The Owners – Linda and Scott Ashworth

Linda and Scott Ashworth are the owners of Lilybank Bed-and-Breakfast. They have lived in Cairns (and Stratford) for 18 years and took over the Lilybank property in October 2013. Passionate about the city, the suburb and the property, Linda and Scott welcome you to Lilybank.

“Welcome to Lilybank, one of Cairns’ best Bed-and-Breakfast accommodation houses, located in the leafy, green suburb of Stratford. If you are looking to live like a local and experience the ‘real Cairns’ during your stay, then our property is for you.

We regularly stay at B&Bs when we travel, so we know what you’re looking for to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our guests are welcome to enjoy many of the features at Lilybank, including the communal lounge / dining spaces and resort-style swimming pool.

Stratford has a real community feel, which is why we love living here. This gives you a taste of what living in Cairns is all about. Enjoy your stay with us and exploring our piece of this tropical paradise.”

Linda and Scott live on site, in a separate Managers’ Residence for your convenience and privacy.
