If you are looking for a weekend destination that offers complete privacy and seclusion but without isolation from shops, restaurants, quaint villages, horse riding, golf and more, then Hillcrest Cottage is for you. Set away from the main house in its own secluded rainforest garden a few metres from our salt-water swimming pool, our self-catering cottage enjoys some of the most spectacular views of any romantic couples getaway destination in the Tweed Coast or hinterland. The photo above was taken from the cottage lounge looking out through the double glass doors which open to a private verandah with comfortable sun lounges and gas BBQ.

For couples who appreciate the extra personal pampering of a small private hotel, Hillcrest Bed & Breakfast - which is located in a private guest wing of the main house - would be the best choice for your weekend destination.
The private guest entry and massage room are located between the two guest suites - so there are no common walls between the rooms for more privacy. Bed and Breakfast guests enjoy the extra personal touches such as bed turn-down and daily room servicing, as well as evening port and our full four course country style breakfast with home-made bread and our own free-range eggs.
Also located in the guest wing is a small, private guest lounge which opens, via 2 sets of double glass sliding doors to a charming central atrium with fishpond, tropical plants and resident Green Tree Frogs during summer and open fireplace for winter romance. Beverage-making facilities, guest fridge, DVD & music library, books, games and comfortable leather recliner chairs are provided in the guest lounge ~ along with a booklet containing our recommended restaurants and cafes in our beautiful valley.
Bed & Breakfast guests can choose from two luxury B&B suites ~ the Blue Room and the Spa Suite. Both the Bed & Breakfast suites and guest lounge have individually controlled split system reverse cycle air-conditioning. If you don't like air-conditioning then your room also has a ceiling fan so you can control the environment in your own space to your liking.
Rooms come fully equipped with televisions, dvd players, robes, pool towels and a selection of pillows. Both rooms have double glass sliding doors to a large verandah, with table, chairs and your own personal hammock outside each room. Both ensuite bathrooms come with bath towels, candles, hairdryers and a selection of toiletries to use during your stay.
Hillcrest luxury Tweed Valley accommodation is centrally located to 5 World Heritage listed National Parks, including Mt Warning, the spot where the dawn sun first touches east Australia, golf, horse-riding, scenic joy-flights, arts and crafts markets, galleries and more. We have a range of tourist information on-site and will gladly help you plan the best things to see and do during your stay in the stunning Tweed Coast & Valley hinterland ~ or you may choose to just kick back and enjoy a massage in the comfort of our private Massage Room or your own secluded Cottage.
Hillcrest is only 80 minutes drive from Brisbane, 35 minutes from Gold Coast airport and 40 minutes from Byron Bay ~ although if you're a beach person, then the Tweed Coast beaches are far quieter than those of Byron or the Gold Coast. Our central location, total peace, privacy and the fact that even when we're full we only cater for 3 couples in total make us an ideal honeymoon or romantic getaway destination.

Hillcrest was the first National Tourism Industry Council Accredited business in the Northern Rivers region, 4½ Star rated and we have won a Tourism Award or two, including the HMAA NSW State Award for Excellence in 5 Star Hosted Accommodation twice, the Tourism NSW State Award of Excellence and the Northern Rivers Regional Award quite a few times, so they put us in the Hall of Fame and asked us not enter any more. More importantly, we're pleased to be able to say that many of our guests return to us again and again to enjoy the peaceful ambience and spectacular views from Mt Warning to the rainforests of Springbrook ~ and many more leave wishing they could return from overseas more frequently to enjoy our Northern Rivers hospitality.
" What a blissful long weekend romantic destination. We've never been to Northern NSW before and you made us want to come back again and again. Thank you for a wonderful stay" Chris & Peta, Brisbane
