We use this place often for family and friends. I used it myself and found the owners were so helpful. You feel like your away from it all but a short drive your in the rainforest our sitting on beautiful beaches. Loved how you could collect your own eggs and pick from the abundant fruit trees.

Look up serenity in the dictionary and there is a picture of this place.
Peaceful and relaxing and feels like your a million miles from anywhere and yet top beaches within an easy drive.
The cottages are simple yet sufficient for a quiet escape, with great verandahs to while away the days.
Beautiful grounds with great views of the distant ocean.
We'll be back

Room Tip: Ask for one of the front ones with distant ocean views

What a wonderful place for a family holiday it offers many things for adults and children alike. the owners could not be more helpful and it 's simply beautiful. Their gardens are obviously a passion and the animals and games are great for kids. Be sure to eat the eggs you get from the henhouse. This would Be a fantastic place for a few families to holiday together you can have some privacy but there are great common areas and it is safe. Sorry to leave!!
Our only idea for improvement would be to have some simple basics in the kitchen like oil and Salt/Pepper for cooking

Nestled in the country just a kilometre out of Alstonville.Beautifull setting looking down the valley to the Ballina coast. Feed the animals or just sit on your balcony and enjoy the view.

We spent 1 week at the Alstonville Cottages as part of an exchange program. The eight cottages are tastefully nestled into the landscape and overlook the rolling valley down to the ocean. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Behind the office is a wonderful pool that is perfect for cooling off on a hot day. There are walking trails down to a picturesque creek, which is cool, clear and fast running.

The cottages are cute, simple and very clean. In addition to the bedrooms and bathrooms, amenities and services include a stove, sink, BBQ, fridge, television,etc, which is great for people like us who want to relax and spend the entire day on site. You can even purchase fresh farm eggs for breakfast.

The property is a farmstay setting, including several animals. As an animal lover, I was thrilled to visit the horse, donkeys, cows, chickens and last but not least, Sam the super friendly family dog.

Proximity to Alstonville was a definite plus for us. Alstonville is a cute little town and a great place to stop for a coffee, have a nice meal or do a little shopping (there is a great little vintage shop called Gingerlily). The cottages are also within 30 minutes of other great tourist towns including Byron Bay, Lennox Head and Ballina.

The owners are very pleasant, friendly and accommodating; they contributed to our great experience.

We would definitely stay at the Alstonville Cottages again should we find ourselves in that part of NSW.

Lots of good things about this place - beautiful setting and surroundings - the owners have made a great job of the whole place (but it is not in the country being 5 mins from the centre of Alstonville and off the main road). The cabins (they are not cottages) all have great views but are, on balance, average, with the main problem being the kitchenette and very limited cooking utensils and space (hence the poor rating for the rooms). There are, however, very good Weber gas bbqs to use on the deck. The owners are very friendly and gave great advice, so in the main good, but some average elements.
