The Fox Hole is a charming self contained studio style cottage in the heart of historic village, Woodbridge, in Southern Tasmania.
Woodbridge is one of the prettiest small villages in the Channel area and is conveniently nestled along the D'entrecasteaux waterways, abundant with gourmet foods, wineries and stunning natural beauty.
The cottage is open plan, a gorgeous kitchenette with benches made from Tasmanian Blackwood and beautiful Tas oak timber floors throughout.
There is a separate bedroom and bathroom and a pull out sofa bed in the lounge accommodates 2 extra people if needed.
A small courtyard backs onto the garden and a fruit orchard shared by free roaming chooks. Pick some apples and mulberries in season or help yourself to a lime or lemon for your gin and tonic.
Gilbert makes stunning Huon Pine Picnic Planks on the premises and are available for purchase. I also sell them at the famous Salamanca Market on Saturdays.

Definitely a lovely little cottage. Modern and stylish, very comfortable and spacious (we travelled with our toddler) and great provisions. Hosts were lovely and helpful.
One point to note is that this is a converted flat in a backyard - a very lovely one, but we were a little surprised that it was not more private (just a lattice screening front door from the house in front). We were expecting a more rural property given the description of orchards, roaming chickens, etc. and we were after that secluded feeling. It is winter so the half dozen fruit trees in the backyard were obviously bare which I imagine would be much prettier at other times.
It is definitely in a great location in terms of convenience, is close to Cygnet and the Huon trail and we could walk to the water (and a playground for our toddler) which was lovely. Would recommend if you are touring around and using it just as a base, very convenient and comfortable.
The Fox Hole was wonderful! We based ourselves here for 2-3 days, enjoyed bruny island and Woodbridge/surrounds. The studio is beautifully furnished, comfy bed, breakfast was devine and the kitchen has everything you need. The apples and lemons were yummy too! Thanks lizz!
The Fox Hole was a very stylish, comfortable and well equipped studio in a gorgeous setting just south of Hobart. The breakfast supplies were great and a there was a delicious apples on the tree out the back. Lizz was very friendly and accommodating. Thanks!
Our stay at The Fox Hole was great. It is a gorgeous cottage, modern, very clean and comfortable. Eating delicious apples straight off the tree was a treat and we really enjoyed the breakfast spread too. Lovely to walk around the waterfront and so close to Peppermint Bay, perfect for our visit. Wonderful hosts, highly recommend.
A great place to stay - very comfortable and lots of character. Very well located to explore the Huon Valley and surrounds. Lizz is a fantastic host.

Great accommodation, fantastic breakfast provided, the apricots in the orchard were the best we've had ever! Lovely location as well and quiet. Will recommend to others
The foxhole was very comfortable and our host Lizz made sure that we had everything we needed. Thanks again!
The Fox Hole is absolutely delightful! My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast provisions were so lovely and fresh. I loved having chooks strolling about the yard as well. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Fox Hole and a trip around the Huon Valley.
We spent the last two nights of our Tasmanian adventure at The Fox Hole - what a wonderful stay. The cottage was lovely with attention given to very possible detail, right down to the superb breakfast provisions. The cottage surroundings and local area are picturesque. Plenty or as little to do as you wish and a very easy (and quick) drive for us to the airport on our departing morning. Lizz is a fabulous host ... we could not resist purchasing a bag of her delicious granola and one of Gilbert's beautiful Huon pine picnic planks. This was the first time we have used 'airbnb' - will definitely use the site again. We didn't want to leave The Fox Hole and could not recommend it highly enough.
