Welcome to Aylmerton House C1870! From the moment you drive through the wrought iron gates and sweep past the fountain on the circular drive up to the front door you will feel this grand lady's presence. Or perhaps take the sandstone path through the Camellia arches past the partiere and the cottage to the cosy back end of the house. Either way, this property will surprise and delight you at every turn.

The period home stands on 5 acres of lawns and gardens including partiere gardens, vegetable patches, bocce court, large grassy areas, rose gardens, hedges, trees all shades of Autumn, dam with fountain, playhouse, courtyards - shady and sunny and covered verandahs. There is a nook for each season and every occasion.

Living areas comprise the grand formal dining room with table to seat 14 and massive open fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped and offers another cosy open fireplace with copper pots and central marble island bench top. A great place to cook up a storm for your dinner party. Across the massive hallway is a drawing room with open fireplace, relaxing sofas at one end and beautiful card/games table at the other. At the end of the hallway is a large casual sitting room with tv, comfy sofas and occasional chairs and slow combustion wood heater, opening out onto a warm sunny courtyard with outdoor furniture and bbq. Covered walkways take you to the Cottage and Garden Room offering another small living area and kitchen along with additional sleeping quarters and a bathroom.

The formal end of the house is deliciously cool in summer and there is central heating as well as 3 fireplaces in winter.

Janelle, July 2015

"A wonderful property with everything you need. Feels like a second home - a perfect place to stay and enjoy."

Andrea, March 2015

"We had a truly wonderful weekend in the Southern Highlands at Aylmerton House. We cant recommend the house enough! Everybody enjoyed thoroughly and it was a perfect setting for our weekend away. I would have no hesitation in recommending the house to friends."

Michelle, July 2014

"Aylmerton House is an absolutely stunning 1870s house. We were all wowed when we arrived on our first night and just moved from room to room completely mesmerised, taking in the style and intricate details of the house. Highlands Holidays had turned the heating on for us so it was warm when we arrived, which was a lovely touch. We woke up the next morning to the beautiful views of the surrounding 5 acres of land. All the bedrooms are decorated beautifully and the beds are very comfortable. The house is massive and even with a large group of us we had plenty of room. Although the oven is on the small side (NB: there is another kitchen in the cottage and also a BBQ), the kitchen has everything you need to cater for a large party including Le Cruset cookware and a Royal Doulton dinner. We spent our afternoons relaxing in the drawing room eating cake and drinking tea and taking walks around the grounds (we joked that we felt like part of the aristocracy!). Our evenings were spent dinning in the exquisite candle lit dining room, in front of the open fire. For those who enjoy mod-cons there is also a huge flat screen TV in the living room. On the few the occasions that we were able to drag ourselves away from the comfort of the house, we enjoyed some of the nearby wineries and quaint villages. We loved our stay and we would recommend this property to anyone wanting a relaxing weekend away in complete comfort and style. The only trouble is that on our next weekend away it is going to be hard to find a property that lives up to Aylmerton House!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING - Would return again tomorrow! I am not usually one to write reviews but I just wanted to say how totally blown away I was by this property! I booked this property for a Christmas in July weekend for 14 people, the house was absolutely perfect for this, having 2 kitchens was amazing, both stocked with everything we needed. All my friends loved the place and kept asking me how I found such a gem! The house is obviously well looked after as well as the grounds of the property. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and hope to return one day myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly Country Escape This property is even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures. We stayed here as a group of 10 and the house is spacious with so many lounge areas and courtyards that it never felt cramped or crowded. The decor is really tasteful and the grounds lovely for morning walks. Plenty of dishes, crockery etc. Generally clean and tidy. We had a minor incident during our stay where the cottage door lock malfunctioned and we couldn't get back in. The lady on call was very polite and friendly and got a lock smith out to us within 20 min. Would definitely return here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous large old country home We stayed at Aylmerton with all the family to celebrate a big birthday. There were 10 adults and 5 children ' and the house and facilities were more than adequate for everyone from 6months old to 70! Only suggestion would be to put a sign at the front of the house!!
