My wife and I had the extreme privilege of being Christine and Graham's first ever guests way back in 2008. And we loved it.

At last the opportunity presented itself for a return visit. And we loved it.

The cottages nestle in a loop of the gorgeous Ringarooma River at Branxholm in Tassie's north east
Thank Colin G

It is a long story how we came to embark on this search for Guan Di in Tasmania. Our preparations for accommodation for our trip led us to these cottages. The TDT Cottages are a great place to stay, they are the best that we have stayed in by far. The hosts Grahame & Christine are wonderful hosts and very informative if you want to know anything about the area. Guan Di led us on a magical trip. We found him.
Thank Trish N

Hi Barbara. We are happy you were able to relax and unwind, even if just for a few days. It is good to get away, and we try to make our place a retreat. Thank you for taking time to talk with us. We look forward to meeting up again.

Friendly host, the cabins had all the little extras for cooking like condiments sauces oils, really handy to finish off your meal. It was lovely to have bacon and eggs there for breakfast. Very comfortable, highly recommended

My wife and I had the pleasure of a four night stay in the Chintock Studio Cottage at this quiet little place. The accommodation was comfortable and the catered package was interesting for the inclusion of local produce. The setting beside the river (with kayaks for those who don't mind cold water) was magical. It was all capped off with the private outdoor spa/bath. Our hosts looked after our few needs without effort and made us feel special.

Thank you Terry. How delightful to know that you were made to feel "special"! I think that is what a short break should be..relaxing and special. Have an enjoyable Easter long weekend. We hope to see you here again.

Description
We offer romance, seclusion and privacy in fully self-contained two-bedroom and studio spa-cottages each with river views - situated on a 36 acre bush alpaca farm. Each cottage has a private outdoor dining More area with bar-be-que and the studio cottages have an outdoor heated spa. Principles of ecological sustainability are combined with the comforts of a luxurious retreat. Your only disturbance might be from the occasional inquisitive pademelon or soaring eagle. This stretch of the Ringarooma River is favored by fly fishermen. Chinese heritage is celebrated with an interpretation centre, landscape art and walking tracks through historic mining and water races. Less
