Our beautiful farmstay is set on an 8 acre biodynamic permaculture working farm just 5 minutes drive from Bellingen town and our beautiful Bellinger River. Our vintage and recycled style offers you an eco-friendly and relaxing escape. We hope you enjoy all that our farm has to offer; fresh organic produce and eggs, and our farm animals, 150 chickens, 3 horses and 2 sheep for your children to enjoy. We have been hosting guests for 7 years and have been featured in several interior magazines.
Our vision is simple, and reflects our commitment to providing eco-friendly accommodation to our guests in a way that limits our carbon footprint. The style of all our properties has an emphasis on a relaxed and laid back feel. A place you can really enjoy yourselves and unwind. There is both an indoor slow combustion fireplace and an outdoor bonfire pit as well as an outdoor BBQ.
The farmstay has an open plan living and kitchen space with vaulted ceilings to allow for air and light. It has two bedrooms, the main bedroom has a queen sized bed and there are two single beds in the second bedroom.The bathroom has a bathtub and shower and laundry facilities.
We can sleep an extra 2 children on the lounge room day beds if their happy to sleep in the main space.
You have your own private house on the farm with flat access. You have a fully fenced backyard where your dogs and children can play safely. You are welcome to enjoy our whole farm and explore the property.
Interaction with Guests
We run a busy farm...but we always pop down and say hello (not always as soon as you arrive) and goodbye if we can. Then we leave you to your holiday. We are happy for you to walk up and visit us if we're home and for your children to play with ours. We want you to make yourselves at home and enjoy our farm.
Our house uses rain tank water and we recycle the grey water, so please only use biodegradable soaps and washing powers. We supply guests with complementry laundry wash balls.
We do not offer refunds, we understand that sometimes you may have to cancel your trip due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond your control, or that floods may prevent you from reaching the house. If this should happen we are happy for you to rebook your stay with us at a date that suits you and one that is free for us. If you do want to cancel and are able to give us enough notice, often we can find someone to take your booking and can then refund you your deposit.
We are dog friendly, however all dogs must stay outside at all times. This way we can manage the needs of all our guests. We have a comfortable verandah and enclosed back yard for your dogs to stay cozy and dry. If your dogs are not comfortable around our chickens please put them on a lead when moving around the farm. Please bring your dogs bedding and food bowls. We ask that you ensure your dogs are flea free. We take a bond of $100 on arrival to cover any accidental damage your dog may cause and we return this to you when you leave.
