Davies Cottage is a convenient base to explore the beaches and walking tracks of the Mid North Coast. The large balcony overlooks the bay and the headlands, and you’ll have views of native bushland from the north side of the cottage.

In winter, you might spot whales from the comfort of the balcony. Or it’s only 800m to the historic Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse, a popular whale watching spot. Visit Lighthouse Beach while you’re here – if you’re lucky, you may see dolphins frolicking in the waves. After your swim, rinse off in the cottage’s outdoor bathroom and enjoy spectacular beach views from the privacy of the cottage.

You’ll find countless opportunities to swim, surf and fish during your stay. Explore Boat Beach right on your doorstep, or take Treachery Headland walk to secluded Treachery Beach. Venture a little further to Yagon campground and meander through lush coastal rainforest along Submarine Beach walking track. Enjoy scenic views from the viewing platform before arriving at a great surf spot.

As you enjoy a barbecue on the deck, keep an eye out for the kookaburras or pied butcherbirds that live in the area. During the warmer months, possums, tawny frogmouths and bandicoots can make an appearance in the evenings.
