“Chris and Kaye made us feel so welcome. There were fresh flowers in the house and delicious eggs from their chickens as well as other breakfast goodies waiting for us. We loved the rustic old Oast House with its open quirky rooms, high ceilings, cosy beds and old fireplaces. We felt comfortable and relaxed from the moment we arrived. We would recommend Chris and Kaye's hospitality, their home and the area to those who want to experience something a little different from their visit to Tasmania.”

“We had a great few days in New Norfolk. A lovely spot just outside of Hobart. Lovely and quiet but close enough to head into Hobart and explore the city and surrounding areas. Highly recommend!”
“WOW! Such a great place to stay. Was an easy drive from downtown Hobart up the Derwent River road to a stunning location and property. The welcome warm and the facilities were just perfect. Little touches like milk in the fridge, chocolates added to an overall fantastic break. Hobart put it on with glorious weather, the city pumped over the New Year period and we could then go back to the peaceful and tranquil home of Chris and Kayes at the end of each day. The property itself is very interesting. Chris and Kaye have created a wonderful home and business from historic hops drying house. Everything one needs to have a relaxing holiday. 5 minutes up the hill is New Norfolk town centre with amenities from supermarket, cafes, antique stores to restaurants and takeaways. Centrally located for exploring further afield we ran out of time after 8 days... we will just have to go back! Chris and Kaye were fantastic hosts. They were next door, and completely discreet. Only when we actively engaged with them did they respond and share their valuable time and advice with us on local interests (local knowledge) etc. We could have easily ignored them... i.e. complete flexibility depending on what sort of holiday you want. ”
“We loved our stay at the Oast House. It is a very interesting property, an original Victorian oast house which has been given a new lease of life by Chris and Kay. Chris's woodworking skills are amazing, Kay has an eye for decor and together they've made a beautiful home. It is located in a park beside the river Derwent, and the deck looks out at the awesome sandstone cliffs beside the river. There are lovely walks from the house, and the shops of New Norfolk are close by. The Derwent Valley vineyard is down the road and has some great wines! Hobart is about half an hour away, an enjoyable scenic drive, and beautiful Mount Field national park a similar distance. Kay and Chris are wonderful, kind and generous hosts, always friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.”
“We had a lovely 9 day holiday at the Oasthouse which was a real experience in the history of New Norfolk. It was located in the countryside out of Hobart within easy driving to Mona and The Agrarian Kitchen cooking school amongst other attractions. Our hosts Chris and Kaye could not have been more welcoming and felt like old friends. We would love to visit again in the future. Thankyou for a wonderful stay in your unique property.”
