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.

  • We loved our stay in Tinkers cottage

    We loved our stay in Tinkers cottage. Clyde is a beautifully peaceful place and the cottage (a real stone historic cottage) is located central to the village. The large shaded garden complete with loungers was fabulous after a days biking. The cottage had everything we needed for our 5night stay.

    Location right in the middle of Clyde and easy walking distance to the area. Beautiful old cottage with much history. Small and only made for two but very quaint and a lovely garden to sit in and enjoy the day.
