Overview

About the property

In 1853 a flour mill was built near the foot of the spectacular Western Tiers (Northern Tasmania). Now it's divided into two stunning cottages. They're a fine example of early colonial architecture, delightfully decorated, and furnished with glowing antiques. However, they do have modern bathrooms and small kitchens, so you can be self-sufficient (all accommodation has some stairs). Port and nibbles on arrival .Serviced daily.

Your hosts will bring you a special gourmet breakfast with home made jams, local produce & 'yummy' treats. You are then free to head out to go fishing, play golf, play tennis or go mountain hiking nearby. Don't miss the Local Art works displayed in the Bowerbank Mill B&B Fine Art and Craft Gallery.

Experience some of Tasmania’s unique flora & fauna, lofty mountains, network of over 200 limestone caves & with the added bonus of stunning scenery, visit central northern Tasmania. Here the rugged Great Western Tiers Mountain Range,listed World Heritage Wilderness area, meets the rich fertile pastoral land in the Meander Valley.

Using Deloraine as a base, easy drives take the visitor to rainforests & sub-alpine vegetation, where ancient trees grow & tiny wildflowers dot the landscape with colour. Cycling & bushwalking tracks allow the visitor to slow down & view the mosaic of colour in spring & autumn; in summer to smell the bush fragrances on a balmy temperate climate day; in winter sparkling snow capped mountains & crisp air delight the senses. Allow time to catch a glimpse of a native marsupial or pretty bird or try fishing in one of the many trout filled streams & rivers that cascade down from the Central Plateau Lakes.

Add all these magnificent natural wonders to the colonial heritage, and Deloraine becomes a DESTINATION not just a place to pass through. Deloraine is a classified historic town with a charming main street that curves gently down to the Meander River — anyone for trout fishing? The town has a cafe culture & a bohemian, “arts & crafts’ feel, making it a natural choice for the Tasmanian Craft Fair in November each year. The fertility of the lush farmland in the surrounding Meander Valley produces the best ingredients for many specialist eatery outlets. Travellers can feast on a selection of gourmet food delights, such as raspberries, cheeses, honey, salmon, lamb or a juicy beef steak.

Bowerbank Mill B&B is a perfect base near prisine Lakes, Rivers, Wilderness, Cradle Mountain, Wineries, Galleries, Heritage Villages, Shopping & Gourmet Food Outlets. And only a 30 minutes drive to Launceston & Devonport (Airports & Ferry).

Upstairs the alluring loft bedroom has a Queen size half-tester bed, bath/shower ensuite. Enjoy the genuine antiques & period curios. This delightful cottage has been described by guests as having “Medieval charm” & being full of romance as from the pages of a “Thomas Hardy novel”. Guests exclaimed: “Such a charming & comfortable B&B to stay in for two nights. Loved the fire, bath, port & breakfast. We were lucky to be able to stay in such a special place. Will pass on recommendations forever!” The accommodation includes gourmet breakfast with homemade goodies (jams etc.), port & nibbles on arrival.
