The space

A self contained granny flat in beautiful Bellingen. Double bed, single fold up bed available, children allowed. Single bed is more suited for a child. Own bathroom, kitchen with kettle, microwave, fridge, griller and electic frying pan available for use. Situated on the mid north coast of NSW midway between Sydney and Brisbane this property is located in a heritage property in the heart of Bellingen, but tucked away in a quiet, lovely garden with birds, veggie patch, fruit trees, cat and a dog. You will wake to the sound of birds, and fall asleep to the sound of frogs. You can access our vege garden and fruit trees.

We provide milk, tea, coffee, muesli for a light breakfast.

The bathroom is large and airy with a shower where you step on beach pebbles. We provide home made soap made with our own essential oils.

The Cottage is only a two minute stroll into historic and alternative Bellingen township with its many organic cafes and coffee shops, award winning restaurants and gelato bar, boutique shopping, galleries and craft shops. The Cottage is a 20 minute drive to either the World Heritage Rainforest of Dorrigo or the beautifully quiet beaches and river of Urunga, and Coffs Harbour.

The Cottage offers the following:
•Ensuite bathroom
•Antique double size bed
•Linen and towels provided
•Parking in lane way behind cottage
•Warm and welcoming hosts.

Swimming in summer is a 2 minute walk to the Bellinger River or 10 minute drive to to the clean and deep fresh waterholes of the Never Never River or in our pool. A further 15 minutes and you reach the coastline, where kilometres of near-deserted beaches can be explored. Surfers love Hungry Head, Third Headland, Urunga Headland and further south, Valla Beach, and Nambucca Heads.

We had a great overnight stay at Shani's granny flat. It was clean, warm and comfortable. Shani and Steve were accommodating and welcoming, but not at all intrusive. We appreciated being able to bring our dogs. A minute's walk to Popla restaurant, which was wonderful. We'll definitely stay next time we visit Bellingen.

A cosy and comfortable little cottage that very quickly feels like 'home'. Plenty of warm quilts to use when the temperature drops to 2 deg and the heater works well. Shani & Steve are lovely hosts who are accommodating, communicate well and respect privacy. The location is a short walk to shops and cafes, yet the area is quiet and peaceful (even during festival time).

We loved how spacious and private the little cottage was. It was great having a separate back entrance. It was very clean and so close to town! I also enjoyed reading one of the novels available. Oh, and wonderful soap!

We were comfy and cosy at Shani's place and it met all our needs for a stopover on the way to Brisbane.

I love travelling and I am always planning our next trip. We have recently returned from Cambodia and Vietnam. I have been a traveller since I finished university. I have been to India, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau, Fiji and Cambodia. On my list is Laos, Ireland, Tibet and Cuba. I am a teacher and my husband is a builder. I have a book collection and my husband a tool collection. We have two children still at home, two working, as well as one at uni and one doing an apprenticeship and two grand daughters. We like to grow our own fruit and veges. We grow and distill Lemon Myrtle and Aniseed Myrtle at our farm, as well as other bush foods. We make our own soap and jam which is available for purchase. We have a slight addiction to Dorper sheep. We like floating around in our boat in the river and off shore catching fish. We love living in beautiful Bellingen and wouldn't live anywhere else.
