Hope Cottage, Kingscote Reviews

  • Visited today, and to my shame I can’t remember the lady volunteers name, but she was very welcoming and friendly. I’d wanted to visit as love old houses set up in how they used to be, and I wasn’t disappointed, I highly recommend a visit! My husband and son had tagged along, and gone off to look around the other areas and lighthouse-to day they were very impressed with the displays and thoroughly enjoyed it, is an understatement! Well worth a visit, just go 😊

  • One of the best volunteer places I have been to thanks for the memory

  • Very well done. Credit to those who put the work into it.

  • Very well set out. Heritage items on display and description for them.. no wallboards to read.

  • Very enjoyable & informative display.
