Duffy's Country Accommodation
Reviewed April 6, 2014

I spent one night in Berryfleld's cabin here while cycle touring and it was really very good indeed. The cabin is a studio, which is furnished very nicely and had everything I could have wanted - including a nice covered porch with a relaxing country view. Furniture was all in excellent condition (looked pretty new) and kitchenette with kitchenware was spot on. Complimentary decanter of port and a couple of chocolates was a very nice touch.
Breakfast was relatively simple - muesli, milk, two eggs (that I could cook as I pleased) and 4 slices of bread with jam etc - but perfectly fine. No yogurt or fruit, but I am sure I could have had some if I had asked.
As others have commented, the hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. I left my phone charger there and Annette jumped in her car and tried to catch me up to give it back! She couldn't find it, so posted it to me very soon after - couldn't ask for more...
I would thoroughly recommend staying here, with no hesitation whatsoever, if you would like a self-contained place to stay while in the area.

Like many others we stumbled across this retreat and couldnt have been happier. A delightful place if onlyvwe could have stayed longer. Annette and Desi were lovely although our meeting was brief. A well thought out picturesque cabin.A good reason to visit the area.

Our American family of four spent four days at Duffy's over the holidays. It's a delightful place. Annette was wonderful and helpful. What a genuine lady! Her entire family has lived in the valley for generations, and she and husband Desmond take a very quiet, understated, Tasmanian pride in their area and their roots in it. The cabins border farmland on all sides, a stone's throw from the Tyenna river. The area is full of wallabies, pademelons, brush-tailed possums, platypuses, owls, echidnas, ring-tailed possums, even the occasional sugar glider. Mount Field National Park is close by, with its spectacular tarn hike (go prepared: the weather can change in a second, even in summer), pandanis, pencil pines, and snow gums. The cabin itself was warm, scrupulously clean, modern, and beautiful. Our sons stayed in the small but functional "accessory cabin" steps away. It's a great place to stay, made special and unforgettable by Annette and Desmond.

The hospitality, the privacy, the cleanliness, the setting, the serenity and the sense of relaxation was amazing.
Lovely hosts with very thoughtful little surprises make this a very rewarding short stay.
Very reasonable rates top off the enjoyment.

We stayed 2 nights here while visiting Mt Field National Park. Our studio cabin was very private and quiet, except for the soothing sounds of birds and sheep. We saw so many birds in the fabulous garden and photographed many of them, which were in the garden beds at our front door. We picked up supplies in New Norfolk on our way there, as advised, and were very comfortable and happy with our stay. The owners were very helpful but not intrusive.

Stumbled on this quaint place by accident.
Loved everything about the little cottage we stayed in for one night. Calves freshly weaned from their mothers that day reminded me of home!!! (All the bellowing... by mothers and calves)
Buy supplies or take them with you and if you forget to do that you can purchase a "care pack" from Annette or Desi.
They have harnessed a great idea and have managed to create a paradise...
Would love to come back and spend more time here.

Room Tip: Enjoy your time and explore the area.

Duffy's Rangers cottage was amazing - everything that a family of 5 could wish for. The hosts were so warm and friendly - we could have adopted them as our surrogate family! Spacious, clean and homely - everything was catered for ... Fully self contained cottage with additional (limited) options for eating out nearby or ordering from the hosts via the in-house menu. The raspberry jam and port were great touches and well equipped kitchen & washing machine was appreciated. Walk through the nearby raspberry fields or take a short drive to Mt Field National Park with an abundance of great walking tracks & views. . Such a relaxing place - we planned to stay 1 night but stayed 3 - a highly recommended hidden gem - well worth the detour!

Room Tip: Rangers Cottage has 2 bedrooms + a badgers cottage (great for small adventurous kids). Plenty of ro...
