Host Info

Host Review Score

Pettit Cottage is a charming holiday home on the main street of Swansea, Tasmania, and within a very easy walk to shops, cafes and beaches. The cottage has a small but delightful cottage garden and is quite private. The cottage is perfect accommodation for families or those wanting their own place close to town with full self-catering facilities and room to move.
I am a farmer and the fifth generation member of our family to be involved farming.-My family settled this area in 1821. On the property we run multi purpose merino sheep, grow seed crops and have an eleven hectare vineyard. My son and his wife now run the farm, my husband and I now being "their workers"!! Our farm is the second oldest continually run family business in Tasmania In spare time i enjoy bushwalking but dont seem to do so much now
There are two beautiful National Parks in the area, beautiful beaches. and wineries to visit. This area was originally farming and to the North of the district- fishing. Sheep and wool now play a smaller part agriculturally with vineyards and seed growing and tourism being the main industries. Swansea is a quaint old fashioned town with some fine old buildings. The Heritage Museum (next to the Information Centre) and the museum at the Barkmill and Bakery are well worth a visit.
