Aylmerton House is proudly managed by Holiday Rental Specialists - Highlands Holidays
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 partier 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 partier gardens, vegie patches, bocce court, large grassy areas, rose gardens, hedges, trees all shades of Autumn, dam with fountain, playhouse, courtyards - shady and sunny and covered verandas. 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.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aylmerton house. It is so tastefully decorated in every room. The bedding is very comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and it is a fabulous place to stay with a big group. The gardens are particularly gorgeous and so peaceful to sit in. We highly recommend a stay here. What a memorable stay weve had for my Dads Birthday. Thank you"

"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"
