Discover country life on an organic apple orchard and yet be only 10 min away from beautiful local beaches. We have spacious 3 bedroom -Eden ( sleeps 6 )- and 4 bedroom accommodation -the Farmhouse ( sleeps 8 )- that are fully equipped for your comfort and tranquility, set on a 40 acre working organic apple orchard in Cygnet part of the Huon Valley. It's a great place to start exploring from. The calendar is for Eden only.

Eden Orchard & Farmstay won the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Certificate of Excellence Award, a direct result of consistent great reviews from Tripadvisor travelers.

Explore the farm: meet our animals the goats, alpaca's, heritage pigs, cows, sheep, bunnies, turkeys and chooks. We also have four dams in which platypus reside, pademelon, possums, quolls at your doorstep and eagles soaring over the orchard. You can be as much involved with life on the farm as you like, feed the animals, take a tour around the orchard, have a look for some fossils, explore the polly tunnel or just keep to your selves as we give you all the privacy you want.

Also close are The Tahune Airwalk, Hastings Caves, Bruny Island and the Salamanca markets just to name a few. A special mention of all the of great Vineyards and restaurants is in place or get your hands on our fresh local produce and cook up a storm in your own kitchen.

About Cygnet ( we're 2 minutes out of Cygnet centre )

Cygnet is a small town of approximately 1000 people, situated in the Huon Valley 45 minutes southwest of Hobart and 12 minutes out of Huonville. Cygnet is in the heart of the Huon Valley, an apple, cherry and berry growing district. Over the past thirty years it has successfully mixed alternative lifestyle and visitors activities such as woodturning, shops with interesting local crafts, lovely cafes and diners and holiday cottage accommodation with more traditional dairy cattle, orchards, mixed farming and sawmilling. It is an area of such richness that the recent SBS cooking/lifestyle series Gourmet Farmer showcased both the area and its presenter, Matthew Evans's, love of local fresh produce and cuisine designed to make enthusiastic foodies go weak with delight. Matthew Evans set up his Fat Pig Farm just on the out skirts of Cygnet and his lunches and cooking classes are real popular.

Every second weekend of January Cygnet hosts the famous Cygnet Folk Festival a real drawcard for any music lover, we host visitors from all over that attend this festival yearly.

Cygnet also started a French Inspired weekend once a year, due to the French connections with admiral Bruni D'Entrecasteaux naming the bay that runs up to Cygnet Port des Cygnets noir due to the high amount of black swans that reside in this area.

Your accommodation is warm and inviting.

Eden Farmstay is elegantly furbished with your comfort as the main priority, it feels like a home away from home.

(The Farmhouse has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 and has it's own seperate listing for large group bookings you can book both and would sleep up to 14)

It's a great place to stay in for the day with a good book on the couch, watch one of our up to date movies or play a nice board game. We have all of these available and keep them updated. There is an enclosed garden area with small playground bunnies and BBQ facilities in front of the farm stay, we also have kites, badminton and croquet set.

Great place for family

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Eden Farm Stay – The accommodation was great for our family of 4, we had a great outdoor eating area we used when the weather was good. There were lots of little additions inc. needle and thread, books, DVDs to make it feel like a home away from home and some complementary food items on arrival to help get you started that was great esp. as we arrived late at night. Matthew gave great feeding tours with our boys that allowed them to interact and feed the animals that was great. There was an area of the farm that has a bunch of fossils that made for a great morning exploring for the family. There was a fire pit we used one evening to toast marshmallow and a place Matthew showed us where the Pademelon could be spotted early evening. We borrowed the farms fishing gear one day to go down to one of the jetties for a fish. We had a week in the area and there was more than enough to keep us busy for all that time. A great area to visit and a great choice of accommodation.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 2 night stay at Eden! Matt and Jo and so welcoming and wonderful hosts. The cottage was snug but perfect - even with 2 adults and 4 kids! It was the perfect place for two best friends to catch up on 6 years and have the kids entertained. We absolutely will be back.

Friendly Farmstay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the farm was simply lovely. Jo and Matt are such friendly hosts. Accommodation was very comfortable and had everything we needed including breakfast supplies. Fresh eggs were a great bonus. Lovely surroundings. 2 min drive into Cygnet village. Central to exploring Huon Valley. Our 11 year old LOVED the stay - especially having Pancakes the rabbit living in her yard and getting to feed all the animals. The animals are all close by and it is lovely to wander around the property. I would highly recommend Eden Farmstay.

Excellent experience

The farmhouse was well fitted out and very comfortable. Our hosts, Jo and Matt, made us very welcome and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Out gandson really enjoyed getting up close to the animals, especially the turkeys, rabbit and kid.
