People are drawn to Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula for many reasons. Bush-walking, bird-watching and bike-riding compliment a myriad of coastal and water-based pursuits. You’ll need to stay a while to appreciate the beauty of the iconic Tasmanian east coast, and allow yourself time to relax, unwind and take in the scenery. We can suggest the perfect central location with a touch of luxury… Sheoaks on Freycinet Bed and Breakfast.

Sheoaks… Prepare for Holiday Envy

photos by Dan Fellow

Dan Fellow was the lucky one from Think Tasmania this time. He travelled from his home in Westbury to stay in Coles Bay with Alan and Margaret Morgan. He’s since made us entirely jealous, sharing photos from his holiday album. Sheoaks on Freycinet is clearly a beautiful property with outstanding views. The photos alone though, can’t reveal the warm and friendly reception received from the hosts, including the resident cat! Dan has announced the service and food matched the first-class accommodation and in his usual succinct way, declared his entire stay was “much enjoyed”.


 

Sheoaks on Freycinet was architecturally-designed and custom built to take advantage of the enviable waterfront location. Views over Great Oyster Bay from the deck and sitting room an outstanding highlight, according to Dan. Watching the sun set over the bay while indulging in local seafood and a glass or two of Tasmanian wine… what could be better?

Dine on the Deck: Watch for Whales

Sheoaks on Freycinet is a bed and breakfast property, so we’d be remiss not to mention the food. A fully cooked breakfast is included in the tariff and features local Tasmanian produce when possible. Imagine starting the day on the deck overlooking the ocean, where you could even spot a whale given the right timing and a dose of luck.

Sheaoaks on Freycinet is a tourism award-winning property in Tasmania

With advance notice, guests can request a packed bush-walker’s lunch or even a luxury hamper for a special picnic. Evening meals are available by prior arrangement… but we’re really impressed by the self-catering advice supplied to guests, with suggestions about where and what to buy locally. Again, stay tuned as we will reveal more information about that.


 

Sheoaks is found on the outskirts of the Coles Bay township, only 5kms from Freycinet National Park. Without venturing too far, visitors can walk to local sandy beaches and search for wildflowers and Tasmanian animals. Alan and Margaret can share their in-depth knowledge to keen fishermen and bird-watching enthusiasts. Dan, also passionate about capturing birds with his camera, declared Freycinet a twitcher’s “paradise”.

We could carry on forever about the things to do and tourist attractions of Coles Bay, the Freycinet Peninsula and the wider east coast region of Tasmania. Regular readers would’ve noticed this week’s stories about Winegalss Bay Cruises and The Ugly Duck Out restaurant in Swansea, also part of this familiarisation mission. As great as Dan’s photos may be, there’s nothing like making the journey yourself to see all this in person. Just as the writer will be doing asap (like we said… holiday evny!).
