Description of Art Deco Cottages at Tarraleah:
Cottages at Tarraleah
Polished wooden floor boards, warm fires, queen size beds, a fully equipped kitchen and dinning area - these Art deco cottages are self contained, rather large time capsules with modern facilities.
With one to three bedrooms, many of them have original Art deco furnishings or examples of Tasmanian fine furniture making. All have TV’s, DVD’s, electric blankets and laundry, plus a 1930’s style kitchen with 21st Century appliances.
Rated by the UK Consumers group magazine “Holiday Which” as one of the places to stay in Tasmania. Two night minimum stay.
The Highlander Arms with its local beers and home cooking is less than five minutes walk away and Teez Café for great coffee, breakfast and a bottle of wine over lunch is the same but in the opposite direction.
Or treat yourself to a Tasmanian fine dinning experience one evening at the nearby Wildside Restaurant with at least four courses of gourmet cuisine and a wine list of over 300.
Groceries, clothing, fishing supplies, Tasmanian craft and small luxuries are all available at the Highland Store. Fuel, Internet and telephone are also accessible on the Estate
Endless activities, unique tours, walks, wildlife, pioneering history and wilderness are all on your doorstep. Play golf, squash, use the gym if you have to, go trout fishing, mountain biking, secret lake kayaking, wonder at the stars and spot over 80 different species of birds, all within striking distance of the Estate.
And there is always the risk that you might see one of our resident wombats snuffling around the back door.
