“One of the best places we've ever stayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We stayed in No. 4. Black Heart Sassafras. Everything was stunning from the comfort to the equipment and provisions to the views over Bruny Island and the Tasmanian peninsula as far as Maria Island and Freycinet. Very private accommodation. Stained glass windows, bathrobes, slippers, a whole range of body and hair products, Nespresso machine with free refills, huge tea collection, eggs, bacon, bread, milk, butter, jams, orange juice in the fridge, a huge private terrace with BBQ, hammock, table and chairs, free laundry area near the swimming pool for private use. An amazing place.

We arrived at Woodbridge Hill Hideaway in sort of a surly mood, following a long drive from and a very bad experience at a highly touted resort in Swansea. This holiday was a milestone (not to be specified) birthday present for my wife, and I was in trouble for my last resort choice. Needless to say, from the moment we opened the door to the cottage, that I was in better standing. Within 15 minutes of being there, and drinking in the absolutely unmatched views of Bruny Island off the balcony and even from the bathroom, we were requesting an additional night added to our stay. Finton and Ruth have done a remarkable job with this property and have really thought of everything.
Some specific special touches:
Fully stocked wine bar with terrific Tasmanian choices; Beautiful terry robes and slippers; windows that open in the bathroom so that you can enjoy the views and the crisp breezes from the spa tub; nicely stocked firewood bin (with kindling) on the porch; very nice gas grill on the deck; incredible stained glasswork (Ruth's creations); unbelievable heavy wood counters and posts; beautiful wood ceiling (and oh yeah, Finton and his team actually milled much of the wood used right there on the property); heated towel rack; luxurious dual shower with large rainfall showerheads; coffee, tea, and expresso options that were wonderful; and did I mention the views? On the last morning we were up early enough to catch the sunrise over Bruny and even saw 4 kangaroos in the clearing off our deck.
The location is perfect if you are planning a day trip to Bruny - only about 10-15 minutes from the Kettering Ferry dock. Also only about 40-45 minutes from the center of Hobart, and I drive slow because of the whole left side of the road thing...
I really wish we didn't live half way around the world, but if ever in Tassie again, we will be back. Great job!!!

Room Tip: Black Sassafras cabin has highest outlook, and best view of the water and Bruny.

My wife and I only live 20mins away from the Woodbridge Hill Hideaway, but from the moment we arrived, we felt like we were in another world.

The location & views are outstanding, and the way the 5 hideaways are designed and arranged gives you the feeling that you're the only people for miles.

The hideaways themselves are beautifully designed & decorated, helping the feeling of being in touch with the bush & nature. The are also very well equipped.

From arrival to departure, we didn't need to check in or visit reception, and as we cooked and ate in our lodge, we were able to focus on being together and enjoy the stay.

This place exceeded our expectations in every way, and we thoroughly recommend it.

We love our trips to Tasmania and Woodbridge Hill Hideaway has been an amazing find. Catherine and Tim have thought of everything you would ever want in these brilliant chalets. The bathroom has to be experienced to be believed... The bath with french doors that fully open out onto the deck whilst looking over the bay enjoying some cheeses and champagne is hard to beat anywhere. The photos don't do the view or the quality of the accommodation justice! We will definitely be back and have bought gift vouchers to here for a number of our friends. The spa products included in the suite were excellent as well - have also bought supplies of these tassie gems as well. Only issue is the curtains are too thin to stop the light streaming in at the crack of dawn!

We recently stayed at Woodbridge Hill Hideaway after not being able to get accommodation on Bruny Island and were glad as it was better than anything we could have imagined. The photos don't do it justice as the cabin itself and the view is just amazing!!!! We had two nights there and wish we had more.
For $250 per night we thought it was very reasonable and well worth it! Very private and everything there you could want. Would regard this as one of the best places I have ever stayed and would recommend this as a must for anyone who visits Tassie!
Can't wait to go back!!

What a wonderful part of beautiful Tasmania. Every detail in this accommodation has been carefully thought out and placed. The coffee maker, milk warmer, hammock, mud face masks, teas,wines and beautiful soaps all appreciated. Magnificent views And even saw a Tasmanian devil drinking at the dam. Well worth visiting the grandewe cheese factory nearby, cheese wonderful and on a warm day the sheep vanilla ice cream amazingly good. You certainly will not be disappointed if you stay at Woodbridge Hill Hideaway

Room Tip: All rooms very private

Our recent accommodation was very special. The Black Heart Sassafras suite offered total privacy and included breathtaking views. The proprietors exuded warmth and generosity in true Tasmanian spirit. The architecture, stained glass and sculptors echoed the sensitivity of the artisans who built it. The guest book revealed many second takings. Highly recommended retreat from seasoned travellers, who do adore Tasmania's natural beauty. Could not get closer to a natural heaven on earth. John and Shirley

Room Tip: The four houses have views to die for.
