Rafo Farm is not just about the accomodation which is incredible, its the whole experience from the time you step out of your vehicle and meet the owner.

It was different to eat with the other guests and have our host Greg read historical stories throughout the evening.

Great country location with a wonderful host. Our room was clean and over looked a breathtaking rural setting with river and surrounding fields. Very relaxing stay.

Bothwell is well situated for visits to other centres in the Tasmanian Midlands, such as Ross or Oatlands, and about one hour from Hobart. Ratho Farm offers the oldest golf course in the Southern Hemisphere and an attractive dining room in which to enjoy breakfast as well as a spacious conservatory in which to enjoy dinner with friends or fellow guests. Each of the meals is of a high quality. Alternatively, guests may choose to have a "pub meal" at the Bothwell hotel where some wine is available at bottle shop prices. The accommodation, often in heritage buildings, includes a spacious bedroom and large bathroom which includes underfloor heating - blissful on a cooler morning. Bothwell is a short walk away and includes many interesting sandstone buildings whilst the hotel was originally constructed in 1829. That is, Ratho Farm is located in uninteresting environment and provides promise of a relaxing sleep in a quiet picturesque environment whilst lying on a very good quality bed. Often acting as mein host is Mike a young, engaging and very helpful individual.
