Cherry Top Accommodation - a Tasmanian gem
By John Gallagher

Cherry Top Accommodation and Eagle Park are two private and self-contained cottages on our farm. The farm is set up for couples to enjoy freshly cooked food and tranquillity or for families to meet the animals. There are horses, a pony,  geese,  chooks,  ducks and Tab Tab the cat. Also visit the bee house, and of course the gardens and find out where food really comes from. There is an area out the back under the tree platform (stage) with a tight rope and seesaws and stilts... it's all great for getting out doors - and there is a teepee, too. Out the front we have a 'rustic' tennis court and lots of space for a game of cricket or ball. Kids can help collect the eggs and feed the animals on the farm tour.  Visit the tack room, honey house and workshop by arrangeme... Read more
