Afterglow – a natural indulgence
Treat yourself to a romantic getaway or relaxing break in an atmosphere of luxury and indulgence, amid a tranquil and picturesque natural landscape.
Only five minutes from the attractive and welcoming village of Bellingen, Afterglow Cottages nestles among 30 acres of rolling green hills and native woodlands in the beautiful Kalang River valley.
You can choose to stay in our new architect-designed cottage or the converted 1940s dairy - both now spacious self-contained one-bedroom cottages where quality new fittings and furnishings create an atmosphere of comfort and simple elegance.
Enjoy the sunset over the surrounding hills from your own private deck, indulge in a luxurious spa under the stars or simply relax and watch the abundant native birdlife and the wallabies that often graze on the grassy slopes at dawn and dusk.
Afterglow offers a perfect base for exploring Bellingen and the surrounding countryside – from World Heritage rainforest, cascading waterfalls and stunning beaches to the town’s vibrant cafes, famous festivals and friendly community markets.
To make the most of your stay…
…why not ask a local? We can help you to discover the best that Bellingen has to offer – from waterfall tours and scenic drives to local arts and crafts; from where to find the best bushwalks, beaches and swimming holes to help with arranging anything from canoe tours to natural therapies.
