Escape to a retreat floating over a vineyard on the pristine Tamar. Taste a free bottle of the latest vintage. Laze on the deck. Soak in the bathhouse. At the Picker's Shed you can enjoy low key but choice agritourism in a small architectural jewel.

The space
With a kitchen/ living area and a bunkhouse fashioned from beautiful timbers this modern cabin is a discreet aesthetic delight. The 'Picker's Shed' has the capacity to sleep a maximum of six (four in the bunkhouse built from Tasmanian oak by local craftsmen; another two in a day bed that converts into a double bed).

The cabin retreat is well designed and insulated for the vagaries of Tasmania's weather, with a supply of chopped timber for the fire guaranteeing warmth on a cold day. It is well ventilated for summer with the windows and grill over the double doors ensuring coolness.

Along the deck the wooden bathhouse allows you to lie in steaming water after a long day with a view of the river and the hills beyond.

The Picker’s Shed is located on an operating vineyard. With each booking comes a complementary bottle of the latest commercially available vintage and the freedom to stroll among the vines or walk by the beautiful Tamar River.

Where you’ll be

Deviot, Tasmania, Australia

Deviot is a neighbourhood with many possibilities.

For fishing the pier is a two-minute walk down the hill as is Deviot Sailing Club.

There is a tennis court fives minutes along the road. The hard court surface is in fairly good order, and the Picker’s Shed supplies rackets and balls (found in a chest on the deck). (You will need to take coins, though, as the court is enjoyed for $2 a game based upon an honour system.)

Further afield are Tamar valley wineries of note. The local Tamar Valley wine route highlights some dozens of vineyards.

For walkers, there is a foreshore track starting from the southern side of the Supply River (about 2 to 3 kilometres to the south from Deviot CBD back along Deviot Road) to Paper Beach. There is another pleasant short walk (30 mins) up the Supply River to the ruins of the Supply River Mill built in 1825 and a deep waterhole for swimming.

The Narawntapu National Park is an hour's drive north on the west side of the Tamar with wildlife, wetlands, beaches, dunes and lagoons. An easy walk takes you to Badger Head with a magnificent view of Bass Strait.

Low Head and Bell Buoy beach are 30 minutes on the east side of the Tamar. Built in 1805, the Low Head Conservation Area is the oldest Pilot and Signal Station in Australia and has run continuously since 1833. From Low Head you can walk down to the northern beaches. Evening penguin tours are also a feature.

For those who enjoy markets, a short trip to Evandale on a Sunday morning may be worth considering.
