Less than 15 minutes from The Agrarian Kitchen Cooking School and Farm, Stanton Bed and Breakfast is one of those special country bed and breakfasts. Firstly, it’s a gorgeous old Georgian homestead, and has been beautifully restored and decorated by Lisa West.
Three rooms are available, and guests are free to explore the 16 acres of paddocks, orchards, gardens, ponds and the winter creek. Stanton has got a rich history, which includes a run-in with a notorious Tasmanian bushranger, and every beautiful brick used in construction was handmade on the property 200 years ago.
The hospitality is first-class and, as I’m told by our guests who stay there, Lisa’s breakfasts are second to none! We also sell some of her hand-crafted tableware through The Agrarian Kitchen store.

If you’re looking to head back in to Hobart, I would recommend MACq01: the city’s newest luxury hotel.
Located on Macquarie Wharf (hence the name), it occupies the majority of what was once a market, latter a shipping shed, and now a newly built replica building with design enhancements. The hotels position on the waterfront, apart from being really central, offers the best views out over the Derwent.
MACq01 is also unique as it’s a storytelling hotel, allowing guests to tap into the history of Hobart, and make people feel a part of all that has come before, rather than just being a place to stay.
There’s 114 rooms and the Old Wharf Restaurant,,which chronicles Tasmania’s early industrial pioneers of mining, whaling, fishing, boat building and farming, to the backdrop of passing boats!
