We (2 adults, 2 kids and 1 baby) stayed at the Wedgetail Wings for 2 nights.

Very nice and comfortable stay. Well stocked kitchen with sandwich maker and rice cooker!

I liked that there were 2 bathrooms and we had a good sized deck with a BBQ grill.

Loved: great cottage. Wildlife came to our door. Daily visits by a kookaburra and we also saw an echidna. Great view of hills and river. Kids got a kick seeing the sheep each day as we drive back to the cottage. I personally liked being able to see the stars from the comfort of the master bedroom. Yummy home made bread which tastes really good the day we got it, but unfortunately (as it happens so often with bread), tasted less good as it got stale. But on the first day, it was divine. I was just picking at it and smearing jam onto it and snacking and snacking! Lovely hosts too.

True, there are bugs and flies around but you gotta expect that on a farm.

Great place for me and my city kids. You get the rural without having to forgo creature comforts.

Hi Meg,
Thank you so much for your kind words on here. We try to always make the bread on the morning of guests arrival and you are correct in saying after a few days it gets a bit crusty. Thats the downside of having home made bread without the long life preservatives that are added to commercial loaves. Im sorry about the bugs but when in the country they only have a few lights to zone into at night. They are at their worst on the really hot balmy nights and a tip for future travellers is to make sure you keep the screen doors closed whilst cooking your BBQ dinner and also whilst gazing at the stars at night. Its amazing how many can sneak in when your not watching for them. The good news is that they are only occasional moths, cockchafers and a small flying insect that gathers in hovering formation during the day. None of these will harm you in any way and the best way to clear them from a room is to turn all the inside lights off while you leave a door open and an outside light on, to attract them back to the outside of your cottage. :-)
Hope to see you again sometime soon.
Cheers
Tim

This has been and is the best farm stay accommodation experience we had among all the other accommodation we had in Tasmania. We were traveling down from Cradle Mountain and it was a nice refreshing view to see the sheep up close and personal. We stayed at Seagle Nest and it is a great honeymoon accommodation. You have a fantastic view of the lake, the greenery, away from all the hussle, cook your own meals, even have a jacuzzi with your partner! It is really well maintained and the home made bread was yummy! Tim and Jane were great hosts and we were just so happy! We wished we could stay longer next time!

Room Tip: If you are looking for a honeymoon location, this is it! Seagle Nest is what you will go for!

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!)

Stayed here a few months back in "Wedgetail Wings".

It was a fantastic stay, and so nice to get into the country for a while.

Rooms were well presented, kitchen was clean and modern and you can't complain about a spa bath with an amazing view.

Thanks for having us!

Jam was delicious! during our stay we had a great experience of the farm. great view overseeing the river at the
Back of the farm, took lots of amazing photos and the accomodation was nice and clean and fully equipped kitchen and it even have a fully equipped laundry despite of been a bit old but it was good timber house and really enjoyed our stay at the farm and would definately recommend family and friends of this accommodation! Overall experience was very good and I would say worth a try even if the price may seem a but pricy but it is definately worth the great experience :)
