About the property

Built in 1837, this quaint cottage has been lovingly renovated throughout. It is light and bright, warm and cosy. We have WiFi (NBN), smart tv, espresso coffee, T2 teas, washing machine, dryer and clothes line, dishwasher, bbq and a fully appointed kitchen.

As a guest, you have access to the entire ground floor plus the meandering hidden garden.

Hobart is walkable from here. Historic Battery Point 5 mins away, with Salamanca, the Mona ferry, restaurants, bars and galleries less than 15 mins walk away. Sandy Bay shops, banks, supermarkets are 5 mins. The beautiful treelined Hobart Rivulet track starts 5 mins away and winds its way up to the Cascade Brewery. For the more adventurous, this leads to a myriad of walking tracks all over Mt Wellington. Please let us know your interests, so that we can help make your stay a memorable one.

Parking is available in the street directly in front of the house.

For those travelling without a car, the Airporter Bus stops at the top of the street.

Other Things to Note

One bedroom has a queen sized bed, while the other has a king sized bed. The king can be divided into 2 king single beds for children or multiple guests.

Fold out beds are available upon request for additional children.

We live very nearby, and will meet you to let you in. We are more than happy to share our local knowledge of Hobart and the rest of Tasmania, from places to eat to must see highlights to suit your interests.

I stayed here with my Mum for 2 nights when Hobart had severe rain and floods. This house was perfectly cozy and dry. It's a lovely place and very comfortable, you can tell it's furnished/decorated by 2 talented artists. There's a beautiful outlook over a garden out the back. On arrival we were given a warm welcome by Peter and his grandson. I recommend this place for a couple, a good location if you don't mind a little walking or a short Uber or taxi trip. I would stay here again.

This really is a delight. Great quiet location, modern light interior with quality and style in the fine details. Spotlessly clean, delicious breakfast items and an inviting garden. Peter is communicative and extremely helpful. This was a pleasure.

We spent 3 nights at 1837 Cottage, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Peter & Belinda have created warm inviting space that leaves you wanting for nothing. The cottage is well appointed and filled with a fantastic collection of books and artwork. We will definitely be coming back, warm. Comfy and centrally located, we could not have been happier! Thanks again Peter & Belinda for sharing your beautiful home.
