Established in 2016, the award-winning Rustic Hut Bush Retreat has the capacity to provide, at the very least, a more-than-healthy supplementary income to the farm; or if run to a higher capacity and exercising value-adding hospitality options, a significant primary income.

The cabins include the ‘Country Hut’, which sleeps four (one queen and two singles), the ‘Valley View’, which sleeps six (one queen and four bunks), the ‘Mountain View Spa Hut’, which sleeps two (one queen and corner spa), and the ‘Farm Hut’, which sleeps four (1 queen and two singles) plus has wheelchair access.

These cabins are simply outstanding and demonstrate the care, fastidious attention to detail, and vision of the vendors. The native timbers and timberwork, along with the use of traditional farming artefacts as features throughout the cabins and guest areas, creates an ambience combining yesteryear with more modern creature comforts.

Set on a working farm, guests are also offered unique experiences such as daily milking of the house cows and making butter and other produce.

In the brief time since their establishment, ‘The Rustic Hut Bush Retreat’ has received numerous tourism awards for the vendors in recognition of their achievements, including a silver Tasmanian Tourism Award for unique accommodation in 2018. Qantas ranked it in the ‘top-six prettiest farm stays’ in Australia in 2019.

On top of the farm-stay business, the property includes a 205-square-metre brick veneer home (circa 1980) which captures scenic views over farmlands of Bass Strait and comprises three bedrooms and one family bathroom, spacious country kitchen and dining area that opens to a family lounge area, and a large games/rumpus room that previously hosted a pool table and bar area. All bedrooms feature built-in robes. During the winter and cooler months, the home is warmed by a fan-forced Saxon wood heater.

The home also features leisure and entertainment areas annexed to the residence which doubles as, and include, reception areas for guests. It also provides options to add catering services in an expanded operation.

A rustic outbuilding is utilised for private purposes as well as a guest entertainment and socialising barbecue and events area and is capable of catering for moderate size and intimate functions including weddings.

Set on gently undulating slopes with a predominantly northern aspect in the lee of the Dial Ranges, which form a backdrop to the setting of the cabins, the property is divided into 17 main paddocks of approximately two acres each, along with a series of smaller day paddocks complete with shelters for horses.

The remainder of the property comprises native bush (including walking trails), providing invaluable shelter for livestock to be fed fodder during winter months. Stock water is reticulated with options from tank and the farm bore to concrete water troughs in all paddocks.

The walking trails lead from the property into the Dial Ranges, making them ideally suited for hiking, mountain-biking or horse-riding enthusiasts. Within a 10-minute stroll from the cabins through the native bushland are well-marked paths to McBrides Creek and to nearby waterfalls.

There's also an additional utility shed with an area that has also served as house cow milking parlour and shearing area but could equally be used as a wash bay area for mountain bikes or simple undercover parking for recreational vehicles.

Cattle and sheep yards adjoin the utility shed. Barns include a 300-round and 800-small-square capacity storage for fodder.
