The owners would appreciate that on Departure - the property should be left in a similar state to its condition on arrival. Check-out time is 10:00am by the latest, to allow time to prepare property for next guests.

Upon arrival please read Instruction book left on the Kitchen Table this will help you to orient to the property as this property was once a operating Hop Kiln it is very large and you will feel like you have an amazing amount of space. The book tells you everything you need to know in regard to finding things and make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

The property is situated on the banks of the Derwent River and the river is fast flowing - be aware the banks are sometimes slippery during wet weather, so please take care, children must be supervised at all times.

The Owners would like you to enjoy the river, and it's resident Platypus so if you sit quietly on the grass area just before sun down you may see him making his way back to his burrow under the banks at the water's edge.

Note from Owners:

There is also an adjoining paddock and this is private property please do not enter the enclosure.

There is also another out building which I use for my Art and Music activities when we are here, there is a colonial verandah, you are welcome to sit on as it has a great vantage point, the quarters inside however are private and for our use.

Lovely location but next to fast flowing river and a road so children need to be supervised. Beautiful home that we so enjoyed staying in- can't wait till the next time- thank you Heather!!

Very comfortable big secluded house overlooking the beautiful Derwent River. Great location for a family or friend group to enjoy some time together. We also visited a couple of local wineries but you do need a designated driver. We spent a lovely afternoon picnicking on the river bank below the house followed by an evening on the lovely large deck overlooking the river. Bring your insect repellent though.

We stayed here with another family, in total 4 adults and 6 young children. We had a fantastic time, the house was spacious and could easily accomodate more. The best part is the peaceful and tranquil surrounds. Thanks Heather.

Spacious, comfortable and clean accommodation perfect for a large group of family like us. There was a cute and fat goose welcoming us in front of the door. The kids and the adults were so excited to explore the house once we arrived. My inlaw and I were very happy cooking in my kind of dream kitchen overlooking the gorgeous garden views. We got herbs and fresh flowers from the massive backyard garden, and the secluded river is perfect for fishing with a cup of tea. We also enjoyed the spectacular star view at night. The strong wifi signal was a bonus for 6 of us. Really enjoy the holiday, would love to stay longer.

Everything was just perfect for our family gathering. A beautiful home away from home. The house is so well equipped and great spaces for the kids to hang out too. The river is divine and catching two trout was a bonus! Really in a fantastic location with all tourist attractions in the area only a short drive away. We are already looking for another excuse for a family event so we can go back.

The Swallows Nest Old Hop Kiln accommodation exceeded expectations from the minute we arrived. We'd planned a family trip to Tassie to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday and wanted to find a place reasonably close to Hobart that would sleep 10 people comfortably. We received the instructions and tips for the place by Heather before arriving and made our way to the house after arriving in Hobart after our flight. It was about a 45min drive from the airport and when we arrived we were all pleasantly surprised with the house and the amazing surroundings of the river and spacious living areas and kitchen. To be honest the photos don't do it justice. The house is completely set up with everything you need including Austar and WiFi. We had enough bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms to not feel cramped or restricted when getting ready in the mornings or relaxing in the evenings. The house is close to New Norfolk (15min drive) and we were able to grab the staples such as bread, milk etc. there, as well as drinks and pizza on the first night. I would highly recommend the accommodation to anyone wanting a relaxing stay which is just out of town, with everything you'd need for your time away from home. Thanks Heather for allowing us to stay at the house, if we return to Tassie, I'd love to come back and stay again!
