This is one the better and most beautiful B&Bs I have ever been to. The service from our hosts was wonderful. The B&B is a beautiful old house on a bay called castle forbes bay in Huon Valley. It is such a pretty area, and the B&B's gardens were something else. Just very, very pretty, and lots of cute wildlife around - we saw a cute potteroo in the garden, (which to the locals is like rabbits on the mainland). The hosts are very versatile, we thought we would be arriving quite late, and they offered to still give us afternoon tea as a supper instead, but at very late notice, we changed our plans and arrived when we were meant to check in and were served afternoon tea promptly, which by the way was absolutely delicious. Yummy homemade fruit cake and tim tams. Our host was very informative about dinner options around and in nearby towns. Franklin's Lady Franklin Hotel a great restaurant and very yummy meals. The B&B is a large house and we stayed in a spa suite. Absolutely everything needed is provided in the bathroom from a shaver down to make up remover. The spa was lovely, and the electric blanket even lovelier! So relaxing. Had best sleep I've had in a while, what a pity we were only here one night. The next morning the breakfast we had was definitely a country hearty breakfast, and it doesn't need to be bacon and eggs to be hearty. There was cereal, home made bread, croissants, fruit, and home made muffins, oh and the best coffee. I cant say enough about how nice this place is, so very homely and cozy. Thank you to our hosts, you were wonderful.
