A great place to get away from the grind of city life. Excellent accommodation , stunning views, beautiful Belligen, the most genial of hosts. What's not to like? Really enjoyed the generous music, movie and book libraries in the cottages. Geoff and Aggie are so welcoming and helpful. We can't wait to return. Five stars for sure.

After a long drive from Sydney we were welcomed by a smiling Agnes and a chilled bottle of bubbly. After an informative tour of the Dairy cottage my husband and I relaxed with bubbles and snacks as we watched roos nibble in the garden before it went dark. Dinner in Bellingen then back to the outdoor heated spa bath built...

Absolutely amazing! Quiet, relaxing and everyone is so friendly in Bellingen. Watching the sunset and the stars from the spa bath on the deck was magical. Agnes and Geoff have a beautiful property and have created the perfect place for a wonderful getaway. Will definitely recommend to family and friends!

We stayed in the Dairy Cottage for 2 nights. Two nights & 3 days of blissful quiet, peaceful country relaxation. We stayed for a couples weekend away and also to go to the Bellingen Markets. Aggie was a lovely lady who made you feel so welcome from the time you arrive. The cottage has everything you need. Everything everyone else...

Well this was a great find for a 3 night in Bellingen. From booking to departure Agnes was the best host. Never intruding but always available to answer questions and provide advice about the area and attractions. We stayed in the Dairy which is a lovely retreat for two people. Full cooking facilities if you need it and good quality...

We stayed for four nights in the Main Cottage - an absolutely wonderful location and beautiful, modern house thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed, including dips and wine as a greeting from the lovely Agnes - and good WiFi. The interior design with paintings and photographs on the walls, ceramics and decorative glassware adds to the luxury. The glass-walled shower...

My wife and I spent one night at the dairy cottage on a NSW road trip. Agnes was most welcoming and prior to our arrival was very helpful with information and ideas for seeing the Waterfall Way. Our cottage was very well appointed, with all necessary items for a self contained experience, but as we were staying only one night...

The dairy cottage is a beautiful small house with a large verandah. Scenery is beautiful and rural. Wildlife abounds, like wallabies on the lawn in the morning. We preferred to rest in the house and loved the outdoor bath and the amazing bathroom. Bed was delightfully comfortable as well. Thank you Agnes.

My partner and I are already planning our next escape to Afterglow....It was stunning. Agnes went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. My fiance says "it was the BEST shower he has ever been in!".

“The Dairy is located at the end of the driveway and therefore the most isolated.”
