Wanted somewhere peaceful to just recharge and Promised Land fit the bill perfectly. Wasn't quite sure what to expect with the drive in as the weather was a bit grim and the roads not the most inviting but once you pop out of the woods and into the drive way you just know it will be great. A friendly welcome...

I cannot fault this gorgeous place. The attention to detail was second to none. The cabins were perfectly clean, the bathroom lovely, kitchen facilities great, the beds comfortable and the bathrobe and slippers were appreciated for the morning cup of tea on the deck. The loungeroom and deck area were just breathtaking. Thats where we spent most of our time....

We loved this place. Great place to totally get away and unwind. It is a bit remote and bit of a drive from town at night but it's worth it. The grounds are nice, the cabin we had is very private, one doesn't have anyone looking onto it so the place is very private. The cabin is very luxurious and...

The drive from Bellingen town centre to Promised Land Retreat is a beautiful one. But when you arrive at the property, the views are stunning. We met Greg at the Check In cabin & he was so friendly & accommodating. He took us through a quick run down of things to do around the property including the games room complete...

We stayed here for the weekend while visiting friends in Bellingen. Promised Land Retreat is about 15 mins drive from Bellingen. Staff were friendly and cabins were nice.

Hi Andrew, thank you for the review, we are glad you have enjoyed your stay, and are looking forward to see you here next time.

I had seen the pictures of Promised Land on their website, and wondered if it would really look that good. And it did! One of the most beautiful and relaxing places we have ever stayed anywhere. It is a little bit of a drive out of Bellingen, but absolutely worth it. The view from the deck over the mountain range...

A very lovely 3 night stay last year with my family. Those mountain views are just spectacular. The cottage itself was very nice and fully equipped and lovely touches by the owners. The grounds are lovely to wander around and we enjoyed a game of tennis as well. The donkeys provided great entertainment, watching them chase each other around the...

Thank you for your positive review, I am glad your family had a lovely stay. All the Queen size beds are fitted with electric blankets. It is true that the bunk beds are not fitted with electric blankets, this is due to practical and safety reasons, flannelette sheets might be the answer.
