The Tin Dragon Trail Cottages (TDTC) are excellent. My husband and I wanted to stay at a place where we could enjoy the beautiful Tasmanian environment. Certainly TDTC did not disappoint. The Ringarooma River is within a minute’s walk from the cottages and beautiful Tasmanian forests are only a few minutes away. For three nights we had a very comfortable stay in a nicely appointed cottage that is very well-equipped. It is called Ah Ping and is one of five, spaced so that one is far enough away from one’s neighbour. We found the provision at TDTC better than at other places in Australia and overseas where we have stayed. For breakfast (self-cooked), as well as the usual cereal, milk and bread, there were also fresh eggs, bacon, sausages, various sauces and even pasta. We thank Graham and Christine for their great hospitality and recommend the TDTC to anyone who wants to explore and enjoy the north east of Tasmania.
- 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
