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.

  • This is a beautiful historic cottage directly in the centre of Clyde

    This is a beautiful historic cottage directly in the centre of Clyde. The gardens are lovely. The bedroom was very nicely appointed and the new bathroom was wonderful. It was just the place we needed for our stay in Clyde.

  • This cottage is historic and virtually untouched on the outside, beautifully renovated...

    This cottage is historic and virtually untouched on the outside, beautifully renovated on the inside. It is right in the heart of Clyde.

  • Spotlessly clean

    Spotlessly clean. Very central to practically everything in Clyde, a perfect little nest for two. The shower is fantastic - nearly blew me through the wall!! Lovely garden which we would have used more if we hadn't been out and about so much.
