and the Tamar River Retreat
Tamar River Retreat is still known locally as "The Cherry Farm". Large, delicious, black cherries were grown on the property before the farm was re-located. The packing sheds are now transformed into the comfortable "Cherry Cottage" for tourist accommodation.
You may wish to partake of afternoon tea on your patio or in the gazebo and enjoy the spectacular river vista or take a walk through the property to Bonnie Beach and fish from the pontoon or just sit and relax.
Tamar River Retreat is situated on the scenic Tamar Valley Wine Route - just follow the signs to the many vineyards, most with cellar door sales and several with their own restaurants.
Being close to the unique Batman Bridge, which is the only bridge over the River Tamar, you are conveniently located to explore both sides of the beautiful Tamar Valley.
The area was previously called Richmond Hill but is now Kayena - aboriginal word for 'tongue", very appropriate as Kayena is a peninsular into the Tamar River.
Your hosts, Jeff and Pam Thorpe, bought the property in 1999 and look forward to sharing their piece of paradise with you
