About Our Home

Country Castle is a majestic and quirky chic original queenslander home circa 1880s perfect for your weekender, romantic haze or echo friendly retreat.

A private sanctuary high set on an expansive ridge line with some of the most magical hinterland views in the Byron Bay Shire. We are also nestled amongst lush gardens, huge fig trees, macadamias, mangoes and wildlife in our echo-friendly rainwater sanctuary yet only minutes to the funky town of Mullumbimby.

Country Castle is ideally located 6 minutes to the Blues Festival site; 10 minutes to Splendour, 6 minutes to nearest beach at Brunswick Heads, 5 minutes to the famous “Farm” and 15 minutes to Byron Bay. Indulge the vast north facing terraces, endless skies, all day winter sun and coastline breezes. This grand old lady has large rooms with 16ft high ceilings, eclectic mid century and deco furniture, original hoop pine heritage floors and a very chilled feel. Two verandahs take in the vista, plenty of lounge spaces, a formal dining room, piano room and reading and writing nooks. There is a cosy TV wing with huge usb TV,

Netflix plus old fashioned board and lawn games for all your big kid needs. The home has 3 queen bedrooms upstairs and an enormous self-contained studio apartment downstairs. There is one full bathroom upstairs with separate toilet and combined bath and toilet downstairs. The apartment doubles as your yoga/dance studio with mirrors and barres and gorgeous views over the garden. We recommend 6 persons upstairs and 2-4 in the self-contained apartment.

Although you will feel far away from it all, Mullumbimby’s restaurants, 18 hole golf course and a tranquil olympic pool set amongst palm trees are only a couple of minutes drive away. Country Castle is 35 minutes to Gold Coast and Ballina airports with stunning National Park walks only 30 minutes away.
