How to find us at “Hide-away Cottage Retreat” 500 Ridgley Highway, Burnie, Tasmania  Phone: 03 6435 7330.

We are located in the rolling hills, approx. 6km South of the Port of Burnie on the Ridgley Highway B18. About a five or six minute drive from Burnie.If you are using a GPS system please enter your destination as 500 Ridgley Highway Mooreville.

We are about a 2 hour drive from Launceston airport and about 35 minutes from Devonport.  Assuming you will be coming from that direction, take the Bass Highway to Burnie.  As you approach the Burnie city area, stay in the left hand lane, you will see over hanging signs, the one you want is the sign for Ridgley (Cradle Mt) (Strahan) on the B18, this is a LEFT hand turn.  Follow the B18 towards Ridgley.

(Coming down the Bass Highway from the Stanley area, look for the same sign just under the bridge when entering Burnie, and turn to your right.)

300 m before you get here you’ll see a Blue road sign on the left hand side of the road, you are close now, turn on your right indicator and start to slow down.
We are at the very crest of the slight rise ahead of the sign and there you’ll see a blue Tourism sign “Hide-away Cottage Retreat” pointing to our entry on the RH side.  There is a slip lane on your left, so it is safe to pull into the centre to turn.

If you are coming from the Ridgley area along the Ridgley Highway, still look for a road sign on the LH side of the Road, and turn into the driveway opposite the tourism sign on your Left.

Once over the cattle grid, follow the cottage sign and you’ll eventually see the cottage.  We will pop up and see you when you are settled.  Currently we do have sheep on the property so if the adjoining gate is closed, please close it after you.  If it is open then it is safe not to shut it.

For provisions there is a Woolworths at Upper Burnie on your way through from Burnie, it is on the right hand side of the road, you can’t miss it.

Looking forward to meeting you and wishing you a happy and enjoyable stay at Hide-Away Cottage.

Hide Away is a charming rustic cottage where the owners have gone the extra distance to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of their guests. The many thoughtful additional touches were much appreciated. It is also the most child friendly establishment I have come across, with abundant activities for both indoor and outdoor entertainment provided.5/5 by ,
You won't regret choosing this place! We had a wonderful time. The cottage was quiet, cosy and had everything we needed. The owners have thought of so many little things to make your stay great. We especially loved having a fireplace and wood supplies left outside the door each day. Sue and Derek are friendly and so fantastic to deal with, both before we arrived and while we were there. You'll love it!5/5 by ,
Loved our stay. The cottage was beautiful and very cosy, quiet and with no neighbours apart from the sheep. Our hosts were extremally helpful and welcoming while respecting our privacy. Hope to come back one day - this time for longer than 5 days.5/5 by ,
Wish we could have stayed longer. A wonderful couple of days spent here at the end of a long touring holiday of Tasmania. Our two young children rated it the best place ever. The hospitality is second to none and everything we needed and so much more was here for us. Sue's homemade soup on our last night was a godsend after a big day out exploring. Can't wait to come back and experience it in the winter.5/5 by ,
Our daughters loved feeding the sheep.It was an excellent base for our day trips. It was cosy, and perfect for our needs.We loved the fireplace and the lovely touches - books, games, dvds, folded towels, well appointed kitchen. Just like coming home every night.5/5 by ,
Our hosts Sue & Derek ensured the Cottage had everything I mean everything you could ever need from tea bags to cottonbuds to a bowl of easter eggs. Even things we had not even thought of were there. It was a very relaxing place to come home to each day after sightseeing all day. We wish we could of stayed for a couple more weeks.5/5 by ,
We found the Hide Away Cottage to be a very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. It was far beyond our expectations and we really appreciated all the little extras which were supplied - even down to the lovely peonies on the dining table and the soft music playing when we arrived. Our hosts went out of their way to make us comfortable and welcome.5/5 by , ACT

We enjoyed 4 wonderful nights at Hideaway during our honeymoon. The place is beautiful and the special treats as we walked in the door, such as a CD playing and the wood fire burning made us feel so special. A great place to spend a few lazy days (like we did) or for exploring the surrounding countryside. We will be back.5/5 by , NSW

