ECO SPA RETREAT IN NORTH EAST TASMANIA
Falling in love with this lush green valley and its clear-flowing river we purchased a 36 Ac farm in 2001 and set about building the five brick and stone cottages which now sit looking out over the Ringarooma River. The former degraded cow paddock has been transformed to give each cottage its own private native garden with outdoor bar-be-que setting.
All cottages are self-contained. Our two-bedroom cottages suit couples travelling together, or small families, while our studio cottages with outdoor heated spa are perfect for a short romantic getaway.
Enjoy a steaming spa under the stars, snuggle by the fire then drift to sleep under an alpaca wool-filled doona. In the morning you can enjoy a hearty hot breakfast of fresh farm eggs and other local produce. Your only intrusion will be from our farm animals and the inquisitive wallabies foraging near your cottage or the soaring eagles above.
We provide a complimentary breakfast hamper. A packed picnic basket can be ordered and an appointment with an in-house massage therapist can be made, too.
We are close to the East Coast and northern beaches, sensational golf courses and the Blue Tiers and Cascades which boast some of the best mountain biking trails in Australia. If fresh Tassie foods are your passion, you’ll be pleased that Tin Dragon Trail Cottages is close to vineyards, award-winning cheese-makers, hops-fields (and micro-breweries) and farm-gate and road-side fresh produce stalls. Of course there is a local country market most weekends, too.
You will enjoy the genuine country hospitality and the rich natural and cultural heritage of North East Tasmania.
Come and see why so many Tasmanians love North East Tasmania!
Rain is harvested to supply clean chemical-free water and a micro-hydro powers the cottages. Waste water is recycled back onto the farm. You are welcome to collect eggs, pick vegetables and fruit from our organic garden and catch your own trout for the BBQ.
Tin Dragon Cottages at Branxholm is a hidden gem! It is missed by the folk who stick to 'icon' tourism. That's their loss because its really rewarding to get out there and discover the real Tasmania —Jon (reviewed on TripAdvisor)
