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.

Historic property with lots of character, yet comfortable and cosy. In a super central location with amenities close by.
All the little touch's like home-made shortbread and a jug of fresh milk in the fridge. A lovely surprise to find a news paper on the door step in the morning! The best apricot tree in the garden that you can sit under and taste the delicious fruit. Wonderful stay!
Excellent central location. Nice gardens for telaxing under the apricot tree.
Fantastic property and location. Unfortunately we were a bit early to lounge under the apricot tree and taste the fruit.
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.
