Set in the peaceful Huon Valley minutes from Cygnet & overlooking the Huon Estuary, Wattle Grove Homestead is the perfect escape from the hustle & bustle. From snow-capped mountain views to autumn colours & green pasture the scene is constantly changing.

The space
Set in the rolling hills of Tasmania made famous by the Gourmet Farmer Matt Evans- Wattle Grove is a private 15 acre farm surrounded by grazing cattle & sheep. The elevation of the farm provides picturesque river and port views whilst also ensuring a peaceful and secluded holiday stay.

Tasmanias' renowned clean air, water and fertile soils will ensure a restorative break away.

Wattle Grove is a large, luxury, three bedroom home offering the following features:
- Open kitchen, dining, lounge area with wood fireplace, flat screen TV, panoramic views and comfortable furnishings.
- The gourmet kitchen has a walk in pantry stocked with organic and whole food essentials. Food processor, quality cookware, crystal glassware, platters and vases ensure memorable entertaining occasions.
- Kitchen and dining areas lead out onto a large deck with an outdoor setting.
- Large double office with printers and access points, combines a study with fireplace and sitting room- the views from the study are of rolling hills, tall trees and grazing cattle. A wireless music system can be linked to your smart phone. I recommend Pandora or similar personalised radio for uninterrupted soothing background soundscapes.
- Three large bedrooms- two queen size and one double room come made up with electric blankets, feather pillows and both light and heavy wool doons. Bedside lamps and writing desks are provided.
- Master bedroom contains en-suite with heating, walk-in robe and bay window lounge for quiet contemplations.
- The front verandah opens off the master bedroom, study and dining room and has a porch swing which catches the sun and lets you watch the garden blossoming.
- A large laundry has linen cupboard, washing machine and dryer.
- the property has a fruit grove, ornamental gardens, vegetable garden (a work in progress), rolling pastures, sheep and neighbouring cattle. There are 3 dams surrounded by natural bushland and views over rollings hills and port Huon.
- A cubby house replica of the home awaits our younger guests with colouring pencils, tables and chairs on the porch.

With easy access to markets, wineries, organic cider house, cafes and produce stores you will find yourself in gourmet heaven. Cygnet has a world class butcher, Garden Pantry and markets to meet your needs.

Have a look at the Huon Trail app with details of four areas along the trail- the Huon Valley, the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Bruny Island and the remote and wild Far South. Highlights include towering sea cliffs, dramatic mountain peaks, ancient forests, underground caves, crystal waterways, native flora and fauna and sensational landscapes.

Closer to home.....
Stroll the gentle slopes of the farm or walk to the banks of the Huon, take a short drive to Cygnet Yacht Club picnic and parkland or drive an hour to majestic forests- you will need at least 5 days to experience it all and to unwind.

The week ends bring delightful local markets- you will want to experience Cygnet, Kettering or Huonville and you must take a scenic drive via Nicholls Rivulet to Hobarts Salamanca or Farm Gate Market which is held mid-week

For an evening out- Friday evenings at The Willy Smith Cider House or Wednesday night nibbles and cider at Pagan just outside Cygnet are highly recommended.

I am a wife to sailor and handy-man Robert- mother and grandmother, Nutritionist and hobby farmer. Food for healing is my passion together with functional medicine. I love walks by the Huon River, chats with the sheep, knitting and reading the latest in nutritional medicine. I can't live without organic produce, Tasmanian butter, Willie Smith bone dry cider as the sun goes down and last but by no means least my family around the table.
