Fernridge Farm Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,291 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

This is a beautiful, well appointed fully self contained cottage located on a Bellingen 120 acre hobby farm. It has two bedrooms, sleeping 6 people.

Verandas wrap around the cottage, and are sun-drenched throughout the day in winter, shaded in summer, with the front veranda recently doubled in size and covered. Expansive and spectacular mountain and valley views will keep you on the veranda for hours at a time.

The living room has a fireplace, ceiling fans and air conditioning. There is a flat screen digital TV and DVD player, as well as a CD player. The kitchen has a full sized stove and fridge, microwave and there is a gas BBQ on the veranda. You will only need to bring food (breakfast provisions for the first morning are provided) and personal effects. Both the kitchen and bathroom were renewed recently, and a fully equipped laundry added.

It's a perfect place for childen - half a kilometre away from the road, not near any water source, well away from neighbours and surrounded by a large flat lawn - a perfect playground for active children (and adults). Children love playing with Ralph, our friendly farm dog, who visits daily.

Most dogs, or indeed any pets, are welcome but please confirm first.

The cottage is only a five minute drive from Bellingen, and is well off the road on top of a hill. The cottage offers peace, privacy and an opportunity to get away from it all. But not so far away that you can't access the cafes, restaurants and shops of Bellingen when you want to.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so lovely, sitting high looking over the beautiful hills, in absolute peaceful seclusion. There is an interesting history behind the property and the renovation has been thoughtfully done to retain the original charm but make it incredibly comfortable. The host was wonderfully accommodating and went out of her way to help us with last minute requests. How I'd love to wake up and have breakfast on that verandah every day! The perfect place to rest.

Great country retreat

  • 5 of 5

Having lucked onto Fernridge we were so pleasantly surprised by every aspect of our stay with all the lovely personal touches and absolutely beautiful location. Our very energetic border collie made the most of the expansive grounds plus a new friendship with the resident German Pointer Ralph. Our stay in what is a wonderfully warm and cosy cottage in a great spot could not have been better. We are looking forward to returning on a regular basis as is Bella. Greg and Carolyn

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellant place to stay and just a short trip into Bellingen. Our 2 Corgi's throughly enjoyed their stay and loved catching up with Ralph in the morning. Very cosy, well appointed and maintained. Looking forward to another visit. Thanks Judy.

Beautiful views

  • 3 of 5

A very beautiful spot looking up at the mountains and across the valley however the second couch was most uncomfortable, making relaxing by the fire difficult for two of us at once, one of the main purposes of our stay.

Bathroom and kitchen a bit dated considering the the price of the accommodation, though the deck was a lovely spot to sit when weather allowed.

Good to have a full oven and full size fridge and fire.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you found your stay uncomfortable; The bathroom and kitchen were renoved in the past five years, and I tried to maintain the integrity of the 115 year old cottage. I had hoped that a 75 sq metre covered deck would be usable whatever the weather and most people seem to find it so.
