Free-standing, spacious, warm, sunny and private loft/cottage in rural setting and glorious sea-views. The Wine Loft is up a flight of external stairs and can accommodate 6 people in two bedrooms (4 in one and 2 in the other). We offer breakfast provisions at $15 per person and you would cook your own breakfast in the kitchen in the Wine Loft.

The space

We are a vineyard in a 12-acre rural setting. We offer generous breakfast provisions at an additional $15 per person and you would cook your own breakfast at leisure in your own accommodation. We have two cottages, both of which are free-standing, private, peaceful, spacious, sunny and warm. Both have lovely rural and sea views looking across to Bruny Island. Both also have a wood fire and you will arrive to a cosy and warm cottage with the fire already lit on a chilly day.

The Wine Loft, at the bottom of the property, is up an external flight of sandstone stairs and has a large and sunny kitchen/living room area. There are two bedrooms, both with queen beds, while the main bedroom also has a single bed. A further single bed can be set up in the main bedroom and the cottage can therefore accommodate a maximum of six people. There are rural and/or sea-views from all the windows. There is a deck, where you can sit and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine.

The tariff is per couple sharing per night on a self-catering basis. There is an a $45 cost per each additional person. As mentioned, for an additional cost, we will supply generous breakfast provisions, which includes a loaf of our fresh home-made bread. You can enjoy one of our bottles of wine ($25 for the Pinot Noir and $20 for the Muller Thurgau) in front of the log fire or out on the deck. We also supply a range of reasonably-priced dinner and breakfast provisions and snacks for you to cook up a storm, if you feel like eating at home.

Guest access

While we welcome guests to wander around the property, we do ask that you respect our privacy, as well as the privacy of other guests. We all like to enjoy the peace and beauty of our lovely environment.

Interaction with guests

I am usually about but, if I am not, I am but a phone call away. If you need anything and are not able to contact me, you can leave a note on the white board outside the main house.

Other things to note

In summer, there are Tiger snakes about and we ask that you please wear closed shoes should you walk about the property. There is also a small duck pond which is not enclosed, and a creek which borders the property, and guests with children should not allow them to wander about the property unaccompanied.

I warmly recommend this place to couples and families alike. Peace, serenity and non-pretentious style, attention to detail, warm and welcoming atmosphere, nature's abundant beauty all around. Absolute perfection all the way. Our crew couldn't have been happier with our experience. Thank you Helen & co!

We had a fantastic overnight stay at the Wine Loft. Helen had great suggestions on things to do and where to eat in the area. Although our stay was short we got to see and do a lot. The loft was also well equipped with everything to make your stay more homely. We loved the wood fire!

We had a lovely stay in Kettering. The wine loft was set out so nicely! It for our small family of 3 with plenty of room to spare. Helen was very helpful & friendly. The perfect spot for day trips to Bruny Island or the Huon Valley.

Helen, Miriam And Russel User ProfileHelen, Miriam And Russel is a superhost.

We are the new owners of Herons Rise Vineyard Accommodation. Russel and Miriam both work as veterinarians, while Helen, Russel's mum, manages the accommodation. Russel and Miriam have two indoor only cats and many chooks, including heritage Araucana chooks that lay delicious blue-shelled eggs.

The vineyard has 30 year old Pinot Noir - we are looking forward to our first grape harvest, but it's taking a while because we're not using chemicals. We also have a flourishing vegetable garden and orchard and aim to keep all these as pesticide-free as possible. We have four beautiful ducks that are loving the new duck pond, as well as a working and several disease-free bee hives.

The bird life is abundant and the superb fairy wren a favourite frequent visitor. The plovers have nests with well camouflaged eggs in the vineyard - when these hatch, the parents let us know (very loudly!) when they think we are too close to their young. We also have lots of Tasmanian native hens (aka turbo chooks). Wallabies and red-bellied pademelons graze the paddocks at night...and Tasmanian Devils have been seen very close-by. We love the rural feel of Herons Rise Vineyard, as well as the views of the Channel and Bruny Island. And Hobart is an easy 30-minute drive away.

We all love the outdoors and travelling, and Tasmania is a fantastic place to do that - the air is clean and the colour of the water is sublime. The people are friendly and the fresh food culture is wonderful.
