FRENCHMAN'S RIVER - THE WRITER'S HOUSE

Located in Cygnet, Tasmania

130 Winns Road, Cygnet, Tasmania, 7112

(04) 66 790 142

An enchanting getaway with lovely views, the Writers House at Frenchman's River, Cygnet was once an apple-picker's cottage. Imaginatively re-imaged by designer Andrew Blaxland, this interesting building was where novelist Posie Graeme-Evans wrote two novels, The Island House & The Dressmaker; now it's a delightful self-catering retreat in a cottage garden with long views of Cygnet Bay and the surrounding 200 acre farm. Double-glazing makes changing seasons a joy as does the open fire (supplied by wood from our own forest) while ceiling fans, French doors and bi-fold windows and a vast north-facing terrace means summer is bliss.

A romantic bedroom, eclectic furniture, chefs kitchen (well-stocked fridge and pantry) plus local cheese, complimentary bottle of wine, basket of breakfast provisions and a simple two-course meal for your first night mean you may never want to go outside. If you do, the whole farm is yours to explore and, at sunset or dawn, you might glimpse the platypus in the dam. And at night, you might meet the locals - wallabies, potoroos, spotted quolls - or surprise the Tasmanian devil who lives under the old apple barn. Frenchman's River - beauty, serenity and luxury. Come and stay.
