An iconic and rustic Aussie hut with a few added creature comforts. The Hobbit House, as it’s affectionately called, is nestled into the gardens behind the trees, looking out over the river flats where the Kalang River passes through. Suits couples. Everything provided for your stay, just BYO food and toiletries.
It was built in the 1980s as Bellingen Shire was still growing as a hippie hang out.
The charm is the handmade mud brick & reclaimed timber construction, the composting loo, the semi-detached bathroom, the indoors wood fire heating & the Hobbit style stairs and doors. With reverse cycle aircon, TV, internet, a cosy double bedroom, it’s an experience in real bush living with a few creature comforts.
Hours of walking, star gazing, bird song, swimming in the river, cosy firepit evenings, and visiting the local Bello cafes and shops makes a lovely weekend getaway.
We live on the property, close by. If you love the outdoors Aussie bush and all it entails including the outside lizards on the roof, nocturnal antechinus sightings and the uniquely characteristic wildlife & weather…. this is for you.

Gorgeous rainforest escape
What a dreamy escape! The cabin is gorgeous, for starters, but there's also something magical about being immersed into a lush valley for a couple of days. It rained throughout my stay but I think that actually added to the experience: drinking tea, reading books, eating cheese, listening to the drops fall onto the roof, breathing the earthy fresh air. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or a solo reset.
Cosy, lovely, wholesome,quite, lush
My partner and me staid at the hobbit house for two nights and we had such a great time. Really lovely and helpful hosts and the swimming hole was one of the highlights. Loved the cosy house and the outside bathtub a lot!
The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and little fireplace in the house and outside if needed.
If you want to spend some quite time in the hills this is the Perfect Spot.
10 out of 10 for the whole experience!!
We had such a magical time at the Hobbit House. Such an incredible property to wonder through, 30 mins up the gorgeous Kalang Valley from Bellingen. It was so great to settle in and snuggle down for a few days - the stormy weather suited us perfectly. A warm bath, a toasty fire - the best!
The humble hobbit home was an enchantment straight outa fairy tale land !!!!
The fire place was prepped, waiting patiently for our single match, once lit we were spoilt in warmth with cozy blankets and cushions that lend a hand into deep relaxation.
Bending down to enter the yoga space reminded us of the importance of being humble, bowing heads to all the little things in life that need to be nurtured in order to grow.
After some stretches, bubbles were opened, Celebrating life and all the small wins throughout the evening, we then discovered a funny sign after midnight!
The place really earnt our hearts by all the small touches of tenderness on display.
We really enjoyed the myrtle essential oil from ur burner and the tangelos were so tasty, we were prepared with our own juicer. Other wins was the coffee ritual, the super hot and lovely bathtub, feeding the chickens our compost in the morning, visiting the loo with a view (most fave loo of all time!!!) waking up in a very comfy bed, all the soft warmies, the fire pit, geeze the list just keeps going.
The wild and rugged swim spot was icey cool invigorating and the bellingen weather just turned it on for us with sun rays beaming through the stained glass nooks. We were totally encapsulated in hobbit bliss, big special thanks to the host who also made some extras possible for me to purchase, I bought a handmade candle for my guest and was very delighted to hear that the candle she received was her favourite scent!!
Our rendezvous was so special, was very happy to have filled the fridge with yummy local delights from Bellingen, our left over hummus went superbly with the carton of eggs we ordered with the place too. Such a treat!!! Now I know where all the fairy live!
A hidden gem
The Hobbit House is so epic! My partner and I had the most wonderful winter stay over a weekend. The place is super cosy and comfortable with all you’d ever need. We could have easily stayed for a week. It’s a unique eco-type experience that makes you feel like you’re back in the hippie 70’s. The place was built during those times, by the way!
The fireplace is glorious, the bed is comfy and we enjoyed a lovely hot bath in the semi-outdoor bathroom. There are plenty of fun games and sounds of nature to keep you entertained.
Bellingen township is about a 30 minute drive through the spectacular Gondwana rainforest and there are endless beautiful hikes within 1hr radius of the residence.
Bec was a friendly, hospitable and welcoming host with great communication throughout. Plenty of privacy, which adds to the experience.
I’d highly recommend booking this great little hidden gem for a nature-filled getaway. You won’t regret it!
What an absolute hidden gem !
The idyllic rustic little cabin. Very rustic, but everything you need to escape.
The perfect place to get away from the world .. sitting in the sun on the veranda with a good book with the sounds of the running creek and wildlife to sooth your soul .. or curled up in the couch with the fire to keep warm !!
Waking up to the sounds of nature and not having to get up from your comfy bed but just lay and soak up the views.
Make sure you take some bath salts and enjoy a candlelight soak in the privacy of the outdoor bath and not to forget the view from the loo !!
Make sure you take plenty of good and snacks do you don’t have to go to town and can enjoy total seclusion !!
Rustic with creature comforts
Or stay at the Hobbit House was perfect. It’s such a cosy little shack that is perfectly private, although Bec is very close by. The creek was flowing and pristine. The bush was beautiful. The bed was a fairly comfortable double. Kitchen was well equipped. The outdoor bathroom was fun, and the view from the loo, perched in the canopy was second to none!
We felt very welcomed and comfortable and would love to return someday.
