  • Hi, are there sea views at your accommodation
    Hi Not from your room sorry, despite being on top of the hill. If you are specifically after sea views from your room try Edge of the Bay Resort or one of the many holiday houses here.

Modern, comfortable Guest House accommodation in Coles Bay Tasmania. Gateway to Wineglass Bay and Freycinet National Park. King size beds. Free wifi. Netflix and Stan on the Smart TV's. Block-out electric blinds. A guest lounge and covered deck, plus a BBQ, picnic table and fire pit in the garden. Stays of 3 night or more attract a 5% discount We have our own Nano Brewery onsite, and offer Tasting Sessions with the brewer, by appointment, for our In House guests only. If you stay 3 nights we provide a free beer tasting flight for you. We're situated about 7km north of Coles Bay village, in the satellite Coles Bay suburb of Swanwick. We have an acre of land, half of it on top of the ridge overlooking Great Oyster Bay to the South and the Frecyinet Golf Club and the Swanwick Recreational area to the north. It's a peaceful & private property in a semi urban area.
We have lived and/or holidayed in Coles Bay for most of our lives. We have a good knowledge of walks, hikes, local activities, restaurants, fishing spots etc... so ask us what might be right for you.
It's a short drive to the Wineglass Bay walking tracks. Climb to the lookout point to see the view to Wineglass Bay. Head on down to the beach if you're up to it. If not, Friendly Beaches to the north offers the same fine white sand and turquoise waters, with easy access. For the more experienced walkers, why not try Mt Amos or Mt Graham. Ask us, or the National Parks office if it's for you first. Some of the walks can be challenging, so it's a good idea to check with someone before you go. We have a great beach here in Swanwick, with an ever changing sand dune system. There's a boat ramp nearby that you could fish from. For golfers, we are on the Freycinet Golf Course Estate.
