We spent three nights in late December 08 at the Tin Dragon Cottages while touring East and North Tasmania; the cottage was an ideal base for touring the Tin Dragon Trail but also for Launceston and the vin yards of the Tamar Valley. The Tin Dragon Cottages are set in lovely countryside with a heritage walk and nature walks nearby and lots of wildlife, our cottage was really well equipped and very, very comfortable, there was a fabulous array of provisions for breakfast. The owners are very friendly, welcoming and helpful with tips on places to visit, interesting walks and where to eat. I was travelling with family but I would recommend the cottages to young families, couples or friends who would like a relaxed rural base.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer romance, seclusion and privacy in fully self-contained two-bedroom and studio spa-cottages each with river views - situated on a 36 acre bush alpaca farm. 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. This stretch of the Ringarooma River is favored by fly fishermen. Chinese heritage is celebrated with an interpretation centre, landscape art and walking tracks through historic mining and water races. ... more less
