Your home away from home in Tasmania's historic heart, Longford - Northern Midlands.


The House

Architecturally built in 2013, The Wellington is the realisation of Bev and Glen Howard's dream conceived 10 years earlier on their rural property Hyde Park, where they wanted to share good old-fashioned hospitality with visitors from across the globe in their retirement.

Keen travellers themselves, Bev and Glen know what it takes to make  guests feel at home on the road and The Wellington and surrounding house and grounds is perfectly appointed to ensure your stay is not only comfortable but memorable.

'It's the little things that go a long way' says Bev, who has spared no expense on making sure each room is appointed and styled to it's best. This also extends to the surrounding grounds where guests can enjoy a relaxing swim in the heated pool, or simply enjoy a wine on their private terrace whilst watching the sun set over the distant mountain ranges.
