This mini house was our trial run in building our main home using passive house principles. We are approx 1 km from the centre of Westbury. The cottage is suitable for a couple, however the extra single bed does enable some flexibility for guests. We charge $20.00 for use of the extra bed. (i.e. f you wish to use both beds, the site requires you to book for 3 people.)
Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations.

El alojamiento
We have been interested in sustainable architecture and design since the 70s and have finally managed to realise our vision of creating an ecologically friendly homestead, using double glazed windows and
a German-designed breathable membrane with ducted air system in the walls and ceiling of the buildings to maximise thermal efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint. The cottage has long and short garden vistas from every window. The structure of the 6 acre (2.5 hectare) garden commenced after 2015 and is continually progressing. Over 600 trees have been planted ( maples being a favourite!) hedges placed to create sections, sculpture placed for impact, small fruit section, espalier fruit trees, walled garden to extend growing season, labyrinth and the dam is now attracting water birds. Our wet areas are now a great frog habitat and growing shrubs are drawing small birds.
The garden peaks in November, but there is something to see in every season. The number of deciduous trees planted has resulted in an impressive autumn display and the summer house is a pleasant place to catch the breeze on a hot afternoon. Guests are welcome to share the garden and enjoy the increasing wild life.

Dónde vas a estar

Westbury, Tasmania, Australia

The quaint little village of Westbury, centrally located in the Northern Tasmania, is the perfect base from which to explore Launceston, Devonport, the Tamar wineries, Cradle Mountain, the Mole Creek Caves, the Northwest, and, of course our local attractions.
•Nestled under the Great Western Tiers, Westbury is a classic Georgian village, surrounded by hedgerows and bursting with old English charm. It was established in the 1820's as a garrison town, and many of these buildings are still in evidence. Today Westbury is a classified historic town with plenty of attractions and charm.
These include:
•The stately Fitzpatrick’s Inn with its quaint little bar.
•The picturesque English style Village Green.
•The Westbury Maze and Cafe, a traditional hedge maze with over 1 km of pathways.
• Pearn's Steam World, a collection of over 200 examples of historic agricultural machinery. Houses one of the largest collections of working steam engines in the world.
•John Temple's Gallery where you will find quality photographs from all over Tasmania.
•1840s White House Bakery at the southern end of the Village green.
•Anglican Church where there are 13 examples of Nellie Payne’s wood carvings.
•A short drive to Carrick where you will find the Copper Art Gallery.

Westbury is a 25-min drive (34 km) west of Launceston and 45 min drive to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry sailing from Devonport.

Ian and I are retired teachers and this property is our retirement "project"! We were looking for 1 acre, north facing, gentle slope, close to amenities etc (and I had "bicycle ride to a cappachino" on my list as well. ) Long story, but the block of 12 acres found us! We built in stages: shed, workshop, garage, somewhere to live while we built the main house, landscaping, tree planting, walled garden, summer house, labyrinth and have started my "she cave" recently. The main house is nearly finished , however the whole project is still a work in progress. We are still teaching and sharing information with others who want to reduce their heating costs, grow their own food and leave a smaller footprint on our planet. Life is pretty full and we feel blessed to have this opportunity to share our lifestyle with others.
