Hamlet Downs Country Accommodation

Apartments

Nestled in the Derwent Valley, at the foot of Tasmania’s Central Highlands, is our lush, green, tranquil ‘Hamlet Town’ of Fentonbury and at its heart, you will find the serene and picturesque Hamlet Downs Country Accommodation – Host Steve and Trish welcome you to come and stay and escape, relax and rejuvenate.

With three accommodation options and all the facilities you need, you can choose the private, peaceful farm stay experience, or if you prefer, an action-packed interactive stay filled with activities.

At Hamlet Downs Country Accommodation we offer an à la carte breakfast menu and in-house signature dining options and now 5 Course Burmese French Fusion Long Table Lunches matched with local wines and ciders every second month.

Trish is passionate about food and draws from a wealth of experience in the food and beverage industry, so you can be assured the menu will be diverse, tasty and delicious! Ethically produced local farm produce will be at the heart of the Hamlet Downs food journey, standing by the ethos of good, clean and fair.

If relaxing and just being is your thing, why not spend the day exploring Hamlet Downs’ 36 acres of serenity, say hello to our resident Alpacas and sheep, enjoy watching the pigs potter and dig about, or see if you can spot our local platypus in the dam.
