Many will recognise this farmhouse from the Gourmet Farmer SBS TV series, with its big farmhouse kitchen and Rayburn wood-burning stove. No longer a working farm, it’s a relaxing base for a southern Tasmanian holiday, under an hour from Hobart. Tour the gorgeous Huon Valley, hang out in our sunroom with garden and forest views, and snuggle in front of the fire on a winter’s evening. Puggle Farm has surprising privacy and solitude, yet only two minutes’ drive into the charming village of Cygnet.

We were a group of three couples and loved every minute of our stay at Puggle Farm. Mel was warm and welcoming and went above and beyond with her special touches, which made us feel right at home from the beginning. We loved roaming around the backyard/property and also caring fo…

Puggle Farm is a special place. It's very cosy and very relaxing. It's so wonderful to sit in front of the fire in winter and the sunroom and back paddock is delightful. Mel is a great communicator and very welcoming. The beds and bedding are comfortable, the kitchen well kitted …

Very comfortable country home with a beautiful garden and view. Really convenient being so close to town too. The house offers just the right amount of country life for city dwellers. We had a fun and relaxing time. Mel was extremely helpful with tips and instructions. However, …

Response from Mel:
Thanks Belinda. Glad you loved the place. But I disagree with you about the wildlife. There's heaps! Perhaps you didn't grab the head torches by the front door and walk down to the paddock after dark. We've just done it, and it's still teeming with wallabies despite the paddock being slashed recently, as it is every year. There are also quolls and possibly Tassie devils, but we haven't seen them yet. You're correct about the farm experience; that's not what we offer, and I've edited the house listing to make this clearer. Unfortunately we recently lost a couple of chooks, but will get more soon.

Puggle Farm is a divine escape from the world. Mel was an exceptional and kind host. The views, the house, the chickens and complete privacy. Really easy to spend the whole time at the house. Thankyou Mel
