My husband and I have just returned from a short touring holiday along the west coast of Tasmania. The first two nights we stayed at Riversdale Cottages - a wonderful quite retreat at a vineyard, very central if hiring a car, as you are based between the airport and Hobart. Oh so quiet, no noisy neighbours or traffic, but only a 15 minute drive to the action of Hobart.
The cottages are kept so immaculately clean and the owners attention to detail is evident in the fully equipped kitchen and living areas. They offer the little touches, such as a range of books, CDs, magazines as well as a LCD TV, games for children (this is a 2 bedroom cottage).
These cottages are beautifully furnished in a French Provincial style which is so cosy, though only built last year, a welcome change from the run of the mill modern contemporary apartments seen in every city.
The large bathroom has a wonderful deep claw bath and a separate shower with the most amazing shower head.
Probably the only downside would be the European styled taps in the bathroom/shower that elderly visitors may have trouble with.
However this would rank as one of the best self-contained places we have ever stayed at.

What a find, the idea of being 10 minutes from town really appealed to me. Staying right in the heart of a working vineyard was just fantastic. The cabins are new and immaculate, tastefully decorated in French Provincial, just like the photos on the web site, no nasty surprises. The claw foot bath is deep and the shower rose as big a dinner plate. The cabins are set high on the property with great views of the river and vineyard, just lovely sitting on the verandah in the sun with a morning cuppa. On arrival there was a selection of yummy complementary treats to enjoy whilst watching one of the 200 DVD's you are able to hire from the office. If you descide to stay here you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic, brand new cottages fitted out like upmarket French hotel.
Rooms look out over vineyard. Large enamel "claw foot" bath, comfy beds, beautiful furniture and full kitchen - if you could be bothered cooking. Board games, books and a music CD collection in each cottage keep everyone occupied. Quite remote and a bit further from Hobart than the website suggests unless you break the speed limit but no matter - we came for the peace and quiet.
No telephone - fanastic! Mobile reception for the workaholic though.
Lunch - 2 minutes away in vineyard bistro.
Dinner - 5 minutes away in another vineyard restaurant
