My lovelies, I hope that you had a most lovely weekend. We headed away for a little trip - part business, part holiday. The business part of our trip was supposed to send us to Wellington New Zealand, but a late night phone call the day before our departure saw some quick speedy changes and we headed down to Hobart in Tasmania instead.
Having never ventured this far south in Australia before I was excited to experience some real Tasmanian history so we stayed at the gorgeous 1820's Cleburne Homestead. We stayed in The Bakehouse which is a magnificent old stone barn building which features the original baker’s fireplace and oven in which the bread for the whole estate was made. With the most stunning exposed stonework, original artworks by Irene Barberis, and big deep two person bath and fabulous breakfast - it was simply the most lovely little trip and we highly recommend Cleburne should you ever be down chilly Hobart way!
