Magnificent established 50 acre cattle farm in the Northern Rivers Hinterland. 25 mins North of Byron Bay, 10 mins to Brunswick heads and the beach; and 5 mins off the M1 so easy access. The VALE is a perfect location to get away from all the stress and bustle of City life and enjoy the tranquility and peace and isolation of the rural lifestyle, though remaining close to the beach, shops, restaurants & the many surrounding cultural activities in the Byron Shire.

The space
Due to the coronavirus, we are taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. We have also increased the turnover time between guests to 28 hours to maximise our cleaning time. The owner is offering longer stays at a great price from $12,000 per month. The farm offers NBN Fixed Wireless Plus: 2-20 Mbps download. Suitable for HD video streaming
The farm house sleeps a maximum of 8 adults with 2 x King Ensemble Beds and 2 x Queen Ensemble Beds. On private request to the owner, for children I do have 2 quality roll-a-way beds that can be added to the 3 larger rooms. This is our family home and therefore has all the benefits of a loving home and not just a rental property. There are quality kitchen and dining goods with luxurious Sheridan towels and bedding.

There is an extensive video library with the very latest LED LCD Smart 55inch TV with Soundbar. Just walk in the door, connect your smart phone using bluetooth and you have access to your music, movies and TV shows. Netflix & Prime are also available.
There are many different living areas. Firstly, there is the large lounge suite seating 8 people comfortably. Outside on the front verandah there is an outdoor table and lounge setting. In the garden there is a marble table with 6 stools and another large outdoor table by the wood fired pizza oven. The Western verandah also offers another private area of seating with a 6 person spa under the wisteria pergola. Around the fire pit there is further seating to enjoy some toasted marshmallows or the lights and sounds of a crackling fire . This property provides many different spaces for privacy and social gatherings.

There are 4 bedrooms: the main French Room is grand with a private ensuite and walk-in. The Oriental Room has a private verandah overlooking the Western garden and continuing paddocks. The Cherub Room and Turquoise room also share the second bathroom. The bed linen and towels are by Sheridan and of the highest quality.

The kitchen is modern with a Miele dish washer and a country Euromaid 5 burner gas oven with 3 separate ovens. By the front verandah there is a BBQ and a very large wood fired pizza oven built in sandstone on the Southern side. There is also a fire pit for gazing at the stars. One never has to leave the property with the choice of cooking facilities - all of an extremely high standard.

The laundry has a washing machine and dryer of the latest Miele products (WKG130 + TKB450) with detergent provided.

There is a glider swing and spa for the romantics, cricket and badminton sets for the athletes, boules for the fun loving; and board games galore. We have Bond 007 Trivial Pursuit, jigsaw puzzles for all ages, cards, UNO and more. There are 2 chessboards and a board game set including checkers, backgammon, snakes & ladders and more. Entertainment galore.

For the adults, we have a roulette table with blackjack and craps.

The property includes a beautiful full-year running creek with a stone base that is perfect for lazing around on a hot summers day. The dam is a few minutes walk from the farm house though seasonal for swimming depending on how much rain we have had. If you prefer the creek, I suggest wearing a pair of old joggers when swimming as the creek is home to various native fish and other local animals. It is common to see perch, some platypus if you are very quiet, even an echidna or two as you walk through the paddocks.

Coles online can deliver your groceries to the door, so plan ahead and your order can arrive at the farm as you do. For guests staying more than a week we offer to pack away your groceries in the cupboards and fridge if your delivery is just prior to your arrival. Contact us for further details after booking. We also have a seasonal market garden supplying our own fresh fruit and vegetables.

Your family pet is welcome provided they do not interfere with the livestock, farm dogs or cause any problems. Pets must be pre-approved by the owner. Pets are permitted in the home, though not allowed on the furniture. The house area is fully fenced with both paddock fencing and an overlay of dog fencing. I strongly suggest your pet requires a quality tick and flea medication to ensure their health.

Not suitable for music festivals such as Splendour. This property is a place to relax and enjoy what the farm offers, it is not a noisy party place.

The property has a full time caretaker who manages the farm and lives 70m from the homestead in their own private area. The caretaker is available if you require assistance.

Guest access
Access is the homestead is via Chinamans Hill Rd - follow the signs. Guests have access to the whole 50 acres except the working shed areas and the private caretakers home. Some paddocks are off limits if the bull is mating - check with caretaker on arrival.

Other things to note
This is a farming area and farmers go to bed early and rise early. As the farm is in a dead end Valley and noise travels along the creeks and paddocks, if you plan to party noisily, we are not the place for your stay.
