I stayed for two lovely peaceful nights with my two small dogs. Location is spot-on, close to town and beautiful. Best of, it's pretty much on the river. Cottage Two is very private and surrounded by gorgeous trees teeming with birds. Loved it. Bed is very good quality and comfortable, as is everything else about this cottage. The heating is... More

This property is well located on the Bellingen river about 5 minutes drive out of the town. We stayed in the Diary and had booked for the Easter long weekend (3 nights) however ended up only staying 2. We left early and found accommodation elsewhere for the last night. " It was dirty, damp and smelly and cobweb infested" -... More

Stayed 2 nights in Cottage 1 as part of Brisbane-Sydney road trip. Our Wonderfully friendly host, Marg, made our short stay very comfortable. Trip coincided with Bellingen community market held every 3rd Saturday of the month. Recommend the Scones at the Old Butter Factory cafe, Dinner at Oak Street Food & Wine restaurant, Kayak on the river.

We stayed for my brothers wedding so rented the newest cabin, which was luxurious, and also the dairy, which was quaint, clean, rustic and very affordable. Marg and John were great hosts and very friendly. If you wake up early morning you can get out on the kayaks and see many fishes in the river. Peaceful serenity, we could hear... More

This property is now called "Bellingen Riverside Cottages." We recently stay here with a groups of friends and hired the dairy building and cottage 3. Cottage 3 was awesome but the dairy building was disgusting. It was dirty, smelly and cobweb infested. The towels and bathmats were old and frayed. The interior is poorly finished with visible areas of rotten... More

These cottages are now called Bellingen Riverside Cottages, which reflects the location perfectly. We stayed here for just 2 nights but were blown away by the peaceful nature of the place and the superb hospitality shown by the owners.Situated about 2 miles out of Bellingen on a beautiful stretch of river, there are 2 kayaks and a canoe available at...

Recently stayed at Maddefords Cottages at Bellingen with my sons. We only had one night but it was so magical. Such a beautiful setting, gorgeous cabins that have all the special touches of a home away from home. Right on the Bellingen river with free canoes, we had such a relaxing time. This was my second visit and hopefully can... More

We spent 4 nights at Maddefords and it was hard to leave. Such a tranquil setting where you can really relax and escape. The cabins were very cute and comfortable with an amazing verandah and views over the river. The staff were so friendly and welcoming going that extra little mile by giving us some home grown lemons from their... More

We recently had a wonderful weekend staying at Maddefords Cottages. Our cottage was very comfortable without being luxurious, reasonably priced and had a lovely view of the river and the cows grazing peacefully on the other side and we loved to sit on the balcony watching the mist rise in the early morning and the gorgeous sunsets in the evening...
