Our beautiful farmstay is set on an 8 acre biodynamic permaculture working farm just 5 minutes drive from Bellingen town and our beautiful Bellinger River. Our vintage and recycled style offers you an eco-friendly and relaxing escape. We hope you enjoy all that our farm has to offer; fresh organic produce and eggs, and our farm animals, 100 chickens, 3 horses and 2 sheep for your children to enjoy. We have been hosting guests for 8 years and have been featured in several interior magazines.
We offer three unique properties under our WeilHouse Living umbrella. For direct bookings search Weilhouseliving. Our ethos combines our love and appreciation of beauty, nature and simplicity.
Our vision is simple, and reflects our commitment to providing eco-friendly accommodation to our guests in a way that limits our carbon footprint.
We have created a relaxed and homely space when you can relax and enjoy the surrounds. Our interiors are mix of pre-loved, recycled vintage and roadside collectables. The house is a two bedroom passive solar design and has a fully equipped kitchen. There is a queen sized bed in the main bedroom and two single beds in the second bedroom. Whilst we can accomodate 4 people comfortably we are happy to extend this to 6 guests if your children are happy to sleep on a single mattress on the floor. If you would like to do this please notify us of this in your message and we can organise this for you. There is one bathroom with shower, bath and laundry facilities. There is a fully fenced backyard, an outdoor bonfire area and a small orchard. Laundry facilities complete a very comfortable family stay.

Interaction with guests
We run a busy farm...but we always pop down and say hello (not always as soon as you arrive) and goodbye if we can. Then we leave you to your holiday. We are however, happy for you to come up and visit us and for your children to play with ours if we're around. We would like you to make yourselves at home and enjoy all that our farm offers.
Other things to note
Our house uses rain tank water and we recycle the grey water, so please only use biodegradable soaps and washing powers. We supply guests with laundry wash balls.
Please do not use any cleaning chemicals in the house or chemical based fly spray and cockroach spray as this impacts the health and well being of other guests.
We do not offer refunds, we understand that sometimes you may have to cancel your trip due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond your control, or that floods may prevent you from reaching the house. If this should happen we are happy for you to rebook your stay with us at a date that suits you and one that is free for us. If you do want to cancel and are able to give us enough notice, often we can find someone to take your booking and can then refund you your deposit.
We are dog friendly, however all dogs must stay outside at all times. This way we can manage the needs of all our guests. We have a comfortable verandah and enclosed back yard for your dogs to stay cozy and dry. If your dogs are not comfortable around our chickens please put them on a lead when moving around the farm. Please bring your dogs bedding and food bowls. We ask that you ensure your dogs are flea free. We take a bond of $100 in cash on your arrival to cover any accidental damage your dog may cause and we return this to you when you leave.
You may not have friends stay over night without incurring an extra charge. Please notify us if you would like to have guests stay over with you so we can adjust the price accordingly. Extra adults are $25 per night, extra children are $15 per night.
