Steve and Shae welcomed us on arrival. Offered a fire pit which was great on the cold nights. Got a friendly welcome from the cows and got to feed Kevin and Bevan, the farm goats. Easily accessible to Cradle Mountain and all the touristy stuff in the area.

Spent 4 nights @thefarm cradle, a beautiful peaceful location with friendly cows, farm animals and scenic mountain views. Shay and Steve are the best hosts, made us very welcome and happy to share information on what to see in the area including recommendations for the rest of our trip. Thank you Shay and Steve for a wonderful start to our Tassy adventure. Margaret and Gil.

This was a beautiful campground! Great open space next to a paddock of baby calves. Steve was very lovely and made sure everything was to our liking. The sunset was incredible. Close to the town centre.

Easy and simple! We drove from Hobart and stayed here before a quick drive to Cradle Mountain the next morning. Saw an eastern quoll right outside camp. Great memories!

We've stayed at many farm stays on our travels and this is up there with the best of them!

Magnificent property, lush grassy sites, plenty of sun to charge the solar panels with communal fire pit and firewood provided.

Steve & Shae are wonderful hosts, always up for a chat and go out of their way to make sure your stay is a fantastic one. Our 8yr old daughter loved feeding the animals including the chickens and goats & patting the baby cows. We had some car issues and they even offered to drive us into Sheffield in their car to get supplies!

Great location not far from Sheffield and close enough to Cradle Mountain for day trips. At $10pn, fantastic value.

Peaceful with a beautiful rural outlook. Perfectly situated if the reason for travel is for rowing at Lake Barrington (or just because)!!

Highly recommended this camp site. Close to cradle mountain and a beautiful quiet spot. Grassy relatively flat sites. Steve (the farmer introduced himself and was very friendly. We bought beautiful fresh eggs from him and they were the best. There is a communal fire there that we didn’t use but would have if we hadn’t walked cradle mountain that day. 🥱
