Country Cottage Calm

Set in the hills just a short scenic drive from Coffs Harbour hides the picturesque faraway cottage. As we drove through the clearing in the towering native forest up in the mountains, we felt a tranquil relaxation set in that stayed with us the entirety of our stay.

Our hosts Rachel and Matt, have poured their hearts and souls into this gorgeous cottage nestled in the bush, and the attention to detail and styling took our breath away. They have everything you could possibly need, and we immediately felt right at home.

There is nature as far as the eye can see, with an abundance of wildlife, bubbling creeks, gentle rivers (with kayaks!!) and pristine waterfalls. All this is within a short drive of the property, and there is just endless opportunities to explore the breathtaking surroundings. That is if you can drag yourself away from the cabin.

We spent endless hours sitting on the deck drinking in the all-day sun. We huddled around the fire by night, and the bathtub on the deck was a luxurious way to unwind, the perfect spot for stargazing on the love swing and immersing ourselves in the nature surrounding us.

These are the moments that help you surrender and truely enjoy lives little adventures. They are always different, and we can not wait to return.

Love swing
We popped and enjoyed a bottle of champagne while watching the sunset on the cutest wooden swing next to the cottage....
Bath at Sunset
The Bath was a highlight for me, especially watching the sun go down, watching and listening to all the birds, it was extremely relaxing and a beautiful experience....
Picnic and Nature walk
There is the cutest little pond surrounded by thriving nature, I loved walking down here at sunrise to see all the wildlife waking up, getting a drink and looking at all the beautiful colours reflecting off the water. Perfect place to have a picnic and read a book, or simply just wander the property....
Swimming at Bangalore falls
Breathtaking waterfalls, refreshing swimming holes surrounded by stunning towering trees. Once you find the track, you wont look back!...
Ulong General Store - Cafe In The Valley
Best burgers in town, they say, and we wouldn't disagree. You can get basically everything in the general store and the cafe is not only a bargain but it tastes good too! We went back for more....
Kayaking on the Bobo
Only a 1km walk down the road you will find the Bobo river where you can kayak up to 6km. Absolutely beautiful and not one person in site...
