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

Well if you get the opportunity don't miss the 'Clock Tower' cottage....what a wonderful spot to stay....absolute privacy in a quiet setting overlooking the bay.....log fire if you need it ....do your washing....bargain!!!!.....and don't forget they have their own vineyard so you can try their wine....the 2010 'pinot' was brilliant....the most restful part of our trip.

We stayed for just one night recently. We found the cottages to be in immaculate presentation. Everything was perfect from the wood supplied to light the fire, instructions on how to operate the fire, home grown breakfast, roomy comfortable and warm. Everything has been thought of here. Watch as the sun goes down and the wallaby come out to graze.... More

We had booked this on somebody's recommendation. It is run by Sue and Gerry who both work elsewhere. You could end up staying there without seeing either of them but it is probably unlikely. It was a purpose built attractive cottage with open plan kitchen lounge and bedroom and separate bathroom of course. There was a note for us when... More

Idyllic doesn't do it justice. A beautiful setting, tranquil, service second to none, delicious Pinot Noir and then there's the freshly baked bread every morning...what more can I say. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Even if you can only stay for a night, it's well worth making the trip. I look forward to going back again as soon... More

We stayed in the Studio cottage. It was a beautifully designed room with lovely wood fittings and a very relaxing ambience. The owner was very friendly and the house wine was delicious. We would gladly stay again if we happen to be in Tasmania as the location was great, good access to the Huon valley as well as Hobart and... More
