View from Coningham Cottage

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 4 people at a moderate price.

(Rates for 1 or 2 people - $20 per additional person per night)

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 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

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.

Fabulous location for views and privacy. Very comfortable accommodation.4/5 by , Gold Coast Queensland Thanks Ken and Joy. And thanks for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy. You are welcome back any time!! :-) [manager response]
Coningham Cottage was perfect - peace and quiet,everything we needed was provided by the owners, waking up to see the boats on the water -our idea of heaven!5/5 by ,
What a pleasant surprise we had on arrival. The view through the house to the deck and beyond, is spectacular. We enjoyed many meals on the deck watching the weather change on Mt Wellington and the sailing boats nearby. The house is really well set up and well catered for. The location is ideal for day trips in the region. We loved our stay and hope to return soon.5/5 by ,
Spent 4 fantastic nights. Facilities A1 and the view from the sun-room something to die for! Wish the sun-room view could go home with us as the light was fabulous for craft work. Unfortunately our days were spent enjoying your neck of the woods, so only spent very comfortable evenings at the Cottage. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.PS Had a wonderful stay. Took your suggestion and went on the Bruny Island Cruise ��� fantastic!! Heather and Michael, Wendy and Ray Geelong Vic Nov 095/5 by ,

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at Coningham Cottage. We had such a wonderful time, and really appreciated the serenity of the cottage and Conningham. Our best moment was when we encountered a pod of Dolphins frolicking by the Boat Sheds on the Walk to Conningham beach.5/5 by , QLD
Home away from home, the cottage was spacious and had a peaceful ambience. We left feeling so refreshed. We also had a wonderful display from a family of dolphins. Hope to return soon.4/5 by , VIC
