Saints and Sinners Bed and Breakfast and Cafe
Is located in the picturesque town of New Norfolk, located in the Derwent Valley in Southern Tasmania
Built in the early 1800’s the first building, pre 1833, operated as an Inn and is constructed from double handmade convict brick covered with plaster and lath. In 1850 the Catholic Church purchased the property for use as a chapel and presbytery until 1887 when construction of the current church was complete. The Cafe retains the original 14′ 6″ ceilings, Georgian ceiling rose, massive cornices, skirting boards and stunning blackwood floorboards.
So operating as both an Inn and a Church, the origins of the name “Saints and Sinners” becomes obvious.
Circa 1855 the second stage was added. Again constructed of double handmade convict brick. This is currently the guest’s lounge and kitchen area.
1895 to 1900 saw the two-storey accommodation section and front verandah added. A timber frame coated in plaster and lath both inside and out.
In 1999 the old house was refurbished for use as a bed and breakfast. Walls were removed from small single bedrooms to create larger rooms. The original staircase remains as do the skirting boards and panel doors.
In January 2016 the B&B and Cafe passed into the hands of Kevin & Vicki Daw and their Daughter Jessica, whose talents in the kitchen make the newly re-opened cafe one of the go to places in New Norfolk to enjoy some of Tasmania’s freshest produce.
