We had a lovely stay at Gavin's. Franklin is a special spot and the church was a unique, very clean and very comfortable place to stay . Everything we needed! Make sure to try the pizza and fish across the street. Pub was fun too.

Thank you so much Mathew and Dianne. I sincerely appreciate your kindness, thoughtfulness and encouragement with my vision for the Abbey. It was incredible to meet both of you and socialise during those balmy afternoons over the Christmas and New Year period. Your kind words, and excellent review, is truly appreciated.

I have only recently relocated to Tasmania, but have previously hosted short term accommodation businesses in Queensland for more than seven years. I was attracted to the lifestyle in Tasmania and the wonderful produce available in the Huon Valley region.
