BELLTHORPE COTTAGE: Easy to take it Easy!

Enjoy the Surroundings

Get away from the crowds! Get into the country! Get into relax mode!

Located just over an hour from Brisbane in the lush, leafy area of Bellthorpe, the cottage is nestled in the green hills on a working farm, complete with its own rainforest, waterfall and resident wildlife.

With 120 peaceful acres, the timber cottage is a great place to get away from it all and take in the atmosphere. Accommodation in the cottage is self catering with wide verandahs, a well equipped kitchen, queen size bed, single bed in a separate room, wood heater. If you prefer, meals can be ordered with advance notice.

Check out the wild life, discover the rainforest, take in the sounds of nature, rest at the waterfalls, take a walk around and explore, tour the district or just sit back and relax, but whatever you do, you'll enjoy the surroundings.


At Bellthorpe, in the hills, between Maleny and Woodford, Queensland.

BELLTHORPE COTTAGE: Farmstay and Nature Retreat

Farming to Retreat

Over 100 years ago, part of the property was opened up to become a dairy farm until some 25 years ago when beef cattle became the main agricultural pursuit. The remaining three quarters is natural rainforest and ajoins Bellthorpe National Park. The property is now a hide away retreat, well away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Walking tracks on the farm will take you through the paddocks, to the creek, rainforest, waterfall, Bellthorpe National Park boundary and to glimpses of the Mary Valley. All this and you are only just over an hour from Brisbane and half an hour to Maleny.


Great little waterfalls – and on the property. We’ll be back! David and Judy, Sydney.

An amazing place to stay, beautiful cottage and awesome nature walks on the property! Was great to find a place that allowed my dog to stay too. Perfect! Sarah, Brisbane

Absolutely what we needed. No distractions, just peace and quiet. Hope to visit again. Donna, Beerwah Qld

The surrounding area is perfect for an adventure enthusiast. We spent both days off 4WDing through Bellthorpe National Park. Thanks again for such a fantastic weekend away. Nikki Brisbane

The property is absolutely gorgeous with splendid rainforests and views surrounding the location. The cottage provided everything we needed and very comfortable, clean and cosy; and our hosts were so lovely, courteous. Thanks again Wendy and Dave for such a pleasant stay! Matt and Pat, Bundaberg.

Bellthorpe Cottage exceeded our every expectation. The peace and quiet and tranquillity of the area amazing. We loved the local birdlife and exploring the local forests on our mountain bikes. We just wish it could have been longer. - Brad and Beth, NSW

Peaceful & Scenic

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the cottage at Bellthorpe Stays. Wendy the host was wonderfully helpful and friendly. The rainforest walks, waterfalls and bush tracks were great for exploring and we loved all the native wildlife as well as the chickens and Dodge the cattle-dog who visited is each day. We'll be back for sure!

Great place to stay to really get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We loved our cottage at Bellthorpe. It had everything we were looking for & more.The views from the verandah were spectacular. The abundant birdlife came right up to the verandah to feed from the bird feeders. The rainforest walk that led to the waterfalls was fabulous & worth the leech attack to get there & back! (no permanent damage done LOL)Especially loved lighting the fire at night & sitting back & relaxing with a wine to finish off the day. A thoroughly relaxing & enjoyable stay.
