Sanda House is built from local field stone and sandstone and is part of Tasmania’s history.
Four bedrooms have been set aside for colonial accommodation, with all the comforts and, in the morning, a hearty continental breakfast.
After breakfast you can take a stroll via the forest walk which follows the creek down to the beach. Take your binoculars and meet the native birds!
The Rose Bedroom is the old kitchen, which has been dated from 1825, and one can almost feel the presence of all the people who have lived and worked in that room over all that time. An extra adult can be accommodated in this room.
