A glamorous take on camping in the idyllic Derwent Valley

Property reviewed by Stephanie Vigilante on Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Nestled on the banks of the Derwent River, this collection of glamping tents calls one of Australia’s first truffle orchards home. Wander down the timber boardwalk to your private safari-style tent, pushing back the canvas to reveal an elegantly rustic interior. Even ardent non-campers will be won over, as each tent features a king bed, draped fabric detailing and a large ensuite, fitted with a handmade wooden bathtub. 

The tent’s canvas exterior is the only sign of ‘roughing it’ you’ll identify as you make the most of the luxuries on offer. Sip a latte made from the in-tent coffee machine, indulge in premium local wines and sink into that spectacular tub. Each of the tents has a private riverfront deck, so you might be tempted to arrange for drinks to be delivered, allowing you to do nothing but recline on one of the sunloungers and look out across that beautiful view. 

TVs have purposely been left out of these stylish abodes, giving guests more time to recharge, or head outdoors to take up one of the activities available in the surrounding area - kayaking, fly-fishing, rafting and swimming in the river. Once you have worked up an appetite, head to the dining room to replenish your energy stores. All meals are served at set times and visitors are encouraged to share tables with their fellow guests. Expect buffet breakfasts and daily-changing dinners, all using local Derwent Valley produce. The Lodge also has a guest lounge, a bar and timber deck. Pick out one of the games on offer in the lounge, choose a read from the bookcase or chat with some new-found friends by the fireplace. 

As your home among the gumtrees, Truffle Lodge is the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle. Cue the serenity.
