Acton Cottage

Monday, June 5, 2000
Acton Cottage is just for couples; in fact just one couple at a time. This cosy haven combines today's conveniences with colonial charm.

Margaret could see beyond the mess the 1829 house was in, and had visions of restoring it to its former beauty. Five years ago, she lovingly set about the restoration, and now has one of the most romantic cottages in Tasmania.

Acton Cottage is just for couples — one couple at a time — and this spacious but cosy haven combines today's conveniences with the charm of colonial days.

The cottage is furnished with antiques, has an open fire and underfloor heating, and a country-style bedroom that overlooks a very private courtyard. From the side of the house, you have views of Seven Mile Beach.

The kitchen holds everything you could want, and provisions for a hearty breakfast are ready and waiting for you to enjoy — maybe after a stroll to acquaint yourself with the property's miniature horses.

This b&b is a member of Cottages of the Colony, a group with charming b&bs sprinkled all over Tasmania. To be a member, each property must have, and maintain, a very high standard.


Acton is 20 minutes from Hobart.


Acton Cottage rates start from $160 per couple per night, including breakfast provisions.
