About the property

Wren cottage is a baltic-lined 2-roomed cottage in the grounds of one of Hobart's grand Federation mansions. Completely refurbished with level access and suitable for wheelchairs, we offer peace and quiet comfort away from busy traffic yet so close to Hobart' waterfront-only a 5 minute drive or 20-30 minute level stroll. North Hobart's vibrant ,cosmopolitan restaurant strip, and Australia's oldest picture theatre, is only a 10 minute easy stroll.

Wren has a wonderful king-sized bed (or twin beds if desired),a small kitchenette and walk-in shower in the large new bathroom. Blackwood french doors lead into a warm sunny atrium,perfect for relaxing in after a busy day sightseeing! Alternatively you might like to wander in our unique garden on a basketball court complete with citrus grove and fish ponds,sample the fruit, herbs and chillies, or take a grand tour of magnificent Federation "Werndee", built in 1903 for the Premier of Tasmania, Sir Neil Elliott Lewis. It has since been home to hundreds of Tasmanian and overseas students in it's various incarnations as Hostel and School of Hospitality, before being magnificently restored as a family home.

Pet friendly

Small pets are suitable only for Wren cottage. There is a small fenced outside run and also the covered fully enclosed atrium area for sleeping and playing. Please advise type, size and number of pets when booking. There is a $20 pet stay fee.

We are experiencing the best hospitality ever. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Our hosts lovely people. This visit to Tasmania everything we could wish for. We arrived not knowing many local people now feel part of a large family. Thanks to our hosts.

It is easy to negotiate ourselves around as the cottage is well positioned for major roads and transport.

Can't wait to return.This three weeks have been heaven so peaceful but fun!

Comfort and Convenience

Loved our stay in Wren cottage - situated in the grounds and beautiful gardens of a grand century old mansion, a tiny yet a complete and private perfect haven for two, little kitchenette, bathroom equipped for disabled and very roomy, great huge comfy bed and so very quiet, with wonderful hospitable hosts, a brilliant deli/supermarket round the corner, easy walk to North Hobart and all its varied restaurants, the grand State theatre, and also an easy walk to downtown Hobart and Salamanca as well or the buses to get you there and back. We will make this our accommodation of choice when next in town.Enjoy!
