Alan and Margaret are excellent hosts, very knowledgable about the area, and helpful in advising their guests. Breakfast was ample and delicious, made to order, and we opted to eat in one evening, and enjoyed a delicious dinner with local wines included. Highly recommended!

I'd give this a 3.5 out of 5. Stayed here for two nights with some friends and everything was OK but not as good as a lot of other B&Bs we have stayed in during our tour around Aus and Tasmania. No TV or tea making facilities in the room. Rooms were neat but no luxuries and no mirror in... More

Apologies that the style of our B & B did not meet your expectations. Maybe you were seeking a 5 star hotel rather than a casual but comfortable waterfront B & B. Each en suite bathroom has a mirror with a dedicated light above it. There’s also a full length mirror in each wardrobe. TV, a wide range of tea/coffee... More

We stayed with Margaret and Alan in December for 3 nights, around Christmas. Before our stay, they had sent us several helpful and comprehensive emails about the house and area, and a long list of interesting things to do around the area. We even received a snail mail packet of brochures for activities in the Bicheno/Freycinet area ahead of time... More

We stayed at Sheoaks for 2 nights. The location is great with a walk to a beautiful beach located at the bottom of the BnB. Alan and Margaret were wonderful hosts and have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the local area. Margaret's breakfasts were top notch. Room was perfectly clean and tidy. Short drive into Coles bay township and the national... More

If you're looking for a clean, cosy, quiet B&B that's within easy reach of most activities around Coles Bay, this is the place to be. The hosts make you feel very welcome right from the start, and have such a wealth of knowledge you can't really put a price on it. The place had lovely views, was five minutes from... More

What a wonderful way to experience the Freycinet area! Alan and Margaret were the best hosts; we felt so welcomed and the food was so delicious. From start to finish, we were well looked after. After booking in, they sent out brochures and information regarding what to see on our way to Coles Bay from Hobart. When we arrived they... More

Great position-quick walk to the beach. We had the room at the end of the corridor. Clean, comfotable and quiet. Really enjoyed the visitors' lounge. Alan had the fire running when we arrived back each day and kept it running while we relaxed. Meals are all highly recommended. We had a superb dinner with the hosts on the day we... More

From when you first arrive until you leave, everything is positive. The bedrooms are conveniently located near the carpark. No need to negotiate your way through the house. The rooms, including en suite, are comfortable, warm and clean. The design is such that the guest rooms are separate from the main house. This provides privacy, if required. There is a... More

we stayed four nights at the B&B as we wanted to have time visiting the park at our leisure. The B&B is located outside of Coles Bay and therefore outside of the park. only one lodge is located inside and the choice around Coles Bay is limited. There are of course the extreme options on both sides of the luxury... More

Several explanations ... Coles Bay is a straggly village, including the area where Sheoaks is situated. It’s surrounded by various sections of Freycinet National Park. The Park begins almost when you turn onto the Coles Bay Rd (the C302) although it is interspersed with parcels of privately owned land. Your bed was made daily although the linen was not changed....

We stayed 2 nights at Sheoaks B & B as part of a motorcycling tour around Tasmania. Our stay here was a real highlight, due to both the spectacular surrounds and Margaret and Alan's hospitality. Keeping off the roads from dusk meant we were able to share an exceptional meal with the hosts on the first evening. Margaret has a... More
