This hand built mud-brick and stone studio cabin is an inspirational space, flooded with natural light, enhanced by the the warmth of the earth bricks and the beauty of the local stone. Designed thoughtfully and with sensitivity by an award winning environmentally conscious designer.
The space takes full advantage of the setting and makes the most of the local climate.
The studio is set up with a couple in mind and is not suitable for children due to the ladder to the loft bedroom which has a really comfortable queen size bed, always with 100% cotton sheets and views of the tree tops, the alternative and the summer choice to using the ladder and loft is the comfy day bed on the ground floor also a full size queen bed.
This quirky, open planned space is furnished for beauty and comfort with all the comforts of a home. Enjoy the visuals of art by local artists and laze in the lounge or in the comfort of the the queen sized and cushion filled day bed, all bathed in the mid winter sun. The huge north facing windows bring the out side in and encourage you to gaze out at the green of natural world or study the star filled night skies in this special valley.
The loft with ladder is not suitable for children, less able adults and elderly people, so we restrict our bookings to adults only and ask guests to consider carefully their own needs and request the appropriate bedding choice when booking the studio space. So if you feel you can't manage the ladder access (see photos) let us know and we will make up the queen size day bed on the main/ground floor level, the ground floor bed is the better choice for the summer months in Bellingen.
The large bathroom also with northern aspect has plenty of space, a spa bath for relaxing in and plenty of solar hot water.
Sit and chill on the cool southern verandah, or relax and cook outside by the brassier on the northern veranda and truly be on holidays. Get creative and utilize the large outside space that can be set up for work in ceramics or with an easel if you prefer to paint.
The main house on the property, further down the driveway is far enough away for your privacy and close enough if you are in need of anything or would just like a chat. Mobile coverage is limited in many areas in the Bellingen shire including our place but there is internet available in the studio and the house land-line number can be used for any urgent contact needed (we will give you the number before you arrive).
We do not cater for pets, as there is no fencing on the property and we value our abundant bird life on the property
