| during your stay |
At THE TALLOW HOUSE, everything Suffolk Park has to offer is on your doorstep. With the beach track less than 100m across the road, it is also a beautiful stroll to Broken Head Nature Reserve and the Tea Tree Lakes. There is a children's park a short walk down Alcorn Street. The Suffolk Park Shops include a local grocery store, bakery (best coffee and fresh baked goodies on the premises), pub, restaurants, takeaways, shopping and chemist- all a short walk away. Local transport to festivals, Byron Bay and surrounds is on your doorstep.
If you venture out of our beachside village- just a short seven minute drive to the world famous, unique and truly magical Byron Bay, where you can try surfing, sea kayaking, diving, whale watching, a walk up to the iconic lighthouse, explore the art galleries, shops and markets, indulge yourself in yoga and a massage, or relax at one of the many restaurants and cafes. There are also other towns and beautiful hinterland surrounding us so you are able to escape to your ideal holiday destination, no matter what it may be. Your options are endless.
| our weekends at home |
We are on the main road of our beachside village, so we always feel ‘amongst it’, watching bikes ride past, families strolling to the beach and surfers running to the waves. You will hear people on the street passing by during your stay. Our weekends are full of strolls to Broken Head Beach to have a day long picnic or surfing the local breaks and heading down the road for a pizza dinner. We regularly venture into the ‘big smoke’ of Byron bay a seven minute drive away to enjoy all of what this fantastic little town has to offer and when we are feeling like a visit to the country, we head to the hills and enjoy Newrybar, Bangalow, Mullumbimby and all the other surrounding villages each one with their own distinctive qualities and flair. We have lived here for eight years, so if you are stuck for inspiration, just ask… we are more than happy to suggest some fun.
| side note |
Throughout the year, we run a small beachside studio “THE TALLOW ROOM”, which has gone swimmingly. We have met fantastic people from all around the globe, all of which have been super friendly and genuinely happy to be in our area. We have also had many positive reviews so that can give you more of an insight into who we are... THE TALLOW ROOM will be used as our storage during your stay, this will not be accommodating additional guests. Guest Access| location |
