EarthHouse is a unique guesthouse, built from local rammed earth, situated in the picturesque hills of the North Coast of New South Wales.

Located just 10 minutes from Bangalow on a 100 acre working farm, EarthHouse comprises of two independent suites, each with queen bed, large ensuite bathroom, dressing room, breakfast pantry, and an adjoining private courtyard.

Prices start from $200 per suite per night (ie. for a maximum of two people, not four!).

A typical seasonal breakfast includes freshly ground local coffee, loose leaf teas, freshly squeezed juice, fresh seasonal fruit, home-baked sour dough bread, homemade spreads, muesli and yoghurt.

The EarthHouse Experience

The EarthHouse philosophy is tasteful simplicity, inspired by and sympathetic to, the natural environment. Every care has been made to ensure the comfort of guests, whilst being sensitive to the earth from which it was built. Both rooms have spectacular views from the wide verandah, across the Corndale Valley and beyond to the Nightcap ranges.

The EarthHouse began when owners Alastair and Jackie Black, moved to the area in 2005 from a sheep and cattle station in North West NSW. After many years of experience with renovating houses, they endeavored to build an ecologically sound house and cottage that included many of the best ideas from previous homes. The rammed earth approach to building was chosen because of its unique look, and its exceptional thermal qualities.

Life cannot get any better than this. Morning call by the birds, breakfast with the stunning view, afternoon tea in the courtyard and evening wine in the moonlight. Thank you for sharing this view with us! Special thanks for the homemade biscuits, fresh juices, and home-grown fruits. We had a most peaceful getaway at EarthHouse and we will certainly be back. Yin and Lukas, Sydney (Christmas 2009)

The location is excellent. EarthHouse is close to all surrounding villages and yet far enough away. Thanks to Jackie and Alastair who have created a piece of paradise and can share it with others. Brendan and Leesa, Brisbane (March 2010)

Great views, peaceful location, and wonderful hosts. What more can you ask for!? The open fire was fantastic. Thank you. Julie, Melbourne (June 2010)

What an amazing place in an amazing location! The EarthHouse idea is so well planned and thought-out and its construction and design are fantastic. This is a little treasure. It is simple, and yet very tasteful in its finishings and the peace and quiet just add to its charm. A very perfect escape from the madness of the city to bring you back to Earth. Nathan and Karen (June 2010)

The EarthHouse is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We were looking for somewhere to have some R&R and certainly found that at The Earth House. The stunning hinterland views, the serenity of the property, the comfortable furnishings, the freshly squeezed juice and home made muesli, yogurt, fresh fruit, yummy sour dough toast and freshly brewed coffee for breakfast all made for a delightful few days away. We also had cafes, restaurants, beach and hinterland all within a short drive. Thanks to Jackie's suggestions we saw new places we never knew about. We would highly recommend a stay at The Earth House and enjoy the spoils it has to offer. We will be visiting again. Robyn and Garry

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in everyway. Idyllic setting, beautiful building, chic comfortable quality furnishings and bedding. Warm friendly unobtrusive hosts, delicious breakfasts. It isnt easy to find great value accomodation that delivers a real retreat while being so close to beaches, bushland, shopping and gourmet food but The Earth House does it all. It just doesnt get any better than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a lovely time at the EarthHouse. It is obvious that Alistair and Jackie have an appreciation for quality, beauty, peace and enjoyment - all the things that we needed before 2013 began. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 minutes from Bangalow, the location is inspring with an amazing view over the valley. The rooms are very quiet, comfortable and well designed. Breakfast is plentiful with fresh local fruit, yoghurt, muesli, bread and preserves. The home-made Anzac biscuits are addictive. Very welcoming and worth a return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really wanted to find a place to unwind for a few days after a busy year and The Earth House was just perfect.With it's mediterranean inspiration and beautiful setting in the hills just 10 minutes from Bangalow, it's hard not to relax. I found myself actually disappointed at having to leave to go in search of lunch or dinner but thankfully there are some beautiful cafes and restaurants close by and Jackie has some great suggestions.Jackie and Alasdair's hospitality is first rate and the small touches go a long way.I would really recommend this little slice of paradise to anyone, particularly those who want to be accessible to but not right in the heart of Byron Bay at peak season.
