We travel to Launceston occasionally to research articles for the website. We’re very lucky at Think Tasmania. It could hardly even be classed as work. Although if you’re the Tax Man and you’re reading this, then it’s definitely all work.
Country Club Villas and Golf Course
During our last visit, we stayed at Country Club Villas. A sister property to the casino and golf course resort version of the Launceston Country Club, Villas offer self-contained and family friendly accommodation. There’s even a secluded playground with grass and shady lawns for the smaller ones.
There’s plenty of room for older kids to run and ride and play between the stand-alone cottages. The local traffic is slowed with speed humps, and the large windows offer a good view to the outdoors from the villas.
Travel to Launceston for Tennis
You can see the friendly reception staff to book the tennis court for a set or two, if you’re looking to work up an appetite before dining at Bolters (Country Club Villas Pizzeria and Bistro). The bistro is reason enough to travel to Launceston. The serves are generous and main courses cost about $20-00. There’s also an Italian restaurant on site.
But with each villa having cooking facilities, there’s also an opportunity to prepare your own meals and enjoy the lovely gardens.
Family Friendly Travel to Launceston
Outdoor seating is provided at each cottage, which is a great arrangement when staying with groups. There’s also conference facilities within the grounds, so everyone can meet for a function while still having their own space near the picturesque golf course.
Country Club Villas Gym and Pool
And finally, if you do travel to Launceston and stay at Country Club Villas, you can run a few miles on a treadmill in the gym. Maybe you’ll be inspired after an AFL match at Aurora Stadium or a tournament at the Launceston Indoor Sports Arena?
Or you could do what I did, and skip the running and go straight to swimming a few laps in the heated pool. Okay, so lazing in the hot spa is actually more honest! The choice is yours.
