Due to the pandemic, Hermes Estate can no longer comfortably bring staff on site for its VIP guests.

The landlords have been working on other projects since early 2020, and have leased the estate to us until at least 2027. The Hermes Estate brand continues to provide & expand on its gift products.

We are therefore now operating as contactless ‘Hermitage Estate’ until the pandemic effects pass.

Guests will no longer have personalised bespoke pampering, (private buttler, chef, chauffeur, executive assistant, daily spa treatments, open bar, turn down, gifts and unlimited provisions etc) at 22,000 per night.

Instead, guests will enjoy a sumptuous yet contactless environment, with all the spacious beauty of the estate and luxury provisions at 2800 per night.

The booking party will still be the only exclusive guests on site, with the Estate all to themselves.

Bellingen Nature Bike Rides

Explore nature around Bellingen by mountain bike.

What better way to really connect with nature while enjoying some activity, than riding a bicycle? Hermes Estate offers mountain bikes for guests to take on trips around the beautiful Promised Land and Gleniffer areas. If you prefer to ride somewhere more intense, ask your butler to recommend, or chauffeur you to some picturesque areas to ride.

As an alternative, ‘Bellingen Nature Bike Rides‘ is a locally owned and operated family business in Bellingen. They provide tailored mountain bike hire in the Bellingen Shire. Reasonably priced short-term hire is available from their home in the forest, with native bush land trails accessible from their doorstep. Enjoy the tranquility and beauty of tall hardwood forests and moist rainforest gullies.

The company also offers a bike drop-off and pick-up option, to your local accommodation or chosen location within the Bellingen area. Options for rides include established bike trails along the scenic Urunga seaside, where you can bike along to lovely Sawtell. Or you could go in the other direction and follow winding Glennifer road. Ride through stunning rainforest out to the Promised Land for wonderful pristine swimming locations in the Never Never River.

The company encourages you to reconnect with the simple joy of bike riding. They provide late model mountain bikes, designed for comfort and easy riding. Bellingen Nature Bike Rides provides a healthy, fun and environmentally friendly way to explore and experience the unique Bellingen Shire and surrounding beautiful locations.
