Guest Access

A short walk to the Bellinger River (always cool - great swimming) and Bellingen town, sup and sip at the old Federation Hotel, great meals, or the equally historic Old Butter Factory ,hire a canoe, paddle at leisure, take a guided historic walk tour, visit the local museum - (Bellingen has a fascinating history, right back to boat building and lumber felling, ) hire a kayak, visit Dorrigo and the Rain Forest walk, gallery and restaurant,drive the Promised Land ( bring a camera!), surf at uncrowded nearby beaches, play golf at the local 18 hole course , visit the treasure trove Yellow Shed.
So much to do- so little time !

Interaction with Guests

As much as we and they want and is appropriate- We are happy to recommend activities, ( Brochures provided too ) restaurants etc, guests are welcome to use our BBQ, and sometimes by mutual consent, join us for a dinner, or a coffee in town, or sip a glass of wine with us on one of our many roofed balconies . Guests tell us they enjoy breakfast on their own private balcony, accompanied by background bird noises !

The Neighborhood

We bought this house 4 years ago in good part because we loved the lush, green rainforest gardens and the privacy these afford. This whole area is beautifully rich in rain forest plants, birds, water dragons and even a friendly local Koala who often runs across our lawns and LOVES posing for pics ! We cater very generously, and enjoy spoiling our guests a little ! BnB's are so much more personal and peaceful than motels- we stay in them ourselves when we have a break for that very reason. Let us spoil you !

Getting around

There is a regular bus services to Coffs Hbr and surrounds, the Coffs Hbr airport is just a 25 min drive away from Bellingen, Urunga Rail approx a 15 min drive, We are easy walking distance to town , cafes and shops , river, parks and most of the activities mentioned previously. Come see !

Other Things to Note

Our guests comment on how peaceful, relaxing, even romantic, our suite is, how generously we cater, and how they enjoy the privacy and bush and mountain outlook from their covered deck .
We have a guest book filled with lovely, appreciative comments. We care.

  • The stay with Adele at Touchwood in Bellingen was wonderful. The setting was peaceful and private; everything that you could want in a B&B. The room was very comfortable with Queen bed and quality linen, large modern en-suite with heated towel rack, and off street parking. We arrived for a wedding a little earlier than check-in and Adele kindly let us settle in early. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for reasonably priced quality accommodation in Bellingen.

    Response from Adele:

    Thank you Dave - we enjoy having guests and endeavor to make their stay as enjoyable and as comfortable as we can ! The guest suite is attached to, but S.C. and separate from, the house, so peace and privacy is not hard to ensure ! Thank you both for being such considerate guests, hope we see you again soon !

Hello from Adele and Dennis in Bellingen , Australia. . We enjoy sharing our unique home here in this beautiful rainforest country . Dennis, my husband, and I have travelled both in Australia and overseas, often staying at BnB's and thoroughly enjoyed the very REAL experience of being with "Locals" who knew their area, and culture - a very different experience altogether and far more comfortably homely than impersonal, glossy hotels ! I determined then that this was something I wanted to do on retirement - we both enjoy meeting people, and sharing our home and over the last 18 months have had many visitors here. Advertising is a new venture, time to broaden our horizons ! If we were to have a Life motto, it would be to make the best of every day in every way! We came to Bellingen on holiday a few years ago, and stayed, as many people have! It has such an old world charm, atmosphere and energy, and is home to many celebrities- creative writers, artists, media personalities etc. The village hosts five major music events each year, from World to Reggae, Jazz and folk and caters for all tastes /activities with a popular 9 hole golf course, bush walking, canoeing on picturesque Bellinger River, swimming, and fishing. We also have an amazing, well known market on 3RD Sat each month, where the many local artisans sell their work. There are not so many of these unique villages left, not a Macca's in sight ! You will be assured of a warm welcome with us, we will respect your desire for privacy or share what we have with you, by invitation ! Your room is well stocked with books, magazines and music, plus info on bush walks, canoeing etc, so whatever YOU want to do is pretty much catered for.Just sit in the garden and read if you wish ! We enjoy our tree screened home, furnished in an Asian eclectic style, and surrounded by rain forest gardens. I cook up a pretty mean Beef Mussaman when the occasion demands! We look forward to meeting you.... Adele and Dennis.
