Luxury eco-accommodation set in a secluded forest

For those looking to get back to nature but not compromise on their love of luxury, Aplite House will undoubtedly fit the bill. With views across Moulting Lagoon Conservation Area and neighboured by iconic Freycinet National Park, Aplite House puts its guests in the heart of one of Tasmania's most loved landscapes. This sophisticated stay is surrounded by two hundred acres of secluded forest - hello, privacy - and comes with the added convenience of being located on the Great Eastern Drive. You might have some curious neighbours while you're here too - wombats, wallabies and perhaps even a wedge-tail eagle. 

The buck doesn't stop at its setting though; this stay has design clout too. It was designed by Stephen Geason and comes bedecked with works by local artists and handcrafted furnishings. Take a moment to check out the dining table and bed frames - whittled from Tasmanian Myrtle - and the bathroom basin, the handiwork of a local stonemason and made from Tasmanian sandstone. Throw in the fact that Aplite House runs completely on solar power and the result is an abode that boasts both style and substance.

This is a seriously swanky getaway for four guests, sleeping in one of two spacious double bedrooms, each with private ensuite and spectacular views of the all-encompassing forest - glimpses of the far-off lagoon are visible too. An open-plan layout allows all guests to easily wander between the soft leather couches, the breakfast bench in the kitchen and the home's outdoor spaces. Huge windows fill the house with an abundance of natural light and solar-panels provide a toasty warm when the weather cools. 

The wider Freycinet is at your fingertips with a stay at Aplite House and exploring the treasures of the area should be on the radar for every visitor. It is only a short drive into Friendly Beaches and to Coles Bay or Bicheno. Keen explorers can take on a hike to Wineglass Bay, or gourmet-hunters can hop between the string of roadside stalls, small producers and quaint eateries lining the East Coast.
