Kilmuir is an historic sheep and cattle property. Eighty acres was purchased at the first auction of Mansfield farmland on June 7, 1854, for one pound per acre. Over the following 130 years purchase of adjoining land saw the property grow to over 1,000 acres.

A considerable workforce was employed to work on the farm. Many of the men and some of their families lived at Kilmuir in workers' cottages. Kilmuir Country Retreat was originally the shearers' quarters.

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments to be made to overseas bank accounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gem! What an awesome place! We had 4 families with kids who were older teenage/ early twenties and there was something for everyone, with enough space for everyone to have a great weekend. The renovated shearers’ quarters still retain their charm, but were also very comfortable. The separate bedrooms were cosy, each opening onto the front or back veranda. Small heaters in each room were more than enough to take the edge off the crisp Mansfield mornings. The big kitchen was ideal for our group of 16 and the lounge room was perfect to sit by the fire. We had good weather, so eating in the spacious outdoor living area or sitting on the veranda in the afternoon was a treat. Erica was the perfect host. She showed us around the farm, which was full of history, including the old shearing shed, which is still in use. Some of our group were bush walkers, so Erica provided us with lots of local knowledge regarding walks. She even went into the tourist centre herself one day to pick up more information for us! A great holiday venue - highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect place for family retreat!! Our extended family stay at Kilmuir was excellent. It accommodated our four families easily with warm comfortable bedding and great kitchen facilities. The outdoor deck, table and bbq area are a highlight. Kids had an awesome time exploring the gardens. Wonderful warm hospitality from Erica who ensures you have everything you need. Very likely to become an annual tradition for our families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent !! Fantastic place to stay, very relaxing and quite area esp the outside dinning area with a beautiful nature looking. No neighbours around the house which gives more confident to don't worry about the noise if you stay late at night. The house was very clean and neat. Great kitchen equipment, everything you need is there plus the BBQ equipment. In short, it is amazing to stay at Kilmuir. Thanks to Erica who was very lovely and accommodating host !
