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

Situated in the lush green Promised Land locality 10-15 minutes scenic drive from Bellingen are the Promised Land Cottages. We were warmly greeted on arrival. What a beautiful location! How lovely it was just to be able to sit out on the expansive verandah, sip tea and take in the picturesque, green surroundings of mountains, forests, paddocks and the donkey... More

We stayed for two nights in one of the cottages during our month long vacation in Australia last August. The cottage was one of the best of our accommodations. The setting is beautiful, with views over a meadow in a valley. The cottage is well built, with great atmosphere (all exposed wood, minimalist but not cold) and quality furnishings. The... More

The very well designed and appointed cottages are set in a stunning landscape. The owners have thought of everything including bicycles in great condition, a good selection of DVDs, games, a spa in the bathroom, tennis and well maintained walking tracks - and are happy to provide tips on other activities in the vicinity. Suitable for families, couples or a... More

The cottages are situated within a lush, very peaceful countryside, with horses,donkeys and rabbits around the land. The living room is bright, airy and very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with equipment but remember to take your own food . The beds are very comfortable with crisp white 5 star sheets.Guests are free to use the 'games room',... More

We staid for three nights over New Year. The cottage was very well appointed with attention to quality and cleanliness. The tranquil setting and privacy of the location made it feel very special. My daughters loved wandering off exploring the property. Bellingen is only 10 minutes drive away and offers a great variety of shops and quality produce. The ice... More

An absolutely beautiful, tranquil retreat - perfect for a romantic weekend or family holiday. The cottages are simply delightful - open planned with windows opening to the outdoors, bringing the outdoors indoors! The setting at the base of the Dorrigo national park is sublime. You can do as little or as much as you want to. The hosts Greg and... More

Although they advertise a minimum 2 nights, we were able to stay just the one. We had the one bedroom cottage. Modern, clean and well equipped with electric BBQ, oils, flour, sugar, glad wrap, alfoil and the rest of the usual kitchen equipment. The surround sound was a nice addition. Great place to stay with tranquil surrounds.
