Tin Dragon Trail Cottages logo



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.

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.

Our Location
Binnalong bay

We are close to the East Coast and northern beaches and sensational golf courses at Ringarooma, Moorina, Scottsdale, Bridport and Barnbougle. 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.


Chintock cottage

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. 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.


farm stay alpacas

Our cottages are carbon positive with power supplied by solar and micro-hydro generation. Rain is harvested to supply clean chemical-free water and all waste water is treated on site and recycled onto our farm. We even spin the fibre from our own alpaca herd! You are welcome to collect eggs, vegetables and fruit from our organic garden and catch your own trout for the BBQ.
