Afterglow Cottages
Reviewed 1 October 2011

This was our first stay at Afterglow Cottages, and we weren't disappointed. Our hosts, Agnes & Geoff Low, couldn't have been more thoughtful and helpful, and the "welcome package" of a bottle of wine of our choice (red, white or champagne), a platter of tapas and all the provisions for our first morning's breakfast, were a delightful treat. Also, during the course of our 10 day stay, we were spoiled with two freshly baked cakes, which were delicious. We stayed in the smaller Dairy Cottage, and this was comfortably fitted out with quality furniture, bed and bathroom linen, and kitchen appliances/utensils were of a high standard.

The view was very relaxing and the location was incredibly quiet and peaceful, and we saw plenty of local birdlife. The back deck was equipped with good quality table/chairs, two reclining lounges and a BBQ. The cottages are located only a short drive of 4km from Bellingen, and it was never a hassle to pop into town to stock up on provisions.

We also checked out the larger cottage, and this was of the same high standards, with a stunning view from the back deck over a bush area.

We will certainly be recommending Afterglow Cottages to others, and look forward to returning for another holiday. Thanks Agnes & Geoff.

Afterglow Cottages have to be visited to experience the superb facilities on offer. My husband and I stayed there for a week in December 2010 while doing an extended holiday in Australia. The cottages are equipped to the highest standard, and your every wish is no problem to the owners Agnes and Geoff Low, they go out of their way to make your visit memorable. Afterglow Cottages are set in the beautiful area of Bellingen N.S.W. Australia, and are ideal for anybody wanting to get away from city life, and just chill out, or as we did, to break our journey and take in the surroundings Bellingen had to offer.
There are beautiful areas for those who enjoy walking to see the flora and fauna of the area.Dorrigo National Park is on your doorstep and well worth a visit.
You will not be disappointed with AFTERGLOW COTTAGES.

Room Tip: There are Two cottages, both are equal in first class facilities.
