Brockley Estate is beautifully situated on a 10,000 acre private estate, and is conveniently placed to access attractions on the East Coast, Freycinet, The Midlands and Tasman Peninsula. Brockley Estate offers five bedrooms, and each of the rooms are unique and have their own character. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with period antiques and furnishings.

All downstairs rooms and bedrooms have open fires. Enjoy a unique experience and share a table of authentic Spanish cuisine. There is an beautiful huon-pine original farm kitchen available. Brockley Estate was built in 1840 on the convict-built coach road to Orford. Now disused, guests can explore any part of the road that runs beside the River Prosser to Paradise Gorge. Maria island National Park and local vineyards are close by. Out of earshot of any traffic, you are surrounded by pure air, beautiful scenery and native animals. Buckland is a 51 minute drive (61 kilometre / 38 mile) drive North-East of Hobart.
The Marble Bedchamber is also located on the ground floor with French doors opening onto the verandah and a beautiful view of the south garden. The en suite has a lovely shower with a head the size of your dinner plate. Enjoy the antique furniture and fine prints that decorate the room. The name comes from the original marbled cedar chimney-piece – not, perhaps, the place to put your wine glass down whilst you dress for dinner!
