“Complete Bliss”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

What a beautiful part of the world! Host Graham made us so welcome and we were delighted with our cottage (Fon Hock - with outdoor spa) The cottages have everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay - with attention to detail that really made our stay special. They were impeccably maintained and decorated in a warm, almost bohemian style.

We loved the walks along the river, meeting the animals and the nightime outdoor spas where we could look up and watch shooting stars. Just gorgeous. We didn't want to leave - what a treasure of a place.

We stayed here for 2 nights in fon hock cottage. This is the first time of us to visit Australia and stay in cottage. We just WOW and thinking can we extend for 3 or 4 nights when we just arrived! I recommend you have to stay 3 or 4 nights on this. It was the most relaxing and comfortable place I ever been. The room is big enough for 2 to 3 peoples and contain everything you needed. The highlight in fon hock is the out-door spa. You can't imaging how amazing that having a hot spa under a sky full of stars. The host Graham, Christine and James are very nice! They even invited us for dinner at Ringaroma although we are not very good in English. You will never regret staying too long at Tin Dragon.
謝謝!
Terence and Ivy from Hong Kong :)

My wife and I spent the last 2 nights of our Honeymoon here after reading such fantastic reviews.

From minute one when we pulled in and saw the beautiful stream flowing down the side of the pebbled road leading to the cottages we knew it was something special. The host Graham came out and greeted us with champagne and chocolates and made us feel very welcome. He also provides a BBQ platter for you to cook and a roast hamper for your dinners, at a small cost. -Also available are lovely picnic hampers.

The accommodation was a warm, wooden, beautifully presented cabin with a fireplace, lush bed and all the facilities you need. What we found truly unique about this place, is the private out-door spa that sits metres away from your front door. It overlooks roaming grassy hills -which the Al Paca's have claimed as there own. We were concerned it may be a bit cool to go out to, but the cold night in a hot spa overlooking the stairs with a glass a champagne was magic!

A lot of people may think the location is a bit too remote, but that's exactly what we came there for. To be alone with each other for golf and hike filled days and warm steamy nights at the cabin ;) -Tin Dragon: An absolute must for anyone wanting a romantic trip away from the crowds!

We had a couples (Two couples, mid twenties ) weekend away to Tasmania and stayed at the Tin Dragon trail cottages. Unfortunately I rarely review places but this stay was so good i felt compelled to. The rooms were nice and the kitchen/BBQ area provided means for self catering. The onsite walks are very well maintained and informative.

The owners managed to find a perfect balance between being helpful but not intrusive. I have stayed a few of these types of places before and the owners normally trend to one extreme. Wildlife around the area was very interesting, saw a platypus which made my day. The wine in the region is pretty decent as well if you care for cool climate types. I highly recommend tin dragon cottage to anyone looking for a weekend away. I have already started pushing some friends and family to visit.

stayed here for 2 nights in fon hock cottage and it was fantastic. the hosts are super friendly, the alpacas are charming and the accommodation was very comfortable and relaxing. i loved the outdoor spa bath and the complimentary breakfast hamper was more than enough. a great place to stay if you want to 'get away from it all'. highly recommend.

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.

We spent a peaceful and relaxing two days in the north east of Tasmania at Tin Dragon Cottages. We stayed in Chintock Cottage which was private and very comfortable with an outdoor spa which we used both evenings. Our hosts, Graham and Christine were very warm and friendly and full of local knowledge. Excellent breakfast provisions are included. If you stay for a few days it is best to cook for yourself but this is no drama as the cottage is well provisioned with excellent cookware and a wide range of sauces, spices and condiments. We cooked a three course dinner of fresh Tasmanian scollops, fillet steak with mushrooms and chocolate mousse. We walked on of the trails and went further afield for a pint at Weldborough where they have a wide range of Tasmanian beers and cider. The cottages are located in the center of northeastern Tasmania so they are a good base to explore the area. You may be lucky to see a platypus in the river at the base of the property.

Room Tip: Choose a studio cottage for an outdoor spa
