Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A country cottage experience with winter frost outside while the wood fire keeps it cosy on the inside. A slow relaxed pace of life with pleasant lawn and wooded surrounds to spread out and enjoy a bit of outside recreation. We used the BBQ... yes even in winter. Plenty of parking for more than one vehicle and trailers. Only 5 min drive down into Burnie. Unfortunately the current owner has taken ill and the property is up for sale. Let's hope the new owner keeps the experience alive (17/01/20).

We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. The owners are friendly without being intrusive, the cottage is homey and comfortable. The eye for detail is significant! Anything you can think of it was there! Herbs and spices for cooking, dental floss in the bathroom, DVDs , books, games, wood for the fire ready to go. Beautiful gardens, well stocked kitchen.

This can easily sleep a family of 5 and fold outs beds for more. A portacot is there and baby gates on the stairs.

very reasonably priced we will definitely be returning.

The only very minor thing is just the one bathroom/toilet.... So no toilet upstairs for the middle of the night wake up call! However torch provided for this!

We very comfortably drove to Cradle Mountain from here for the day.

We have stayed in a fair few places, but Hide-Away cottage puts the others to shame. Literally a barn converted into a cozy, country cottage, it is filled with charming touches, including one of the hosts' very own (quite incredible) artwork.
They have thought of everything down to the smallest detail. Clean towels? Check. Fresh bedding? Wine glasses and a complimentary carafe waiting your arrival? Check. Every basic pot, pan and dish you may need? Check!

Available in the cottage you have a decent tv, dvd player (with a selection of dvd's if you didn't bring your own), cd player, hair dryer, iron, washing machine, clothesline and pegs, board games for the rainy days, kettle, microwave, gas stove and oven, wood stove for the chilly Tassie nights, enough beds for everyone, even your basic cooking spices in the kitchen!

The cottage is literally surrounded by flowers and greenery, I assume this is where the name was born! And the hosts, Sue and Derek, are quite possibly the loveliest hosts in Tasmania. They are so friendly and welcoming, it was like visiting relatives (the NICE ones, haha!)

Their own personal home is on the same property, a 30 second walk from your cottage should you need anything. Our 2 sons LOVED the sheep and chickens, and admittedly I fell in love with the spa bath!

The next time we visit our relatives in Burnie I won't need to look for accommodation, I already know where we will be staying! I'd give this place 100 starts. but for Trip Advisor, 5 will have to do.

We spent two nights here with our children and it was just perfect. There was so much for our little ones to do and Derek went out of his way to taken them out to feed the sheep and chickens. There were books, magazines and activities indoors and out for kids. We will definitely be back. Thank you Derek and Sue.

We have booked Hideaway retreat for the week because we are working in the area, but were surprised to find it is the perfect place for a holiday. The house is very clean and decorated with discrete charm typical of someone with an artistic eye. Kitchen is superbly equipped, bathroom tidy and functional, and the farm-like surrounds are a delight. The hosts (Sue and Derek) are as lovely as can be and leave us to ourselves behind the sweet-smelling gardens. We will be back - even if it's for boring old work.

We cannot begin to describe how amazing the little cottage was! Clean, comfortable, peaceful, homely and when you woke up in the morning, it was the birds and the sunlight softly filtering through the tree’s that welcomed you to the new day! Sue and Derek thought if everything - Whenever you thought you might need something all you needed to do was open a cupboard or look into a shelf and it was there - just like you would find it at home! I would say this was the best experience we have had! Sue and Derek are wonderful hosts! Really made our trip to Burnie- only a 10min away and Cradle Mountain - approx 1hr! Would definitely recommend and would definitely come back - hopefully soon :)

This two storey self contained cottage just outside of Burnie is just Devine. It is run by two charming people who have done everything possible to ensure you have the best stay possible. The upstairs bedrooms are roomy and very comfortable while the downstairs living area makes you feel like you want to stay forever. The grounds have both sheep and chickens and if you have young kids you can go on an egg hunt. This is the perfect place to base yourself when exploring the area.

Lovely views out of every window in this country cottage, spacious and clean. Very well-equipped. My son enjoyed feeding the sheep, collecting eggs from the chickens and jumping on the trampoline. Overall, an enjoyable stay in the peace and quiet of the country. The hosts were extremely friendly and very approachable.
