Welcome to Belvoir B&B Cottages
Belvoir B&B Cottages
Belvoir B&B Cottages are located at Clarenza, on the southern outskirts of Grafton, in the heart of the picturesque Clarence Valley. Sitting roadside at our rural property, Ivy Cottage and Dairy Cottage share the front paddock of our 27 acres, with their own entrances and fenced yards, approximately 100 metres apart, making them very private and relaxing. We are one easy turn from the Pacific Hwy, 8 comfortable driving hours north of Sydney, 4 hours south from Brisbane.
Although only a five minute drive from Grafton, the rural setting is ideal for relaxation, peace and quiet and is perfectly located for travellers wanting an overnight stay or for guests wanting a quiet retreat to enjoy as a base from which to tour our area, including pristine beaches, national parks and delightful villages.
They are idyllic country cottages which have wonderful views in all directions, kangaroos and horses grazing alongside, and gum tree dotted paddock views.
If work or leisure brings you to Grafton, or just wanting a stopover when travelling, why not have the luxury of your very own boutique bed and breakfast cottage. Free wifi is available at both cottages.
The owners, Tom and Lorraine Raven, both born and bred Graftonians, look forward to welcoming you to their beautiful cottages and sharing their lovely location in the Clarence Valley.
Relax in our idyllic country cottages, Ivy Cottage and Dairy Cottage, which have wonderful views in all directions.
Bed & Breakfast
Enjoy a hearty breakfast, home baked treats, complimentary port and chocolates plus many extras.
Located in a rural setting in Clarenza, on the southern outskirts of Grafton, in the heart of the picturesque Clarence Valley.
An original workers cottage of the late 1800s, we have lovingly restored Ivy Cottage to retain its yesteryear charm and included all of today’s creature comforts for a very comfortable and memorable stay.
We have faithfully replicated a charming Clarence Valley dairy to its original design to provide another unique bed and breakfast cottage, and it even has its own rustic cream shed to greet you.
What others are saying about us
Loved our stay
We stayed in the dairy cottage, it was extremely comfortable, neat, clean, well presented and well catered. The owner gave us the perfect mix of support whilst having privacy and space. If you are looking for somewhere with Ye olde worlde charm to relax whilst in the area, you can’t go past these cottages.
We stayed in Ivy Cottage for a couple of days. It’s absolutely beautiful – completely tastefully furnished in keeping with this little 100 year old house. There’s everything you need – plus more. Lovely bedroom; bathroom (including claw-foot bath); kitchen (including a fabulous stove) – also a marvellous view out into the countryside, complete with kangaroos grazing and a really comfortable sitting room. Wonderful fresh ingredients are left for you to cook breakfast – and Lorraine spoils you with some home-made sweet goodies, as well. You feel like you never want to leave.
An absolute treasure
We stayed in the Ivy Cottage on our wedding night and a few nights after for mini honeymoon. We are local to the Clarence Valley but wanted an escape for a couple of nights and we could not have chosen a better place. It was so beautiful. Whenever I have family and friends needing a place to stay this will be my first pick. Thank you Lorraine for a wonderful stay.
A trip down memory lane
Ivy Cottage was pleased to host Peter McCarthy and his wife, Toria, recently in a trip down memory lane for Peter.
The cottage was the family home for Peter, his seven siblings and his parents, Doreen and John McCarthy, for most of the 1960s when it stood on its original position on the corner of Heber and Schwinghammer Streets, South Grafton before it was moved to its current site.
“It looked much better than I remember it, but it still felt like home from 50 years ago,” Peter said.
“It’s the home from which I left for school each morning and returned in the afternoon for a decade.
“I can still picture mum making scones and cooking Sunday roast dinners in the kitchen, although the stove in those days was a wonderful big wood-burning affair which also heated water for household use.
“The house was bigger when we lived in it, or maybe it just seemed that way to a little boy. The kitchen is slightly bigger now, and the old back section with the laundry, bathroom and a fourth bedroom didn’t make the transition.
“The indoor toilet and bathroom are certainly a huge improvement on the outside versions of the 1960s!
“The only thing missing is the huge backyard in which we used to play games, but it’s still there in my memories.
“Thanks Tommy and Lorraine for saving my family home and the memories which go with it.
“You’ve done a fantastic job restoring the original house.”
