Never a truer rag to riches story than was the life of convict Robert Logan who was instrumental in transforming the seaman’s village of Battery Point into one of Hobart’s most prestigious and sort after suburbs. Berwick Cottage (originally the family home for Robert and his wife Sophia) and Studio are both well-appointed and centrally based for you to enjoy with family and friends, as you immerse yourself in the area’s historical past and enjoy the thriving Hobart city and waterfront.
With 3 bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom in the main cottage, and one bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette in the Studio, you won’t find a better inner-city stay when traveling in a larger group. Berwick Cottage is a gorgeous Victorian Georgian cottage, named after the English town of Berwick-Upon-Tweed where a young delinquent Robert Logan was sentenced to transportation to Van Dieman’s Land in 1829.
Whilst still retaining its original facade, inside the cottage you will find a light and bright interior. With a large well-equipped kitchen adjoined by a dining area comfortably seating all guests. A separate living area is cosy space where you can relax, unwind and enjoy the smart TV with access to fast unlimited WiFi. Chromecast is available for streaming from your own device.
Three comfortably furnished and spacious bedrooms provide private spaces for you and your family or friends. Two of the bedrooms located at the front of the cottage have queen-size beds and the third is furnished with two single beds.
With a completely separate entrance, the Studio is an open plan studio space with a queen-size bed, kitchenette, and separate bathroom and laundry perfect for a couple or single guest.
Two off-street car-parking spaces are available and this is very rare in Battery Point and certainly a great amenity for guests.
Within walking distance are numerous attractions. Start your day with a coffee and breakfast only metres away at the renowned Jackman & McRoss Bakery, or venture 5 minutes further down the road into tree-lined Salamanca Place to explore the restaurants, gift shops, or Tasmanian’s most visited attraction the Salamanca Market which takes place every Saturday.
If you are in Hobart for one of the major festivals such as Taste of Tasmania, Mona Foma, or Dark Mofo, Berwick House is the perfect place to base yourself. Hampden Road restaurants and eateries are just moments away. Salamanca Place, parks, and the joys of the busy waterfront with the MONA ferry are all a 5-10 minute stroll from the cottage. The entire cottage and studio are available to you for your group’s sole enjoyment during our stay.
We are available by phone from 8 am to 8 pm if you have any questions during your stay. We would love it if you could message us when you have arrived safely and also a message on leaving is appreciated so we can clean as early as possible for our next guests.
As I am not in the area I am unable to personally check the house before your arrival – I am heavily reliant on my housekeeper and I need to know as soon as possible if you and therefore me have been let down in any way by the presentation or amenities of the Berwick Cottage and Studio. So please please let me know as soon as you can if there are any issues at all so I have a chance to take the appropriate action to ensure your stay is it should be – totally stress-free and relaxing!!
