If you are considering a trip to/though northeast Tasmania, do yourself a favour and book one of these lovely cottages. We came for the MTB trails and stayed in Fon Hock in early spring, and it exceeded our expectations.
The cottage itself is wonderful - very comfortable bed/couch with lovely little touches (fresh flowers, handmade soap) and an excellent kitchen and pretty backyard area. You also have access to a beautiful little river at the other side of the property, which is a voluntary conservation area. There's also an adjacent farm and we loved watching the alpacas and chicken. The private spa tub is fantastic, it's surrounded by ferns and after a day of riding/hiking, a bubbly bath is simply brilliant. The best is that all this is powered by hydro (and soon solar) electricity!
Graham and Christine were warm and welcoming hosts, and they can be very proud of what they've built here. We wish we could've stayed longer, but for now we'll spread the word and hope to come back soon...More
