My Husband and I stayed here for our Wedding Anniversary. The cabins were beautiful. We loved sitting out on the deck and taking in the scenery and the wildlife. One morning the Donkeys cheekily escaped from their paddock and we awoke to them staring at us through the bed room window. Great times!

After spending three days at the couples chalet we left totally rejuvenated and refreshed and that included the 12klm bike ride and we're 60 plus. The layout of our chalet was impressive from all the timber utilised in its construction to the bespoke furniture. The weather cleared up for our three days allowing us to eat outside of a morning...

This place had been recommended for us by friends who had recently stayed and we didn't regret the decision. Set in the beautiful Promised Land not far from Bellingen, the cottage is perched amongst green paddocks with a picturesque mountain range framing the view. The first thing we noticed was the quality of the build: no expense has been spared... More

We spent a wonderful 2 nights here recently on our way back home after a long road trip. The arrival to the promised land is just what the website shows you, the setting is stunning and we never got tired of sitting on the deck looking at the view. Our two young children loved their time there and still talk... More

If you're looking for a place of pure comfort while being ensconced in natural beauty and tranquility you certainly could not pass up Promised Land Retreat. The cottage was certainly well-appointed and offered beautiful views into the surrounding forest and mountains. The kind of view where you happily prefer to watch the clouds float past rather than the TV. So... More

We (family of 4 with 2 young teenage boys) visited in late September 2014. What a wonderful place to be ... I still have that vista in the forefront of my mind. The photos can only do so much justice. The accommodation itself was ideal... private, high quality and fit for the purpose. I have very fond memories of evenings... More

It's the perfect place to do nothing but take in the environment, stillness, quiet, nothing but birdsong, greenery, sunshine and at night, plenty of stars. There are lovely places to walk and swim but it was enough just to be there. The accommodation itself has been beautifully built, not what you would expect for holiday accommodation, it also has all... More

Quality accommodation located in an area with stunning scenery. If you want to hide, ride a bike or walk and explore, Promised land has something to offer you. All the chalets are far enough apart to maintain privacy. Highly recommend a stay here.

It's not like that place out of Adelaide called Paradise. The cottages are in an area known as The Promised Land - probably because, well, it is. Just stock up. It's not far from Bellingen but it's just too much bother to be anywhere else. So get your book, bread, wine, cheese and fruit and call it quits. Sit on... More

Unfortunately we (2 adults and 2 kidds) stayed there for 2 nights. Unfortunately only 2 nights. We had a great time. The bungalows are great value. Wonderful view, well maintained and very friendly owners. Close to the place we had a lot of fun swimming in the never never creek and Belingen is a lovely little city with great cafes.... More
