The Shepherd's Cottage is located on a vineyard and sheep farm called Lisdillon. The stone cottage was built by the convicts in the 1800s and has stunning views of Lisdillon rivulet. The private beach is only a two minute stroll away. Included is a free tasting of our internationally award winning wine.
“Impeccably clean, cosy and steeped in history. The most wonderful view of roses, river, and ocean outside of the bathroom window. A beautiful coastline - we had fun fishing at a nearby beach, and cooking it in the excellent kitchen! Perfectly accompanied by a bottle of Pinot from the Lisdillon vineyard.”
Get away from it all in this beautiful three-bedroom cottage. At its heart is the original 1820s Shepherd's Hut. Added to over the years Dovedale is perfect for a city escape, writers retreat, baby-moon, girls weekender, or family farm stay. The cottage is cosy enough for a romantic get away and big enough for a family. Overlooking Ravensdale Rivulet and located halfway between Hobart and Coles Bay on the Great Eastern Drive, Dovedale is a perfect base to explore the magic Tasmanian East Coast.
“A cosy cottage and the perfect place to unwind. Relaxing on the generous lounge in the front room, the large windows framing the towering Eucalypt trees, the sheep grazing in the paddocks and the afternoon light flickering on the landscape. Our time at 'Dovedale' was the perfect blend of doing and being. An easy drive north to the seaside town of Swansea, or a swim at either Saltworks or Bolton Beach. Back south to the town of Triabunna for the Maria Island ferry, IGA groceries and the Fish Van or onto Orford for delightful walks, views and the most stunning Spring Beach. Maggie provides many local tips and directions. When we weren't out exploring the East Coast, we were content with the peace and quiet, comfy beds and open fire in the cottage. It would be our recommendation to stay at least two nights, we stayed six and we still didn't want to leave. A hidden gem indeed.”
Relax and have fun with family and friends while enjoying sensational sea views and a stunning landscape from this historic beach house; the perfect spot for a special holiday, a romantic getaway or as a base to explore the East Coast. The Saltworks Beach House is a waterfront cottage with short walks to secluded beaches for swimming and longer coastal walks. Close to an all weather boat ramp, it’s an ideal location for every season. It has a special 'wow' factor you will always remember.
“A beautifully appointed house in an amazing location. Stunning views over the ocean to the Freycinet Peninsula. The house was clean and comfortable. We all slept extremely well in the warm and cosy beds. Efficient communication with the hosts with prompt replies to any queries. Would love to return one day!”
