We recently stayed in the dairy and it was amazing. It was warm and homely. Marg & John were amazing hosts. The kids enjoyed the canoeing and i have never seen them so content. We would highly recommend these cottages for any length of stay.

Bellingen is a picturesque town on the North Coast of NSW. I'm biased because this is where I grew up however, having said that, this is the first time I've stayed in Bellingen in something other than the family home and it was a good choice. We booked Cottage 1 for 4 nights it was certainly a good choice. The... More

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

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...
