Comfortable, retro, farm style cottage
My family & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
All the necessary household equipment was provided & furnishings were comfortable & cosy.
We loved the rural views - the picturesque dam & the cute Suffolk sheep added to the ambience of the property.
Proximity to other Northern towns & tourist attractions was also advantageous. Many thanks Marty!
Great location - a perfect place to explore the northern part of Tasmania.
This was a very relaxed house with a great outlook into fields. It had most things you need and importantly for us was dog friendly. The garden was lovely to sit out in for the evening but could use some more outdoor seating. Inside we would suggest the addition of an iron. All other facilities were provided with fully stocked kitchen, washing machine and comfy beds. Everything easy to operate with friendly, helpful neighbours.
The location of this place is fantastic - we enjoyed a morning stroll to Turners Beach and then breakfast at the La Mer cafe (an excellent cafe - great coffee and delicious food as well as gifts/books you can buy). We also enjoyed evening strolls - friendly people and a very relaxed atmosphere.
You are short drive to either Devonport or Ulverstone. We did all our local supermarket shopping in Ulverstone as well as enjoyed some fab meals at Pier One. This restaurant is excellent. We went back a couple of times.
Location for day trips is perfect!
Really good value for money if you want something comfortable.
Thanks for your review. Never crossed my mind about having an ironing board. Would like to think people are too busy having a good time rather than doing a load of ironing. We do have dreams of knocking down the old shed and having an out door area looking out to the paddock. Another thing I realise I don't have is Doggy Poo Bags for my guests, with pets, so as they can pick up and bin after there little doings.
Outstanding little home away from home 👍
Outstanding little cottage that comfortably accomodate our family, Awesome Value for money, extremely tidy n clean and great communication. Coming from Qld we were so happy to find the shed stocked with firewood for those cold days n nights in Tassie. It really was a home away from home. Thank you very much Marty n family👍👌👌.Highly recommended. Location was spot on.
