Wanderlust Cottage has been totally rebuilt and is now open for guests. You can rent the entire cottage that sleeps up to 5 people We feature 1 king single room with shared bathroom and kitchen , 1 double (2 king single beds) with shared bathroom and Kitchen or the family room (2 king single beds) with private bathroom. There is free WiFi, a big screen TV, medium fridge and tea and coffee facilities. The back deck overlooks the river and the huge expanse of lawn, the perfect place to relax and sip wine in the evenings. We have a fire pit, a barbecue on the deck and even steps to the river for swimming or fishing. Located close to Derby Park it is a short walk to the Dorset Hotel for meals and of course the historic town of Derby. We provide a Cook Top, Fridge, Kettle, Toaster, Toaster Oven, Microwave, Coffee machine, cutlery, dishes and linens. The bathrooms have shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. This Self Contained Cottage is the perfect place to unwind. The shared lounge area and kitchen area is functional and pretty. You can park in front of the cottage, walk down 3 small steps and the rest is all on one level. We even have room for a couple of tents on the riverbank!
Ray, an ex paramedic, has been co-managing St Paul's Bed and Breakfast in Derby for 6 years and is an experienced and congenial host. He can answer any questions you may have about the local area, other locations in Tasmania, bike trails, and the best way to get the most out of your holiday experience.
Derby is the mountain bike capital of Australia and one of the jewels of Tasmania. History, gorgeous walking and biking trails, the newly opened Derby Lake - perfect for a short stay and close to St Helen's and the Bay of Fires. Half way between Launceston and St Helen's it features a wonderful mix of old and new. There are waterfalls nearby, views everywhere, nature, rainforest walks, bike rental and great food as well. We think that the Pyenganna Cheese Factory is well worth a visit and also the Pub in the Paddock that is next door to it. As I am writing this, we are soon going into winter so please keep in mind that traveling after dark in rural Tasmania is not for the faint of heart. The roads are narrow, steep and covered in wildlife at dusk, so please plan ahead and take care when traveling. Hope to see you soon! Note: If your mobile phone is with Optus you may not have the best reception outside of Launceston and Hobart.
