Tin Dragon Trail Cottages are a great idea and the owners are executing it with passion and commitment. The location is gorgeous and the cottages are tidy and clean with lots of fabulous homey touches. The downside for us is that they weren't that kid friendly with poor indoor outdoor flow and a bit dark when it is cold. I imagine they would be much nicer in summer. The gas fire makes them toasty warm - but a nightmare to keep little hands away from.
If I were travelling away for a romantic stay or a trip with grown ups it would be great. For anyone with kids under 4, try and find somewhere a little less closed in.
- 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
