About Liz Ryan
I co-host with my daughter, Emily. Emmie has hospitality experience and works in early childhood education. She is an absolute local, loves the Bellingen lifestyle and is keen to share her knowledge of the best places to go and things to do and help provide our visitors with a special experience.
Liz Ryan purchased this Farmhouse in 2017
Why Liz Ryan chose Gleniffer
We were so excited to find Freida, which we bought about a year ago from Helen and Tom. Its like a dream come true. When I was I younger, I worked for many years in hospitality management so part of that dream was sharing the property with others. It is the most delightful place and everyone who comes here loves it. We all love travelling and hope to attract international visitors to our home. We are also keen to develop 'Freida' as a place for families and friends to come together for local weddings, of which there is an abundance, particularly at the Gleniffer Church and Hall. 'Freida' is a perfect setting for groups of people to have time together. And she is just a little bit romantic :) All in good time ..... 'Freida' is a project in motion.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
What we love about Freida seems to be the same thing that everyone loves about this feeling of stepping back in time - and the peace, its hard not to relax.. Our guests describe the benefits of 'Freida' better than we can: April 2018: We absolutely loved our stay at Elizabeth's place. 'Frieda's House' is so beautiful and spacious, a home away from home. Our two young kids loved running around the big veranda and in the beautiful garden and dancing in the lounge room. I especially loved relaxing on the hammocks and in the big old bath next to the open window bringing you close with nature. My husband loved the wifi for connecting to his music, better, faster connection then at home. Elizabeth and Emily were tremendously helpful letting us know what was happenning like the magnificent Belingen market and great water holes nearby, which we loved. And were easily contactable if we needed. Highly recommended:) April 2018: Thanks Liz & Emily, great house, secluded, peaceful & old world charm! All the essentials there and log fires inside and out! Great for a whole bunch of families or for a quiet couple to enjoy! The house is a little way away from Bellingen town (15 - 20mins scenic drive) but only 10 minutes from the Thora Store for fuel, organic food and alcohol. Its about half way between going up to Dorrigo or going into Bellingen town. Perfect spot to explore the Never Never & Glennifer, waterholes and bush walking tracks. January 2018: "It's a beautiful old farmhouse that is peaceful, roomy and has all the amenities you'd want. The hosts are very welcoming and the communication is excellent. We loved it that much we wished we could have stayed longer". January 2018: "Elizabeth's space is a gem and my daughter and I loved our stay in her adorable farmhouse in the Never Never. Beautiful swimming holes and just down the road to fabulous food and treats in Bellingen". December 2018: "Stunning hospitality, amazing views, great garden, hidden gem"

Everything we needed and more
We loved our stay in this beautiful house. Everything seemed to have been thought of and supplied. We would have loved to spend more time there. We would love to visit again.
Dear Ruth, we loved having the opportunity to host you and your family at Freida for the wedding at Gleniffer Hall. Really hope you get the chance to get back here and experience more of the area. Would be a pleasure to have you here again. And thank you so much for leaving the house in such beautiful condition. Sensational!
This house was a dream, like stepping back in time to a place where relaxation reigned supreme and teas on the verandah and wine by the fire punctuated the day. The birdsong and incredible garden and friendly goats and beautiful scenery offered gorgeous escapism. As did the beautiful bath tub!
Dear Jess, we loved hosting you and the McTavish crew and were so pleased that you fitted in some lovely Freida house relaxation in amongst that busy schedule. Please come again, you are a delight!
Beautiful house, amazing surrounds, peace quiet and tranquility.
This is exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful house, lots of accommodation for this group of good friends. Liz and Emily are doing an amazing job of continuing to work on this house to keep it in the period it was built
Dear Rhonda we were delighted to have a lovely group of close friends really enjoy their time together at Freida. I think the property has just experienced its first group of singers. Wonderful. We loved the list of birds that Winsome had sited, here and at the coast (over 50!). And please pass on a big thank you to everyone for leaving the house so immaculate, you'd barely known you'd been there. I hope we get to see you all again. All the best, Liz and Emily xx
Lovely, cosy home filled with warmth!
We loved our stay at Frieda’s. It is delightful, romantic, quiet and really comfortable. My family and our friends felt right at home and the delightful host Emily is a dream. I kept sighing, and looking out at the landscape and saying “this is so pleasant”. It is exactly what we needed to slough of the cares of the world, even just for a short while. We’ll be back!
We loved having you and your family and friends stay with us, Jude and that you had some Freida time alongside the wedding at Gleniffer. Hope we have the pleasure of having you with us again! See you soon :) Emily x
So perfect for our long weekend!!
We arrived at Frieda and instantly fell in love with this charming house in its peaceful location. We were 3 small families together celebrating a 50th birthday and there was plenty of room inside and outside the house. The kids played in the gorgeous garden area and on the trampoline and adults could relax over a drink on the beautiful deck and multiple hammocks. Not far from town meant we could go in for lunch or supplies easily when needed. The owners are so lovely to deal with and made everything smooth sailing from beginning to end. We would definitely book in at Frieda house again!
Michelle, we are so happy that you chose to stay at Freida for your friend's 50th celebration. It was great working with in the time leading up to the trip and during it. I love your description of what you guys did there, its just how we hope it will be, relaxed social time. Thank you for the lovely review and we really hope do you come and stay again. You'd be most welcome! Liz and Emily x
