Guests often search for this popular amenity
Blue Gate Cottage is a quaint one bedroom cottage in a bush/rural setting and the perfect place to make yourself at home while exploring the Channel, Bruny Island and Huon Valley - yet it is only 20 minutes for the Hobart CBD. Guest have reviewed the the self-contained cottage as great, comfortable & cosy, clean, unique, ample amenities, thoughtful touches, friendly communication, and private & relaxing.

The space
This lovely cottage is the ideal place to rest, relax, renew, and also a great base to explore the many attractions in the area. Situated on our 5 acre property at the outskirts of Margate it has everything you need including a full kitchen with a fridge, stove and microwave. There is a separate lounge room and in the bathroom there is a shower over a hip bath. The queen sized bed is upstairs, so the cottage best suits couples or singles and is not appropriate for young children. In winter there is a wood heater to keep you warm and cosy. In summer you can sit in the covered sitting area and watch the sunset as you enjoy a nice Tassie wine from one of the wineries in the Huon/Channel area.

With trees, wallabies and natural beauty at your doorstep, this beautiful rural setting is the perfect location to come home to after a day of visiting the many tourist attractions in the Hobart, Channel and Huon areas.

We like living in the country and enjoy the serenity that county life brings. We enjoy travelling but do not get to do it anywhere near as much as we would like. But we do travel to the mainland a few times a year to visit family. I am a North Melbourne supporter and am happy to discuss football, cricket or anything if you want a chat. Tassie is a lovely place to visit so please ask if there is anything we can help you with. My partner Margaret is also available if you have any queries while you are staying at Blue Gate Cottage. We do have a 12 year old British Shorthair cat who may visit. She will be just saying hi as she likes to be near people but does not like being picked up. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy living here.

Otherwise we will leave you to enjoy your stay. For an emergency during your stay, please contact us at any time.
