Cleburne Homestead has a lovely old world charm and is very homely with its resident alpaccas, hungarian sheepdogs and cheeky cat. The only thing that needs improvement is the bed which was not very comfortable. However, it is a lovely spot and the hosts are very friendly and helpful!

Our hosts were very warm and welcoming and made our stay very memorable. Our cottage setting was breathtaking with rolling hills and a garden that was a feast for the eyes. Met the cat, 3 peacock and llamas in the grounds. Delicately 5 star all round.

David and Penelope are very friendly & interesting hosts. They introduced all the guests at breakfast each morning with everyone sitting around the grand dining table in front of the open fire engaging in conversation. A good selection of food for breakfast, David keeps the coffee & tea coming & Penelope is very obliging in providing special dietary items for guests if you request it. Our first day was a quiet one for them so Penelope made an omelette for breakfast and it was amazing. The bed was so comfortable and little traffic at night made for a very sound sleep. Although there was the occasional squawk from one of the peacocks which I found disturbing but we loved them, the dogs & Llamas. We enjoyed our time there so much that we stayed an extra night. The buildings and grounds are magnificent and the view directly from our door across Hobart to Mt Wellington was amazing. I definitely recommend you stay here.

Gorgeous accommodation with warm hospitality

I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Cleburne. The facilities were beautiful and well maintained. And the hosts, David and Penelope, were outstanding in their warmth and hospitality towards the guests. Breakfast with the other guests in the dining room was a special way to start the day. Will definitely look forward to coming back again.
