A cosy, bright and airy self contained millers cottage conveniently located in the pretty rural village of Woodbridge. 40 mins from Hobart. 5 mins stroll to award winning Peppermint Bay Restaurant. Delicious breakfast provisions included in rate.

The space

The Fox Hole is a charming self contained studio style cottage in the heart of historic village, Woodbridge, in Southern Tasmania.

Woodbridge is one of the prettiest small villages in the Channel area and is conveniently nestled along the D'entrecasteaux waterways, abundant with gourmet foods, wineries and stunning natural beauty.

The cottage is open plan, a gorgeous kitchenette with benches made from Tasmanian Blackwood and beautiful Tas oak timber floors throughout.

There is a separate bedroom and bathroom and a pull out sofa bed in the lounge accommodates 2 extra people if needed.

A small courtyard backs onto the garden and a fruit orchard shared by free roaming chooks. Pick some apples and mulberries in season or help yourself to a lime or lemon for your gin and tonic.

Gilbert makes stunning Huon Pine Picnic Planks on the premises and are available for purchase. I also sell them at the famous Salamanca Market on Saturdays.

We had a great stay with Lizz, we felt very welcome, the house was very clean and spacious and lovely decorated. Very easy communication. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the area.

My 10-year old daughter and I had a perfect stay (my second, her first). Lizz' place is quite magical. It is surrounded by greenery, beautifully furnished, everything you could possibly need is provided; from towels to kitchen equipment. Warm, cosy and wondrous. Oh, and there are chickens who are happy to visit.

Perfection! Quiet, cosy and comfortable. A perfect little haven to relax in after a day exploring Bruny Island. The addition of delicious breakfast provisions was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend. Thank you Lizz and Gilbert!

Close to the water and local amenities. Breakfast was very hearty and the accomodation just what we were after. Nice touch was the free ranging chickens that came to visit!

This little studio is in a great location for exploring a lovely part of Tasmania yet only 35 mins to the airport..close to Bruny Is ferry,peppermint bay, the beautiful Cygnet & many other little gems. The "fox hole" was like a home away from home, a real kitchen with a great supply of everything we needed for BF & lunches. Though only one bedroom had a very comfortable Sofa bed in a spacious living area.. well worth the visit , we would highly recommend it.

What a delightful place. Lovely and cosy, plenty of provisions and extras like cherries from the orchard. Very close to Kettering to catch the ferry to Bruny Island or Cygnet or even Hobart. Plenty of room for a couple and room enough for our little granddaughter as well who loved the chickens roaming around and the bird life. A lovely stay. Thanks Lizz and Gilbert.

Hi I'm Lizz
I have been living in Woodbridge with my husband Gilbert and two children for the past 20 years. We are mad about food. I am a pastry chef and currently run a small gourmet food business with my family which we operate from Woodbridge. We are involved in numerous markets and festivals where we sell our produce.
Gilbert is mad about rare species timber and makes and sells stunning Huon Pine cheese boards. He is also very interested in Tasmanian history and has extensive local knowledge.
In the summer we ‘jetty jump’, play around with boats and dive for abalone. The kids love to snorkel and there are plenty of beautiful places to explore.
We love Air BNB. We have met so many interesting people.
