Description

"Helvetia Swiss Retreat was a delightful home base for our self-drive holiday in Northern Tasmania. We stayed there for three days and explored the rich array of spectacular natural features which are all within a drivable radius. On the road in, you get a grand view of Mount Roland. Nearby is Lake Barrington, Devils Gate Dam and at Mole Creek there is the Alum Cliffs, Trowunna Wildlife Park and limestone caves. About one hour away is Cradle Mountain and Liffey Falls (simply majestic). Three days was not long enough to see it all!.....This is boutique accommodation on a budget. While it is not modern, it is spotless, has all the comforts of home and is brimming with retro charm. At less than half the price of everything else we could find within reach of Cradle Mountain, we feel lucky to have found Helvetia and we were hesitant to share our discovery but we think it does deserve more recognition on the Internet"

......For meals, you can stock up at the Sheffield Supermarket and then self cater using the full kitchen. You could easily not leave for days-on-end and just enjoy the solitude. There are other culinary options: Sheffield has two bakeries, an old pub and one or two take-away and pizza places. Further afield there is a honey farm at Chudleigh, more cafes in Deloraine, and the Elizabeth Town Cafe, well worth visiting at any time of the day. Helvetia would only suit travellers with a car. It is on a farm, 5-10 minutes from the small town of Sheffield and is entered via an unsealed driveway. It is configured as a studio with the kitchen, dining, lounge and beds all in one big room. It has one double (not queen-size) bed and two singles which means it would be best for a couple or a very small family who can survive without privacy from one-another. Budget honeymooners should consider it. A small group of friends looking for backpacker accommodation would also love it. However, it would not be ideal for two couples. The farm animals are friendly and can come up to the window at night and rub on it, which we loved but others may not. The retreat’s manager lives 100 metres away in a separate farm house and doesn’t bother you.
