It's a fanastic experience to totally escaped from City to such a beautiful and natural farm stay at Benbellen!! My kids were so enjoying to be so close to animals and especially thanks to the Ginger Cat (is so cute!!!). Sherry and Peter are also very friendly and made our trip very memeroable. Certainly will recommend to friends or family.

We have just returned from another wonderful holiday at Peter and Sherry's B&B in the Hannam Vake valley. We can't recommend this place too highly - the accomodation is excellent, the hosts are always both friendly and responsive to our needs and the location is a delight. All in all, just what you want for a relaxing holiday in the...

Well my partner and I booked this accommodation as we thought it would be great to stay in the country in the middle of nowhere so to speak. We stayed in Port Macquarie for 2 nights in fantastic accommodation and then we went to Benbellan Farm. The owners Sherry and Peter were not very hospitable or welcoming. We spent an...

We have been to quite a lot of different places to stay, and this is one we will always come back to as a stop for trips along the East Coast. We have stayed here three times now, and for the price of Cherry Tree Cottage, it is terribly good value!! It seems over time too, the cottage has been...

We've just spent 3 wonderful days with Sherri, Peter and all the animals. The farm is a wonderful retreat if you want to get away from it all and enjoy the countryside and animals. Breakfast and dinner are fab - homemade and yummy. Rooms were homely and contained great quality locally produced furniture. We had the balcony room and enjoyed...

When you stay, Peters cooking will delight. Sherry is a wealth of information on the local area and is the perfect hostess. A wonderful place to relax. The room with private balcony was excellent within the main house. Gary and Elvira

Such a hidden gem. Had a fantastic stay there. Peter & Sherry are so nice. Peter's cooking is fantastic. The Cherry Tree Cottage is so well kept and new. My 2 teenagers and hubby loved the place the moment they stepped in. All kinds of tea, coffee, cereal, jams, butter, freshly baked bread and farm fresh eggs are made available....

We stayed at Penlan Cottage (same owners) about 6kms from the Benbellan Retreat. It is a two bedroom cottage on 1.5 acres of land. There is nothing to fault! Sherry stocked the pantry with breakfast supplies including freshly baked bread and eggs from the farm (both delicious). We had BBQs on the terrace while our little dog ran around in...

We stayed here for just one night as part of our honeymoon en route to Sydney from Brisbane. I cannot praise the owners (Peter and Cherry) enough. Peter in particular went out of his way to help me with some questions over the Christmas period when I was in the process of booking. He took the time to write to...

Stayed at Cherry Tree Cottage for 4 days in the summer. This place is a bit further away from the main town or beach than we anticipated but the views were stunning and the place very well kept with lovely furnishings. My 4 year old daughter was captivated by the alpacas and also got the chance to see the cows...
