We recently had our winter wedding at Tarraleah, which was our second visit to the property/village. There are so many highlights about our wedding weekend, but (aside from marrying my darling and spending time with my friends and family) the three stand outs for me were the stunning wilderness scenery, the beautifully restored Art Deco accommodation (with fireplaces!) and the most amazing, abundant and flavourful, heartiest food I have ever had at any wedding ever!
The staff at Tarraleah were a pleasure to deal with from the minute we decided to have our wedding here (especially Kirstie and Julian) - very efficient, knowledgeable and willing to help in any way. And when we arrived at Tarraleah that level of service didn't change.
Our rooms were immaculately clean and comfortable. The linen was fresh and soft and there was always an abundance of wood delivered for our fires.
Another thing to mention is the breakfast. Smoked salmon, smallgoods, capers and a variety of cheese and pastries are served in addition to the most superior continental breakfast I can remember having. And apparently the also run a cooking school - I plan to look into this on our next visit.
There are no negatives about staying at Tarraleah - even the lack of fast wi-fi feels like a positive. If you fancy a couples weekend away, a wedding or a week in a cottage with the family in the Tasmanian wilderness, then Tarraleah is the place for you. Close to an abundance of walking tracks and trails with breathtaking scenery at every turn there will be no time to be bored. After a day of exploring ask to have a soak in one of the hot tubs - the wooden doors open out to magical views over the ravine - heaven!
You would expect a lot less from a place that was double the price. Tarraleah is one of Tasmania's best kept secrets!!!
Oh, I forgot to mention the hot spiced apple cider - YUM!
See you soon Tarraleah!
