Panshanger Estate provides boutique bed and breakfast accommodation near Longford in northern Tasmania.
Fly your own plane to this grand old 2400 hectare estate’s private airstrip, or drive down a private road with sheep, wheat, cattle and poppies giving way to a tree-lined drive to the entrance of this historically unique sandstone homestead. Once a children’s nursery, the spacious apartment is self-contained and totally private. It has a fully equipped kitchen, large double bedroom with queen-sized bed, a single bedroom, and a separate bath and shower. Relax in your private sitting room beside a gas fire and experience the ambience of a bygone era. The house, built around 1835, is classified by the National Trust and listed on the National Estate and has been owned by your host’s family for the past 100 years.
After a peaceful night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, stroll through the extensive English gardens and beautiful woods, play tennis, fish for trout in the Lake River on the property or just relax under a shady tree and enjoy Panshanger’s history. In season, you can sample fruit from the orchards and huge berry patches.
Panshanger is approximately a 20-minute drive from the Launceston Airport.
