Luxury, beauty and serenity are yours at Frenchman’s River, where two stylish self-catering couples’ retreats wait for you. Embraced by sky and stars, water and trees, nature enfolds you while good food, peace and soft beds restore your spirit.
The airy one-bedroom, one-bathroom Writer’s House and the sumptuous two-bedroom, two-bathroom Helmsman’s House have been created by the owners, designer Andrew Blaxland and producer Posie Graeme-Evans, as lifestyle inspirations. Creative, bustling Cygnet is just down the hill, but when you return from your rambles, 200 private acres hold the world away.
Glorious views, open fires, opulent bathrooms, cooks’ kitchens, romantic bedrooms, Tasmanian artworks and carefully chosen books delight the senses and the soul. Fridges stocked with seasonal treats – eggs from the farm, local bacon and artisan bread plus abundant fruit, veggies and Tasmanian cheese – nurture heart and soul. Your first night includes a complimentary simple two-course dinner accompanied by regional wine or cider. Free wifi, Netflix and a Bose sound system – and comfy couches! – might mean you never want to leave. And, in winter, the Aurora Australis plays over Cygnet Bay. That’s free as well.
