The Tinker’s Cottage, Clyde, is situated in the heart of the Historic Precinct and in close proximity to the cafes, hotel and shops. The Central Otago Rail Trail, Wineries and Lake Dunstan are nearby.

This little schist cottage, one of the very early cottages of Clyde, was the home of Tinker Rae who mended pots and pans for the early settlers. Later it served as the Maternity Home for Clyde with a resident midwife.

After 150 years it can now claim another first - running water on tap, with the addition in late 2011 of an new ensuite bathroom. It is sited in a private garden setting between the old Dunstan Times Building and Morice Cottage the former home of the first Doctor in Clyde and his Tent Hospital Complex.

The history, ambience, charm and tranquillity, make this little Central Otago town very special.

    Tinkers Cottage is an ideal spot for a romantic get away, it has comfort, warmth, loads of character and is just across the road from Olivers'. A special get away place, easy to find, lovely location with all the charm of yesteryear. Loved it.

    The cottage was clean, tidy and the bed very comfortable. The barbecue worked great. I enjoyed my stay there. The heaters in the cottage kept it very warm. There is a lovely outdoor area to sit and enjoy the sun. Thank you.
