Are you looking for a tranquil spot to enjoy a short break from everyday life? Then look no further! This is the perfect place for a couple or a single traveller, situated in the heart of Byron's glorious hinterland. Alfie's is a delightful one bedroom cottage set in a pretty spot down a leafy lane in Coorabell. Set on a 10 acre property well away from the main house, it is peaceful and private and enjoys a lovely view over the garden to the tree-studded valley beyond. Coorabell is a wonderfully convenient location for your hinterland break. All that this special area has to offer is within a short drive....the delightful village of Bangalow; Byron Bay with its fabulous beaches, shops & restaurants; Mullumbimby with its rural-town feel and growing number of fantastic eateries and eclecti...Are you looking for a tranquil spot to enjoy a short break from everyday life?

Alfie's is a delightful one bedroom cottage set in a pretty spot down a leafy lane in Coorabell. Set on a 10 acre property well away from the main house, it is peaceful and private and enjoys a lovely view over the garden to the tree-studded valley beyond. Coorabell is a wonderfully convenient location for your hinterland break. All that this special area has to offer is within a short drive....the delightful village of Bangalow; Byron Bay with its fabulous beaches, shops & restaurants; Mullumbimby with its rural-town feel and growing number of fantastic eateries and eclectic shops; great country cafes in idyllic locations; farmers' markets; antique shops and galleries...the list goes on! Sleep in comfort in your king-size bed and wake up to the sound of the birds. Enjoy a glass of wine watching a beautiful sunset from your private deck. Spend lazy days meandering through winding country lanes taking in breathtaking views and stopping for coffee or lunch at a hidden-away cafe. Snuggle up on the big red comfy sofa and enjoy listening to music or watching a DVD...or simply gazing out at the view. There is a wonderful range of dining options within a 10 minute drive, or if you prefer to stock up on great produce from one of the local farmers' markets and eat-in, Alfie's is equipped with a small kitchenette and a BBQ. There will be a welcoming fruit and goodies bowl to greet you, and some pantry essentials are provided. Your well-behaved small canine companion is welcome! (Conditions apply). FROM THE GUESTBOOK: 'Thanks for a beautiful and very hospitable stay. Loved Alfie's - the serenity, comfort and welcome.' 'Wonderful peaceful stay in such comfort. Great to explore such a beautiful area. Thank you.' 'What a wonderful hideaway. The cottage was delightful, the attention to detail and the welcoming supplies made it absolutely charming. Our hosts could not have done more to make us feel at home. We will be back now that we have found you. Thank you so much for a fabulous stay.' 'This is a gorgeous place to stay. It was lovely to wake up to the birds and the cows and to have a walk around the garden and enjoy the peace.' 'I've had the most peaceful, wonderful, nurturing stay.'

It was absolutely perfect - the space, the surrounds and the beautiful eye for detail.' 'Alfie's was everything we'd hoped for and more. The beautiful setting away from (but within easy reach of!) Byron & surroundings, the immediate shoulder decompression you feel upon setting foot upon the deck, the opportunity to unplug from everyday life and reconnect with each other...We've already started planning our inevitable return visit.' 'Wow! Such a beautiful home away from home. A hidden oasis and perfect spot to unwind. An exquisite setting to kick back and take it slow.' 'Simple & stylish: loved the cottage.Calm green surroundings a joy.' 'Leaving refreshed with warm memories of a very idyllic holiday surrounded by birdsong & lush vegetation.

I could not fault Alfie's in any way, attractive décor with everything provided for a comfortable stay - I was accompanied by my two miniature schnauzers who loved the freedom of wide open spaces to run. The green hills and rain forest views are just...More
