Who we are
Welcome to Weilhouse Living, We have 4 unique properties that embody our love of nature, beauty and simplicity. All our country getaways are in NSW and are designed and built with recycled materials and furnished with a wonderful collection of Australian vintage and country collectables. Our homes are designed to merge effortlessly within the surrounding landscapes to take full advantage of the surrounding beauty. We believe that we offer the best farmstay in NSW, as all our country retreats are beautiful, family friendly, and are fully equiped with everything you may need for your farm holiday. Nothing is too hard for us, so our level of service and care are of the highest quality, ensuring that you are well looked after for a fantastic farmstay experience.
We have three beautiful country getaways in Bellingen NSW, and an off the grid wilderness hut in the New England tablelands in Hernani, a stunning country retreat in NSW only one hour from Bellingen. Each property has been lovingly built and restored to maximise their natural surrounds and to tread lightly on the planet.
Our ‘Funny Farm’
Our 3 Bellingen farmstays are situated on our stunning 8 acre biodynamic working farm only 5 minutes from Bellingen town. Here we grow beautiful seasonal farm fresh organic fruit and veggies and delicious eggs for you to enjoy when you stay with us. We grow this for ourselves, our guests and a few select cafes and restaurants. Our farm practices include both permaculture, organic and biodynamic growing principles.

We have mangoes, Davidson plums, lychees, mandarines, oranges, limes, lemons, olives, figs, Brazilian cherries, two varieties of guavas, cherry guavas, custard apples, papayas, Thai guavas and bananas to name a few.

What we offer you
We believe that spending quality ‘down time’ surrounded by nature and wildlife, offers our guests the opportunity to really switch off and slow down, and for a short time escape the grind of daily life, so that you can return home feeling inspired, rejuvenated and uplifted.
We have something for everyone, as each of our accommodation in Bellingen is distinctively different, catering to a wide range of tastes and needs from exclusive high-end designer rural living, to a relaxed vintage farm experience, or an affordable ‘budget friendly’ converted shed. Our remote off-the grid wilderness hut in the mountains, caters to those who want to experience being in the Australian bush. All four of properties are child-friendly, private, peaceful, and laid back.
Three of our properties are located on our beautiful 8 acre working farm, a five-minute drive from Bellingen town. Two of our homes have featured in interior magazines and a coffee table book due to their “unique ” interiors and style. Our off the grid hut, featured in Frankie’s ‘Spaces magazine’, and is a magical Australian bush hut set amongst two pristine national parks with wonderful swimming and fishing spots, hiking and horse riding trails to explore. The vibrant, rustic, laid-back style we have created in these distinct homes is enhanced by our commitment to living simply and in harmony with the environment. We do this by farming organically and preserving the remnant bushland on our properties, to the passive solar design and our use of renewable energy. We also take great care to limit our use of resources by recycling water and waste back into our farm, furnishing our home with antique, vintage and recycled interiors and doing our best to live a simple life.
