Claymoore - ideal for a group

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Claymoore was built in 1940 and was extensively renovated in late 2010. It has a number of distinctive Art Deco features including ornate ceiling roses, vents and cornices.

The modern kitchen has stone bench tops and its own LCD TV built into the front of the pantry. The open plan allows the cook to be in full view of any other guests in the lounge.

Down at the other end of the house is a relaxing sun room that is a beautiful place to have breakfast while the sun streams in or perhaps to have a game of cards away from the TV. The second bathroom makes living with a larger group very convenient. Both bathrooms have a shower and toilet and the main bathroom also has a separate bath.

Less than two blocks away the local shopping centre features a Coles supermarket, the Newstead Hotel , a chemist, cake shop, restaurants, newsagency, Post Office, florist, CBA Bank and more.

Claymoore has a single lock up garage and extra off street parking for another car in the second driveway.


Two of the bedrooms each have a queen bed and one of these also has an en suite.

The third bedroom can sleep six with one of the two bunks having a double bed on the lower level. The 6th bed can be made up in this bunk room if an extra bed is required.

The sun room has a comfortable double sofa bed that can be made up if there are more than 10 staying. That makes 12 beds in total.

A baby bath, highchair and a cot without linen are also available on request for no extra charge.


The paved courtyard just outside the kitchen features man ferns and a gas barbecue with outdoor setting.

A large old apricot tree shades the area in summer and you are welcome to help yourself to the fruit if you are there at the right time.

Spacious Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Claymore is a great home away from home. Old world charm combined with modern conveniences and 15 minute stroll to City Park, the Design Centre, and the CBD, made it a great place to stay in Launceston.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just had our second stay at this property and it was just as good as our first. The house is a great size for a big group, with a couple of living areas and an outside bbq area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful, close to town and very comfortable to stay in - plenty of crockery and seating for a big group. Pat the owner is very easy to communicate with and prompt in replying to questions, requests etc. I highly recommend this property.
