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.

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”.
