Stone Cottage Inspiration





I don't know about you but I am always running around taking photo's of our holiday accommodation when we arrive, before my 3 year old messes the room up. These stone cottages sit on the shoreline of Swansea on the east coast of Tasmania. We stayed in cottage #14. The cottages are made out of stone and are utterly beautiful. The furnishings are mostly neutral shades which just adds to the coastal ambiance of the place. The log fire is set ready to burn, just light your match! I was so inspired by this little place. Everything was so simple and so wonderful. A jute rug, crisp white sheets, understated lighting and soft throws. Perfect.

  4. Simone you know how much I love brick and stone cottages! After visiting Oatlands you can understand why! Did you make it to Stanley? That is one of my favourite places in Tasmania (apart from Oatlands) It is very special xx
