It’s obvious that Melissa has dedicated a lot of time in the layout and decor to make this house amazing. You will want for nothing when you stay at this delightful home. Comfortable, warm and well-appointed, the furnishings are luxurious with everything themed and very clean. You are spoilt for choice for rooms to relax in. The rotunda is stunning we enjoyed spending our early evening in this room. The kitchen has every amenity you could ask for, with Melissa offering to accommodate should something be missing. We loved the big long dining table and the church pew. The setting is in a beautiful scenic valley and the grounds of the house are surrounded by trees with that offer amazing Autumn colours. Can honestly say it was one of the nicest places we have experienced. Thank you Melissa.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, it is appreciated. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope the remainder of your Tassie holiday was fabulous!
Thank you for being perfect guests.
Perfect holiday spot
What a gem! Outstanding, classy, accommodation in a magnificent location, in a lovely region of NW Tasmania. All of the local attractions are nearby, and this is like a second home to come back to at the end of each day.
Couldn’t be better.
Thank you, it was a pleasure to meet you both. so glad you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful area. Good luck with your future plans.
It was wonderful.
Great home, beautiful scenery, comfortable beds, nice amenities and lovely hosts. Highly recommended.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, it was such a pleasure to have met you and your wonderful family. I hope you enjoy the remainder of your Aussie holiday.
Thank you for being perfect guests!
You are most welcome here any time.
A stunning home, comfortable and everything you need. I would recommend taking your own food to cook up a storm in the lovely kitchen, or use the bbq. Beautiful dining spots inside and out. The town has very limited (and not always open) options.
Thanks for your lovely review Michelle. It was so nice to meet you and your family.
A lovely house in a beautiful area. Allow for a longer stay because you will not want to leave.
Tuscany in Tasmania
What a lovely little spot! If you're looking for accommodation with a difference I would highly recommend this Tuscan villa tucked away in the glorious Tasmanian country side. Close to the magnificent Mt Roland and the town of Sheffield, Kentisbury cottage is a good base to explore this magnificent part of Tasmania.
A special thanks to the owner, Melissa, for making a birthday cake for my Mum, she loved it!
Thank you Catherine, absolute pleasure to host you all. Glad the birthday girl was happy.
Thank you for leaving the house immaculate, it is much appreciated.
Our guests enjoy a trip to Cradle Mountain for walking/hiking. Tasmazia, the largest collection of mazes in the Southern Hemisphere delights the young and not so young. Mole Creek Caves are fun and informative with their underground river and glow worms. The coast is a beautiful half hour drive with the Tassie Tasting Trail along the way. Anvers Chocolate Cafe, Ashgrove Cheese Farm, Salmon Ponds, vineyards for a lovely day out. Sheffield, Town of Murals is our quirky nearby town. Between the mountains and the sea, Kentish is a magical area.
