Hi, my name is Grada and I extend a warm welcome to you from the picturesque village of Forth (population 700) in NW Tasmania. Pete and I want to share our piece of paradise with you. Whether you stay in our a-Maze-ing Cottage, or in The Manse Apartment, take the opportunity to roam the gardens, lose yourself in our mazes, and find yourself by walking the labyrinths. You can totally recharge your batteries resting under a tree in our deciduous forest or sit at the Forth Riverbank, dipping your toes in the pristine mountain water for a chilled out feeling. At the end of the day, the cottage is there to welcome you back with open arms (and a vino!) Oh, and if you hear any distant noises, they might be from our 15 grandchildren who love to visit us, or from Cedric, the donkey, Clover our cow, or perhaps it's the cheeky ducks! There is so much to do and see in this wonderful neck of the woods, but at the end of the day, if you feel like escaping from it all, you are in the right place. It is so peaceful here and I really hope that you will feel totally at home here! Much love, Grada
