Enjoy relaxing by the fire and views of the stars at night.

The space
Scarecrow Cottage includes two very cosy bedrooms, living room with open fireplace, combined kitchen/dining, bathroom and a large and tranquil private backyard with native bush garden.

One bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other has a double bed. Due to the age of the home the bedrooms are small.

The whole cottage will be yours. It is a basic and cosy homely setting in a historic cottage, rather than modern luxury hotel accommodation that you will stay in when booking our partly updated 1800s cottage. Best suited to couples and small families looking for a homely environment.

Entertainment includes a TV and DVD player, a small library and some boardgames. Basic cooking facilities are available including full oven, kettle, microwave and toaster.

We have a beautiful fireplace (please bring firelighters and matches) but there is also electric heating should you wish. There is also an older style washing machine which you are free to use.

Portacot available on request (linen not provided for portacot).

If there is anything we can provide for your stay, please let us know and we will try to accommodate.

Where you’ll be

Swansea, Tasmania, Australia

Like all spots on the East Coast, Swansea is a quaint coastal town, with limited opening hours at night. Bring your own supplies, or check out the local eateries early before they close. Stock up on supplies at Sorell if you are coming from Hobart.

Dining options include the Homestead Restaurant at Piermont, the RSL, Artifakt, Saltshaker, and the Barkmill Tavern (amongst others).

We are 5 minutes walking distance from Swansea's main restaurants and shops. Within easy access of two beaches, one being approximately 5 minutes walk and the other being approximately 10 minutes walk from the cottage.

Within easy reach of oyster farms, the berry farm and wineries.

Some of our guests have loved fishing down at the jetty just minutes walk from the cottage.
