Just 15 minutes drive is Bellingen town with an eclectic mix of quality cafes & shops, restaurants, festivals, events, music, art & craft, markets, more.

LGBT friendly.

Guest access

You can access The Dairy via a separate driveway entrance and park right outside your accommodation, ready to unpack with ease.

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts Mindy & Stuart welcome you to Moo River Farm and will be available to ensure your stay is as tranquil, comfortable and pleasant as possible. Beyond that you may engage with us in person or, when we are not there, by phone as much or as little as you desire. As it is a working boutique farm, we may cross paths. However rest assured your privacy is respected.

The neighbourhood

Summervilles Road consists mostly of boutique hobby farms and is nestled between the Bellinger River, the world-heritage-listed Gondwana rainforest and the majestic Dorrigo escarpment - with waterfalls and walks, the Promised Land/Gleniffer and the Never-Never Creek to the north, and Waterfall Way to the south taking you into Bellingen town in just 15 minutes. Alternatively, add another few minutes and take the scenic route through stunning Gleniffer and The Promised Land into town.

Getting around

Your own car is best. For the fit and active, bring your pushbikes.

The Space

The Dairy Bales is a lovingly converted, rustic one bedroom fully self-contained cabin approx 50m from the owners’ home and screened for privacy.

Ideally suits couples, or cosy family of up to 4. The 'library' sofa folds out to 2 single beds in the living area to accommodate 2 extras.

Main bedroom has queen sized bed with quality linen and mozzie net canopy.

Lounge room has 3-piece lounge, small dinner table, TV, Wifi on request and limited data, iPod dock, DVDs, books, games.

Large windows and doors can be thrown open in the warmer weather and a pot belly fire is easy to use as a romantic, rustic way to make the place toasty warm in winter.

Bathroom has a relaxing bath & shower.

Kitchenette consists of convection microwave, cooktop with 2 gas jets, basic supply of pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses, cutlery etc and basic cooking spices, spreads and sauces.

Large deck to relax on BBQ and cast iron chimenea are included, listen to the sound of the river, eat under the stars and generally watch the world go by.

Breakfast hamper at the beginning of your stay includes MooRiverFarm eggs, tomatoes, plus locally sourced muesli, fresh bread, mushrooms, marmalade, milk, butter, and a range of teas. There are brilliant cafes in town for what is arguably the best coffee around.

All water is sourced from the creek running through MooRiverFarm, which is pristine with a mineral like quality, suitable for drinking straight from the tap.

Guest access to farm

Explore the farm at your leisure.

15 acres is sub tropical rainforest, joining the heritage listed Dorrigo National Park and Great Dividing Range there are walking tracks up the mountain for the energetic.

Bellinger River lines one side of the property and is accessible for swimming, kayaking etc.

Star gazing is just amazing on a clear night - see if you can touch the Milky Way

There are chooks, horses and cows, fruit and macadamia trees, and a veggie patch and herbs. Eggs and in-season fruit, nuts and veggies are available.

No PETS please. We have an affectionate Springer Spaniel who will happily take cuddles if you’re inclined.

Smoking outside the Dairy only please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted and needed! I proposed in the living room of the Dairy! Stewart and Mindy were just lovely and really welcoming when we arrived. I wish we had more time there. Every corner of the beautiful dwelling is filled with warm and wonderful stimuli. The landscape surrounding is just incredible! We sat around at night talking in front of the fire and it just felt like it had been years since we had a moment of peace and silence. We loved every part of the accommodation, the people and surroundings... I made a sneaky enquiry about a wedding venue! We will be back. We travelled with our little toddler and she loved the cows and chickens. Can't fault my experience only that it was brief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cottage Loved our stay at THE DAIRY. Mindy and Stuart were wonderful and very helpful. Great touches in the cottage..nicely stocked pantry...loved the soap and extra bathroom products. Bed was very comfy and the cottage was delightfully decorated. We loved the quiet location and stunning scenery. Just hanging out on the deck was brilliant. Thanks for a magical stay. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing retreat Such a lovely break. Felt instantly relaxed and at home when we got there.The Dairy has been beautifully renovated and nothing was missing. The fridge was stocked with local produce and we were able to cook our own bacon and egg breakfast. Stuart and Mindy are very hospitable owners who made us feel welcome. The setting is spectacular and being 15 mins out of town meant we could enjoy more of the local scenery. The waterhole across the road was easy to find and we were able to enjoy a walk around the farm. Hoping the cow would give birth while we were there but unfortunately false alarm Thoroughly recommend the Dairy and hope to be back soon.
