Fairlight Cottage is set in the homestead garden of a 65 acre property, overlooking the Clarence River, the Valley and the Great Dividing Range.

Set halfway between the beaches and the mountains, the cottage is 20 mins from the highway and the city.

You have your own 2 bedroom residence that was built for guests. It is fully stocked and all that is missing is You.

NOTE: New: From June 1st, 2017, there is a minimum 2 night stay.

The Continental breakfast provided is generous because you cannot walk down to a coffee shop...Instead you can stay cosy in the kitchen, or walk over to the Forster Room and relax in a spacious outdoor lounge and dining area.

The mature garden is host to may different birds and native animals. To protect these, the property is not pet friendly.

Your hosts believe in genuine old -fashioned country hospitality and the guests appreciate it, like Kathy from WA-

"Pamela was so welcoming and generous we felt instantly at home when arriving at Fairlight. We booked in at very short notice but we were accommodated with no trouble and the place was spotless when we got there.

The cottage is lovely and the property so quiet and peaceful with beautiful views down to the river.

We would definitely stay here again."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting! Fairlight Cottage was a little delight in a beautiful setting overlooking a gorgeous river. Pamela, our host was attentive and keeps this cottage in perfect condition. There is a large undercover area overlooking the beautiful river where you can sit and enjoy a drink in the afternoon and the cottage has everything you could possibly need with full cooking and laundry facilities. Furthermore, the continental breakfast provided was plentiful. A lovely place to spend a long weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay! Our two nights at Fairlight Cottage were marvellous; the cottage itself was charming, with a well-appointed kitchen that allowed us to cook and make ourselves thoroughly at home. The setting was beautiful, from the surrounding fields and trees, to the river at the bottom of the property, all of which we enjoyed while strolling around and from the summer house overlooking the river. The place was full of fascinating birds and plants, even in what was the Australian winter. Our host Pamela made us feel immediately at home -- you couldn't ask for a more friendly or welcoming host. She was also a terrific font of information, and provided really spot-on suggestions that resulted in a very enjoyable day outing to a neighbouring town with an excellent bookshop and river-side pub. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a charming escape to the Australian countryside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dreamy place like in novels Fairlight cottage is like a place often described in novels... tucked away in the country, sitting on the top of a hill with beautiful uninterrupted views of distant mountains on one side and a calm blue river running in the valley. During the day the calm is occasionally disturbed by bird songs or by cattle mooing in the distance, and in the night by the "tchop tchap" sounds made by the frogs in Pamela's frog pond. There is a big, covered and netted shelter from within which one can take in these scenic views without being bothered by mossies and bugs. The rustic cottage itself is very neatly presented with some great antique furniture, and is clean, cozy and warm. Although it has all of the appliances needed to prepare a quick meal, we had picked up some take-away closest town of Grafton. The fridge was laden with breakfast foods and basket with a few fruits, all of which was more than enough for 3 of us. Pamela the owner is also a nice and warm lady, with a lot of experience and information to share. While just a tad on the pricier side, it’s still worth driving all the way here for what it has to offer. If I get a chance, I would certainly come back here for a couple of nights to get away from the hustle-bustle of our daily routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Host was exceptional This property was exceptional and I would encourage anyone who is looking for a retreat away to come here. The only downfall was how the property retained heat. The tin roof, no insulation and air con made it super hot in summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best place to stay in Grafton! We really enjoyed our stay at Fairlight Cottage. Pamela's hospitality and service with a smile just made the stay even more welcoming. The cottage is a sweet cottage with so much history and Pamela's knowledge of the area made it so much more interesting. Pamela's property is so beautiful with so much wildlife!! We truly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit you again.
