We revisited Bellbird Cottage for a special birthday - and it was as wonderful this time around! We were welcomed with strawberries and chocolate - the room was luxurious, and the birds in the forest added to the beauty of the cottage. Gretel and Tony do an absolutely fantastic job of making you feel welcome, and look after you almost... More

Special birthdays are always worth a little extra spoiling and you gave us the perfect excuse. :) Strawberries and dipping chocolate has to be up there as one of our favourite treats so we had to try it on you too ;) It is so lovely to have such beautiful guests return time after time and we always look forward...

We would highly recommend this lovely B&B, it exceeded our expectations. Beautifully appointed room and ensuite, lovely hosts and fabulous setting. Perfect for an overnight quick getaway or an extended romantic holiday for two. Loved it and will definitely be going again.

The charming cottage is set in lovely woodland with the sound of the bellbirds all around. The room is huge and very comfortable - and the breakfasts (served on a tray in the room) are simply wonderful. It was a very special stay, made even more special by our lovely hosts. It was my birthday while we were there and... More

This has got to be one of the best BnBs in Aus ! Gretel and Tony have done an amazing job creating a unique and very beautiful experience. On top of that ... they worked closely with me to create a very beautiful long weekend away for our 30th wedding anniversary. Gretel's breakfasts have to be seen (and eaten!) to... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Bellbird Cottage in November, 2013. Gretel and Tony are the perfect hosts. The bird life around the cottage is simply amazing and a must for birders.... having never encountered bellbirds previously we found their call to be striking and such a complement to the terrain around the beautiful garden. Gretel's breakfast spread is... More

We were fortunate to spend a few nights in this wonderful B and B, just outside Bermagui Town centre, in March 2013.

I cannot recommend Bellbird enough. As it was my first time staying in a B&B I was a little hesitant at first, however my fears could not have been more unfounded!
