  • The Cob Barn follows the Covid-safe guidelines of the Tasmanain government. Guests have The Cob Barn all to themselves and only interact with their hosts if they need to.

Set on the edge of 40 acres of temperate rainforest on the northern slopes of Mt Arthur high above the village of Lilydale, just 25 minutes drive from Launceston, The Cob Barn is a unique, hand-sculpted timber and earth barn that has been transformed into a cosy and welcoming couples’ retreat.   Nestled beside a large pond this secluded setting is an ideal place to get away from it all and simply unwind. For the nature lovers, there is a walking track through the forest where you can wander beneath giant manferns, Blackwoods, Sassafras, Mountain Ash, Dogwood and Musk. Or soak away your cares in a steamy hot outdoor bath hidden behind a spiral cob wall and then relax round the fire pit at night under a starry sky. Inside the Cob Barn guests can enjoy the warmth of a delightful wood fire and can relax with a selection of DVDs, books, games and music. The kitchen is well equipped for meal preparation, with hot plates, oven and an espresso coffee machine. Guests are provided with delicious breakfast provisions including free range eggs from our chickens, a cob loaf (of course), berry/oat Granola, yoghurt and more. Bathrobes and electric blankets are provided.
