My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights while driving down from Launceston to Hobart. We arrived on a cold wet evening and walked in to the most beautiful little studio. I'd seen plenty of pictures but in person it was even better. The studio is kept meticulously clean, the living space is wonderful. The bed was AMAZING. The... More

Wagoners cottages and the host, Belinda is simply lovely. From check in to coming back from our trip out to find home baked scones and a loaf of bread still warm and waiting for us was amazing. The fire was prepped and cosy for a winters night in. Our cottage had the bedroom upstairs which was lovely and special. Would... More

We stayed in the studio cottage for 3 nights in the middle of June - the studio was delightful, it had character and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Our hosts Belinda and Kerry were very welcoming, helpful and friendly from beginning to end. Despite the weather being cold, the studio was well heated, including the bathroom and the... More

Absolutely loved staying here for a night. We stayed in the studio, it was a great place to snuggle up out of the cold. Belinda, the owner, told us about the wineries and the Freycinet Marine Farm so we went and bought fresh oysters and local wine for dinner back at the cottage. A great way to spend a winter... More

Everything about this fully stocked cottage was splendid from booking to finish. Upon our arrival we were surprised to find fresh home made bread and eggs were in the kitchen as well as so many other little treats and goodies stocked around the cottage, eg fresh flowers, port, chocolates. Moments later we were greeted by Belinda who informed us about... More

My husband and I stayed a week here for our honeymoon in December last year, and never wanted to leave! We were exhausted after all the wedding preparation and just wanted a quiet place to relax and refresh ourselves, which Wagner's certainly delivered. The cottage was beautifully decorated, and full of little touches that assured us that our hosts knew... More

Thank you for your review ! The history of Wagners Cottages is an integral part of Swansea, something we are proud of at our little piece of the Freycinet coast !

The Studio is a renovated stone walled stable that is now just perfect. Belinda and Kerry have set it out very well with everything you may need for a perfect short or longer stay. The bathroom has a spacious spa bath and the bed was very comfortable with no road noise.

wagnerscottages, Owner at Wagner's Cottages, responded to this review

Thank you Colin, it makes our efforts worthwhile to read that you were happy in the "old stables" apparently, under the bathroom floor they covered over the original cobbles, maybe one day we can restore them for our guests to enjoy !! Best wishes....Kerry and Belinda. More

We had a fully self contained cottage which was simply great. The little additions were - fresh baked bread in our room upon arrival, eggs for breakfast and jams etc , chocolates on the bed, fresh cut flowers, some port to sit by the fire with all included. Very homely. Would definitely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wagners Cottage is heritage listed and the gardens and estate are still surrounded by original drystone walls built by Michael Wagner and his son in circa 1860. Our four cottages are positioned throughout the estate and as such, enjoy an atmosphere of serenity and privacy. We have studio, one and two bedroom cottages, most with open log fires and luxurious spas to enable you to relax fully after a days exploration of our beautiful Freycinet Coast and surrounding wineries. ... more   less
