The very homey and inviting B&B Sanda House is the oldest building in Orford Tasmania, and is heritage listed. It was built between 1838 to 1840 from local field rocks and sandstone giving it is wonderful historic character today. Nestled on an acre of land, away from highway noise, the property features 4 beautifully presented guest rooms with historic features, a guest sitting room, a guest dining room where breakfast is served to you daily, a 20 tree orchard, cottage gardens, chickens and a kitchen vegetable garden. B&B Sanda House is an absolutely idyllic setting and base to enjoy the richness, nature and wonders of Tasmania. 

Orford is a 50-minute scenic drive from Hobart International Airport, a 1-hour drive from Hobart City Centre and 90 minutes from Port Arthur. More information about the location and amenities below. 

From your hosts: 

"Hi, we’re Greg & Kerry and we have been running Orford Sanda House B&B since June 2016. We both came from the NSW Far North Coast and were looking for a lifestyle change and to work together. We are passionate foodies and love the company of others. Since being in Tasmania we have travelled extensively around the state visiting all the main regions and attractions. Wherever possible we stay in B&B’s.

We also spend at least one night a month in Hobart trying new restaurants and visiting galleries, the theatre, and generally enjoying all that Hobart has to offer.

Please feel free to contact us for any information regarding your travel plans to Tasmania and especially the East coast. We also run a Facebook page called ‘Eating Out in Hobart’ that offers a great guide to places to try when you are in Hobart.

We look forward to welcoming you to Orford Sanda House Colonial B&B and the wonderful Spring Bay area and we always make sure your stay is comfortable, relaxing and informative".

About the house:

Over its 176+ years, the fine sandstone house has settled comfortably in the centre of the garden, orchard and vegetable patch. The result is a property that surrounds visitors with an easy-going atmosphere of warmth and friendliness. The garden encapsulates the essence of a country cottage garden with beautiful trees, sweeping lawns and a huge variety of flowering plants and birds singing.

The B&B has four bedrooms (Rose, Jasmine, Mulberry, & Wisteria) set aside for guests. Each is furnished with our collection of antiques. All bedrooms have their own private en-suite, premium bedding, linen and towelling. Each room retains the original colonial look and feel. Rooms and bathroom towels are refreshed daily. All rooms at Sanda House Bed and Breakfast include a TV with built in DVD, heating, electric blankets, a kettle and a refrigerator. Some rooms offer a patio or a balcony. 

For more information and images on each room click the room links below.

Guests have the exclusive use of the sitting and dining rooms as well as the front veranda and the gardens. Guests can enjoy a healthy breakfast in the Dining Room in front of the wood burning fire (depending on season and weather).

The guest lounge has reading matter, books on the local history, music, board games and DVD’s. Outdoor seating is available on the veranda, in the garden and the orchard.

The laundry is available for guests who choose to stay for 2 or more nights.

Free Wi-Fi is available in communal areas.
