Description of our house
Our guest cottage is cosy and comfortable rather than large and luxurious. It has all you need for a pleasurable and agreeable stay. The brick cottage has one good sized bedroom with queen bed,walk in robe, a bathroom with shower,vanity basin and heating if required, separate toilet, laundry and rather large open plan kitchen/lounge/dining room. In a corner of the lounge room is a single bed. This area is warmed by a slow combustion wood fire in cooler weather. It is situated on 10 acres of green pasture and so it is quiet and private, with very friendly neighbours not too far away.Our main house is also on the property. The cottage has a serene atmosphere with a spectacular view of a beautiful waterway. The overall setting is most charming and ideal for a restful and enjoyable holiday.

= marks the location of this home
Our property is in a picturesque rural area of the clean, green state of Tasmania. It overlooks the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, a beautiful waterway,and is surrounded by distant timbered hills. It is a quiet, private and peaceful location about 40 minutes drive south of the charming little city of Hobart, with its world class restaurants,markets,galleries, shops and historic buildings. About 7 minutes drive from our home is a post office, general store, petrol station,and a tasteful building encorporating a quality restaurant/bar/providore,called Peppermint Bay, situated by the water. The area is renowned for its outstanding wine and local foods - berries,apples,oysters,crayfish(tastier version of lobster),potatoes,cherries,cheeses, scallops,fish etc. Within easy driving distance are many attractions and activities - fishing,boating,sailing,bush walking,forests, picturesque beaches, bays and waterways. It is an ideal location for people who would like to relax in an unpolluted and pristine environment, yet is reasonably close to all the amenities we expect of modern life. Australians,especially Tasmanians, are easy going friendly people.
Something about ourselves
Having travelled and searched throughout Australia we chose Flowerpot in Southern Tasmania to live. We retired(somewhat early) here a few years ago and are totally happy with our choice and lifestyle. We are a husband and wife team, Tony and Margaret, who were teachers in our dim, dark past. These days we enjoy gardening, fishing(Tony especially loves fly fishing for trout),reading,cooking,camping,bush walking,cultural pursuits,relaxing and naturally, travelling - work is a distant memory! We are very house proud,clean and tidy, and would be the same in your home. We enjoy entertaining and are often booked out with visitors wanting to return to this beautiful part of the world.
