Very friendly staff, and clean cabin. The furniture was a bit old and outdated for the price of the spa cabin. The TV didn't have any reception and there was some very old DVDs there to watch. The spa and the views were fantastic. For the price this accommodation is probably better suited for families.

Having three young kids, this was the best place we stayed in Tas. The estate on a large piece of land where kids can run freely and encounter farm animals, or visits on your doorstep at breaky time!!! The beautiful scenery and mount Roland right at your feet cannot be raved enough of. The cabin - bit outdated, but neat... More

Units are well furnished with everything you need. Great for families to save some $, as you can cook dinners and make lunches for the next day of exploring. Plenty of activities for the kids if you want. Units are warm, beds comfortable and it makes a great base to explore the area from.

If only we could have stayed longer!! Our GPS couldn't find the driveway for the property and it was dark and pouring and my 1yr old was bawling after the flight from Brisbane and then the drive from Launceston so it wasn't a good trip out THANKFULLY the property manager had seen us driving up and down the street and...

Great scenery and location, adequate cabins and friendly local staff. A bit dated interiors but certainly an overall wholesome, friendly farmstead experience. Gorgeous views in the evenings, friendly animals too!

We stayed in the Bronze Wing spa cottage late November for one night. It was overcast when we first arrived and Mount Roland was nowhere to be seen behind the clouds, but the friendly welcome from John and exploring their old silver mine and seeing the animals and beautiful farm surrounds made up for our initial disappointment. John has gumboots... More

This was booked as a small backpacker style cabin and it was exactly that small but comfortable. The business is family run on a very casual basis with the owners the friendliest I have ever experienced, for example the owner came over to our room one night to tell us about a meteor shower later that night and it was...

The views were just beautiful so if you want to pay the hefty price for accommodation go ahead. We pre-booked on the net after reading the reviews from others but we were very disappointed. We had a back cabin so had the greatest of views but the second bedroom was locked and there was nowhere to store our suitcases. The... More

We loved staying here. So much for the children (3 of them) to do. Horse rides, feeding cows and chickens, patting possums, exploring an old mine in the bush, cubby house, indoor swimming pool, and that was all just on site. Lots of excursions within 40 minutes drive too. Loved the Fudge and Coffee shop in Sheffield too. We had... More
