We unexpectedly came across this accommodation in a flyer we found at a local cafe. It sounded lovely so we thought we'd check it out. It was the weekend and we weren't sure if there would be any availabilities, but we took the turnoff in Branxholm (very easy to find by the way) and came up to a sign that said "reception." Cristine, one of the owners greeted us and informed us that there were availabilities that night. We decided to stay for two nights, seeing as how that would make our accommdation cheaper. She took us round the reception area and pointed out the cottages, right away we were sold. Graham, her hubby, came down the hill to take us inside the cottage we were to call home, just to make sure we really wanted to stay (and stay we did!!). We pulled up to Chintock, came around the side of the house, saw the spa and the barbie and we knew we'd found our place. Graham opened the door and we were greeted by a lovely kitchen, plush leather sofa, a large bathroom, and an inviting bed. We had gas burner oven, flat screen TV w/satellite/DVD/CD, a gas fireplace...all the comforts of home without the clean up. Graham and Cristine were more than accommodating, and their lovely son James was eager to show us his chooks (make sure to have a look, for a 6 year-old, James has a great way with all those chooks). We had everything we needed including full breakfast (fresh eggs from James' chooks), fresh-cut flowers, a selection of DVDs and CDs, and assurance from Graham that we would have all the privacy we desired. We couldn't have found a better place to stay or people to greet us when we got there. We felt right at home, and we could've stayed for a week or longer. Our late-night spas we warm and relaxing with only the stars, moon, and an occasional alpaca or wallaby around us. It was absolutely perfect, and if we find ourselves in Tasmania again, we know who we'll be visiting. The Chinese tin mining history is also very interesting and unique and the proprietors have done a lovely job of setting up displays, information, and walks along the three mines that used to be in function. Rarely do you find such a spot where the owners have really put themselves in the shoes of the guest and provided them all they could want or desire...and on top of that they welcome suggestions for improvement and are always looking to be at the top of their game in for hospitality industry. Please have a stay at the Tin Dragon Trail Cottages sometime soon - you will NOT be disappointed!

The facilties at our cottage were all anyone could need + the BBQ right outside on the patio. Beds were very comfortable, the little bag of individual toiletries were a lovely touch as well as the fresh flowers. The huge power shower was fab - though no bath. The provisions with fresh eggs from the host's chickens were delicious. Graham and Christine were very welcoming, helpfully pointing out where to go/what to visit.
Even offering us the opportunity of raiding their garden for fresh vegetables for our evening meals.
Finally I must mention the Alpacas which were in the field opposite the cottages - it was fun feeding them Graham thanks we loved it all. Sorry for accidently packing your sauces from the fridge. Wendy & Phil Healy St. Albans Herts UK

I have just returned from a fantatic trip around the East Coast of Tasmania with my husband and two little boys (3 & 4). We decided to spend 3 nights inland to view the countryside and relax a little (if you can with two little boys).

Our cottage was by far the best accommodation on our whole trip. Very comfortable with a kitchen full of goodies, including fresh eggs (I know they are fresh because the boys collected them), sausages, bacon - even the ingredients to make pancakes!

We will definitely come again on our next trip! Thanks to Graham, Christine and James for your hospitality.

There are a number of very positive reviews of the Tin Dragon Trail Cottages and this will be no exception. From arriving and being welcomed by Rusty (the friendly farm dog) and then by Graham, Christine & James, the most friendly hospitable hosts we have had the pleasure to meet.

Our stay was made so welcome. Our cottage - AH MOY, was a two bedroom and like all the cottages built by Graham was built to a high standard with fantastic attention to detail. There was nothing we needed or were short of. I slept like a baby, not sure if this was due to the quality of the beds or the Alpaca wool filled doonas. We also loved the bacon, sausage and fresh eggs supplied. Christine has also gone to so much trouble to document the history of the property, chronicling the history of the Chinese Migrants who worked the land for the tin in years gone by. We only managed one of the trails and that was fantastic, still it will give us an excuse to return.

Do yourselves a favour, track down their website and make a booking before we beat you to it.
