There is something romantic about a heritage home surrounded by rolling hills and superb gardens. Make your bed and breakfast dreams come true with Hamlet Downs, a historic property that offers a private 2 bedroom residence wing and self-contained country accommodation for up to 11 guests, tucked away perfectly on the Western Wilds route in the renowned Derwent Valley.
Once, 150 years ago, the property was a hop farm, an industry that the Derwent Valley is world famous for. Hamlet Downs is now a popular bed and breakfast homestead that retains much of its heritage look and feel.
Currently being operated as a year-round accommodation and meals destination with plenty on the grounds for guests to explore, including animals both domestic and native (even platypus in the dam), and located close to popular tourist attractions such as The Salmon Ponds, Mount Field National Park and local artisan producers, the property offers an amazing opportunity to create so much more for the creative entrepreneur.
With its stunning gardens, covered archways, a large dam with a viewing deck and plenty of space for a marquee it is a perfect spot to host a wedding or special celebration.
