Valleydale Cottage is the ideal romantic relaxing holiday destination for two. You'll have complete privacy with the cottage and 90 acres to yourself and your partner. You are close enough to enjoy the colour and diversity of the Byron Bay region.
Rosebank Farm (on which Valleydale is situated) was established as a dairy property in 1895. Since then the farm has had dairy, commercial orcharding, beef cattle and tourism as farming activities. Valleydale cottage was completed in 2003 as a tourism venture. The goal was to build a unique place to celebrate special events for couples, to simply take time out from busy lives and to reconnect with nature and partners.
The cottage has been built in a farmhouse style with recycled wood. A verandah wraps around the cottage on all 4 sides giving access to fabulous valley and farmland views. Small children accompanying parents will need to be supervised at all times given the nature of farms - livestock, unfenced dams, creeks and fishponds, electric fences and abundant wildlife.
Your cottage is located in a rural farming community with Federal village store only a short 9 minute drive away. Many local farmers sell organic produce direct from the farm gate.
Minyon Falls is a short 15 minute drive from the cottage - after rain the Falls are spectacular. You can enter either from the Falls bottom (for fit people) or the top for a short stroll.
Rosebank Farm is operated by Loretta Hofer and Martin Bowerman and family. Guests are free to wander over to the main homestead for a chat, feed the horses or have your own private space. The choice is yours.
