Incredibly comfortable and welcoming place. We were there in the heart of winter, but the cabin was so warm and cossie. Well appointed, not cramped, great little kitchen and wonderful bed. Slept like a log.
Terrific location as well, to explore the north east. I hope we can return to have two more lovely days and nights.

After looking for somewhere to stay for a relaxed visit to Tasmania we settled on
Tin Dragon Trail Cottages, booking the 2 night winter getaway.
As this was a birthday treat for myself a hot tub or spa was high on my list, and we were not disappointed.
The beautiful cottages are set well back of the main road, they are surrounded by tree's,with a beautiful creek and gorgeous friendly alpacas.
The very cute warm and cozy cottages contained everything we required for a two night stay, including the cooked meal and hamper we had arranged as part of our booking.
Our hosts, Christine & Graham were very accommodating friendly and attentive and so very helpful with tips on places to go and things to do and see,
I was even left with a beautiful bunch of roses for my birthday!!
The outdoor hot tub being the best feature of our stay,
(sorry Christine your cooking was great but the tub stole the show)
We would highly recommend this beautiful Eco spa retreat to anyone looking to unwind and get away from it all we cant wait to come back!

We stayed over mid (Tassie) winter with 2 little kids, accommodation was great! We found the cottage just fine in pitch black, isolated enough to offer adequate privacy (plus we didn’t want to disturb other guests if our kids cry so it was good). Wood fire was lit and slow cook lamb was left in the cooker for us, red wine on the table all exceeded our expectations. The sun rise over the frosty farm in the morning was certainly a view I will not forget. The hosts were friendly (to us) and offered to show us the farm, which was great for the kids.

Room for improvement:

They spoke of Chinese tourists and how they behave (in an unfriendly way), especially around animals in their farm. Having directed a business offering advice in tourism in the past, we totally understand the concerns some Tasmanian businesses have when dealing with Chinese tourists. This is not their fault. However, being the ‘Tin Dragon Trail’ Cottages, I would have expected them to be a bit more understanding towards those who come with a different cultural background to them. If they haven’t done so already, I would strongly advise the hosts to take a short course on this if they want to be more “Chinese ready”. There are quite a few out there and from past experience,>95% of the businesses found it useful.

We are delighted that Rocky L appears to have enjoyed a positive family experience with us and thank them.

We are confused because we have no record of a young family staying with us in June last year (2016). Furthermore, this reviewer's recollection of their stay doesn't appear to be accurate. Our cottages don't have wood fireplaces and our winter dinner special is only available to couples staying in our studio cottages as part of a "romantic package"(i.e. not provided for family groups).

We don't understand why this reviewer made adverse comments about Chinese tourists. On the contrary to being unfriendly around alpacas, most visitors (including those from China) are friendly and gain great enjoyment from mingling with our alpacas. We thank the reviewer for their concern and advice regarding tourism training.

Spent a fantastic long weekend at Settlers Hut, which we used as a base to do the North-East Rail Trail, as well as the amazing tracks at Blue Derby. Settlers Hut is in a wonderful bush setting (fantastic for the kids to run around in), and we enjoyed it so much we abandoned plans to go out for dinner and instead used the firepit and BBQ for dinner each night (we took advantage of the gourmet BBQ pack on offer for the first night).
We would definitely come back to use Settlers Hut as a base for more mountain biking in the area.
Loved it!

Perfect destination for this purpose..The owners are very well versed in the area and offer a perfect cottage for your stay. Well equiped, full kitchen, very clean and roomy..Highly recommend the Tin Dragon.

Hi Robin. Thank you for telling the world about North East Tasmania. We jump for joy when tourists choose to spend several days to explore our corner of Tassie--rather than a quick drive-through. We are delighted that you were able to see the beautiful and more remote natural places in our region. We hope you have started a trend! Regards Christine and Graham
