Squeaky Gate Retreat and B&B
Welcome to Squeaky Gate Retreat
Where the river flows wide and free"
Covid 19 has been cruel to us, as has the extended closure of the Queensland border. So we have moved three of our spaces to permanent rental. This means the ONLY B&B space still remaining is the Courtyard Room.

We are located mid-way between Newcastle and the Sunshine Coast. There are no neighbours nearby, no noise, no stress; just watch the mighty Clarence flow by at your doorstep here at Ashby in Northern NSW, just 12 minutes off the Pacific Highway at Harwood.

There’s gorgeous views, birdlife… so much of it, kangaroos and wallabies, echidnas, great fishing out the front, great food and wine, and you’re within 20 minutes driving distance of the beautiful beaches of Yamba or Iluka.

We are dog friendly: You are welcome to bring your dog, so long as the dog is well behaved. We have our own staffies... Bella and Freddie... our friendly staff are always happy to serve you. They love pats.

Dining in: You may choose to dine in, or dine at one of the local restraunts or cafes. Just let us know if you wish to dine in with 24 hours notice.
We can provide for gluten free, lactose free, vegetarian and vegan diets. We are now licensed to sell alcohol to our guests, so you don't have to worry about the drive back after dinner.
Smoking: There is a smoking area downstairs. Smoking is not permitted upstairs.
