Mulberry Cottage B&B Richmond
Multi award winning project. History show included in the tariff. Mulberry Cottage was built in 2002 as an “olde worlde” private residence at the rear of Grannie Rhodes' Cottage, 1830, in the historic Georgian village of Richmond. The old cottage had proved to be too much of a challenge to restore and renovate for habitation. Initially it was planned to use it for a museum. The new home is constructed from the reclaimed wall of Hobart's Old Penitentiary, windows from Hobart's old Marine Board building and other reclaimed materials, so when you stay, you sleep behind the walls of the old prison! Gardens are being designed to create a rustic English country atmosphere and the visitor is often tricked into believing that the house truly is 1800's. Tha old cottage is now the theatre. Mulberry Cottage B&B is traditional hosted accommodation. Miriam, your hostess, lives on site.
