Details

The main bedrooms have new King-sized beds with electric blankets and quality bed linen and quilts. Quality towels and bath robes are supplied for the comfort of our guests.

A third guest can share accommodation in both the Chestnut Sunrise suite and the Walnut Tree-view suite in an attached open bedroom provided with a King single bed.

Elm House has been constructed in the grand old Victorian Gothic style befitting its historic location and superb grounds. Set on an acre and a half, Elm Wood is graced by 100-year old Elms, Oaks, Ashes, Walnuts, Lindens, a Sweet Chestnut, a rare Monkey Puzzle Tree and a magnificent Cedar. An orchard, berry garden and vegetable patch have recently been established.

Westbury is green year round, is more English than England with its hedgerows, deciduous trees and rich green pastures. It’s never too hot in summer (30 Celsius max) and you will be cosy and warm here during your winter stay (minimum -6 Celsius on frosty mornings).

Westbury is in the central north of the State and provides exceptional access over excellent roads to attractions to the north, south, east and west.

Your hosts, Gil and Diana Stokes, will help you plan your excursions using their local knowledge and understanding of the prevailing conditions.

Make Elm Wood your home base to explore Tasmania’s natural beauty (Cradle Mountain, North West Coast, limestone caves, Great Western Tiers, Launceston and the East Coast) - all within a 90 minute drive; visit Tamar Valley wineries - only 45 minutes away; sample the local cheeses, raspberry products, smoked salmon, honeys and chocolates - up to 40 minutes drive; or spend an hour or two or the whole day on one of 40 great walking tracks, many into World Heritage areas with trail heads only 20 to 60 minutes away.

The local village of Westbury was established in the 1820s when it was laid out to be the major northern centre of the State. It has many fine examples of early colonial church and residential architecture. At the History Room, Max Frost will entertain you with stories of the early settlement. A walking guide has recently been completed for those wishing to experience this cameo of early Australian colonial history.

Westbury boasts a number of eateries including fine dining at Hobnobs, wholesome meals at Fitzpatricks Inn and country kitchen meals at the Westbury hotel. Andy’s 24-hour cafe serves light meals.
