We have been hosting guests for 7 years and have been featured in several interior magazines.

You have your own private house on the farm with flat access. You have a fully fenced backyard where your dogs and children can play safely. You are welcome to enjoy our whole farm and explore the property.
Interaction with Guests
We run a busy we always pop down and say hello (not always as soon as you arrive) and goodbye if we can. Then we leave you to your holiday. We are happy for you to walk up and visit us if we're home and for your children to play with ours. We want you to make yourselves at home and enjoy our farm.
Our house uses rain tank water and we recycle the grey water, so please only use biodegradable soaps and washing powers. We supply guests with complementry laundry wash balls.
We do not offer refunds, we understand that sometimes you may have to cancel your trip due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond your control, or that floods may prevent you from reaching the house. If this should happen we are happy for you to rebook your stay with us at a date that suits you and one that is free for us. If you do want to cancel and are able to give us enough notice, often we can find someone to take your booking and can then refund you your deposit.
We are dog friendly, however all dogs must stay outside at all times. This way we can manage the needs of all our guests. We have a comfortable verandah and enclosed back yard for your dogs to stay cozy and dry. If your dogs are not comfortable around our chickens please put them on a lead when moving around the farm. Please bring your dogs bedding and food bowls. We ask that you ensure your dogs are flea free.

Many thanks for your kind review...hope to see you again some time. cheers susan
Nice stay - a bit of fun and something different
A nice enough stay, vintage is comfortable enough, our boys loved the chickens and horses, just have to watch the additional pricing with private school holidays being considered school holidays for higher prices, even if emailed otherwise by the owner. Apart from that, a bit of fun and something different.
This cottage is really lovely. It is comfortable, welcoming, well-appointed and relaxing. True to its description, the design and furnishings are vintage style, but the presence of original art work on the walls gives it a real air of sophistication.
Close to Bellingen, but still in the countryside - perfect.
We had a really happy time. Thank you.
An absolute gem, stylish and very authentic
A wonderful property, location and ethos. The home is delightfully styled, but not at all pretentious with authentic, vintage furniture neatly, but not overly restored. The property has an uncanny ability to make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door. All credit to Emma and Susan for creating this wonderful little gem!!!!
We had a great stay here on our way back from Sydney. A great escape from the city on our way home
We had a great stay here on our way back from Sydney. A great escape from the city on our way home to Brisbane. It is a simple, vintage-styled house that we all enjoyed. It is getting back to basics. It is not fancy but was just what we expected and you could feel the warmth of the house! We visited the farm and fed the animals - the kids loved every minute of it! The shower was a little temperamental, there is no dishwasher (excellent) and the kitchen needs a few more cooking items eg. casserole dish for oven, it is probably in need of a little tlc but other than that we loved it. Relaxation plus! We didn't want to leave!
