ECO SPA RETREAT IN NORTH EAST TASMANIA
We fell in love with the lush green Ringarooma valley and its clear-flowing river and in 2001 purchased an amazing 36 Ac farm nestled in a bend of the river. You will love this place too! We have taken ten years to build 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.
If you want crowds of people, 24-hour service and flash shops then don't stay here. But if you seek privacy, peace and quiet then this is your place. Snuggle by the fire, listen to the night life—those noisy possums and padmelons! In the morning you can enjoy a hearty hot breakfast of fresh farm eggs and other local produce. Don't mind the alpacas staring at you over the fence or the chooks following you down to the river.
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 more... Jon (reviewed on TripAdvisor 2013)
