Guest access
River Cottage is all yours to relax, unwind & enjoy. Feel free to wander around the area in front of the cottage & the main house to enjoy views of the river & natural bush from the outdoor cedar hot tub.
You also have direct access to the river & are welcome to use the jetty & surrounding areas - a great spot for enjoying a coffee or an afternoon/evening wine. Light the outdoor fire, relax & toast your marshmallows, cast a line off our jetty & if you're lucky you may catch a sea-run trout, cocky salmon or flathead for dinner? Slide one of our kayaks into the river from our front lawn. Nature lovers and photographers will love our frequent visitors, the stunning Wedge Tail & White-Bellied Sea Eagles, Kookaburras & the abundant bird species & of course the ducks. It's all about making your own special memories here at River Cottage Tasmania.

Hi from Barb & Gavin ;-) We love other people being able to experience our cottage and the unique view......let's face it, it is awesome! We have been Airbnb hosts since late 2018 and during that time we have met many amazing and wonderful people from all around the world and Australia. We try to meet our guests on arrival to say hello and are on hand to offer help, advice and insider tips of places to go and things to see. On a personal note, we are both keen travelers and have done our fair share in Australia and overseas. Wishing you happy travels and looking forward to meeting you soon :-)
