Rivulet views, open-plan living, and 19th-century history await you in this convict built stone cottage situated on Lisdillon’s historic sheep farm and vineyard.

Settle in for a cosy weekend away; stroll on the private beaches, try your luck fishing, or sip on a glass of our award-winning wine.

It’s the perfect base to explore Tasmania's scenic East Coast, such as Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park (1hr drive) and Maria Island ferry (25 min drive).

The space
Picture yourself sitting by the woodfire; pinot noir in one hand, book in the other, and sprawling views of the Lisdillon rivulet in front of you. That’s The Shepherd’s Cottage.

Step inside this two-storey, rubble stone cottage built by convicts in the early to mid-1800s. You’ll be greeted with a modern, open-plan kitchen and living room with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the river and beach.

And when the view gets too tempting, you can wander along Lisdillon’s 5km private coastline of three pristine, private beaches with just a few minutes walk.

Welcome hamper
Walk into the scent of freshly baked bread, plus local honey, butter and tastings of Lisdillon’s sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. (Please note that the hamper won't be available from August until end of September).

Master bedroom
Make yourself at home in this spacious room featuring a vaulted ceiling, views of the Lisdillon estate and a king bed waiting for you to jump in.

Open-plan dining & living
Enjoy a selection of board games, books, literature on Lisdillon’s history, or switch on the telly as you relax next to the crackling wood fire.

Separate modern kitchen
Everything you need for your morning coffee and tea, or to cook up a storm with local ingredients you can pick up on a drive to Coles Bay.

Modern bathroom
Featuring beach views, a spacious shower, and a range of natural products available for you to use.

Private beach
Lisdillon Estate is one of the few lucky places in the world that has its very own private beach. Lisdillon's property extends to low tide mark so its boundaries grow bigger and smaller every second! Even though it is private and most of the time there won't be another person in sight you will occasionally come across other guests and people who rent shacks on the farm.

Private river
Take a moment to breathe and unwind on a quick stroll to the nearby river.

**POP UP PICNIC AT LISDILLON
We are also very excited to offer to our guests Pop up picnics Tasmania. Enjoy some beautiful local produce while enjoying everything the coast has to offer! A special discount will be applied to guests staying at Lisdillon.
Please contact us to organise this special experience.

Lisdillon Wine
Taste and/or buy a bottle of Lisdillon's award winning Pinot Noir and Sav Blanc. Order prior to your booking so it is waiting in your cottage when you arrive OR order when you arrive and have it delivered to your door in 5 minutes.

A fisherman’s haven
Trot down to the seafront of the Lisdillon Estate or rivulet and enjoy all the aquatic life on offer. We ask that all fish caught in the river and estuary are on a strictly catch and release basis (unless you are going to eat them) in order to preserve the environment of the river and estuary. Please only use lures, not bait hooks.

The sea out the front of our property offers bay flathead, salmon, squid, cod, crayfish, and so much more. In the Lisdillon Rivulet, you’ll also find bream, oysters, brown trout, native galaxia and many other creatures.

Where you’ll be

Little Swanport, Tasmania, Australia

Lisdillon is a 6000-acre working sheep farm and vineyard. The estate includes three secluded beaches as well as the reef off the main beach and a rivulet and estuary. Featuring unrivalled views of The Hazzards, Freycinet National Park, and Maria Island.

Back in the day (1830), the land once housed a small but thriving township. The sheep farm,19th-century cottages and sprawling native land are living reminders of Lisdillon’s rich history. Now home to an award-winning vineyard and boutique accommodation, Lisdillon is the perfect balance of past and present Tasmania.

Make the most of the expansive lands by walking, swimming, fishing or bringing your kayaks and exploring the river and coastline.

Or if you fancy a venture beyond the estate, eat at one of the local cafes or restaurants in Swansea, Triabunna or Orford (all within half an hour's drive). The award-winning restaurant Piermont is only a ten-minute drive. Other local adventures include whale watching, bike riding, quad bike touring, and more.

All in all, Lisdillon is the perfect escape for individual travellers, couples, families, or friends. In fact, many of our guests describe Lisdillon as one of the most beautiful places they have seen on their visit to Australia.
