Although most travelers explore the area during summer months, Stanley is a wonderful town to visit in the winter. Sea Salt House offers a cosy retreat for guests with two queen beds and two singles, all with electric blankets, two bath rooms and comfortable lounges in the living area warmed by a wood fire.


A walk through the historic town will take you past houses dating back to convict days.  Craft and coffee shops, potteries and art galleries line the main street.  Stanley is the main fishing port in the island’s north-west.  A short walk and you’ll be at the wharf (which dates back to 1827) where fishing boats can be seen bringing in the day’s catch.


A little later you can choose the freshest seafood imaginable at the local fish shop or just take fish and chips back to Sea Salt House for dinner by the fire. Just outside my back gate is The Nut, an amazing volcanic eruption discovered by Bass and Flinders in 1798.  On your way back, in Sea Salt House’s back garden, you will pass the old mill which used to grind the grain for Stanley’s residents.  It is now my kitchen! I hope you will decide to visit Stanley and stay right in its heart at Sea Salt House.  You will get a very warm welcome.
