Paddock Hall Farm Stay, Staycation

Sometimes (especially when your 25 weeks pregnant!) a little slow time at home is just what you need…well perhaps a home just slightly nicer than your own so that still feels like a holiday. A “staycation” if you will.

Introducing a brand new farm stay in Byron Bay’s hinterland region ‘Paddock Hall’. Situated on 20 acres just 5 mins from Lennox head and 25mins from the centre of Byron Bay this location allows you to completely relax amongst flowering gardens alive with singing birds, chooks, sheep and one very cheeky goat!

The property is composed of an open air guesthouse, with a chefs style kitchen, a large king bed and a lovely outdoor rustic bath which takes in a private view of the surrounding paddocks.

The afternoon was spent lazing by the pool in the sun and in the evenings by an open fire. From the local markets we bought fresh gnocchi, parmesan cheese and Church Farm’s passata and served this with tomatoes and herbs from the garden and Jilly’s local organic wine.

We felt like we had spent an evening in the French countryside without even stepping foot onto a plane and we truely never wanted to leave…
