Ian was very accommodating with our busy schedule and was so lovely about greeting us and showing us around. Not to mention the generous breakfast stocked in the cottage. The eggs were seriously amazing and from his beautiful chickens. The view was unbelievable and the cottage it…

Ian was a kind host and his property is situated on a beautiful piece of land with serene views over the River. Very peaceful and calm environment.

Ian and Shona were such warm hosts, leaving breakfast for us and visiting us in the morning to check in. Their place is a gem -what a peaceful way to retreat for the new year!

Ian and Shona were excellent hosts and always enthusiastic with heaps of travel advice around the area and local wineries to visit! The views at the cottage are stunning. We were unlucky with the weather, a rarity in Tasmania but on arrival they had the heater going and the place…

Beautiful view but too small for an adult family of five. Outdated facilities.

Response from Ian:
As stated in the property description, we have one 2 bedroom cottage and one 1 bedroom cottage. The two bedroom cottage normally accommodates 4 people but can accommodate up to 5 with the provision of a trundle bed. 5 adults is a squeeze and we would not normally recommend it for 5 adults, 4 is fine. The accommodation is not modern but is clean, comfortable and well-equipped: includes generous breakfast provisions, heating, air conditioning, electric blankets, additional blankets, recliner lounge, large flat screen TV with built in DVD player (DVDs and CDs), laundry facilities, large shower, separate toilet, full sized family kitchen with dining table and chairs, unlimited high speed internet, large balcony/deck with table, chairs and bbq, private old world garden setting and spectacular views of the Tamar River. We think it offers very good value for money. 51 photos of the accommodation both interior and exterior and of the views, the gardens and surrounding are are on the site.

A fantastic location with gorgeous views of the Tamar. Lots of interesting wildlife and many excellent vineyards in close proximity. Ian was very helpful with a great knowledge of the area.

The River Retreat was beautiful. We knew there would be a great view from the pictures, but it's even better in person - lots of birds and pademelons around too! Wonderful HQ from which to explore the lovely Tamar Valley, especially the local vineyards. Highly recommend Goaty Hil…
