About the property

North Farm Retreat Centre, Bellingen, offers a variety of accommodation options to suit singles, couples, families or large groups. We cater for Farmstays, and operate as a Retreat venue for groups of 6 - 30 guests, with a particular interest in the healing arts.

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 meeting and dining.

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


‘The Studio’ has a beautifully comfortable, king-sized bed which can be converted to twin king singles, as well as a sofa bed. It has stunning views and is surrounded by gardens. It is also delightfully cool in summer. Minimum stay 3 nights.

‘The Grevillia Room’ contains a queen-sized bed, and looks out onto the grevillea garden. This wonderfully private and aesthetically fresh, simple room shares a bathroom with the Studio, and is available when the 2 rooms are booked together. Minimum stay 3 nights.

‘The Barn House’ is a comfortable, self-contained building with two double bedrooms. There is a queen-sized bed in one room, and twin king singles in the other. It also has an outdoor kitchenette, a lounge/dining room and a large, wheelchair-accessible bathroom. There is a plenty of room undercover where guests can sit and relax, and enjoy meals. It is near the saltwater pool which is great for cooling off in the summer, and is lovely and cosy in the winter with a log fire under the stars at night. Minimum stay 3 nights.

All guests are given breakfast provisions for the first night of their stay at North Farm.
