Holiday Rental House
Serene and Peaceful Coningham is on a small peninsula, 25 minutes south of Hobart. Situated between Snug and Kettering, Coningham is popular area with a small sandy beach that has excellent safe swimming. Historically it has been a popular holiday/day trip destination for Hobart residents and now it is a mix of permanents, many of whom commute daily to the city and “shacks” for the weekenders and school holidays. The north facing perspective features spectacular views of Mt Wellington and extra warmth on sunny days. Coningham Cottage is virtual waterfront (limited access) and provides top quality accommodation for up to 5 people at a moderate price.

Situated between Snug and Kettering, Coningham is popular area with a small sandy beach that has excellent safe swimming. Historically it has been a popular holiday/day trip destination for Hobart residents and now it is a mix of permanents, many of whom commute daily to the city and “shacks” for the weekenders and school holidays. The north facing perspective features spectacular views of Mt Wellington and extra warmth on sunny days. Coningham Cottage is virtual waterfront (limited access) and provides top quality accommodation for up to 5 people at a moderate price. The cottage was originally built in the early 1940s, and was one of the very few homes in the area that survived the devastation of the 1967 bushfires which destroyed nearby Snug and surrounding houses. We have made a series of tasteful renovations over the last 15 years, which have resulted in the “cottagy and rustic” feel, but with modern facilities to ensure comfort and convenience for all who stay here. Fully self contained, the cottage is set up for a short weekend break or an extended holiday. All you’ll need is your food and your favourite “tipple”. The kitchen has both gas and electric cooking facilities and a gas heater takes the “sting” out of the crisp early mornings. The large lounge/dining room has a very efficient wood burning stove and a ducting system takes extra heat to the front bedroom. The view from the deck over North West Bay is a striking feature and it draws you to the sunroom and deck when you first enter the house. The double glazed sunroom onto the deck is cozy no matter what the weather, and is a great place to spend reading, snoozing or even catching glimpses of dolphins or shearwaters (mutton birds). Local features such as Coningham Beach, Snug Falls, Kettering Marina and Hotel are short drives away, whilst the Huon Valley, Peppermint Bay, Bruny Island, the Tahune Airwalk, Dover, Kingston and Hobart, amongst others, provide a range of destinations to explore. Local shops and restaurants in Snug, Margate, Kingston and Woodbridge cover a wide range of choices and tastes for your selection. The wider Channel area is blessed with wine and food outlets unique in Tasmania – vineyards, cheeses, cherries, stonefruits, berries, apples, mushrooms, ciders, quality meats, seafood, oysters and more! Such local features are highlighted in the Huon Trail brochure and at huontrail.org.au There is a lot to see and do in the area and Coningham Cottage provides a delightful base and a pleasure to 'come home to' after a day exploring this lovely corner of Tasmania.

This was the perfect spot for our first days in Tasmania. Conveniently located not too far away from Hobart and the airport but in a very quiet and rural setting, near to the waterfront with a spacious interior and a wonderful garden.

I loved this cottage so much. Watching the river and the abundant bird life in the garden was just beautiful. Really wish I'd booked a longer stay. I hope to be back again soon.

About the neighbourhood
Thirty minutes south of the capital city of Tasmania, Hobart, Coningham Cottage overlooks NW Bay and on up to Mt Wellington. Mardon Lane is a quiet lane, a no through road and used only by locals, so there are no traffic problems. The cottage is close to Bruny Island, the Huon Valley and the southern region of Tasmania with its wilderness adventures. Yet it is also only a short drive to the city, two hours to Port Arthur, Richmond (both historical centres) or to wonderful National Parks.
