Frenchman’s River – The Helmsman’s House

Set in its own range of hills overlooking Cygnet Bay, Frenchman’s River allows discerning travellers to escape to a world of beauty, serenity and high-end luxury.
Surrounded by 200 acres of rolling fields and forest yet walking distance to friendly, vibrant Cygnet, delicious local produce and stylish interiors might tempt you to stay inside all day, to cook, read and dream as you enjoy local seasonal fare (berries, apricots and cherries in summer; apples in autumn and mushrooms too – plus fabulous local spuds and garlic, dug in summer to eat in winter).
But if you decide to explore this exquisite region, the lovely Huon Valley, pretty roads wind beside the river past wineries, cheeseries and farm-gate sales. Or you can take the ferry to Bruny Island (20 minutes from Frenchman’s River); or maybe drive south to enchanting Franklin – home to the Wooden Boat Centre – on your way to Tahune AirWalk where you walk through the tops of forest giants and see Huon Pine growing beside the river it was named for. And, if you’re lucky, the Southern Lights ablaze over the bay will welcome you home to your house in the hills above the bay.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
