BELLTHORPE COTTAGE: Easy to take it Easy!

Enjoy the Surroundings

Get away from the crowds! Get into the country! Get into relax mode!

Located just over an hour from Brisbane in the lush, leafy area of Bellthorpe, the cottage is nestled in the green hills on a working farm, complete with its own rainforest, waterfall and resident wildlife.

With 120 peaceful acres, the timber cottage is a great place to get away from it all and take in the atmosphere. Accommodation in the cottage is self catering with wide verandahs, a well equipped kitchen, queen size bed, single bed in a separate room, wood heater. If you prefer, meals can be ordered with advance notice.

Check out the wild life, discover the rainforest, take in the sounds of nature, rest at the waterfalls, take a walk around and explore, tour the district or just sit back and relax, but whatever you do, you'll enjoy the surroundings.

At Bellthorpe, in the hills, between Maleny and Woodford, Queensland.

Farming to Retreat

Over 100 years ago, about half the property was opened up to become a dairy farm until some 20 years ago when beef cattle became the main agricultural pursuit. The remaining half is natural rainforest and ajoins Bellthorpe National Park. The property is now a hide away retreat, well away from the hussle and bussle of city life.

The modern timber cottage has all the facilities you will need for self catering. It has a well equipped kitchen (4 burner gas top cooker, microwave, electric jug, convection oven, toaster, radio / CD and settings for two), wide verandahs, big windows, a wood heater and is furnished including a queen size bed. Linen is provided. Bring your own food and personal items. Note that mobile phone reception is marginal but most comments are that is a good thing! There's a basic TV and DVD player.

Walking tracks on the farm will take you through the paddocks, to the creek, rainforest, waterfall, Bellthorpe National Park boundary and to glimpses of the Mary Valley. All this and you are only just over an hour from Brisbane and half an hour to Maleny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful & relaxing! An amazing place to stay, beautiful cottage and awesome nature walks on the property! The waterfalls were nice to see. Was great to find a place that allowed my dog to stay too. Perfect. Wish we could have stayed longer but looking forward to going back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RARE FIND! Absolutely what we needed. No distractions, just peace and quiet. My dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we loved walking the tracks around the property and through the rain forest. Hope to visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Getaway! The cottage was the perfect getaway location! It was very quiet and peaceful. Everything my partner and I had hoped for for our weekend away. Dave was a wonderful host and greeted us on arrival with enthusiasm and plenty of knowledge and expertise of the area for 4WDing and hiking. The surrounding area is perfect for an adventure enthusiast. We spent both days off 4WDing through Bellthorpe National Park. Both Branch Creek and Beacon Roads were challenging but lots of fun! Thanks again for such a fantastic weekend away and we look forward to coming again in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a wonderful time at the cottage. The property is absolutely gorgeous with splendid rainforests and views surrounding the location. The cottage provided everything we needed, and we enjoyed learning about the local wildlife thanks to all the information readily available at the cottage. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and cozy; and our hosts were so lovely, courteous and helpful in helping us get there and ensuring we had a good stay. They were quick to reply and all of our questions were answered before we arrived. We definitely recommend Bellthorpe Cottage - the perfect place if you are looking for a quiet getaway in the beautiful hinterlands. Thanks again Wendy and Dave for such a pleasant stay!
