Unique, self -contained holiday cottage in Blackmans Bay 15 minutes from Hobart.
About Judith Cornish
Hi There, We are the owners of 19 Blue self contained Holiday Cottage in Blackmans Bay. We also run a Business called Live History in which we bring the history of Tasmania to life using our skills as actors. Each day at 12 Noon we can be seen performing our iconic play Her Story. It is set in the Cascades Female Factory & tells the story of a convict woman. It's done in Strolling Theatre style so, by the end, you also know a lot about the history of convict women. Guests staying at 19 Blue can see us setting off in costume.......plus of course you are encouraged to come & see our performance. Some people say it is the highlight of their stay in Tasmania but that makes us BLUSH!!! We also love hosting our cottage of which we are very proud. We put a lot of love & care into making your stay comfortable & just that little bit different. 19 Blue is furnished with eclectic things all combining to give a country feel. The home made bread, jam & eggs from our own chooks are delicious! You are welcome to come down & visit the chooks & bring them your food scraps & also pick any, in season, fruit & veggies from our garden. 19 Blue is the very opposite of a slick, bland, hotel chain! It has character & soul... You can purchase our own jams & chutneys plus our lovely homemade soaps too which make lovely holiday gifts. We respect your privacy but are also on hand to help & advise & welcome you down for a cuppa or glass of wine if you are the sociable types!!

Why Judith Cornish chose Blackmans Bay
19 Blue is just that bit different so satisfies those who are looking for a holiday cottage with a Vibe! It is set in a lovely garden and has lovely views over Blackmans Bay. Despite being just fifteen minutes from Hobart it has a rural feel to it with beaches and the bush just minutes away. It stands at the gateway to the Huon Valley and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and is just twenty minutes drive away from the Bruny Island Ferry Terminal. Yet, it also offers local cafes, shops and amenities such as doctors, a library and hairdressers. The trendy Kingston Beach is only two minutes down the road. Your hosts, Judith and Chris Cornish are caring and friendly and you will find a brilliant Information Folder with suggestions for day trips to do in the area. Our many Reviews on different websites all bear testimony to 19 Blue and its charms. We look forward to welcoming YOU soon.

Little home away from home!
We loved our stay at 19 Blue! Such hospitable thoughtful hosts and there wasn't one thing to fault. Loved the fresh homemade bread and jam, and the fresh eggs and bacon. The location was also perfect to explore the Hobart surrounding areas during our first few days in Tassie. Highly recommended! Thanks Judith and Chris!
Hi Jenny and Paul, Thanks so much for leaving this glowing Review. It is much appreciated! Hope you are enjoying the remainder of your holiday on our lovely island. Best Wishes, Judith & Chris.
Comfortable and Cosy
My daughter and I stayed here and it was perfect for the 2 of us. It was nice and warm and had everything we needed.It also had a terrific view which I enjoyed every morning while having my morning coffee. The homemade touches Judith put in the property were lovely. Highly reccommended.
Thank you so much for leaving this perfect Review for your stay at 19 Blue. You were lovely guests too .........! Judith & Chris.
A wonderful stay!
We recently gave ourselves a short break from grandparent activities and had a most wonderful stay at 19 Blue. The location suited us perfectly: a short zippy trip into Hobart, and easy access to Bruny Island, Cygnet and southern bays and forests. In addition 19 Blue is gorgeous; lovely garden with cornflowers and Cecil Brunner roses together with home bottled fruit and organic broad beans to pick. Loved the chooks too, didn't have to waste any food scraps. The cottage is really comfortable and set up with such care and consideration. Hosts Judith and Chris are friendly, caring and absolutely considerate. We'd love to return.
Dear Anne and Andrew, And we would love to have you return! You were perfect guests in every way. Thank you so much for this wonderful Review. "The Alices" send their thanks for the scraps too - they have been laying extra well ever since! Judith and Chris.
Home away from Home
What a wonderful stay we had at 19 Blue! The cottage was beautifully appointed, so very comfortable, and we appreciated the thoughtfulness that had gone into the needs of the traveller. The generous provision of breakfast items was most welcome. We especially loved the peaceful setting, the trees and cottage garden, the bird life to observe, and of course, the chooks! The owners, Judith and Chris, were very welcoming, considerate and helpful. We look forward to another stay at 19 Blue, our home away from home! Thank you for a memorable 5 days at 19 Blue.
