This absolute waterfront property is centrally located between Eaglehawk Neck and Port Arthur on the Tasman Peninsula and overlooks the sheltered waters of Little Norfolk Bay.


From here you can explore the history and wild beauty of the Tasman Peninsula. Take short or long bush walks in the Tasman National Park along the highest sea cliff coast in the southern hemisphere or explore the coastline by taking the popular and award winning Tasman Island Cruise eco boat tour; fish, scuba dive, sea kayak or visit Port Arthur just 10 minutes away or one of the many other historic sites on the Peninsula. Indulge your taste buds with the fresh local fare or just fish off the jetty, wander in the gardens and enjoy the grounds surrounding the house.


Relax in our lovely guest lounge and feel free to use our dining room for meals or working in. The included breakfast is a generous and home made buffet and features our own home made jams and marmalades, home made breads, our home made fruit compote, preserved and fresh fruit and soft boiled eggs.


Our climate is tempered by our proximity to the sea so winters are cool and summer temperatures are a delightful average of 25 degrees. Come stay in living history and soak up the beauty of the place - plan to stay at least two nights if you want to do justice to the area.