The Hideaway Cottage Retreat was absolutely A1 we couldn't fault a thing. It was just like walkng in to our own home so beautifully decorated, the kitchen had everything appliance we needed to cook and cater for our stay, the beds were very comfortable with beautiful linens and a huge cupboard of thick bath towels (not just 1 each and hope they dry), beautiful thick bath robes, a cupboard of games a trampoline and bush swing to keep the kids entertained. The owners lit us a fire while we were out to keep the cottage warm and had dry wood in a basket at the door for us for during the night. The owners have thought of everything you would possibily need for a very peaceful and relaxing stay - congratulations 10/10 - we will be back and so will our friends - and thanks TakeABreak for allowing us to find this little piece of heaven5/5 by , NSW

Very comfortable, cosy cottage. A home away from home. The owners have thought of everthing. We loved our stay there.Excellent value for money with good discount for longer stays.5/5 by , TAS
This accommodation is the secret not to share with others. Bill and Winsome have set up a most comfortable accn that has every conceivable thing you will need considered. We stayed in both nights for our meals to enjoy the comfort of the place as much as possible. Hosts are very welcoming and made us feel at home. We will go back. Great value for money and suitable for either a couple or a family.5/5 by , ACT
What more could I add to these comments that haven't already been said, nothing, as its all been said. All I can do is reinterate how great the accomodation is, the views, the animals and our hosts Bill and Winsome. If your looking for a wonderful quiet holiday then don't pass this place up.

The best accommodation we ever had! It was so nice that we didn't want to go and explore the area, just stay at the cottage and relax. Highly recommended.5/5 by , VIC
What a great family getaway.The kids loved all the activities outside, especially the swing in the tree. Inside the cottage everything had been thought of, a true home away from home. The hosts were friendly and very helpful.Thanks for a great time.5/5 by , QLD

