Wren cottage is a baltic-lined 2-roomed cottage in the grounds of one of Hobart's grand Federation mansions. Completely refurbished with level access and suitable for wheelchairs, we offer peace and quiet comfort away from busy traffic yet so close to Hobart' waterfront-only a 5 minute drive or 20-30 minute level stroll. North Hobart's vibrant ,cosmopolitan restaurant strip, and Australia's oldest picture theatre, is only a 10 minute easy stroll.
Wren has a wonderful king-sized bed (or twin beds if desired),a small kitchenette and walk-in shower in the large new bathroom. Blackwood french doors lead into a warm sunny atrium,perfect for relaxing in after a busy day sightseeing! Alternatively you might like to wander in our unique garden on a basketball court complete with citrus grove and fish ponds,sample the fruit, herbs and chillies, or take a grand tour of magnificent Federation "Werndee", built in 1903 for the Premier of Tasmania, Sir Neil Elliott Lewis. It has since been home to hundreds of Tasmanian and overseas students in it's various incarnations as Hostel and School of Hospitality, before being magnificently restored as a family home.
Small pets are suitable only for Wren cottage. There is a small fenced outside run and also the covered fully enclosed atrium area for sleeping and playing. Please advise type, size and number of pets when booking. There is a $20 pet stay fee.
