Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Tanglewood is an historically important Federation home (c.1906) surrounded by 3/4 acre of relaxed English gardens, birdsong and the occasional possum! This much loved home is located less than a minutes walk from the centre of Sheffield, but is beautifully peaceful and private. As you drive down our street, you will be awed by the majestic Mount Roland that stands as a sentinel over our daily lives.
We are delighted to live here and to share our home and our town with our guests.

The space
This room has the option of being configured as either a king bed or two extra long singles, depending on your requirements. (There is also a Queen room available; please click on my profile picture to see both listings.)

We have only owned Tanglewood for a short time, so it is a work in progress and a labour of love. The garden is glorious, especially in Spring, Summer and Autumn. In winter, there is a crackling open fire in the living room!
There is a small snack and drinks menu available for your convenience and complimentary sherry in your room along with a fridge, kettle, quality coffee bags and a selection of teas.
Wifi and Netflix are included and for your personal use, there is a hairdryer and an iron and ironing board can be provided on request.
Washing and drying can also be accommodated for a small fee, depending on time constraints.
All tissues, toilet paper, soaps, lotions, shampoo and conditioner are Australian made (Tasmanian made when available), organic and environmentally friendly. Where possible, we use similar products for cleaning. These have the added bonus of being non-allergenic and good for the Earth.
Our space is shared by a very special cat, named Coco. She is a well-loved Torbi who believes that we are her happy slaves and the garden is her personal paradise. She can be rather timid, but will probably seek you out when you least expect it. She is not allowed into the guest rooms, but that doesn't mean she won't try!

Guest access
You will have your own bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Shared areas include dining room, sun room, living room, verandah and garden.

Other things to note
This bedroom offers two sleeping configurations. The five star hotel quality bed is king size but can be separated into two extra long single beds if required. Both configurations provide electric blankets and high quality linen and doonas.

Sheffield, Tasmania, Australia

Sheffield is possibly the friendliest town we have ever lived in! Located only 20 minutes from Devonport and just over an hour to both Cradle Mountain and Launceston, it is a hub for tourists and locals alike. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, encompassing mountains and lakes through to farmland and finally the coast.
Known as the Town of Murals, Sheffield has a thriving artisan community, great cafes and restaurants and important services including a Post Office, chemist, medical centre and the pub!
Ideally situated for exploring the many different experiences available, close by you will find Lake Barrington, an international rowing course and boating mecca, the Mole Creek Caves, Tasmazia and the Village of Lower Crackpot, the Tasmanian Arboretum and the Wild Mersey Mountain Bike Track, to name just a few attractions.
We are on the doorstep of Cradle Mountain, the Overland Track, Walls of Jerusalem National Park and other single to multi day hikes through some of Tasmania's richest wilderness areas.
Why not base yourself with us and traverse the many delights of our region - arts and crafts, galleries, truffles, wine and cider, cheese, chocolate, seasonal fresh fruit and berries and the charming coastal towns dotted along Bass Strait.
Or, just sit in our garden with a cuppa or a glass of wine and enjoy some time out.
