About the property

We are located in the beautiful Promised Land valley, just 10 min drive, (10km) north of Bellingen town.

Two king single beds, (maximum 2 guests)

Kitchenette with kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave

Breakfast provisions to enjoy at your leisure

Large screen television

Under cover parking

We are also "small dog friendly" (up to 12 kgs), with our 2 acre home paddock fenced.

About bringing your dog.

We know how much you love your dog, and it is very welcome to stay with you in the studio. However, we ask you to bring it's own bedding and respect our accommodation by keeping it off the couch and beds. Please remember we are a B&B, not a kennel so we expect your dog not to be left unattended.

Please talk to us about your dog before booking.

We live on the property and are here if you need us, but will ensure that your stay is peaceful and relaxed. You will never want to leave our beautiful valley.

As for Bellingen, expect a small country town with a focus on creativity and performing arts.The town is extremely friendly and has a great casual cafe "buzz" about it.

We so loved our time at this idyllic B & B. Susie and Al were such lovely hosts. They were there to greet us with one of Susie's amazing Sourdough Bread loaves, and made us feel as though we were at home on our own property. The setting is stunning with the most glorious views across the manicured lawns and gardens. The picturesque Never Never Creek is just across the road and is dotted with picture perfect swimming holes. Our dog was at home within moments and loved the freedom of the fully fenced 3 acres...she also made a firm friend in Dean, the host doggie. Bellingen and it's lovely eateries is only a 10 minute drive away, but we felt we never really wanted to leave the property. The accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. We loved the cosey beds and snugly doonas. As we were there for several days, we were also treated to Susie's almond and walnut loaf...another winner. Thank you Susie and Al...we will be back!!!

Stunningly peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay from the moment we drove around the tree lined edge of the property, wisteria flowering along the fenceline, into the driveway. The backdrop of the mountains wrapping around this property make it feel you are indeed in the Promised Lands. Susie and Al gave us a warm welcome and showed us the accommodation which is of 5 star quality - the layout, the interior design, the very comfortable beds, the kitchenette... were all very pleasing and relaxing. Add to this the delicious breakfast, the tasty home baked bread and fresh orange juice in the morning - we felt very blessed. The grounds are immaculately kept and a treat to walk around, we watched the sun set over the hills from the deck and then the moon set from our dining table. Waking up to the peacefulness of the bush and heading out for a morning walk in the mist followed by a walk to the Never Never Creek later on for a swim made this stay perfect. We only came from Emerald Beach for the wonderful Bellingen Fine Music Festival however we felt we had travelled to a remote luxury holiday destination. Highly recommended.

Peaceful haven - Perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

A truly special place created by owners Al & Susie....from the moment we opened the gate & drove onto this beautiful property we felt enveloped by warmth and were in awe of the amazing vistas in every direction....from the backdrop of the iconic Old Man Dreaming to the stunning gardens created by the owners. The studio itself was immaculate and wonderfully presented....fresh and inviting with so many beautiful details.....gorgeous decor, views from every window, many thoughtful extras including fresh fruit & flowers, yummy produce including Susie's amazing sourdough and freshly squeezed orange juice each morning from their abundant orchard. The perfect getaway.....close enough to enjoy all that Bellingen & surrounds have to offer but just far enough to enjoy peace & quiet surrounded by nature...a short stroll to the pristine Never Never Creek, a myriad of stars at night, comfortable beds with beautiful linens, and wonderful hosts that provided a true haven with total respect for guest privacy. Our spoodle was warmly welcomed & enjoyed it all looking forward to a return stay.

beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at the B&B, it was perfect for my friend and me, as we slept in separate king single beds.

Al and Susie gave us a warm welcome, but gave us privacy for the rest of the stay.

Susie had made fresh bread on arrival for us.

THe only thing that was noted, was there was no front door to the cabin, just a fly screen. Which means in winter the little hallway in between bedroom/ bathroom and living area will get cold at night.

A Dream Country Studio!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this beautiful studio and feel so grateful to have discovered such a wonderful place to stay! We felt like we were staying with old friends even though it was the first time we had met Al and Susie. They were such kind and gracious hosts and went beyond to make everything perfect for a peaceful and very enjoyable stay. They have created a dream country home - beautiful lush private gardens, spacious lawns with views to the mountains and delightful orchards abundant with birds, fruits and flowers. The studio (which is separate to their home) is private, peaceful and cozy and is beautifully appointed. On arrival Susie provided lovely homemade sourdough and delicious muesli and tea. We enjoyed sitting under a tree just outside the studio listening to the sounds of the birds and marvelling at the garden and mountain views. Al even lit a bonfire for us to enjoy on their property as the sun was setting. The beds and linen were super comfortable and we really didn't want to leave. We look forward to coming back again and would highly recommend this devine studio on the sacred Promised Land!
