Pumpkin Cottage is one of our delightful Farm Cottages located adjacent to the convict built Farm Village. Overlooking the English style countryside and only a short walk to the Macquarie River, renowned for its excellent trout fishing, this cottage is the perfect spot to relax.

Contructed from recycled materials and featuring many traditional convict building techniques this one bedroom cottage accommodates a queen bed and single bed in the bedroom and a fold out sofa in the lounge. Pumpkin is located approximately 50m from Brickendon’s World Heritage Farm Village so make the time to explore the buildings of the village and also meander along the Brickendon and Woolmers Convict Farm Walk to Woolmers Estate (50 min one way). Time is also needed to wander the Heritage Gardens of Brickendon a short walk from your cottage. Fabulous 180 year old trees provide a wonderful backdrop to the delightful gardens and Georgian homestead.

Pumpkin Cottage is located alongside Pea in a Pod Cottage and Sweetcorn Cottage. If you have a group travelling, these cottages are ideal as you will all be able to enjoy separate cottages alongside each other. Gas barbecues are supplied so perhaps you could wander down to the Macquarie River (200m) and catch a trout for dinner (seasonal dates and licences apply) or maybe pick up a delicious local steak from our Longford butchers and enjoy some of Tasmania’s finest produce.


Pumpkin Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with oven/stove, small fridge, microwave, tea and coffee facilities, cutlery and crockery and a bathroom with all linen and a shower over a high step, allowing little ones to be bathed after a busy day on the farm. A wood heater in the lounge and electric heaters and blankets will keep you warm and cosy and the verandah is the ideal spot for a glass of Tasmanian wine after a day of enjoying Northern Tasmania’s delights. Hearty breakfast provisions are included.
