Red Delicious Cottage

COTTAGE FROM $150 Per Night

The Red Delicious Cottage is a tranquil and cosy 1 bedroom self-contained cottage set amongst 30 acres of natural bushland in Taranna, your gateway to Port Arthur.

This cottage is perfect for couples, or a family up to 4 as it has a queen bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa beds in the lounge. Inside, you will find a fully-equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge room with an inviting wood heater to keep you warm during the cold nights.

Check out our charming animal sanctuary and the historical Rosedale Story that will keep the family entertained for hours!

What our guests often say…

So cute, loved our stay here, has lots of farm animals to look at close by. Really quiet and quaint place.

Nichola, Ireland review

Self-contained. The menagerie on the grounds were charming – kangaroos, parrots, budgies, camels, ponies, goats, alpacas, cattle, sheep, donkeys, cattle, macaw, chickens. Proximity to Tasman peninsula features.

 Graeme, Australia review

I was amazed to see they have a zoo next door and a museum it was an awesome bonus. The owners were happy to talk about future developments and I’m going back some day, the location was great.

Maria, Aus review

Considering the price we excepted something basic at best, but this cottage was so cosy and cute, with the fire in the living room, and it was the best morning ever with animals, sun and lovely staff
