My partner and I had a wonderful long weekend up in a spa cottage. It was stocked well and had all the little bits we needed for a stress free weekend. The massage romance package was well worth it. Christine and Graeme were very welcoming and very friendly. Such a pleasure to stay here in the north east of Tasmania.... More

We booked a romantic weekend away in the Fon Hock Cottage. From the moment we opened the door into our quaint little cottage and inhaled the aroma of freshly baked bread, we knew we were in for a lovely experience. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts and were soon settled in the cottage, the gas fire cheerily heating the... More

We stayed in one of the "couples" cottages for 2 nights and could have stayed longer. The cottages were extremely well equipped, they thought of everything down to simple cooking ingredients and a washer/dryer. We had a paddle in their canoe, and went on several walks as recommended in the "walks" folder in the room (without which we would not... More

This is one of those special places where we felt priveleged to have stayed! Graeme & Christine have not only created a haven for accomodation seekers, but their respect for the history, care of the land & thoughtfulness all contribute to make this a unique experience. We changed our plans to enable ourselves to spend half a day just enjoying... More

My wife and I and our two children aged 4 and 7 stayed for 3 nights in January. We stayed in the Ah Moy cottage which was very comfortable and well designed. The next few days we spent around the farm mostly spotting animals and kayaking up the river where we fished for trout (a few bites), gem fossicked and... More

We stayed four nights in "Ah Back" cottage at the start of our Tasmanian holiday. Exceptionally well designed cottage, clean, well equipped and breakfast provisions too. This is the standard that every self contained accommodation should aspire to and spoiled us, as we did not find anything else to match. Owners Graham and Christine were really helpful and knowledgeable. This... More

We took a couple of nights here in the middle of our Tassie adventure. Despite big plans to see the area we stayed on the farm for the day. Mostly platypus spotting (we did have a fleeting glimpse of one). Really enjoyed it. We got some meat from the local butcher in Scottsdale and veg from a few shops down... More

We had a wonderful two night stay in the romantic setting of the Tin Dragon cottages. The space is so peaceful, and cottages well appointed, clean and comfortable. The outdoor spa was excellent for a glass of bubbles and gazing at the starry sky. Graham and Christine were very accommodating and passionate about the area and its history. Bring your... More

Graham and Christine looked after us for few days there across the New Years. Beautiful setting and lots to explore. One of the highlights were the local platypus, which showed off for the camera and the big brown trout Sharon hooked onto. Tip: take a landing net down with you.

What amazing photos of the platypus. I am so jealous. Of course I never have my camera with me when a platypus comes over to say hello...and soon as I take out the camera the platypus hides. S/he was having a good old scratch. Oh and I feel your pain about the lost trout--it truely was the big one that... More
