We spent a peaceful and relaxing two days in the north east of Tasmania at Tin Dragon Cottages. We stayed in Chintock Cottage which was private and very comfortable with an outdoor spa which we used both evenings. Our hosts, Graham and Christine were very warm and friendly and full of local knowledge. Excellent breakfast provisions are included. If you stay for a few days it is best to cook for yourself but this is no drama as the cottage is well provisioned with excellent cookware and a wide range of sauces, spices and condiments. We cooked a three course dinner of fresh Tasmanian scollops, fillet steak with mushrooms and chocolate mousse. We walked on of the trails and went further afield for a pint at Weldborough where they have a wide range of Tasmanian beers and cider. The cottages are located in the center of northeastern Tasmania so they are a good base to explore the area. You may be lucky to see a platypus in the river at the base of the property.

Each cottage has a private outdoor dining area with bar-be-que and the studio cottages have an outdoor heated spa. Principles of ecological sustainability are combined with the comforts of a luxurious retreat. Your only disturbance might be from the occasional inquisitive pademelon or soaring eagle.
