Our beautifully furnished comfortable rooms, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom, have views of the surrounding countryside. Enjoy a relaxing stay or utilize the river kayaking, canoeing, fishing or just having a picnic. Just make it happen.
Your hosts Michael and Cheryl invite you to come and enjoy bed and breakfast by the Macleay River. Perched on a small hill Bellerive offers panoramic views from its many vantage points. This is the perfect place to relax . Take your time enjoy your stay. You will have your own bathroom, bedroom and sitting room with your own private entry. With tea and coffee making facilities and a home made continental breakfast including fresh fruit, home baked bread, muffins and home made jam. You might like to fish by the river for bass or paddle in a canoe/kayak or just skim stones from the shady bank. Energietic guests might like to hike through our temperate rainforest up the mountain, or venture into historic Bellbrook and meander along finding the historic markers throughout the town or visit the local hotel for an evening meal. Unspoilt by city lights the sky is at times crystal clear so star gazing is a treat for city dwellers.
Bellerive is only 50 klms west of Kempsey which offers shopping and cafes. The beaches of South West Rocks, Hat Head or Crescent are less than an hour away and offer much of the casual seaside attraction not found in the more heavily populated beaches of the North Coast.
Guests have access to a barbecue and utensils if they wish to cook a meal. They also have access to a swimming pool.

Exactly what we envisaged! Very welcoming, friendly but with respect for private relaxation in beautiful location overlooking the river. Views from every angle. This was a special occasion for us and Cheryl and Michael assisted in making it even more special by providing a bottle of champagne on arrival. Greatly appreciated! Besides the excellent breakfast provisions, chocolates and home-cooked muffins were supplied.Cheryl cooks an deicious 2 course dinner at a very reasonable rate, which we were glad we took advantage of. We would recommend Bellerive to couples looking for high quality rest and relaxation.
Cheryl and I have a love of farming and wide open spaces that is why we live where we live. I play golf, squash and love to kayak on the river.Cheryl loves gardening, walking,swimming,reading and sewing. We also like motorbike riding having ridden to many places around Australia. We have travelled overseas and have spent time in many bed and breakfasts. We enjoy meeting people and having a yarn over a cup of tea or an ale. We look forward to sharing our little piece of paradise.
