Enjoy warm hospitality in the tranquil and picturesque Tamar Valley.

If you are looking for the best accommodation in the Tamar Valley Tasmania – you have found it! Tamar River Retreat holiday accommodation B&B comprises two fully self-contained hillside cottages with panoramic views overlooking the magnificent River Tamar at Kayena near Launceston. This stunning property sits on 2.5 secluded acres of beautiful lawns and established gardens beneath a magnificent giant oak tree (possibly 160 years old), in a lovely quiet and serene location. The homestead is over 100 years old but the guest cottages are modern and up to date offering all of today’s comforts and conveniences.

Being located on the renowned Tamar Valley Wine Route, and close to the iconic Batman Bridge linking the East and West Tamar Regions, Tamar River Retreat is ideally positioned, close to a host of wineries and other attractions. It is the perfect base for enjoying the Tamar Valley region and its many attractions.

Your Tamar Valley holiday retreat accommodation is located only minutes from some of Tasmania’s best wineries, great dining experiences, gourmet food, golf, gardens and galleries. Indulge your love of good wine, good food and good times with your partner, friends or family in our exclusive accommodation. Tamar River Retreat is the ideal getaway retreat or romantic escape.

The property is still known locally as “The Cherry Farm” – a hangover from the property’s past life as a cherry orchard and the rich, juicy cherries that were grown here. A number of fruit trees – including multiple varieties of apples, peaches and pears – echo the area’s heritage and guests are welcome to help themselves to the fresh fruit in season.

Whether you are visiting for a day, a weekend, a week or longer, a warm welcome and spectacular views await you at Tamar River Retreat in the Tamar Valley – “your home away from home”.

Tamar River Retreat provides self-catering bed and breakfast accommodation on the Tamar River in Tasmania. The rural waterfront retreat offers two cottages, the Riverview Cottage and the Cherry Cottage. Both are set on two and a half acres of grounds and established gardens with magnificent views over the Tamar River. Situated 40kms north of Launceston, on the scenic wine route and near the Batman Bridge for easy access to both the East and West Tamar Valley attractions. There are a host of things to see and do in the Region. Beaconsfield is the closest town. A warm welcome always awaits guests at Tamar River Retreat.

Tamar River Retreat is an exclusive and private Bed and Breakfast retreat, offering great value accommodation in two separate, self-contained cottages in the Tamar Valley Tasmania.

Both cottages are modern, spacious and fully fitted out with everything you will need for an enjoyable and comfortable holiday.

You may wish to partake of breakfast or afternoon tea – or have a barbecue – on your private patio and enjoy the spectacular river vista (the sunrise is well worth getting up early for) or take a walk through the property and gardens to nearby Bonnie Beach and fish from the pontoon, or just sit and relax.
