Tasmania Eco Accommodation
Relax in the comfort of our unique cottages whilst enjoying the country setting. Curl up by the fires in Winter or enjoy a glass of wine on the deck in the long afternoon light of Summer.
All the cottages are self contained with basic cooking facilities and wood heaters
We have TV and DVD players in all cottages and Wi-Fi internet is also available, but most of our guests prefer to relax and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings and the advantages of a rural retreat from the pressures of the city.
Your children may be busy in the veggie garden, exploring the kids activities and communicating with the family over a good old fashioned board game – in fact too busy to miss their iPads.
