We stayed in Hollyhock cottage and there was everything you could hope for in a place to stay, and more. Comfortable bed, great shower and top notch kitchen appliances were the basics. Belinda also provided the extra touches - fresh flowers, fresh bread, fresh eggs - and even scones one day! Belinda was attentive without being intrusive, and made sure we had all we needed. This is a great base for exploring the east coast, with just under an hour to the Wine Glass Bay walk at Freycinet.

    Fantastic Place to Stay. From booking to staying everything was of the highest standard. Communication was great making the stay very easy. The cottage was so relaxing after a days exploring. Clean and comfortable with everything you could need for a short or long stay. Great open fire, very well equipped kitchen. Quiet and peaceful at night. Really sorry to leave. The homemade bread was an extra bonus!

    We have now established a habit of heading to Wagners Cottages, reserving Primrose Cottage as our base in March, for an indulgent annual getaway and St Patrick’s Day birthday celebration. Four years in a row and the novelty has not worn off. Belinda and Kerry are very gracious hosts who are attentive but respectful of guests privacy. They have a wealth of local knowledge to share and are creative producers of home made bread (Belinda) and featherlight scones (Kerry).

    The facilities and all the little extras ( fine coffees & teas, Tasmanian juice and butter, freshly laid eggs, chocolate treats and Port nightcaps) all elevate the home away from home experience. Nearby there are scenic areas to explore and delights to discover. We have a list of favourites that include scallops at the Swansea RSL, oysters at Mishell’s Oystershack by Moulting Lagoon and Thai Mussels at Devil’s Corner winery. But staying put in the gardens, having a Netflix binge in front of the toasty wood fire or relaxing in the spa bath are lazy luxurious options too.

    So if you after a break to revive your soul and restore your spirits we wholeheartedly recommend a visit. (Our next year’s reservation is already booked)

    We spent two nights at Wagner cottages with another couple. We had a two bedroom cottage and they had a single bedroom cottage near the "free" herb vege garden. Our host Belinda was extremely accommodating. Each cottage had all the amenities of home, beautiful fresh baked bread and eggs from her chickens along with cereal and great yogurt from the Tamar valley close by. Stepping into the cottage is like walking back in time with antique furniture in the simple life of the 40's and 50's. They are truly time capsules, even the peacock walking through the garden at dawn created a country nostalgic bygone era feel. Well worth the stay in Swansea. The beds were comfortable and plenty of room. Even the port on the sideboard was a homely touch and unexpected. Security gates allow secure entry exit.

    We stayed in the Hollyhock Cottage for 2 nights, and we all had a fantastic time! The owners go to a lot of trouble to provide everything you could possibly need. There was fresh milk (not long life), coffee, a range of tea, fresh eggs from their chickens, yoghurt, freshly made bread, and scones.... even a carafe of port...
    There were plenty of blankets, beautifully soft dressing gowns and slippers...
    And the gardens were stunning, with an abundance of birdlife.
    What was most enjoyable for us, was it was evident that the cottages and everything in them was of the highest quality... from the crockery, to the furnishings, beds...We highly recommend staying here!

    We stayed at Wagner’s Cottages as a convenient jump off point for Freycinet National Park, and it was wonderful. The propitiators were friendly and did everything they could to enhance our stay, including making us fresh scones when we came back from hiking, and providing us with freshly laid eggs and just picked grapefruits for breakfast. Ours was the smallest cottage and it was still plenty big and very comfortable for the two of us. It is furnished and decorated with great attention to detail. The grounds are a delight. We will definitely go back if we are fortunate to be back in the area.
