Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes Sitting on land that was once a convict-run vegetable garden in one of the oldest and quaintest areas of Hobart are three historical and National Trust-classified cottages, surrounded by lovingly tended gardens.
Originally serving as servant’s quarters, gardener’s house and coach house to the residence of a local wealthy timber merchant (who later became mayor), Corinda’s Cottages have been immaculately restored, delightfully decorated and today serve as three intimate and fully self-contained holiday homes. The property is also famously the second home of a local family of gorgeous fantail doves, who are often to be found in the cottage gutters and throughout the gardens.
Details // Glebe St, Hobart, Tas. From $195 per cottage per night.
