The owners of Wingtons Glamping provide an indulgent, unique experience at Clarence Point on the banks of the Tamar River.
The unassuming entry to this boutique glamping experience belies what is located below, and yet it was the catalyst for this 'sea-change' experience for owners Nathaniel Wicks and Graham Kington.
Sick of the bright lights of Melbourne, they relocated to the historic Westwynd Cottage at Clarence Point near the mouth of the Tamar River in the state's north. First purchased in the late 1930s by Nat's great grandparents, Thomas and Eileen Perkins, it has been in his family for four generations.
After lovingly restoring the cottage to its former glory, Nat and Graham set about bringing their dream to fruition – and what a dream it is. Set on the banks of the river amid natural bushland, the three accommodation sites are more than just tents.
They feature queen-size beds with Egyptian linen, antique steamer trunks that cleverly and conveniently conceal an ice box within, European wood fire with copper kettle, small decks and barbecue areas, and your own private ensuite tent with flushing toilet and solar-heated shower.
Everything the modern traveller could want is also catered for, including electric lighting and USB charging hub and bluetooth speakers. My favourite, though, was the mini-projector with a selection of movies, which you could screen on the wall of your tent as you lay back on the bed in comfort.
With the entire Tamar Valley Wine Route and a wide range of local producers on your doorstep, you're able to gather enough supplies on the drive to keep you sustained for days – if you're lucky enough to have the time!
