About this listing
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 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.

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.

Interaction with guests
While we like to respect your privacy during your stay, we are happy to pop up with extra provisions if needed.
No Smoking inside but outside in the garden is fine.
Please turn off the heater when the studio is unoccupied.
Please turn off lights when not in use.
We recycle - Please use recycle tub under sink for all your empties.
We use biodegradable detergents to wash all foxhole linen & towels. We do not iron our bed linen but instead they are line dried in the fresh country sunshine !!
Please take off shoes inside The Fox Hole as there is often wallaby and chook poo around the entrance. It would also be really great if the dishes could be washed, rinsed of soap in hit water and left to drain in the dish rack.
General tidying up would be greatly appreciated.
Cancel up to 24 hours before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

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.
