Orchard Cottage at Boat Harbour

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Cottage sits in the large garden of a 30 acre farm. The garden has been part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme in February 2013. The cottage is remote from the farm house and has unrestricted views towards Table Cape, Bass Strait and surrounding farm land.

Reverse cycle airconditioning ensures comfort regardless of the season.

The two bedrooms (king and queen),spa bath,large living area and fully equipped kitchen makes for a relaxing holiday.

A small vineyard has been planted and in season, fruit from apple, plum, nectarine, peaches and cherry is available to sample direct from the organically grown trees. A walnut orchard is adjacent to the cottage orchard as well.

Generally sheep and cattle are available for guests to view and the free range hens can be seen around the garden. Bob, the friendly Border Collie may also visit from time to time.

Nearby Attractions

Boat Harbour Beach is just 5 minutes away and provides a beautiful white sandy beach and generally great swimming.

Wynyard is some 15 minutes to the East and has all the features and amenities, of a successful rural town, visitors centre . cycle paths and children play equipment on the beach front. Wynyard is also home to two very good golf courses.

Excellent bush walking is close by at Sisters Beach, with a good track over the Sisters Hills, also our cottage is well situated for day trips to Cradle Mountain, Stanley, and the well known surf beach Marawah.

A five minute drive takes you to the top of Table Cape, to a working flower farm. Tours of the lighthouse can be arranged, there is a lovely cliff side walk.

Perfect Base for Exploring the N.W.

  • 5 of 5

Loved it.

Brilliant base for our first trip to the N.W.

Boat Harbour Beach....possibly best in Tassie if not Australia.

Table Cape views from the deck & fascinating, magical garden to explore. Loved the orchard romps in the morning & afternoon. Kids loved the swings. Best shower for after beach & spa for relaxing.

Thanks Orchard Cottage...would love to come back when poppies & tulips are out & the orchard is full & ripe.

Peaceful Haven

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to stay at Orchard Cottage. We loved the peaceful, rural setting which was an excellent base from which to explore the north west. The Cottage has plenty of space and is a visual feast with the surrounding gardens and Ruth's art work on the walls. This was a highlight of our Tasmanian trip.

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant March Long Weekend. Bob's welcome, the kids wandering through the fruit trees, some kite flying on the front lawn, the perfect Tassie beach, the proximity to Stanley etc, the one minor issue we had was fixed quickly, easily and without fuss and the communication was excellent. House, deck and spa all wonderful.
