Ridgeline Pottery is all about contemporary life. Designed by award winning architect for artist potter Ben Richardson and his partner Peta, the house reflects their response to this dramatic coastal location "a place of eroded cliffs, refracted ocean swells, rock stacks and the linear natural and human patterning of the tidal zone". You can eat from Ben's pots in your kitchen, visit the showroom attached to the pottery and see his amazing wood-fired kilns as well as watching him work. Now you have the opportunity to experience this fantastic space - come and stay in the home of a maker where art, aesthetics, food and environment come together. The apartment styled accommodation is self contained and private. The local Lauderdale store has a wonderful variety of fresh local produce, with a deli filled with fresh meats, breads, cheeses and ready to cook meals. Create a wonderful meal in the modern stainless steel kitchen, or arrange for one to be provided by your hosts. Relax and unwind with a selection of Bream Creek wines and Tasmanian beers. You'll find breakfast provisions in the fridge and dry pantry.
The South Arm peninsula is only just being discovered by visitors to the state. It is so close to Hobart, directly opposite on the other side of the Derwent River, 25 minutes from the CBD. There are literally ten beaches within ten minutes of Ridgeline. Decide whether you prefer to walk, swim or surf, then check the wind direction and tide. Now select your beach, it really is that easy. Just 20 minutes to the Coal Valley wine region and 20 minutes to the gateway to Port Arthur (90 minutes) or the beautiful east coast. A visit to MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art - the world's largest private art collection - is a must. It's a fantastic convergence of style and form, of masterpieces of modern art, by some of the world's most controversial artists. Deep in the earth, carved into the rocky banks of the Derwent River, the structure itself is a masterpiece. And it's free.
