Pioneer Cottage is situated only thirty minutes from Hobart at number 20 Pioneer Avenue in the heart of historic New Norfolk, a small country community built along the gorgeous Derwent River. This beautiful three bedroom home was originally built in 1946 and has been lovingly restored in the style of that era. All the furnishings are cosy, comfortable, luxurious and extensive. There are magnificent views of the mountains and the beautiful Derwent River from the house and its gardens, which is fully fenced and has raspberry bushes and numerous fruit trees that we encourage guests to enjoy.

Only a short walk from the house you can stroll through the beautiful parks along the Esplanade, right beside the Derwent river. There are numerous walks or bike rides you can take along the river and they truly all are beautiful. The house is only a two minute walk from the heart of New Norfolk where you will find bakeries, supermarkets, a butchers, cafes and restaurants as well as three historic pubs and Tasmania’s oldest Anglican Church, St Matthews. The town of New Norfolk is also a mecca for antique collectors with more than eight excellent antique shops scattered around the town. If sightseeing is on your agenda, New Norfolk is the gateway to the Derwent Valley with Mt Field National Park and its lovely bush walks and waterfalls only forty minutes away.
