Glencoe Country Bed & Breakfast is located in the heart of the Cradle Mountain and Lakes District in Northern Tasmania.
Your Hosts, Irene & Russell welcome you to a unique holiday experience!
Originally from Brisbane, Queensland, Russ and Irene came to Tasmania for a two week holiday. By the end of their holiday they had fallen in love with Tassie they made a decision to move. Two months later they were the proud owners of Glencoe and began the task of bringing the house back to her former glory.
Russ is a qualified butcher who has also worked in kitchens of 5 star hotels such as Park Royal, Sheraton Mirage and Treasury Casino. For the past 15 years Russ has been working for the QLD Ambulance service as a Advanced Care Paramedic.
Irene, a registered nurse, has spent most of her career at the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital in the ICU department. Irene is now enjoying getting Glencoe’s gardens back to their former glory, and making sure the veggie garden will be able to provide that genuine "paddock to plate" experience at your breakfast table. Irene is guilty of spoiling all the animals at Glencoe, where you will see her ducks, chickens (and cat) roam free around our gardens and grounds.
Both Russ and Irene love good quality food and are sourcing great Tasmania produce to serve. We love the concept of paddock to plate. Glencoe is the owners' first Bed and Breakfast, as when they travelled throughout Australia and Nationally they tried to accommodate themselves in B&B’s for that friendly, down to earth experience.
They want you to have a comfortable, relaxing stay with good food when you stay here at Glencoe!
*PS. If there is anything you require that would make your holiday a perfect one, just drop us a line and we will see what
can be done...
"Please drive carefully when you are on the property, as there are numerous free roaming animals on the grounds... eg. cat, dogs, ducks, chickens ... thanks!"
