Nice views and a good little spot. Steve showed the kids around the farm to feed the animals. Highly recommend. Cheers

Serenity pure
We came across this Farm Camp in the Cradle Mountains by accident. As always the unplaned turned out to be superb. We were the only ones camping there for the night as it was midweek and in the low season. We enjoyed Steve checking in to make sure everything was alright. He stayed for a good yarn, until his cows (feeding in the paddock next to us) called out to him 😁 The sunset was beautiful, the rolling hills pastures absolutely enjoyable. We will be back next time we go to Cradle Mountains.

Great Setup and Welcome
The shared paddock at The Farm Cradle Country was everything we had imagined for our caravan stay in the area. A great welcome from Steve and the boys (cattle) with ideas of places other than Cradle Mountain to visit provided. A shelter and communal fire pit is available, and though we didn't use them on this occasion, they would be useful at other times. Very quiet and peaceful, and a great central location. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will be back.

The Best Farm Stay
One of our favourite spots to stay while traveling around Tasmania. Steve was kind enough to walk us around their beautiful property and allow our kids to feed their animals. The camp area was kept immaculate and we loved every minute of our stay at Cradle Country.

The Farm Cradle Camp Ground
We loved our stay at The Farm! Stunning countryside and scenery. Cradle Mountain was only a short drive away. The communal fire pit with wood provided was great and had the bonus of a black possum coming down to join us every night. The hosts are super friendly and allowed our daughter to visit the farm animals which she was very excited about. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Relaxing farm location
We loved our time here during the March long weekend. It's so central to every where such as Sheffield, Tazmazia and plenty of other attractions around. Farmer Steve was great and took us on a tour of his farm which our kids love. Caravan spots are nice and grassy and well cared for, with a small shelter with fire pit near by. Will be back.
