Spent one night on a stopover going north. Should have stayed at least 2 nights. Set in tranquil bush setting overlooking the Bellinger River. Lovely touches like the basket breakfast added to the stay. Will definitely will be back.

I have stayed here several times over the past years. I first picked it because it is pet friendly and I like to stay overnight to break up the drive from Sydney to Byron bay. The cabins are very nice and always clean with a lovely view of the river. The owners (both the old ones and the new managers...

The cabins have a rustic feel, even the wood of the cabin smells nice, the cabins are very cosy and warm. Awesome place to unwind, the river is crystal clear and we both took the kayaks supplied and totally chilled out on the river, seeing beautiful bass swimming in the weeds and mirror glass creek surrounded by rain forest. I...

We recently stayed in the dairy and it was amazing. It was warm and homely. Marg & John were amazing hosts. The kids enjoyed the canoeing and i have never seen them so content. We would highly recommend these cottages for any length of stay.

Bellingen is a picturesque town on the North Coast of NSW. I'm biased because this is where I grew up however, having said that, this is the first time I've stayed in Bellingen in something other than the family home and it was a good choice. We booked Cottage 1 for 4 nights it was certainly a good choice. The...

I stayed for two lovely peaceful nights with my two small dogs. Location is spot-on, close to town and beautiful. Best of, it's pretty much on the river. Cottage Two is very private and surrounded by gorgeous trees teeming with birds. Loved it. Bed is very good quality and comfortable, as is everything else about this cottage. The heating is...

This property is well located on the Bellingen river about 5 minutes drive out of the town. We stayed in the Diary and had booked for the Easter long weekend (3 nights) however ended up only staying 2. We left early and found accommodation elsewhere for the last night. " It was dirty, damp and smelly and cobweb infested" -...

Stayed 2 nights in Cottage 1 as part of Brisbane-Sydney road trip. Our Wonderfully friendly host, Marg, made our short stay very comfortable. Trip coincided with Bellingen community market held every 3rd Saturday of the month. Recommend the Scones at the Old Butter Factory cafe, Dinner at Oak Street Food & Wine restaurant, Kayak on the river.

We stayed for my brothers wedding so rented the newest cabin, which was luxurious, and also the dairy, which was quaint, clean, rustic and very affordable. Marg and John were great hosts and very friendly. If you wake up early morning you can get out on the kayaks and see many fishes in the river. Peaceful serenity, we could hear...
