Southern Forest Cottage

We built Southern Forest Cottage with the aim to offer a great base for visitors whilst exploring Tasmania's Far South. The cottage is clad in Celery Top Pine, a native Tasmanian timber. There are two bedrooms, both with queensize beds, the second one with a bunkbed as well. The cottage is suitable for couples, families or friends travelling together. There is one bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. The large deck is great for birdwatching or just relaxing with a glass of wine and breathing in some of the cleanest air on the planet.

The forest and native garden setting provides home for many birds, lizards, pademelons and other wildlife and ensures privacy in a relaxing environment.

The cottage is best suited to accommodate up to 4 adults or a family of up to 6 guests.

Please note: there is no TV reception, limited mobile coverage (only Optus) but we offer slow free Wifi. If you'd like to get away from it all, this is the place for you.

Facilities include - crisp linen - blankets - hot water bottles - bathroom with shower/toilet - toiletries - washing machine - hair dryer - heating - wood heater - iron and ironing board - DVD player with a selection of DVD's - stereo and CD player - games - toys - books - free Wifi (limited) - cot and hight chair available on request - teas/coffees - 4 stove cooktop - microwace - full size fridge/freezer

We live on site and are not far, should you require assistance.
