The hosts were exceptional and went out of their way to ensure we had the best stay. Cottage was immaculate with every thing that we could need. Breakfast the next morning was the icing on the cake. Definitely left great memories and hope to return one day.

A well appointed self contained cottage. Our hosts Chris and Gretta treated us like old friends. The cottage was stocked with breakfast goodies were warm, comfy, very clean with old world charm. The cost was very reasonable. If you visit Stanley make sure you give Touchwood Cottages a go. You will not be disappointed.

Our stop over at the quaint Touchwood Cottages nestled at the base of the Nut in the seaside historical township of Stanley was a favourite highlight of our six days in Tasmania. We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Looking for a breath of fresh air? If so, you can't beat the quaint little seaside village of Stanley on Tasmania's North West Coast. With its whistling wind and gorgeous countryside, Stanley is the ideal base for exploring all the natural beauty and attractions the region has to offer. Noted for its friendliness and warm hospitality Touchwood Cottages are situated in the heart of Stanley and are the perfect place to relax and unwind. There is an excellent cafe on-site using an abundance of local fresh produce open six days of the week and some evenings. A design Gallery and gift shop, choc full of Tasmanian product, complete the small complex which, with its cobble stone walkways and old street lamps, is reminiscent of an English scene! All three cottages are 4 star rated and decorated in a colonial style blended with modern touches. They are well appointed, full of character and charm and extremely comfortable. All are fully self-contained. We are located within a stone's throw of the beaches, eateries, attractions & shops. Hearty breakfast supplies, a fresh fruit bowl and chocolates with port are included in your tariff. ... more   less
