Boutique bed and breakfast accommodation
in a luxury heritage setting.
You'll enjoy a rare privilege when you stay in the elegant 9-square guest wing of this unique homestead on one of Australia's finest and earliest country estates.
Panshanger Estate is set on the banks of the Lake River, located near the town of Longford and Tasmania’s historical Heritage Highway. Declared “one of Australia’s most elegant houses” by Country Style Magazine, this idyllic rural retreat provides a perfect atmosphere to relax and recharge. Explore historical buildings, stroll through breathtaking English gardens and riverside woodlands, or take advantage of unrivalled access to kilometres of top fly fishing.
It’s an unforgettable opportunity to experience the grandeur of Tasmania’s heritage firsthand.
Fly your own plane to this grand old 2400-hectare estate. Or take the private road which winds through fields of wheat, sheep, cattle and poppies, before giving way to a hedge-lined drive leading up to the entrance of the stately sandstone homestead. Here you’ll meet your friendly hosts who have opened a wing of their historic home to guests.
Once a children’s nursery, the spacious apartment is fully equipped and self-contained for a very comfortable stay. Totally private, it features a well-appointed kitchen, large double bedroom with queen size bed, cosy single bedroom, and bathroom with separate bath and shower. It also boasts its own sitting room, where you can curl up beside the gas fire and experience the ambience of a bygone era.
The house, built over a period of ten years and completed in 1835, is classified by the National Trust and listed on the National Estate. It has been owned by your hosts’ family for the past 100 years.
Explore the extensive and breathtaking parks and gardens of Panshanger Estate. Stroll through the English gardens and riverside woodlands of silver birch, elm, pine, oak and laurel.
Fish for trout in the pristine waters of the Lake River, which runs around the property. The surrounding region also has some of the best fly fishing spots in Tasmania, with the Macquarie River, North Esk River, South Esk River, and Brumby’s Creek all nearby.

Play tennis on your own full-sized court, or enjoy a round of golf at one of a number of excellent golf courses nearby.
Swim in the crystal clear Lake River, if you can brave the icy waters!
