Rustic, rural Clayfield your homestead away from home

HISTORIC Clayfield Homestead is the perfect weekend getaway to help you switch off from the outside world, offering an authentic Tasmanian farm stay experience just a short drive from the familiar comforts of home.

Situated on a sustainable working farm in the homely hamlet of Bishopsbourne – only 20 minutes outside Launceston – Clayfield Homestead overlooks lush green paddocks and enjoys sweeping views of the picturesque Great Western Tiers.

Built in the 1820s, the original homestead boasts beautiful timber features, a classic wood fire and light-filled bedrooms.

Spread across two levels, the rustic country accommodation sleeps up to 21 guests comfortably, making it the ideal getaway for big groups looking for a true Tasmanian farm stay experience.

Fully self-contained, the property has all the homely comforts needed for one night or one week.

Whether you want to cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen, head out to a local eatery or take it easy and enjoy in-house catering, there is an option for every occasion.

Hosts Angela and Malcolm Cresswell offer an array of catering options including grazing platters, breakfast hampers and barbeque packages, all featuring locally sourced produce from the region.

Surrounded by beautiful English gardens and livestock, Clayfield is the perfect escape all year round: snuggle up by the fire in winter, wander the gardens in spring, sit on the deck with a Tasmanian wine in summer, or watch the leaves fall from the trees by the window in autumn.

Clayfield offers something for everyone, whether you want to kick back with a book in the clawfoot bath, play board games by the fire, watch the sun go down from the timber deck, or go and explore the local townships.

Nearby you can explore world-class mountain bike trails, wonderful walks, award-winning restaurants, antique stores, golf courses, wildlife sanctuaries, art galleries and local markets.

If you are looking for an idyllic retreat to take in some fresh air, wind down and re-connect with loved ones, Clayfield Homestead is perfect for you.

Angela and Malcolm would be delighted to welcome you. To find out more and make your booking today, visit clayfieldhomestead.com.au
