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 a week (Closed Mondays) (Open most Public Holidays including Public Holiday Mondays). A design gallery and gift shop, chock full of Tasmanian products, completes the small complex which, with its cobblestone walkways and old street lamps, is reminiscent of an English scene! All four cottages are four-star self-rated and decorated in a colonial style blended with modern touches. They are well appointed, full of character and charm and extremely comfortable and warm. All are fully self-contained. We are located within a stone’s throw of the beaches, eateries, attractions and shops.
