It was very clean and tidy and well set out. Loved the simple little touches that made it so homely, like flowers, lovely paintings, books to read. Simone was very helpful when I forgot something important. There wasn't anything we didn't like.

Charming characterful bnb

Pros: Quiet, beautiful gardens, lovely bathroom, easy parking and plunger coffee! The nightlight near bathroom door was very helpful.
Cons: The bed was a little firm for me......perhaps a problem due to much walking and climbing before we arrived!
Location: Historic beautiful buildings, wineries, Old Hobart Town, I think the wooden carved giftware products are the BEST I've seen anywhere!
Excellent BnB comfortable and very well appointed close to shops and restaurants and easy walking to see all the charm of Richmond. Such warm hospitality from Simone was much appreciated and we loved the large shower in the bathroom of the Retreat. Very quiet and love the books and games provided .....just fabulous.

Lovely place to stay walking distance to town

Pros: Everything!
Location: Walking distance to the centre of the village where there is many wonderful cafes to choose from and our visit to Zoodoo wildlife park was amazing!
Fantastic place to stay with lovely hosts. Accommodation was very clean and had a wonderful homely feel with everything you could possibly need for your stay. Very quiet location and only a very short walk to the center of the village where we found some wonderful cafes.
