If you're looking for a place to sooth you, completely away from the rat race - this is it!
I have stayed there twice - in summer and winter. Both times were remarkably calming just being there.
Set up for two, with the most comfortable of beds, solar and wind powered, tank and stream watered, overlooking your own stream and the Dorrigo State rainforest, by day and night it's the perfect, private retreat.
More than ample food is provided for breakfast - and you can arrange a gourmet dinner either for the cottage or dine with the owners - Peta and Evan at the "big house".
Its the little touches, like the binoculars and bird watching book, the chocolate by the bedside and the friendly but unintrusive welcome that make the cottage so very special.
Soaking in a guilt free bath or bar-b-queing a steak under the stars, watching the sunrise over the forest or listening to the frogs at night - this is a little piece of heaven I will definitely visit again.
Even though its closer to Dorrigo I found it easier to get to from Coff's Harbour.
