North Farm, Bellingen, offers a variety of accommodation options to suit singles, couples, families or groups of up to 30 guests.

We offer flexible accommodation options and facilities for larger groups, including a wonderfully light and beautiful, hardwood-floored Hall for meetings and workshops, and large covered outdoor spaces for gathering and dining.

Would you like to have a Hawaiian masseuse, an Ayurvedic chef, a ‘Food as Medicine’ coach or a Shiatsu practitioner on staff at the next retreat you run? There are many wonderful healers and practitioners in the Bellingen Shire who can work with us to make your retreat a real success.

North Farm also operates as a retreat venue. We offer personalised retreat packages for groups of 6-30 guests. Accommodation comprises the rooms describes about, and beautiful bell tents for larger groups. They are roomy and comfortable and can be set up for 1 - 2 people in double beds, or up to 4 in single beds. Our guests tell us that they really enjoy sleeping close to nature in a panoramic, sub-tropical setting, just minutes from the township of Bellingen with its thriving alternative culture.

If you want to bring a group to share the grounding experience of being immersed in nature, for deepening your wellness practice or for simply being in beautiful surroundings, then the Loving Nature Retreat Space at North Farm, in beautiful Bellingen, is the place to come.

We offer several different packages, each of which can be customised and costed to suit your needs.
