Tallowood Farm offers the Cow Shed which is situated 130 meters from the main house on the 47 acre Kalang valley farm near Bellingen. You’ll enjoy absolute privacy and serenity, and access to your own private swimming hole in the Kalang River. Swim in the sparkling, fresh water (also perfect for kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and fishing). Go for walks in the pristine rainforest and hear nothing but silence and birdsong. Have a hit of tennis on our rustic clay bush tennis court. Paint a landscape scene of the view from the top paddock ‘en plein air’. Gaze out across the rolling green paddocks and our organic veggie garden or hang out with the cows - meet Bruce, Freckles and the rest of the gang!… and Eagle the horse. Feed the chickens and collect their fresh organic eggs.

The Cow Shed
What a gem! Both the cowshed as well as Gabrielle and Greg! This beautiful spot lays well tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and is an oasis of tranquility. The cowshed has everything you need and in combination with the exceptional hospitality of the hosts you don’t want to go home anymore. Playing the records, swimming in the river and star gazing next to the bonfire were definitely the highlights of our stay. We will be back soon!

The Cow Shed
The Cow Shed really exceeded our expectations, the property is peaceful, beautiful and the accommodation had everything we needed and more. We loved soaking in the tub under the stars and feeding the chickens and the horse each morning was the highlight of the trip for our 6 year old daughter. Gabrielle and Greg were so hospitable and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Couldn't recommend it more.

Such an amazing stay. The location was so peaceful and relaxing. Gabrielle and Greg were so lovely and have thought of everything you could need. One of the nicest places we have stayed and having a bath under the stars was definitely a highlight.

Like something from a fairy tale✨
Absolutely perfect, not only is the cow shed beautiful but it has everything you could ever want and more there too. Beautiful rainforest walks, swimming holes and picnic spots nearby. Amazing hosts who set up the place like it was from a fairy tale to help me surprise my wife on our anniversary, music and fire going, fairy lights , candles, and a nice hot outdoor bath under the stars. Couldn't recommend enough we will definitely be back!

The Cow Shed
A magical place
Gabrielle and Greg are the most wonderful, natural hosts. We got a very warm welcome to the Cow Shed and a rundown on how it all works and where everything is. Little, thoughtful touches abound around the cottage and you’ll likely find everything you need or want. Exploring the river, with pristine, crystal clear water, is a must. Hike around the surrounding forest or just laze away a few chapters in the hammock. In the evenings we cranked the wood fire, turned up the record player, poured a wine or four and had a hot bath on the deck watching the moon rising. The Cow Shed is a magical, romantic place, as is the beautiful Kalang Valley. We’ll be back and will also wholeheartedly recommend Gabrielle and Greg’s piece of paradise to friends and family.
