As new owners, we have been influenced greatly by our extensive travels in Bali and India. We are hoping to create a little of that special ambiance at our guesthouse in Bellingen.
The Belfry has recently had a stunning makeover including being freshly painted inside and out while still retaining its original “Bello” charm with lush, tropical gardens, antique furniture, and scenic verandahs and decks.
Our guesthouse has many wonderful communal spaces for guests to enjoy; a commercial kitchen with plenty of fridge space, a music/drawing room with a piano and guitars, an eclectic library, hammocks on the deck, and many quiet verandah spots to relax and unwind. The atmosphere is family-friend at an affordable rate.
The Belfry Guesthouse has a strong community sense of belonging, giving back and supporting our wonderful Bellingen community. In 2016 we hosted the Gyuto Monks of Tibet in our guesthouse and provided a free, community weekend program for people to experience first hand the Gyuto Monks.
We support the Bello Winter Music Festival and are a major sponsor of the OUTA (Open Up To Art) Festival. Being part of our vibrant local community is very important to us.
