    The hospitality was exceptional from start to finish. Love the area, the walk down to the back of the property with the cute cabin and the open fire which was ready to be lit, we enjoyed that! The rooms were clean, cosy, and comfortable too.
  • Jill
    All of it was lovely, good location to do trips around the Houn Valley, clean room and great host who cooked a very tasty brekkie for us in a room with a view.! Tea and coffee available and local shops close by.
  • Shawn

We’ve been in Dover for 10 years and have spent that time customising our farmhouse into a modern and comfortable bed & breakfast guest house. Delicious breakfast provisions are sourced locally with many ingredients grown or produced on the property. We're simultaneously proud and humbled to announce that in 2019 we were judged by our peers in the Tourism Industry to be the best Bed & Breakfast in Australia having been awarded the Gold Medal in the Hosted Accommodation category in the Australian Tourism Awards. We hope you come and visit and enjoy our hospitality.
Sadly neither of us can lay claim to being a Dover local, however we have both travelled widely throughout Australia and overseas as well as lived abroad and we have chosen Dover above all other places visited in which to put down roots.
A scenic 70 minute drive through the Huon Valley and you arrive at the township of Dover, set between Adamson’s Peak and Port Esperance Bay; Dover is ideally situated as a base for exploring the attractions of the Huon Trail and Far South Tasmania.
