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 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.

"Fantastic property. Comfortable, warm and inviting."

Reinaldo, June 2016

"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 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!"
