Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Light, airy cottage set amongst gorgeous gardens overlooking the Huon Estuary. Quiet, self contained, heated/cooled. There’s absolute privacy - set well apart from the main house and screened by a tall hedge. Beverages & simple breakfast of cereal/toast/local juice/eggs provided. 8 minutes from the village of Cygnet. Private driveway off a no-through road. Many local attractions and walks within an easy drive. Wallabies and other wildlife at the door!

The space
The cottage suits people seeking privacy, peace, cleanliness and comfort, with beautiful strolls and a wealth of easy excursions at the doorstep. Cottage kitchen facilities are adequate to cook up a storm of fresh local produce. Picnic basket and cooler. Free wifi with Netflix and Stan. No neighbours. It’s the perfect retreat.

Guest access
You are welcome to stroll the grounds or set up a table outdoors. Views everywhere. Laundry available.

Other things to note
The garden is in a constant state of change. In Spring, the daffodils, tulips, iris, crocus and many other varieties are spectacular. In summer the rose gardens and lilies blaze and the lavender at the cottage doorstep has the most amazing perfume. In winter, the view opens right up through bare Silver Birch and other deciduous trees to reveal the snow-capped Hartz Range. In season, guests are welcome to dig their own potatoes and take whatever leaf happens to be happening.

Location

Wattle Grove, Tasmania, Australia

This little pocket of Wattle Grove is a quiet diversion off the primary route between Huonville and Cygnet – a stretch of coastal road known locally as 'Millionaire's Row'. There are lovely vistas across the water to the Hartz Mountains, usually snowcapped in season. Travel through Huonville to historic locations such as Franklin and Geeveston and or as far south as Cockle Creek – the southernmost point able to be accessed by road in Australia. The ferry to Bruny Island is a scenic 20-minutes drive north, along the coast of the D'Entrecasteaux passage. Pagan Cider, Home Hill Vineyard, Willie Smiths etc are close. Fat Pig Farm (of Gourmet Farmer fame on SBS) is moments down the road. Hobart is a (pleasant) hours drive to the north. Cygnet is eight minutes over the hill.

I'm a professional writer in my early sixties. Mostly commercial material however I have had several books published. I have sailed all my life – have had a number of different yachts in which I have voyaged long distances. I am a keen fisher person – mostly salt water but I am now getting into the trout.

During your stay
Love to pass on local knowledge. As a pro writer, am always interested in people and their stories. Semi-retired so almost always here. But if privacy is your wish you will not see me (and vice versa).
