We just love Lemonthyme!
We were married here in 2015 and return regularly. It is a truely unique place, away from it all out in the beautiful Tasmanian rainforest. A place to relax, get in touch with nature, escape the hustle and bustle and recharge. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, if a little outdated. The king beds could use an upgrade ie. make them a king, not two singles joined in the middle. But the cabins are warm, light filled and surrounded by the rainforest. We stayed as a family, 2 kids under 5, and cooked lunch and dinners in the 2 bed cabin. The kitchen is adequate for self-contained, if you are prepared to cook on an electric frypan and bring all your condiments. Perhaps they could offer a cooking pack with oil, salt, pepper etc? We will be back again soon. Our kids love doing the little bushwalks, seeing all the animals and exploring amongst the ferns. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, drinking fabulous Tasmanian wine and watching life go by.

We stayed in Devon, it was slightly overpriced for the condition. The sliding door lock needs repair, cupboard door in front of the fridge is starting to come off it hinges, curtains were in poor condition and we killed several spiders inside the room. On a brighter side the surroundings and scenery was just amazing from the deck and spa.
