The House

Matilda's is run from a twenty five room house, located within the 1850's property of Clifton, which has been a landmark in the Huon Valley since enjoying it's major role in Tasmania's booming apple industry. The house is now situated on five acres of grounds with Mountain River at the lower boundary, and is a true country retreat offering generous accommodation. 

Matilda's Huon Valley Accommodation


Matilda's of Ranelagh is a romantic heritage guesthouse operated from a gracious family home, located in Southern Tasmania's Huon Valley. With grandly proportioned rooms, expansive grounds and charming outbuildings, we offer spacious and comfortable accommodation in elegant and peaceful surroundings, which hark back to a bygone era.


For relaxation and enjoyment we have a comfortable library with an extensive collection of books, a beautiful Drawing Room for tea or drinks, the lovely front verandah for sunny afternoons, garden areas and shady corners to explore and of course - cosy seating in your room for those who prefer to hide away.

We provide personal service and hope your stay with us will be comfortable and memorable. Please call us for any questions or queries you may have.


Our location places us ideally for exploring Southern Tasmania. You will find Matilda's only two minutes from Huonville, thirty minutes from Hobart and at least a hundred years from the rest of the world.


Thirty Reasons

Tasmania is a small island, with short distances between towns and villages, which means you can enjoy quite a lot from one base. Of course, your holiday should be about resting too, so dont overload your itinerary! See 'Thirty Reasons' for some ideas to enhance your stay with us, and we will look forward to welcoming you soon.
