“Travelled over 10,000 miles to stay in this Farmstay a second time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

First it is Amazing value, A few minutes from Byron Bays stunning coast. Accommodation is everything you need clean and basic. Stunning views from large veranda plenty of room to sit all the family and eat all the meals from here. BBQ available and wood supplied. The family that own the Farmstay will give you all the information you need to get the most out of your holiday, pick their brains. They have an in-depth knowledge of the local area, also their is nothing they don’t know about scuba diving, snorkelling surfing etc.
This time we had several cottages so mass BBQ s ,swimming, canoe kayak on the lake, The owners were pretty OK about us moving tables, glasses cutlery from one cottage to another so plenty of room for 15 people to eat and drink on any of the verandas. Cant think of any drawbacks unless you cant cope with the mooing from the 100 plus herd of cows.
The problem with writing a review is that you feel you owe it to the owner to say thank you for such a great relaxing holiday but you don’t want too many people to find out about it so it is full when you want to book.

Room Tip: there are 4 one bedrom cottages and two two bedroom cottages

We have now had 2 family holidays at this farmstay - we loved it so much that we went back a few months after our first visit and had yet another great week staying at the farm. The holiday cottages are simple but very clean and tidy and the location overlooking the small lake is stunning. Breakfast on the verandah with the birds chirping and the cows mooing was a lovely way to start the day. Although you are only 10 minutes drive from Byron Bay, it feels a world away and is unbelievably peaceful. Our children (2 and 4) loved going out in the little rowing boat on the lake and we also enjoyed some of the bush walks around the property and spotted a platypus and lots of turtles in the creek. The owners are supremely helpful and friendly and it was fun for the children to visit the chickens and the goats. I have recommended this farmstay to anyone thinking of going to Byron Bay as it provides a wonderful contrast to the busy bustle of the town, yet that is right there on the doorstep whenever you want it. Great place - don't change a thing - we loved it and will be back!

My wife and I stayed with our daughter for two nights in november 2011. The cottage was perfectly clean and the owners were very nice. This is the place to go if you want some relaxing days close to nature. A car is required if you want to go to Bangalow or Byron Bay. Our daughter loved to feed the chickens and we enjoyed a sip of wine on the veranda in the evening, overlooking the lake and listen to the birds and cicadas. Combined with the spirit of downtown Byron Bay ten minutes drive away, you got a great holiday cocktail.

We stayed a mere two nights here and wished it could have been longer. It is a wondrous place, cows and calves, and an enchanting pair of goats. The cabin was well appointed, although we found it a bit odd to pay extra to have our beds made up - I mean, do people really travel around Australia with sheets and pillowcases in their bags. If we stay here again, and we plan to, we would bring our own pillows as those provided were oddly solid and uncomfortable. But a beautiful place.

We only stayed for two nights in October 2011 and were sad when we had to leave. This is like every girls dream come true. A farm in peaceful surroundings, cows mooing at dawn, a little bit of rowing on a lake full with water lilies, and the view. Simply perfection and an Anne of Green Gables feeling!

The cabin is basic, clean and spacious.

We had lovely two weeks in July to escape winter from NZ. The cabins were just right for us four, and the kids really liked the farm and surroundings. Byron is really close too, so all activities in/around town are easy to get to. It's also a perfect spot to explore the backcountry.
Would love to come back again,
