If there’s one thing we’re seeking in a Byron Bay getaway, it’s that one-of-a-kind roof over our head; the type of roof that separates our holiday from the next person’s and maybe throws a little Insta-envy in the face of our social followers, too. Lovers of farm life, welcome to Paddock Hall, a blissfully small but modern guesthouse located in Tintenbar in the lush Byron Bay Hinterland. Praising open-plan design in support of rural views over the working macadamia nut farm, Paddock Hall provides the perfect getaway solution with its use of sustainably sourced timbers, exposed beams, vintage claw foot bath on the veranda, tranquil pool and a fireplace for chilly nights. Rise, shine and inhale the fresh country air as you enjoy a breakfast catered by Newrybar’s Harvest (optional) or a wander to visit the resident sheep, goat and chickens. We know what you’re thinking, and to confirm; yes, Paddock Hall is as impressive as it sounds.
