Tranquil garden cottage, a short drive from the historic village of Newrybar, 15min from Lennox Head's beaches and 25min to Byron. Pet friendly. A covered north facing balcony bathes in sunshine and looks across the garden that you share with 8 hens who lay fresh eggs for breakfast! Doors open directly from the bedroom to a 2nd deck thats shaded by the canopy of a Poinciana tree. Open plan living area, with modern kitchen, and the unique bathroom have large windows that bring the outdoors in.

The space
People fall in love with our home, with its Balinese accents in its idilic hinterland setting. Hens roam free in the garden, whilst horses graze in the paddock behind. Prior to early 2020 the cottage had a permanent resident who booked 2 weeks but stayed for 3 years!!

Guest access
As well as your own private cottage you'll have two private decks and full access to the gardens.

Other things to note
The cottage has its own seperate NBN connection making it the perfect spot to ‘work from home’.
