High recommended! This was the first stop of our vacation in Tasmania and it was definitely a great start! We stayed at the Over The Back cottage, which was perched on a hilltop facing a nice lake - the view was breathtaking and almost surreal! The cottage was very spacious and clean, and well-stocked with provisions. The kids absolutely enjoyed frolicking on the fields outside the cottage. My 3 year old daughter even commented that she could stay here forever!
The best part of the stay has to be the owners of the farm, Tim and Jane. We had the misfortune of having our luggage mishandled by jetstar on the way into Tasmania. The jetstar staff were extremely unhelpful and refused to make arrangements to deliver our luggage on the same day, even though we had emphasised that we had essentials for the kids in the luggage. On hearing our predicament, Tim and Jane voluntarily offered to drive to the airport (3 hours round trip at 9pm!!!) to pick up our luggage! Jane had even bought baby formula for our kid in case we needed it in the meantime. Such exemplary service is what 5-star hotels cannot even offer! We just could not thank Tim and Jane enough for taking the extra mile (100 miles in fact) to help us.
Thumbs up for Curringa Farm (and thumbs down for jetstar!)
