We stayed at the Racecourse Inn, primarily because of proximity to AgFest and we also wanted an historical B & B experience. This lovely B & B was an old coaching inn, kept true to character and with a wonderful history behind it, even a ghost! The rooms was gorgeous with a beautiful queen sized bed, antique furniture and heavy drapes and well appointed with an ensuite, TV and tea making facilities. Our hosts Richard and Annabel had only taken oven five weeks previously but have quickly developed a passion for the old house and the surrounding countryside. They are extremely hospitable, interesting conversationalists and good cooks. We opted to have dinner there as it was very reasonably priced. We relaxed on the comfy leather sofas in front of the fire with a drink and then dinner was served – silver service all the way. The next day we went to the Evandale markets which are only five minutes away and then explored Woolmers Estate which made a lovely day. We highly recommend the Racecourse Inn for a weekend or a week away. It is close to Launceston or a very easy drive from Hobart and there is plenty to do and see in the area.
