Upton Abbey is over 100 years old and sits quietly on the side of hill looking out over Launceston. The downstairs studio is self contained with a small kitchen and a queen bed. It is quiet and only a 15 minute walk to the centre of the city.
Upton Abbey is a beautiful old house that we are bringing back to life! It is tucked away on the side of the hill in its own private garden. It is a little hard to find, but that's what makes it such a great spot!
The studio is a single room with a separate kitchenette and bathroom that is separate from the rest of the house. Your own private access is through the bathroom and up a couple of winding stairs. It's typical of these old houses when they evolve over time and build up their character in layers...
The kitchenette has a small stove, kettle, a toaster and a fridge. There is also a BBQ outside that guests are more than welcome to use.
You have the studio to yourself and are very welcome to spend time outside in the garden. The house is on a fairly steep block with stairs to and from the studio entry, but there are also very good views!
Interakcija s gostima
Studio guests can have as much or as little interaction with us as they wish. We live upstairs so someone will usually be around assist with any requests. My kids play out in the yard and you'll also get to meet our 14yo Jack Russell - Basil - when he's out and about. He loves pats, but don't believe him if he tells you he's allowed in the studio.
Upton Abbey is a smoke free apartment and we ask that guests respect our studio and our space and not smoke anywhere on the property.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen facilities (that's what they are there for), however we ask that the dishes are done and the kitchen is left as it is found.
