From the the first contact I made with Belinda at Wagner's Cottages I knew that our stay was going to be relaxing and enjoyable. Belinda was very easy to negotiate with and very understanding of my particular wishes when I booked which made our stay very easy indeed. I was on the East Coast to conduct a wedding and requested...

From our very warm greetings on our arrival to our final goodbyes we were extremely pleased with Belinda and Kerry's care and thoughtfulness in stocking our cottage. They supplied freshly baked bread, fresh home-grown tomatoes, fresh eggs, etc. And they even supplied a decanter of port for after dinner enjoyment. Outside our back door was a beautiful rose garden and...

Thank you William ! You have made us happy, because the two of you enjoyed your stay in our Studio cottage. I think the vaulted timber ceiling enhances the cozy but spacious feeling of the cottage. Belinda does take a lot of time in setting up the cottages, so it is great that you enjoyed her efforts. Make sure you...

Unfortunately my husband and I only spent one night at Wagners cottage. I could have easily spent a few days enjoying the surroundings and the beautiful cottage. The cottage was well presented and on opening the door to the kitchen, a loaf of freshly baked bread waited our arrival. The open fire was laid and after dinner which we prepared...

We recently spent two nights at this lovely property. We stayed in the Primrose Cottage, one of four cottages located on this expansive property. Our cottage had a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and spacious bathroom. Small flower vases graced every room. The furniture and bed were very comfortable and we were happy to use the washing machine and drying rack...

Thank you for the terrific review ! So glad that you were happy with the breakfast provisions.

Great location, close to the beach, Swansea town and only a short, picturesque drive to Freycinet and Wine Glass Bay. Owners Belinda and Kerry were very friendly and hospitable and have a knack for nice touches (e.g. Wine & Chocolates on arrival, freshly baked bread and free range eggs, etc). A memorable stay we will return!

So glad you two enjoyed your stay Brett ! Yes, we are lucky with our position on the picturesque East Coast. Maybe next time, when you both can enjoy a wine there are several vineyards in the area also !

We stayed in 'studio' which is much more spacious than I had expected. Lovely private garden, beautiful linens, great coffee, everything is great quality - gorgeous wraps for sitting in the garden in cooler weather. Very comfortable bed. A private paradise for a getaway with close access by car to freycinet national park. Worth a visit to the local, humble...

We keep coming back to Wagners because we can't find better. Accommodation is great, service is brilliant. We will continue to return here as often as we can. We have stayed in many hotels and B&B's around Tasmania but have not found one in this price range that equals Wagners.

This establishment is truely one of a kind. Friendly hosts providing a "human touch" for their guesses that goes far and beyond the service that you would normally expect.

Our four cottages are positioned throughout the estate and as such, enjoy an atmosphere of serenity and privacy.
