About Derby Digs

Derby Digs Cottage Accommodation

The name “Digs” means lodgings and it is our vision to specialise in lodgings for mountain bikers and families. It is our aim to make your stay with us as comfortable and memorable as possible.

Derby Digs Cottage accommodation is in the heart of Derby Tasmania and just 50m from the trail head.

The address is 5 Cascade Dam Road and it is the closest property to the trail head and shuttle service. Ride down the lawn, out the front gate and you’re on the trails! Within 300m walking distance of the main street, pubs, cafes and bike shop – everything is literally on your doorstep.

The recently renovated cottage is a light and spacious with three bedrooms that sleeps up to 8 people. Two single beds in the main bedroom; 1 comfortable double bunk and a single bed in bedroom 2 and 3.

Warm up at the crackling log wood fired heater in the cottage. Open plan living offers a relaxed and comfortable space for socialising.  Magnificent views of the Ringarooma river and Derby Forest Reserve. Relax on a comfy outdoor lounge on the deck. Watch the kids play in the generous garden.

Sit around the fire pit and share tales of your sensational ride down the awesome Derby Trails. Watch the stunning array of stars.

Your bikes are an important item on the trip and a bike wash bay is available. Degreaser, rags and brushes are provided. Derby Digs Cottage has a secure bike lock up & repair shed with pump and basic tools.
