The old Stables/Carriage Shed 1846 behind our main house was classified on the National Heritage Register as a ruin. We thought there was enough of the sandstone walls left to do something with so we proceeded to turn it into overnight accommodation
We already have an old colonial accommodation apartment at the side of our main house (Christopher Hall's Colonial) which is a listed convict built sandstone building so thought we would make The Stables more modern (eclectic). It has everything you could require for an overnight stay or longer. Ross is well situated between Hobart and Launceston and is also within 1 hr of the east coast and the ranges.
Accès des voyageurs
As the Stables are at the back of our main house, guests can drive their vehicles right to the door of their accommodation. They have access to our back garden and some guests are fascinated with our 15 chooks. Our neighbours at the back usually have lambs or grown sheep in the back paddock and there is usually a horse in the other paddock. As we are in the main street of Ross everything is within walking distance.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We usually welcome guests when they arrive and are available if they wish to ask any questions about the area. Mostly guests like to do their own thing and we do not wish to intrude on their privacy.
A visit to the Wool Centre is worthwhile and what is left of the Women's Prison is very interesting if you walk around the grounds and read the story.
The old Ross Bridge is very beautiful and a walk along the riverbank in front of the Caravan Park can be restful and peaceful. Just to stand at the end of the main Church Street and admire the majestic elms gives a person a sense of the past and what it would have been in Ross many years ago.
We have had no adverse problems with any of our many guests.

We are an older couple semi retired and find running two accommodation places in Ross in Tasmania keeps us very busy.
In past years we have travelled to many parts of the world but find lately we are just too busy to even think about an overseas trip.
Our little poodle dog Charlie is also a joy to us but keeps us on our toes.
