We usually stay in Lennox Head when we come to Byron as we like to stay far from the crowd and it's a good compromise when you have very young kids.
2 weeks ago, we opted for the countryside experience at Ange and Ian's cottages: "oh la la la" what a great place just 5min driving from Byron!
We had a 2 bedroom cottage and could easily fit 4 adults, a 3yo and a bub.
It's simple and basic, but very comfy and to be honest you don't need more. I would only suggest that a hammock on the deck would be an awesome add to enjoy the peaceful view on the lake before an afternoon nap.... For those who are more adventurous, there's plenty to do at the farmstay itself: kayaking or fishing on the lake, walks, taking the kids to grab some fresh eggs or feed the horses.... There's a nice map provided in your cottage to spot a platypus, get the best view ever over the bay while you're sharing some drinks at the top of the hill and on your way back you can stop to pick up some fresh herbs and fruits for diner!
It's the kind of place that you want to keep secret but you also feel like you have to share it because there's this family doing its best to welcome you.
Thank you again and MERCI BEAUCOUP dear Angela!!!!
We'll come back for sure and spread the word from Brisbane to Paris.
