The Old Farm is a unique 100 acre property located at Safety Cove on the Tasman Peninsula, near Port Arthur.
Accessed by a private gravel driveway where guests will see the cattle quietly grazing the paddocks, the sheltered central courtyard is revealed. The Old Farm courtyard features established pines, rustic timber outbuildings, the original farm house and a wide expanse of green lawn. The courtyard is bordered by the colonial era, clay brick and sandstone walls and the main barn, which dates back to the mid 1800’s.
While the courtyard provides shelter, there are view windows through to the surrounding farm land and eucalyptus trees.
The barn features a 210 square metre polished Tas Oak floor, and high ceilings with exposed original timber beams. The internal walls bare the colonial clay bricks, with a unique display of rustic texture and soft colour.
The property is set back from the beach at Safety Cove which enjoys views of the wild and rugged coastline, including the renowned Tasman Island, a spectacular spot for photos. If you listen carefully, you can hear the waves crashing from The Old Farm’s courtyard.
