The Gregan Retreat's located on a farm called Lisdillon Estate. The house comfortably fits two and overlooks the vineyard and Lisdillon Rivulet which flows down to Lisdillon's private beach, only a five minute stroll away.
The house has a large balcony to relax and enjoy the view of the vineyard and Lisdillon Rivulet. It has a fireplace to keep you toasty warm through those winter nights (however as we don't tend to do as many firewood runs in summer there is a chance there will be no firewood in that season). We offer a relaxed stay on a farm. We have a private beach which is so untouched that many rare birds nest there. We also have a private river which is brimming with a variety of fish if you enjoy fishing (strictly catch and release). Bring your kayaks and float down the rivulet to the beach.
If you have a boat you can take it out to the sea and fish in front of our property (a list of species you can catch is available below).
The house comfortably fits two people. It has a kitchen/living room, bathroom and separate bedroom with queensized bed.
The property is situated 21 kilometres outside of the nearest town of Swansea, and an hour and a half from Hobart. Swansea and its surroundings have some well-known gourmet restaurants, the closest of which, Piermont, is only a ten minute drive away if guests wish to indulge themselves.
It is a fifty minute drive to Coles Bay, and the world famous Freycinet National Park. Several vineyards set amidst the stunning scenery of the east coast of Tasmania, are within easy driving distance. Taste the high quality wine of Milton and Springvale at their cellar doors.
Perfect for a relaxed weekend away, and you may even get to try some of Lisdillon's delicious pinot noir.

- bay flathead
- king flathead
The Lisdillon Rivulet has:

Other things to note
Though we drink the water, we do advise guests to bring their own drinking water. As we are 21 km from the nearest town, guests are advised to bring their groceries with them.
Please leave the house tidy and keep all gates on the farm closed. No pets are allowed on the property.
