A really lovely place to stay for exploring the Tasman peninsular. Very comfortable, clean cottage, stunning view across the water, and incredibly peaceful. Perfect for taking a walk through the coal mines site just up the road and then a short drive around to Port Arthur and onwards to the other great hiking tracks. We will definitely stay here again!

Even though the cottage was 'compact' it was modern, very comfortable with superb views , in a very quiet and tranquil setting about 20mins drive from Pt Arthur.

Comfy peaceful getaway
No frills property that was comfortable (great bed) and had everything that we needed to self cater (even a Weber BBQ). Great view and peaceful surrounds. Really appreciated the DVD’s and board games. No wifi (which was expected) and if you have Vodafone no reception.
