Our family of five stayed three nights in the rustic Settlers hut on a mountain bike family holiday thru Tassie & wish we had stayed longer. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find the six bunk heritage hut was quite modern, clean & comfortable inside. It was well equipped to be self sufficient but was also outfitted with quite...

Stayed at Chintock for a relaxing, romantic break over New Year. Saw resident wallabies, echidna and platypus on site and were visited at night by pademelons, brush-tailed possums and a little potoroo while star-gazing from the tub. The cottage garden was private. Overall very happy. The cottage provided everything you might need (some breakfast items on the first morning, tea,...

My husband and I stayed in the Fon Hock spa cottage on our last two nights of our Tasmanian Honeymoon. It was exactly what we needed after 2 weeks of camping. The cabin was cosy and after big days on the blue derby tracks we loved coming home to fish in the river before wrapping up the day with best...

My husband and I stayed at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages for two nights and really loved this place. It is a beautiful secluded retreat. We loved sitting in the spa watching the alpacas in the sun during the day and watching the stars at night.

Such a gorgeous setting! Babbling water, lowing cattle, rolling pasture and bush trails. The cottages are thoughtfully appointed and generously provisioned. The owners were friendly and welcoming. And who can go past a beautiful outdoor bath - utter relaxation!

The place is a heaven on earth with welcoming owners. Graeme was very nice and told us about his settling in the area, the tin mine history and...

Lovely couple who own the cottages are very welcoming. We were given food for breakkie, chocolates, wine and they even had warm bread being made as we walked in the cabin smelt amazing! We got a romantic package that included the massage and hot tub which was beautiful to go in and look up at all the stars at night....

We were absolutely spoilt with the amount of provisions here, bacon, eggs, choccies, wine, beer, fresh baked bread on arrival, it was all so good - too much to mention: Definitely spring for the indulgence package. There is no way you could be cold, the heating is amazing, the space cozy but not cramped, just perfect for two. The amenities...

Well what a find. We stayed at Ah Ping cottage with one Queen bed and two singles. Excellent facilities and a small but nice supply of breakfast provisions. Wonderful grounds to roam and meet the fauna including resident alpacas and chooks. The river had just been in flood so unfortunately couldn't use the the kayaks - maybe next time. Owners...

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
