They've thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Clear creek cottage is perfect for a romantic get away, a girly catch up or even a solo quiet weekend to treat yourself.

My friend and I had an amazing time just unwinding, enjoying the local food provided and relaxing in this cute and quiet cottage. The bath was greatly appreciated and we loved having the option of heaters or the wood fire.

Already planning when to visit again.

Really lovely

  • 5 of 5

Very quaint accommodation in a lovely setting. The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything we needed provided. Lovely big bath. Lots of places to go walking, a creek to play in (take you back to being a kid!), and the whole property is impeccably maintained. The owners are environmentally conscious and part of the property is reserved for wild life, which means that between dawn and dusk there are all manners of Gods Australian creatures in the yard. Its ideally located in the best part of Tasmania.

A perfect week in a prefect place.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The farm was so quiet and peaceful. The cottage was lovely and had everything and more that we could have wanted. We really enjoyed sitting on the BBQ decking in the late afternoons watching the goats in the paddock below.

About Tony Rodd

My wife, Liz and I are a couple of GenX's (one a little more GenX than the other).

We love to travel and have done so extensively, within Australia and over seas. We love nature, the out doors, camping, etc. I am an avid amateur photographer and have found living here a digital photographic wonderland.

From a dew soaked spider web on a crisp Winters morn to our goats (particularly the beautiful kids that arrive each Spring), the bush and the beauty of The is never a dull photographic day here.

As the hosts at Clear Creek Cottage we consider ourselves to be warm, friendly folk who enjoy meeting travellers from all walks of life. We love sharing our experiences and our home with others. We are pretty relaxed and laid back on the surface but still take the business of looking after our guests very seriously. We want your stay with us to be the accommodation highlight of your holiday in Tasmania!

Tony Rodd purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Tony Rodd chose Woodbridge

We came to Tasmania in 2011 seeking a "tree change" we found it! Our previous lives did not entail any experience of living on a rural property so it has been a steep learning curve since arriving here. Thank goodness for YouTube!! We have goats looking after the paddocks, chooks providing us with fresh eggs and we grow fruit and veg including garlic, lot's of garlic!

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful rural location surrounded by rolling hills, native fauna and flora, lush green paddocks and the cool flowing waters of Clear Creek.
