Woodbridge Hill Cottage

This Norwegian style cottage is set in secluded surroundings and is perfect for that very private holiday where the only sounds you will hear are the wildlife.

The gardens around the cottage have been extensively planted with both Australian and Exotic plants and the birds, including Blue Wrens, small honey-eaters, Robin Red Breasts, Wattle Birds, Owls, Parrots and on occasion our resident Wedge-tailed Eagle will delight you with their comings and goings.

Other wildlife includes Wallabies, Potoroos, Bandicoots, Echidnas, Possums and a recent visit to our pond and creek by an elusive Platypus.

While walking along Garden Island Creek at night-time, torch in hand, you may spot our resident pair of ring-tailed possums sitting in the overhead branches.

Beautiful environment, peaceful stay

  • 4 of 5

Woodbridge Hill is set in a beautiful, peaceful picturesque environment. Driving up to the cottage you are rewarded with some of Tasmania's finest views. Upon arriving to the cottage travellers will be met by the resident Pademelon 'Poppy' that resides in the adjacent forest. The cottage itself is delightful, cute and cosy, despite probably having been built a century ago. The cosy woodfire kept us warm on the typical Tasmanian chilly nights and equally cool mornings. The house is fully self contained and can sleep up to six. A basket of delicious goodies were left for us by the owners, a very nice touch. There is ample walking tracks in the area and lots of exploring to be done by children making this place the perfect all rounder. Also perfect if you are looking for a place to just relax and recharge.

Owner's Response: Dear Jessica, Thank you very much for your lovely review and trust that you had a great time at Fat Pig Farm. Alan had the opportunity to meet Mathew, Ross and Nick a few years ago and we have both enjoyed watching their progress over the past couple of years with their various ventures in Tasmania. The 60 acre property at Woodbridge Hill Cottage is very much a work in progress. We hope to introduce various farm animals next year, with Permaculture practices to be put to good use, starting with the creation of a food forest. Kind regards, Anne & Alan.

Tranquil place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous location. Nice place to get away from it all. The little extras like bread and milk was fantastic, plus the fireplace being ready for use was a added bonus. The owners certainly do everything possible to ensure your stay is relaxing and enjoyable. The visit from Poppy (wallaby) and friends was a extra treat. Loved it .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We also love the visiting wildlife and their antics. Lots of very small pademelons just out of their pouches just now, great to see that they realise it is a " safe haven" for their visits. Cheers Anne and Alan

A very special place

What a wonderful way to experience the bush in Tasmania. The location is excellent; a place where you can escape from everything.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was magical and very private. Well provisioned and large enough in size. Constant birdsounds and wallabies to be seen. The cottage exceeded our expectations.
