It all started when…

In 2013 Garth and I decided we wanted a change of lifestyle. The heat in Brisbane Queensland was getting too much for us and the office environment constricting. We started browsing the internet and quickly became entranced by the possibilities in Tasmania.

When we found Stanton on the market we thought it amazing that we could soon be living in one of Australia's oldest homes. Stanton isn't a grand holding but a real farmhouse and a bit higgledly piggedly from all the changes down the generations. We thought we could make it home. Fittingly in 2017 on the house's 200th anniversary we welcomed descendants of Thomas Shone, the original owner of the property, to celebrate their family reunion.

Our family has experienced alot of joy sharing Stanton with our guests and also becoming part of the local community.
