We stayed 2 nights and wished we could have stayed a week. Helen was truly lovely and very thoughtful. The stay was intimate but private with independence. I loved the tranquility of seeing water in the distance from the cottage. The breakfast provisions were devine and on par with my values of wholesome/wholefood produce. The cottage was well maintained and... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Herons Rise Vineyard! It was our favourite accommodation on our trip around Tasmania. The little cottage that we stayed in was so private and comfortable. Helen (new owners) stocked our fridge with the most delicious foods for breakfast and we were so delighted by the personal touches she added to make our stay even... More

Arrived without pre-booking on the off chance we would find a room for the night. Helen was very welcoming and so within 1/2 hour of settling in we did not hesitate in securing another 2 nights. The accommodation was to a very high standard, even had a wood burning fire and fully functional kitchen. The views from the deck were... More

I was very impressed by the cottage, the environment and of the the very warm welcome and by Helen. We are on our honeymoon trip and stay in the Heron Rise Vineyard before the visit to Bruny Island, therefore the location is excellent since it is close to the pier, within a few minutes drive and gas station is nearby....

For a true vineyard Farmstay experience - Herons Rise is a little gem in Kettering. Very comfortable and spacious accommodation with friendly and welcoming hosts. Peppermint Bay a great restaurant down the road and quick access to Bruny Island for a foodie trail. You can even try the Herons Rise wine.

We stayed in the small cottage at the very top of the property. The building is beautifully designed and suits a couple very well. The lounge area is quite large and has a great view of the water and Bruny Island. The bed was super comfy and very warm in May/June. The sounds of nature is pretty much all you... More

We stayed just for one night in the studio apartment. An absolutely gorgeous surprise of a place and so nice to have a log fire. I do have to agree though with an earlier reviewer that some of the windows could have done with a clean, however, having said that we were able to get views of Ella, the horse,... More

Our family of 4 found the Clock tower cottage very comfortable with quality bed linen and super comfortable pillows. Sue was extremely helpful in arranging provisions for our Christmas day arrival and there was a lovely Christmas tree inside to make it feel special. The kids loved feeding Ella the horse, the chickens, and meeting the dogs and picking berries... More

Stayed in the studio cottage for 2 nights - a great relaxing start to our week in Tasmania. The cottage is very quiet and with a great aspect over the gardens - and to the channel (although a bit hampered by dirty windows). The cottage is very comfortable and the breakfast provisions particularly the lovely fresh bread much appreciated. Some... More
