Preservation Farm-relax near Hobart & airport

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

A very convenient home away from home, only 10 minutes from the airport, and 15 minutes from Hobart CBD/waterfront, where you can spread out, relax, re-energize, and experience the peaceful Tasmanian country life with fresh air and beautiful views,

Preservation Farm is a newly-built, architect-designed, solar-powered, and private farm cottage on 21 acres.

It's located in the beautiful Coal River Valley, the premier food and wine trail of Tasmania.

The gently winding road visible from the cottage is dotted with 15 vineyards, 4 cellar door restaurants, 2 cheesemakers, 2 pick your own fruit farms (in the summer).

Some of the best of Tasmania's food, wine, and whiskies are at your doorstep.

With views to farmland, the valley, Pitt Water, and Frederick Henry Bay, the environmentally-friendly Preservation Farms accommodates up to 4 people.

It's well appointed with 2 bedrooms (1 queen, and 2 single beds), a kitchenette/dining area, a bathroom with a shower, a spacious outdoor deck with a Weber barbecue.

The new beds are very comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are spotless.

The cottage is designed to accommodate guests with impaired mobility.

Depending on the season, you can help yourselves to the vegetables growing in the beds just in the front of the deck.

From the generous deck, you can also enjoy viewing the wildlife that include wallabies, wedge-tailed eagles, and many other bird species, depending on who makes an appearance.

Preservation Farm is your convenient base to explore southern Tasmania:

10 mins to the picturesque colonial village of Richmond with shops, galleries, cafes/restaurants

10 mins to the popular Seven Mile Beach

25 mins to MONA (Museum of Old and New Art)

1 hour to Eaglehawk Neck, famous for premier game fishing and beautiful coastal scenery

1.5 hours to Port Arthur Historic Site

Also nearby is the very popular Clarence Mountain Bike Park, 2 golf courses, and many short and medium walks.

We live right next door with our super friendly Smithfield dog Max.

We respect your privacy, but Max usually likes to say hello.....

A fantastic house with a beautiful farmland view

  • 5 of 5

Our family with 2 young children loved the elegantly detailed & finished rooms. Waking up to a 180 degree view over the hillside below was a absolute delight.

Lani & Noel were the perfect hosts - welcoming at all times, but ensuring our space and privacy was always maintained.

Max is every part the lovely dog, our children were constantly waiting for him to be let out to play!

Thankyou for a wonderful week, we'll definitely be back next time in Hobart.
