When we designed our cottages we wanted to create a feeling of comfort and luxury while highlighting the beauty of the natural setting. Our outdoor baths offer a uniquely memorable experience, especially under the stars. We wanted to create an experience that our guests may not be able to experience at home, luxuriating in the spa while being surrounded by nature. Our double showers with huge glass wall also bring the outside in, with the wonderful feeling of looking at the gardens and wildlife while having a shower. It was also important to us to be classically modern in our design, with quality furnishings and personal touches to make the cottage feel like a home away from home.
For us this is about making our guests feel welcome, we choose to greet all our guests and make sure that they are comfortable with using the amenities to their full advantage. We offer our guests a complimentary bottle of wine and an antipasto platter on arrival, so that after a long drive they have the opportunity to just relax and unwind on the private deck. We also leave a full breakfast that guests can cook for themselves in their fully stocked kitchen. I personally like to make sure that our guests are aware of all the highlights of our beautiful town of Bellingen so they can achieve the most out of their stay here with us.
Bellingen is a truly picture perfect town, with just the right mix of people living here to give it a very cosmopolitan feel. The town is well known for its great cafes and restaurants and famous for the quality of of its coffee. Community markets, artists and musicians contribute to the village atmosphere, and the locals are welcoming and always ready for a chat. Bellingen lies in a beautiful river valley nestled between the mountains and the sea. Only a half hour away, the World Heritage rainforests and waterfalls of Dorrigo National Park are simply spectacular, and the drive along Waterfall Way across the plateau is one of the top five tourist drives in Australia. And only twenty minutes to the east are the wide unspoilt beaches of the Coffs Coast.
