Hi John,We are back in Singapore. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Thought you should know that the family has voted your place as best amongst the accomodation we had ( we stayed in 4 different places during our 10-day trip). It is the CLEANEST, MOST COMFORTABLE and we wished we had stayed longer there!Thanks for having us.Regards,Mrs Thio

Sorry - messed up the review rating - I meant to say - Lesley and John are very welcoming hosts. Our two children loved helping to collect fresh veges from the garden and eggs from the chooks, and we all enjoyed the honey from the bees. The views across the valley are picture postcard. Eagle Park is great if you like the idea of an organic lifestyle, but dont want to rough it.
The picturesque village of Lilydale, 28 km north-east of Launceston in the foothills of Mt Arthur, has a rich history of forestry, agriculture, tourism and arts. Lilydale is increasingly becoming the northern gateway to Tasmania's East Coast, offering a beautiful drive through quaint towns, a tapestry of farms, endless adventure, sport, food and wine tourism attractions, and natural wonders. From award-winning vineyards to farm-gates to boutique accommodation to spectacular waterfalls to arts and crafts to gorgeous English gardens – the Lilydale area has cemented itself as a leading destination in its own right.
