We had a couples (Two couples, mid twenties ) weekend away to Tasmania and stayed at the Tin Dragon trail cottages. Unfortunately I rarely review places but this stay was so good i felt compelled to. The rooms were nice and the kitchen/BBQ area provided means for self catering. The onsite walks are very well maintained and informative. The owners...

The Tin Dragon Trail Cottages (TDTC) are excellent. My husband and I wanted to stay at a place where we could enjoy the beautiful Tasmanian environment. Certainly TDTC did not disappoint. The Ringarooma River is within a minute’s walk from the cottages and beautiful Tasmanian forests are only a few minutes away. For three nights we had a very comfortable...

We spent a peaceful and relaxing two days in the north east of Tasmania at Tin Dragon Cottages. We stayed in Chintock Cottage which was private and very comfortable with an outdoor spa which we used both evenings. Our hosts, Graham and Christine were very warm and friendly and full of local knowledge. Excellent breakfast provisions are included. If you...

We had such and amazing visit staying at the Tin Dragon Trail Cottages. Our visit has changed how we want to plan all future vacations. The location is a little rural, you'll definitely want to rent a car. I live in Florida, and had never driven on the left side of the road. I was intimidated at first, but caught...

The hosts at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages have given a lot of thought to the needs of their guests. They provide a hearty breakfast hamper (which includes their own fresh eggs), and have stocked the self-contained kitchens with a wide range of staples. With so much gourmet food in the region, visitors can explore, purchase fresh produce and then whip...

Tin Dragon Trail Cottages are a great idea and the owners are executing it with passion and commitment. The location is gorgeous and the cottages are tidy and clean with lots of fabulous homey touches. The downside for us is that they weren't that kid friendly with poor indoor outdoor flow and a bit dark when it is cold. I...

Our explorations took us around the trail and we had a wonderful experience - some storm damage did make the path a little diffcult to follow and at one stage almost turned back - however we go there tripping over a couple of Blue Tongued Lizards across our path. The cottage was a 'wow' on arrival - so beautifully presented...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We offer romance, seclusion and privacy in fully self-contained two-bedroom and studio spa-cottages each with river views - situated on a 36 acre bush alpaca farm. Each cottage has a private outdoor dining area with bar-be-que and the studio cottages have an outdoor heated spa. Principles of ecological sustainability are combined with the comforts of a luxurious retreat. Your only disturbance might be from the occasional inquisitive pademelon or soaring eagle. This stretch of the Ringarooma River is favored by fly fishermen. Chinese heritage is celebrated with an interpretation centre, landscape art and walking tracks through historic mining and water races. ... more   less
