The Vista - Captains Rest

1 February 2018

One thing I've learned over the years is we can't let the good stuff in life just pass us by. Sometimes we just need to stop, recognise and give thanks to the people and things around us that make us happy.

Julia Ashwood, the founder of The Vista has incorporated this ethos into her daily living. Transitioning from a life in business to founding The Vista. A unique travel destination, with a curation of places, people, and ideas, coming together to inspire your inner explorer. Julia travels with her small family, to destinations that intrigue her adventurous spirit; she then shares her experiences through The Vista Travel Guides. 

Afternoon wine and nibbles on the wharf

Their most recent adventure took them to Tasmania, specifically a little cottage named Captains Rest. Just as the name suggests this space epitomizes relaxation, allowing it's guests to slow right down and enjoy each second.

With the water right outside the front door and a wharf for afternoon picnics, this getaway cottage is the perfect way to escape and unwind from the pressures of everyday life. When Julia approached us and asked if we wanted to be a part of this project, we, of course, agreed! Our Woodchop Blanket, simple yet luxurious, features throughout this guide. Made from 100% Merino Wool, we felt it was the necessary accessory to have in Tassie. Used as a picnic rug when exploring the surrounding beaches or as a snuggly blanket when cuddling up on the couch after a long day of wandering.
