Our little family had a great 2 night stay at riverside farm. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly form the beginning. The cabin is quaint and loved the little touches like the fresh farm eggs! It’s a very picturesque location with plenty of activities even though it had a bit of rainfall whilst we were there. We really enjoyed the games room which had ping pong, pool table and board games. Leanne took us a lovely tour of the farm in the 4WD where we got to meet and feed the cows . We also got to hang out with their little goat family which were very friendly. If you are someone that enjoys unique experiences with a beautiful setting this the place for you

That was the best farm staying experience we ever had! The view on Macleay River is just undescribable regardless of the weather. Even if it's raining (just like when we arrived) there's a fantastic game room next door with table football, billiard ping-pong and other things to keep everybody entertained.
Leanne and Scott were very kind to show us their lovely paddock and surrounds. We even had a chance to feed the cows. And goats! - they are so nice.
Both sunrise and sunset is wonderful there, and when sitting near the fire it gets even more romantic and relaxing.
Leanne and Scott were very helpful and welcoming and made our stay truly unforgettable.
We can definitely recommend this place to everyone who loves countryside lifestyle and breathtaking landscapes.

My family and I had a great time at Riverside Haven. It was my son’s first experience on a farm and he had a great time running around. We loved playing table tennis together. Visiting with the goats and the cows was a memorable experience as well. Leanne was a great host!!
Despite the large amount of rainfall we still had the best time together and it was a very intimate experience for us and we will have great memories of it for many years.
It’s not often we get to have trips like this and I am so glad we did it here. Thanks guys!!

We had a fantastic stay at Riverside Haven. Leanne and Scott were wonderful hosts who were generous with their time, showing us around their property.
We loved collecting fresh eggs each day and cooking them on the BBQ.
It was also a pleasure to wake up each day and see the majestic view.
Thanks for a great stay! 🙂

That was one of the best places we’ve been so far and definitely the best among our farm stays. The playroom has everything to entertain kids of any age, which is especially helpful on a rainy day. Leanne and Scott were very kind to give us a lift to the paddock and the creek. We had a chance to feed the cows as well as the goats who came to the fence near the house every now and then.
The amazing sunset and sitting near the firepit late at night were like a cherry on a tart. Highly recommend to everyone who loves countryside places. We wish this wonderful farm to grow and blossom in all ways possible!

We had such a wonderful stay, our three boys loved it. We booked last minute to escape the wild storms along the coast. Leanne was so quick to reply & allowed us to stay in the studio & cottage/games room.
We want our own farm now! I don't think you could find a better place to stay. There is endless activities from swimming in the warm river to hiking up the hills behind the house. The boys favourite moments would have to be; feeding the animals, riding the tractor & of course every game in the games room.
Thank you so much! The fam xxx

Thanks so much Scott and boys for the warm welcome, as well as the introduction to your chickens, goats and cattle.
The views from the "back" of your property were spectacular... this and the sound of the river below our studio, plus just sitting around the firepit at night, made our short getaway feel like much longer.
It was the refresh we all needed - thanks for sharing your beautiful part of the world with us!

What a beautiful and relaxing getaway!
The property has the most amazing views & laying in the hammock reading a book was the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
There was everything you need to escape & enjoy the peace and quiet. 😀
