Very clean, quiet, picturesque location. A lot of early Australian History in the area.There is so much more than just Port Arthur to see and learn about.

8/10 Very good

If what you want is self contained, no fuss check in and check out with easy access to the Port Arthur Peninsula, this is for you. It has everything you need and some cute wildlife on your doorstep. Probably hasn’t been ‘done up’ in over 20 years, but otherwise it’s practical and serves its purpose: a comfortable, well positioned stay.

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.
