Tasmania’s newest accommodation experience offers a unique next-generation escape to the seaside.
At Little Beach Co every last detail has been carefully curated and architecturally designed to give guests an unforgettable luxurious stay. Little Beach Co officially opens to guests in late December and is at the prime east coast location of Chain of Lagoons, offering privacy and seclusion with glamping tents and studio pods nestled in amongst the wilderness.
Surrounded by private bushland, granite rock coast and the white sand and crystal waters of Little Beach, you will experience nature on your doorstep.
Owners Paul and Lynne Wilton enjoyed ocean racing between Melbourne and Tasmania. In 2016 they were caught in a bad storm after the Melbourne to Stanley Yacht race. “We couldn’t get back to the mainland, so we decided to make the most of it, hired a car and drove down the stunning Tasmanian east coast,” Lynne said.
“We bought this stunning property at Chain of Lagoons virtually on the spot with the intention of making it our holiday home. But once construction began, we realised that not only we didn’t want to live anywhere else, but our patch of paradise was too good not to share. Our aim is to provide an amazing gourmet experience to help people create unforgettable holiday memories and enjoy everything that makes Chain of Lagoons so special.”
The couples home build attracted such interest they were followed by the popular TV series Grand Designs, for an episode that goes to air on Foxtel in March 2022.
With the onset of Covid-19, they decided to use their time wisely to create a tourism and accommodation business.
A combination of glamping accommodation (in The Seek Society 5m Odyssey Bell Tents) and studio pods along with an architecturally designed bathhouse and communal kitchen, lounge and dining room were conceived and after a protracted period of approvals and tribunal appearances, they are now ready to launch Little Beach Co.
Part of the Glamping Village is the bathhouse, which includes a shower block offering private couples bathing and bathroom amenities.
The outdoor communal area comprises a bolder boulder fireplace located adjacent to the outdoor BBQ kitchen. There are dining areas under the wrap-around verandah that surrounds the rammed earth Barn, which has been converted into the kitchen, lounge and dining rooms.
The Barn is central to the village and is the ideal place to enjoy the company of other guests around the cosy wood fire with a drink from the bar stocked with local products or a house-made Tasmanian platter.
Lynne trained at internationally recognised William Anglis Institute, Melbourne in both cooking and patisserie and will tantalise guests with her homemade pork sausages and terrines, matched with her house-made crab apple jelly and quince paste, served with her freshly baked sourdough baguettes. Paul has been the project manager on the site and has conducted all the extensive construction aspects.
