Farmstay Accommodation Brickendon
Brickendon’s heritage self contained farmstay accommodation is situated within Brickendon Estate. It’s located five minute’s drive from Longford and less than half an hour from Launceston, Tasmania. This rustic and romantic World Heritage site has six charming furnished cottages that each offer their own secluded space and unique view of the established 1800’s gardens and farm surrounds. The quiet country setting lends itself to a private getaway for two, or as a place for close family and friends to stay in the Longford and Northern Midlands area.
The cottage accommodation, wedding ceremony and reception spaces are within walking distance to each other making it a perfect way to spend time with your bridal party or guests the days before and after the wedding. Whilst you don’t have to hold your wedding ceremony or reception at Brickendon to book the cottages, there is a generous discount for for those booking as part of a wedding group. The self contained cottages accommodate varying guest numbers (between two and seven guests) but all include provisions for a continental breakfast, modern conveniences, and everything you could need to be cosy and comfortable. The occasional distant sounds of farm animals, and birds twittering in the near 200 year old trees are a calming and endearing addition to this very special, one-of-a-kind location.
The Coachmans (sleeping 6) and Gardeners (sleeping 2) Cottages are in close proximity to the original Georgian Brickendon homestead, amongst established and beautifully maintained gardens. Both built by convict labour in the early 1830’s, these have been restored and completed with everything you could need to settle into the countryside atmosphere. Antique furniture and accessories, open fireplaces, deep claw-foot baths – and complimentary Port – are some of the rare features found here. Being situated around 10 minute’s walk from the Farm Village over the road, these offer a superbly private and romantic setting.
The Old Farm (sleeping 5), Pumpkin (sleeping 4), Sweetcorn (sleeping 7) and Pea In A Pod (sleeping 2) Cottages are located on the Farm Village. With their views out to the rambling hedges that border the fields, and out over the mountains, these cottages have been traditionally designed using recycled materials and offer the same feeling of country warmth to their guests. Their close proximity to the Sussex barn means that the three larger cottages on this side of Brickendon are required to be booked with the reception venue (again with a discount on the normal rate). This is perfect farmstay accommodation option for a bridal party or travelling family for the days surrounding the wedding, as well as a convenient place to refresh before joining the wedding reception.
A family run Estate, Brickendon staff are more than happy to do what they can to accommodate their guests. The delightful farm atmosphere of Brickendon combined with the central location in the historical Longford region makes this a highly worthwhile option for those visiting the area.

“Stayed at the Gardener’s Cottage and enjoyed the privacy, and surrounding views and environment. Away from urban life and away from the reality, you’ll just get soaked into the quiet atmosphere in the cottage and in the estate area. Get in touch with the farm animals too. It’s just fun!”
