We're happy you enjoyed your stay in Cosy Cottage and liked our farm with the surroundings. We get a lot of children, which enjoy themselves here together with the adults. Thank you very much for the nice review.

We wanted a remote location, surrounded by nature, and a chance to spend long periods of time with horses, and this was everything we expected. Our hosts were gentle and full of information, with kids spending time with the horses before breakfast and after dinner. Proximity to Franklin and Huonville means you could get local produce at cheap prices and...

thank you for your excellent review and description about our place. We do not have Wi-Fi on our place, that is correct. Some mobile phones work at the house and some don't. But there is a phone beside the TV with it's own phone No. and you can ring out and people can ring in without extra charges for that....

We took our 2 children who are under 5yo for a 2 night farm stay. Such attention to detail in the Strawbale cottage. We loved the fire place, spa, excellent farm produced breakfast and beautiful views from the cottage. Having the miniature ponies just outside our window was magical. The children loved wandering through the enchanting gardens, riding the go...

We visited Whispering Spirit with our children (aged 2 and 8 months). The bread, sweets and breakfast provisions left for us were fabulous and delicious! The cottage is homely, comfortable and the fire made it toasty warm. The chickens and miniature ponies made our children's faces light up every morning. Unfortunately we weren't graced with good weather so weren't able...

My husband & I recently stayed 3 nights in the Strawbale Cottage, it was heaven on a stick!! Wish we could have stayed longer, will definitely stay there again when we next go to Tasmania. We would recommend it to anyone. The setting is glorious, the people running the farm are wonderful and it's so reasonably priced.

Our family of four stayed for three nights, but wished we had stayed for longer. We hired a camper for ten day, but should have just stayed at places like this and used a hire car. The highlight for us was picking the multitude of berries at the farm. Thanks for a lovely stay!
