arriving at the property after dark the first thing that struck us in the morning was the view from the terrace, stunning. The property exceeded expectations and the nearby town was delightful. Recommendations from the property owner were spot on
This place was perfect for our stay in Bellingen. It’s close to town, easy to find, clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure to sit outside and listen to the rain, and the view during the day was fantastic. It’s a beautiful place, and there is more than you would realise around Bellingen. Judy was lovely and helpful and a great host. We only really spoke at the beginning and end of the trip as she afforded us our privacy, but was thoughtful enough to leave us with the basics we would need during our stay. I really recommend this place if you’re looking to escape. Bellingen is great, but you could probably just sit on the porch all day and easily forget to leave. Very peaceful and relaxed, exactly the trip I needed.

A lovely country retreat close to the town of Bellingen. After a day of exploring the surrounding areas, Fernridge Farm Cottage was the perfect place to land with all the comforts of home. Judy left breakfast provisions for us and went the extra mile with additional touches, like chocolate chip cookies with the tea and coffee. She was the perfect host, touching base to make sure we were okay, but otherwise giving us our privacy and leaving us to enjoy ourselves. The place was very clean and had such a homely feeling about it. It was very hot weather when we visited so we were so grateful for the air-conditioning. We didn't need the fire, but I'd imagine it is very cosy during the winter. A lovely little cottage in a beautiful location. The perfect, peaceful getaway with the family.
Perfect!!! So cozy. Loved the stay!
Clean, tidy and so relaxing! Loved the stay. Close to the town. Perfect! Highly recommend!!
Fantastic place to stay. Quiet, peaceful and with great views. Cottage is well presented and well appointed, with even an outdoor laundry. Judy was away at the time but we were welcomed by her daughter who also lives on the property. The elusive Ralph gave us a mystery visit for two days before an official welcome on the third day! :) Cute pooch.. super friendly. A wonderfully relaxing stay and will definitely be looking to return with our fur child in the future.

Great country retreatHaving lucked onto Fernridge we were so pleasantly surprised by every aspect of our stay with all the lovely personal touches and absolutely beautiful location. Our very energetic border collie made the most of the expansive grounds plus a new friendship with the resident German Pointer Ralph. Our stay in what is a wonderfully warm and cosy cottage in a great spot could not have been better. We are looking forward to returning on a regular basis as is Bella. Greg and Carolyn

Instant relaxationThe minute we arrived we relaxed. Such beautiful views from the front verandah. The cottage was clean, the beds very comfortable and overall a lovely place to stay.
We had a wonderful stay. Fernridge is perfect. Your hospitality was exceptional. The little extras made it for us. It was perfect to show Wendy........... a step back in Australian history. We plan to come back again and will definitely recommend Fernridge to our friends. Thanks once again, for making us so welcome.

FFC is now our favourite retreat destination. Near perfect (for us). We loved the cottage, natural environment, peace, space and relative solitude. Thanks also for your warm welcome and hospitality. We consider ourselves privileged to have been given access to your cottage and property. We hope to retreat here more often.

Everything was perfect...... have recommended to others and definately staying again.
Warm and hospitable
Warmly greeted by delightful owners, Fernridge Farm Cottage certainly lived up to its expectations. The cottage was presented immaculately with nice breakfast provisions in the fridge, clean and comfy beds, and plenty of room to wander around. We sat on the verandas and soaked in that awesome view. We didn't want the weekend to end!

We have just spent 4 nights at the cottage and aloved it. It's spotlessly clean, comfortable bed (unusual to find), generour supplies for breakfast and a beautiful outlook. It's only five minutes to Bellingen, yet out in the countryside with great views and very private. We highly recommend this cottage and plan to return.
