“A truly wonderful house - you will never want to leave”
Reviewed 18 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here for five nights at the end of December 2012 with our 10 year old daughter. Peter & Melissa were the most wonderful generous hosts. Our time started with being greeted by the friendly dog and a tour of the house by Melissa. It really is better than the photos. The kitchen is well-equipped and the house is immaculately maintained and is very clean. The house is in a great location with lovely views to the rolling hills and close to Sheffield. The location is ideal for day trips. We based ourselves here and did day trips to Cradle Mountain, Burnie, Mole Creek and Deloraine. The house is ideal for groups with plenty of space to spread out. We highly recommend you stay here.

Hi Amanda,
Thanks for the great review, I didn't realise the gloves were finished, there is usually a box under the sink, I will put a new box in right now!
Thanks again.

“An amazing place - we'll be back!”

Kentisbury Country House is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed (in 20 years of travelling). The beautiful finishings and quality construction set this place apart from the rest.

In what feels like the middle of nowhere (but only a short trip to Cradle Mountain) is this beautiful property. The most difficult decision of the day is which sitting room to relax in.

Melissa's breakfast is the perfect way to start the day. And with a fully equipped kitchen and large dining area cooking is a pleasure.

With 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and internal laundry Kentisbury Country House is the perfect retreat for families, small groups or couples looking for a romantic getaway.

Melissa and Peter are the perfect hosts. We can't wait to return.
