Olive's has an airy, uplifting feel set in serene gardens and lawns, with an outlook to the beautiful Tamar River. Just 15 minutes north of Launceston, it is an ideal rural base to explore the food and wine in the northern region of Tasmania.

The space

Olive's Cottage is a former family property. We wanted to keep the property in the family, as it is in such a wonderful spot, with so many fond memories. We use it for family get-togethers. Sharing it with other people from around Australia and the world via a self-contained cottage/B&B seemed a logical step.

Since it opened in 2004, many hundreds of guests have provided wonderful feedback about their stays at Olive's, including statements such as 'the views are some of the best in the world'. And they comment on the peace and quiet, the ambience inside the cottage and the professional attention of the owners and manager. Our gardener keeps the gardens and lawns in meticulous condition.

Guest access

Olive's Cottage is a truly boutique property. Guests have sole occupancy of the one acre property. There is off-street parking.

It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (including ensuite in main bedroom). There is a king size bed in the main bedroom and a queen size bed in the second bedroom. All linen is provided along with basic essentials, a first-day breakfast starter, coffee pods, etc. Maximum occupancy is four persons.

Our Manager lives not far away. The Welcome Sheet and confirmation email provide contact details.

We enjoyed our stay at Olives cottage, especially the view from the back porch towards the Tamar river. The house is comfy warm and bright. Beds are wonderful and we slept well. Thank you for the wine and the provisions picked up at the local store. We chose the perfect place to relax and be at peace. To come back to this house after the long drives, sit on the back porch and have a glass of wine, overlooking the Tamar River, so enjoyable. Loved listening to the birds. We recommend this house for a relaxing break, it has everything that you need.

The cottage is fantastically located within a short drive to Launceston and touring the Tamar Valley. The view from the moment you walk in the front door is amazing. Beds are comfy, kitchen well equipped and everything about staying here was just easy. Highly recommend Moore's Hill Estate winery just across the bridge and Green's beach for a swim.

We had an amazing stay at the Olive Cottage. Gorgeous view in the peaceful countryside outside Launceston. Lots of light and comfy beds. The backyard had a huge loan. Highly recommend!

An amazing cottage which lived up to all the pictures and description given. The breakfast provisions were a great beginning to our stay. The rooms were spacious, exceptionally clean and tidy. Kitchen was well stocked with all we need to cook with. Loved the birds and wildlife day and night. Close enough to Launceston to keep us and our daughter occupied. We will return!

Robin and I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. After university I worked mainly in planning and the environment fields for the Victorian public service. Robin lectured in statistics at Deakin University. We visit Olive's Cottage often, to catch up with our manager and gardener and with the many family members and friends living in the Launceston-Tamar area.
