Great Cottage

We were made very welcome by Veronica and the Cottage we stayed in was so well appointed, very roomy and comfortable. Would stay here again without a 2nd thought. LOVED IT.

Comfortable stay by the Derwent

The Shingles had everything we needed for a comfortable week’s stay away from home. Electric blankets kept us warm, DVDs kept us entertained nightly while the washing machine came in handy towards the end of our stay. Allup, couldn’t have asked for more.

Home away from home

This was a great find for our stay in New Norfolk. Very homely, relaxed and private. Well equipped with complimentary breakfast supplies, and the grounds were lovely for a stroll in the sun. The view across the river from the grounds is stunning! Our host made us feel very welcome.

Gorgeous spot,right on the river.

A beautiful spot for a quiet stay with your loved one/ones. It’s within easy driving distance of Mt Field National Park or Hobart,without the hustle & bustle of city accommodation (which is what we were after)

Pros: The position. Away from the hustle and bustle, very quiet with a great outlook over the gardens and river
Cons: Perfect as it is
Location: It is a short drive to Mt Field National Park which is a must see. It is close to the city centre of New Norfolk where we enjoyed a pub meal.
We picked this accommodation as we wanted to visit Russell Falls in Mt Field National Park. The Shingles is well out of Hobart and closer to the National Park. We visited the Falls but what a treasure our accommodation at The Shingles was. We wished we had more time to stay there. Beside the picturesque Derwent River with only the sounds of birds to hear. Every moment here is so relaxing. We had Paddy's Flat which faces the gardens and river and is very private. The unit was well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was included with a range of cereals, milk, juice and breads to toast all in the room. Felt like a home away from home.
