Honestly, I can't recommend The Chookshed enough. It was way better than expected. Welcomed by the lovely James and Margaret along with their adorable dog Gus. Such friendly, accomodating hosts. The place itself is perfectly positioned for visiting Hobart and the surrounding area without the craziness of the city itself. Amazing views, spotlessly clean, everything you could need. I cannot wait to go back! Thank you for such a great stay, hopefully next time it will be for longer! Jade & Dale

We loved staying at the Chookshed. Margaret and James have thought of everything a traveller might need. It was meticulously clean. Would recommend without hesitation. So much better than staying in a motel. The photos dont do it justice.

This is the perfect location for people looking at a farm stay. It is quiet and relaxing, yet close to beaches, shops and Hobart. The hosts are friendly and easy going. The chookshed is perfect with averything you need for cooking, washing etc. it was very clean and the bed was to die for. You will also get to meet some sheep, rabbits and Gus the dog. This was our favourite place to stay out of all places around Tassie. Great job James and Margret! Regards Jason, Miranda and Piper

The Chookshed was perfect for our needs and the hosts could not have been nicer in every way. We also really enjoyed picking fresh fruit and veg from their garden. The place is very comfortable and already looking forward to our next visit.

Thanks for the tip, a toaster oven is priority in the shopping list for next week and the storage containers also, really first class advise and we appreciate it. Kind regards, Margaret & James.

We really loved our stay at the Chookshed. The view from the veranda is amazing. The bed is so cozy and Jim was so hospitable and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. We didnt realise we were too far to get any food delivered do Jim cooked us up a fishermans basket for a reasonable price! The animals all around the property are so great! We really enjoyed our stay
