At MEREDITH HOUSE great service never went out of fashion making it the perfect place to relax on the East coast of Tasmania. Built in 1853, heritage listed, colonial Meredith House and Mews has 11 rooms in total. Upstairs in the house there are six ensuite Queen bedrooms; 3 have fantastic views across Great Oyster Bay to Freycinet Peninsula.

We have a comfortable guest lounge with real wood fire (in winter) where you can relax with a complimentary glass of Port or Sherry, or choose something from our extensive Tasmanian wine list which offers the best of locally produced, cool climate wines.

At Meredith House we believe a great Bed and Breakfast should provide two essentials, a great bed and a great breakfast! Our guests tell us that we serve the best breakfast in Tasmania, so to start your day the right way a full cooked breakfast is included in the room rate. We use the best, fresh Tasmanian produce and offer an extensive range of options. We are also able to cater for people with specific dietary requirements, such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten free diets or lactose intolerance. We stock soy milk, lactose free milk and gluten free foodstuffs - just let us know on your booking form so that we can better meet your needs.

In the centre of town, the house sits on a hill overlooking Great Oyster Bay. From the veranda and queen bed rooms there are sweeping views of the Freycinet Peninsula. Surrounding the property are beautiful landscaped gardens with, lawn areas, fruit trees, native and exotic plants. You may like to feed our resident, hard working chooks. We are centrally located for restaurants, shops and services.

We are accredited annually with the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania, which is your assurance of a quality business, we also offer our personal assurance of great service, comfort and hospitality. Just kick back and relax. Winner of the award that matters, voted for by YOU, our guests, The Peoples Choice Award at the Tasmanian Tourism Awards 2006.

   Nearby Attractions

Winner of the 2007 Australian National Tidy Towns Award, beautiful Swansea is sited centrally in the Freycinet Coast region on the touring route known as 'The East Coast Escape', and is the only historic listed coastal town in Tasmania; it retains many old buildings from the time of first European settlement. Meredith House is one of them. Close to all amenities and located a short 3 minute walk from the beach. Many of our guests take the walk around Waterloo Point for the stunning ocean views across to Freycinet and The Hazards.

Eating out in Swansea has got even better with the opening of TRELLIS and THE BANC. The newest eatery in town Trellis offers lunch, wine tasting and a bottle shop. At THE BANC, Chef John T Bailey brings his culinary expertise to Swansea, along with great service from wife Lee Bailey and the team; it is a fantastic venue, serving beautiful local produce from an imaginative and delicious menu. You will probably want to stay at least two nights in order to visit both of these fantastic restaurants; we are happy to make reservations for you just call us or indicate your dining preference on your booking, we can even email you the menus. Wherever you choose to eat in Swansea you can be assured of great Tasmanian food and wine.

If you want to do a little shopping call at Bear Cottage Crafts on Franklin Street, here you will find an extensive range of gift items, craft supplies and, of course, bears. A short walk along the street is Gallery one-nine, fantastic imports from around the world; an eclectic mix of prints, fabrics, jewellery and decorative wares makes this a 'must do' when visiting Swansea, it's worth a visit just to meet owner Suzanne. Newly opened 'Dos Vagabundos' offers a range of imported wares & great South American items.

1 km south of Swansea is Kates Berry Farm, with stunning views, fresh berries in season, homemade ice cream, jam and preserves - you've just got to go!

Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet National Park are a 45 minute drive away. At Coles Bay you will find FREYCINET SEA CRUISES who operate a morning cruise around the Peninsula to Wineglass Bay, and an afternoon cruise around Schouten Island. Rastus the dolphin spotting dog (honest)is always on board, and Duncan, Irene and the crew offer great service and an informative journey. Prior booking is recommended.

Maria Island is a former convict station and settlement off the coast between Orford and Triabunna; a daily service operates to and from the island departing at 9:30 and returns 4.00 p.m. You will need to take your own provisions, or we can supply you with a picnic pack, as there are no amenities on the island, just pristine walks, undisturbed nature and fascinating wildlife. While you're in Triabunna visit Sufi's Craft Shop, where it is Christmas all year round; she also makes a fantastic Devonshire style Cream Tea. Giraween Gardens is another popular vistor stop.

On the way to Freycinet peninsula you will pass six wineries, Bishops Rock, Coombend, Milton, Springvale, Craigie Knowe and Freycinet; each have cellar door tasting and purchasing facilities. If you are driving north from Hobart why not stop at Darlington vineyard in Orford, great views of Maria Island and stunning wines.

Or you may just want to take it easy, sit on our verandah, or in the garden and relax. We have an extensive wine list offering the best of Tasmanian vintage.

The Freycinet Coast is yours to EXPLORE, INDULGE and ENJOY. It offers a vast range of tourism attractions whatever your age, gender or interests, in fact, the most frequent comment we get is 'one night was not enough!"
