Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely stay in one of the cottages at Belltrees Station- Mitchell Cottage. It was comfortably and elegantly furnished, in an idyllic spot next to a river. Dinner was catered on our first night (at our request) - delicious roast beef and potato bake, with poached pears for dessert (we went to a nearby pub on the second night). The complimentary tour of the property was extremely interesting - the Belltrees story is a riveting part of Australian history, and the Homestead is, to say the least, impressive! Our host, Serena White, provided impeccable hospitality - just the right balance of being helpful but not too intrusive. If you are looking for an authentic country experience with a touch of luxury, then I would thoroughly recommend staying at Belltrees. It is useful to know that there is no mobile phone reception as you approach the property and while you are on the property (it cuts out just after you pass the town of Gundy if you are coming from Scone) - we rang to let Serena know we were about to arrive as we were getting close so she was able to give us instructions on which Cottage we were staying in.

We spent last weekend in Mitchell cottage at Belltrees, 2 couples and three children. It was gorgeous! So much history in this farm which has been in the family for many generations, it's around 30,000 acres of lush land, and our little cottage was set right by the river, close enough to hear the current rushing down past us.
We were given a tour of the property by Peter, and although a little hair raising (for this scaredy cat) it really was quite amazing being told about the property and getting to look out over the area from up high.
The cottage itself has been tastefully revamped, but has kept its charm. No tv, phone or internet reception meant lots of quality family time and it truly was so refreshing to get away from the city and simply relax.
We were allowed to explore the property further on our own which was nice, the shearing shed was interesting and yet another beautiful vantage point. The huge home was spectacular and rich in history also, retaining much of its original character.
Overall, Belltrees exceeded our expectations and we hope to go back some day for some more down time.

It is perfect for an escape from the norm, a place to enjoy the peace and quiet and get back to nature. Great for friends or family. Highly recommended!
Thanks for having us Peter and Serena.

What a great way to spend a interesting relaxing weekend. We stayed in a quaint cozy little cottage in idealic, peaceful surroundings. We arrived Friday evening to a delicious evening meal that we enjoyed in the comfortable and impressive dinning room in the Belltrees Guest House a bonus being we could take our own wine!!!!. Saturday we enjoyed a tour of Coolmore Stud followed by a tour of Belltrees estate and Homestead. Saturday's evening meal was catered for in our cottage. The only thing I would suggest is to take some form of entertainment such as a board game, cards etc. The cottage was clean,warm and comfortable.

We cannot really comment on the Cottages because we never got to see them... I booked a group of friends in the cottages here and made arrangements to arrive and pick up the keys etc. To cut a long story short, we arrived and there was no one to be found anywhere. No, notes, signs or anything to direct us to where we were supposed to go. Mobile phones did not work there so were unable to call anyone. After an hour we all left and went to Scone to find a motel. I eventually contacted the host who frankly was the rudest person I'd ever encountered in the hospitality industry. She is certainly in the wrong line of work is all I'll say.

So to sum up, the Belltrees Cottages probably are beautiful, but the organization is a shambles and guest are certainly regarded as an inconvenience, as they apparently keep the hostess away from the polo, as was curtly pointed out to me.

I spent 3 nights in the White(Sempil) Cottage on the Belltrees property with my 2 cousins last week. We three middle aged ladies had the most tranquil peaceful time, (who needs TV, phone reception or internet) when you can hear the music of birds, watch the sun set and rise not to mention the wonderful wood fire expertly set and lit each night by the wonderful Serena, we were truely in awe!! We had time to share family stories of our great grandmother who had lived on an adjoining property in the late 1800's and our grandparents who had attended school on Belltrees. We will definitely be back with my cousins, friends and family to share this wonderful place.

we stayed in the white cottage, looks cute and tiny but inside are three proper double rooms and space for a few extras, we were 8 adults and we had generous cooking and relaxing space, two fridges (fantastic, wouldnt want the wine leaving no room for the groceries) and stacks of glass and cutlery etc (makes a big difference when catering for a holidaying group that dont want to be constantly washing up) very special, beautiful spot, fantastic property, and the town of scone has everything you need in way of supplies. loved it.

We experienced a special weekend at the Belltrees property where we had exquisite hospitality with wonderful facilities. The cottage was very spacious with a lovely verandah to watch gorgeous sun sets and early morning coffee with the cows. Very well appointed with a luxuriously comfortable king bed and beautiful snug doonas.

We stayed in Mitchell Cottage with another couple for only one night and we wished we had stayed longer. It was such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay, and the cottage is comfortably, sensitively and tastefully renovated. I knew of the property from having worked in the area in the 1980s so it had a certain poignancy for me, but my companions who had never been in that valley before were also transfixed by it's beauty and tranquillity and fascinated by the history. We arranged for a meal to be brought to us which was excellent, though a little cold which was a pity. Otherwise we found it a perfect place to spend time and hope to go back as soon as another opportunity arises.

It was possibly the worst weekend to choose a weekend at Belltrees near Scone because of the incredible storms and flash floods. Despite the drought- breaking weather, we loved our weekend on this historic property. We stayed at White Cottage, which is the original building on the 9,000- ha station. It is set under the trees on the banks of the river. We cooked dinner ourselves on arrival although it is possible to have meals prepared. A tour of the homestead and the chapel the next day gave us an insight into pioneering life in rural New South Wales. The cottage was beautifully furnished and was very comfortable. A highlight was feeding the little donkey family in the neighbouring paddock. The only difficulty was the lack of cell phone coverage.
