Meet Tasmania's newest country retreat

Like a little luxury in your life?

Fancy a few days exploring one of the nicest small towns in Tasmania?

How about staying in a beautifully renovated 1930s home with sweeping views over Port Cygnet Bay?

There is room for six or eight people comfortably - and everything has been thought of at Woodland Bay Retreat.

A modern kitchen with all-new equipment. Tick.

A welcome basket of local produce, including a bottle of local pinot noir from Chatto Wines, or Sailor Seeks Horse. Tick.

Big fluffy towels. Tick.

A lovely deck with plenty of space to take in the views and summer sun. Tick.

An outdoor pizza oven. Tick.

A seperate studio with a private games arcade? Tick.  

But wait. There is much more.

There is your own personal gym.

A sauna with room for six people.

A hot tub and a cold tub.

A firepit with seating for taking in the amazing night skies.

We'd planned to enjoy the hot tub, but the changing lights and views at sunset proved mesmerising. 

And the busy little town of Cygnet with its many art galleries, cafes and eateries is just a five-minute drive away should you feel like picking up something to eat - although that would be a pity given the high-tech kitchen equipment at your disposal. 

Woodland Bay Retreat is a Hamptons-style home with a garden, free private parking and free wifi.

The kitchen comes with a dishwasher, an oven and a microwave, as well as little treats like hot chocolate mix and loose-leaf teas.

There are two living rooms and a dining area, three bedrooms, and two bathrooms and for guests with children, the home features an indoor play area.

You are around a 50-minute drive from Hobart and all its attractions - but here you can enjoy silence and remoteness.

The house runs on a solar panel system and all products and amenities are locally and organically sourced.


Woodland Bay Retreat is bookable on airbnb, and, or call 0401 190 606 to speak to the owners, who live locally.
