Taras is such a treat. A lovely welcome from Kim and Sharon, cosy comfortable units and such a great spot. We all loved the friendly chooks that kept us entertained with their antics and the few minutes walk down to the river. The walking farm tour ( extra fee but absolutely worthwhile and a highlight) with Sharon to feed the animals was fun and so entertaining. She is passionate about their rescue animals and a great storyteller. Brekkie was delivered to our door by Kim with fresh baked bread, chook eggs, juice, cereal, yoghurt, fruit and ground coffee. Teen and tween both loved it and wanted to stay longer. Equipped with children’s books and toy box for little people too.

Sharon and Kim are such wonderful hosts, they made us feel at home with their hospitality and were incredibly welcoming to their farm. Comfortable accomodation, great breakfast basket with freshly laid eggs, baked bread and jams. Also did a tour around the farm feeding animals in the morning, it was lovely meeting all of their animals around the farm and Sharon's affection towards her animals are so inspiring and full of love. Don't hesitate to check them out !

Stayed 3 nights late Dec 2020. Had a great time with our 3 kids (10,12,14). Very friendly hosts who love their animals. Family cottages are fresh, clean and new. Breakfast is fantastic. Richmond is a quaint little town with lots of history. Easy access to Hobart too! Glad we stayed here for the Hobart stop of our road trip!

We stayed two nights here with our two young children, we highly recommend it! The hosts, Kim & Sharon were extremely welcoming and friendly! The breakfast baskets delivered each morning are a real treat with fresh made warm bread, eggs, fruit, cereal and beautiful homemade jams. The animals are all wonderful and have the best names! Well worth a visit and is a great base for exploring the Richmond area & surrounds.

We enjoyed staying at Tara’s Richmond Farmstay and used it as a base to explore Richmond, Hobart and then to catch our flight home from the Hobart Airport. The breakfast each morning was amazing and included homemade bread and jam. Our children, 3 and 1, enjoyed watching the chickens out the sliding door in the morning and going to visit the rabbits and horses. The cottage also had a basket of toys which has great for out little ones. They also provided a portacot free of charge for our infant. The cottage is very modern and had plenty of space for us. Great to have a washing machine in it as well. I would highly recommend staying here if visiting the Hobart/Richmond area with young children.
