Visited Stanley recently (May 2014) and spent two nights in this accommodation. Very neat, tidy and comfortable with plenty of facilities and friendly hosts. Right in the centre of the historic part of town and in walking distance to a lot of attractions. If staying here the only quirk was the amount of space in the upstairs bedroom with the... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by our host with a lovely friendly smile. We were travelling with another couple and had booked a cottage for 4. What a lovely surprise on arrival our cottage was down a windy brick paved driveway overlooking the most amazing views of the coastline from both levels. A lovely basket a fresh muffins awaited our... More

Stayed 5 days and had a fabulous time. Close to the Tarkine wilderness and Arthur river cruises. Stayed in "the pines" a 2 story cottage. Queen bed in loft and 2 singles down stairs in separate bedroom. A cosy fire was laid ready to light. Welcoming muffins and a card gave a great first impression, and it continued to impress.... More

Cathy & Trevor are so very special people who went out of their way to make our visit very welcoming and extremely helpful to our needs which we appreciated so much. We tried other accommodations in Stanley and were not impressed at all, especially the caravan park. Before we found them, we were thinking we might have to leave Stanley,... More

We stayed in The Pines at Touchwood Cottages. The accommodation was kept clean and was quite well designed with a twin bedded room, bathroom kitchenette, dining area and seating area downstairs and a double bedroom up in the loft space. This room was rather cramped as anyone over 6 feet in height could only stand up straight in the middle... More

Stayed for two days from 26th December with two adult children. Very comfy 3 BR cottage, outstanding large bathroom with claw foot bath and large separate shower. Everything supplied for breakfast, plate of fresh muffins when we arrived. The mattresses were good, maybe benefit from a choice of a softer pillow. An original 1840's cottage that has lots of atmosphere... More

We stayed in the studio for 2 nights which was clean, tidy and well equipped and felt like we was in a cottage back in time, the decor was fantastic and the bed was very comfy. Kathy was very helpful and we had only booked one night but straight away booked another night . A good find.

An exhilarating two day sojourn in the Stanley region with visits to the stunning Edge of the World; the Arthur River and Green Point at Marrawah made comfortable by the delightful evenings in the Studio. Hosts Kathy and Terry were magnificent and very helpful and the apartment (self contained) was magnificently appointed. Yet another treasure in Stanley. Walking distance to... More

We arrived in Stanley without accommodation, so we were very happy to find Touchwood Ottages available. We were given The Pines...a two bedroom cottage at the back of the property...& what a cottage. Fantastic views across to the east inlet...we watched the tide come in. A queen bed upstairs in the roof...very cute. The kitchen had all we could need.... More

The Pines Touchwood Cottage was one of the highlights of our trip to Tassie last month. Was so lovely to stay there after some of our smaller motel accommodation, and Terry and Kathy went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and have the place set up so you feel like you're at home straight away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Looking for a breath of fresh air? If so, you can't beat the quaint little seaside village of Stanley on Tasmania's North West Coast. With its whistling wind and gorgeous countryside, Stanley is the ideal base for exploring all the natural beauty and attractions the region has to offer. Noted for its friendliness and warm hospitality Touchwood Cottages are situated in the heart of Stanley and are the perfect place to relax and unwind. There is an excellent cafe on-site using an abundance of local fresh produce open six days of the week and some evenings. A design Gallery and gift shop, choc full of Tasmanian product, complete the small complex which, with its cobble stone walkways and old street lamps, is reminiscent of an English scene! All three cottages are 4 star rated and decorated in a colonial style blended with modern touches. They are well appointed, full of character and charm and extremely comfortable. All are fully self-contained. We are located within a stone's throw of the beaches, eateries, attractions & shops. Hearty breakfast supplies, a fresh fruit bowl and chocolates with port are included in your tariff. ... more   less
