About Ellie Atkins
My husband and I are locals to Stanley, and own and operate our own accommodation, situated right in the heart of the beautiful village of Stanley. We are also farmers, owning and operating a Murray Grey beef cattle stud here in the lush seaside village.
Ellie Atkins purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Ellie Atkins chose Stanley
Our accommodation property at 8 Church Street is right in the very heart of the village, however is privately situated with its own private off street car park right beside the accommodation. We have both the Spa Cottage and the Studio Apartment, co-joined, but sound proofed and fire walled, with their own very separate entrances, ensuring privacy for our guests.
What makes this Cottage unique
Both the Spa Cottage and Studio Apartment are only 20m - 500m from all the lovely cafes, breakfast bars, restaurants, shops, supermarket and the pristine beaches. This is one of the oldest buildings in Stanley and is heritage listed, however has been fully renovated, but retains its own unique charm.

Great Property with all you need for a luxurious stay. Right in the village of Stanley, walking distance to great restaurants, shops and attractions.
Ellie's accommodation is right in the main street of Stanley, yet is situated back off the street with a private off street car park right beside the accommodation. All the lovely cafes, restaurants, shops, beaches and golf course are only a short stroll (between 20 meters and 500 meters). The icon of Stanley is The Nut, 152 meter high monolith with a chairlift to the summit, and it is around this feature the township has been built, making Stanley quite unique, and stunningly beautiful. There are Little Penguins to be viewed in their rookery at the base of the Nut, Seal Cruises operating out of Stanley and you may even see Tasmanian Devils in the wild. You will definitely need to spend 2-3 days minimum to take in all the area has to offer.
