Bridestowe passed from the Denny family into corporate ownership when Tim Denny retired in 1989. Over many years, the farm began to change without the specialist care and attention of family ownership.
In 2006 the current owners learnt that the historic farm with its unique product was for sale. They took on the challenge of restoring the farm to agricultural excellence as well as reinvigorating visitors’ experiences.
Now eight short years later, Bridestowe sets the global benchmark for excellence in agrotourism. Each year more than 50,000 visitors from all around the world stroll through the stunning fields, set in one of the most photographed landscapes in Tasmania.
The impeccable farm, manicured gardens and excellent visitor facilities are now a fitting tribute to the cultural and historical significance of this unique site. Guests wander through the purple fields, chat over local delicacies in the onsite café and indulge in a gift or two made with the finest lavender oil in the world.