Beautiful,relaxing accomodation. Very clean,comfortable and well furnished with friendly hosts. We would have to stay weeks to read all the books and watch all the videos on hand. We felt at home immediatly.5/5 by , TAS
It was a beautiful peaceful place to stay. Everything was thought of from the wood constantly being refilled for the fire place to the house being spotless.Bill evan made a placemat for my husband for his 30th Birthday ( so thoughtful) and he came around with dvd's for our daughter. Just a wonderful place to stay. I recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from the rat race just to relax.5/5 by , TASMANIA
Sorry this is late! again!! Things get so hectic when you get back from holidays, things tend to get away from you. We could not appreciate our stay enough, thats why we keep coming back!!! I'm not going to spoil it for anyone but you must visit the Hide Away Cottage and all it's wonderful surprises it has in store for you. Not to mention the hosts will be the best you've ever met, the little touches they create each visit add homeyness and tranquility that you never want to leave. I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere that makes you feel like your not away from the comforts of your own home and surroundings. I know I'm usually relieved to be home from holidays but we were so sad to leave we didn't want to go back home. We are still looking for work over there so you never know one day we might just get back there permanently, if not we would love to see you again soon when we can get more holidays. Take care Winsome & Bill.Sarah & ScottAlbury NSW5/5 by , NSW
Great place to stay with very welcoming hosts.Attention to detail superb.5/5 by , WA
Well located, quiet, peaceful cottage well equipped for all of our needs! We arrived late at night, tired and cranky in the rain, and found the fire lit, soft music playing and beautiful fairy lights lighting up the beautiful cottage. I've been all over Europe, parts of Asia and Australia, and this is the best accommodation I've ever stayed in. I highly recommend Bill and Winsome's property. Thank you so much.5/5 by , NSW
Very comfortable with excellent furnishings.Quiet setting, peaceful surrounds. Friendly operators who provided very good service. Good value.Will be returning.5/5 by , Q
The hideaway cottage was such a surprise package. I thought I had actually come to the wrong place. Could such a beautiful cottage with soft fairy lights, ambient music playing and the log fire burning be a cottage reserved for temporary guests!? But it was indeed. The feeling that we were staying in a very special place is still with us now. Thank you to Bill and Winsome for such a lovely stay.5/5 by , NSW
My apologies for taking so long to reply to this feedback but I wanted to have something really inspiring to say about the cottage. Left me speechless- truly breathtaking. It would take far too long for me to write all the good things about it. To mention all the words to describe how the whole place made us feel would be impossible!!!!! ;) Winsome & Bill did so much for us in preparation of our arrival (I won’t spoil the surprises.) The property was the most extraordinary place we have been to ever!!!!!! Overwhelming to think of the effort they must go through in running such a beautifully set-up, well thought out cosy place. We wished we could have stayed there forever. We would have been pleased even if we could have just stayed another night or two but we already had pre-booked accommodation for our remaining 3 nights. Unfortunately we had to reluctantly move on and say goodbye to the only place that has felt as comfortable as home in our travels. We are hoping to come back down in November this year and stay a week this time. I just have to organise the expenses but I’ll be booking very soon.Kind regards,Sarah & ScottNSW5/5 by , NSW
Absolutely fantastic. Every little detail thought of. Amazingly welcoming hosts who not only welcomed us but our screaming toddler! Do not give this a miss if you have children - its a perfect relaxing haven for you while they run about and play on all the equipment provided. We loved every minute!5/5 by , SA
Accommodation was just beautiful, very clean and attention to detail in the decor does not go unnoticed; kind and helpful hosts; Cottage is very close to house of hosts, however privacy is respected5/5 by , S.A.
Our stay at Hide-away Cottage was wonderful. Winsome and Bill made it very personal without being intrusive. So close to Burnie but tranquil and with a real country feel. From the great selection of CD's, DVD's, suggestions on places to visit, lovely china and furnishings, the welcome note - they had thought of everything. It spoilt us for the rest of our stay in Tasmania.5/5 by , QUEENSLAND
We stayed at Hide-away cottage from 27.12.06 till 01.01.07. It was the great place to stay. Accommodation is just 5+, service is not less. We enjoyed every minute being in the house and out. The furniture, dishes, beds, music - everything was fantastic. Kids had a ball playing outside on the playground and jumping on the trampoline or playing with the dog. We had a ball having a cup of coffee in the beds of flowers outside or just having relaxing spa. The owners even had a photo of the property with our name on it, which we forgot to take with us. They sent it to our home address. That was very surprising. Thank you very much for that. Now that photo stands on our desk and reminds us about our great holiday in Tasmania. If you are going in Tasmania or just want to visit the Burnie area, I strongly recommend Hide-away Cottage to anyone. Whether you have a family or just a couple you will enjoy every minute of that house.5/5 by , NSW

Excellent, the best accommodation we had during our two weeks in Tassie. Friendly hosts, families well catered for. Very homely.5/5 by , SA
Linda and I spent 3 wonderful weeks touring Tassie and it wasn't long enough. We stayed in a variety of accommodation and I can say without reservation that Bill and Winsome were by far the nicest hosts we encountered, the cottage was perfect. Everything worked, the kitchen "great", loved the spa, the bed was so comfortable I wanted to take it home and when you come home late after a days sightseeing feeling happy but cold you find Bill has lit the fire for you "wonderful". The cottage was better than a home away from home. We will be back sometime in 2008 for a longer stay and have encouraged friends to book their stay in Tassie with Bill and Winsome at Hide-away Cottage Retreat.5/5 by , QLD
What can I say but awesome, so clean, quiet and peaceful,lovely hosts, great price. Cathy Smith 10/105/5 by , TAS
We had an excellent stay at Hide-away Cottage Retreat. We were in the area on business and the retreat suited us after a long day's work. It was nice to get back in the evening and find a roaring fire had warmed the place up. The accommodation was excellent and would be a great retreat for couples or small families. It looks as though both would be well catered for, both in accommodation, surrounds, down to board games, music and books. It was definitely value for money and the service and little touches were great.5/5 by , SA
What do you say about perfection! This place is truely magical. The hide-away cottage is the best ever self contained accommodation I have come across. The house is gorgeous with everything you need and more available. This house caters to both couples and families in all ways possible. The hosts Bill and Winsome are fabulous and make your stay one that you are sure to remember. It is the perfect place to recharge and rediscover how great life really is. Thank you both and keep doing exactly what you are doing, its wonderful. With warm regards Jodie and Ben from Sydney.5/5 by , NSW
