Cate has described the listing very well. It is a very special and cosy cottage right on the Tamar River approximately 20 minutes north of Launceston. It accommodated my husband and I, my sister, niece and nephew. The moment we left the car we had a whiff of lavender and the treats continued. We were fortunate that Cate and Chuck greeted us and set up the fire! We were grateful for their flexibility regarding our dates too. We would definitely recommend Lavender Cottage and their hospitality.
