Welcome to Claremont House.
Originally constructed c1830 and named after Princess Charlotte’s country house in Surrey, England, Claremont House after years of meticulous restoration is now open to the public for luxury heritage accommodation.
Claremont House tours and afternoon tea will continue to operate through June on the following Sundays. Tours operate between 2-5pm. Claremont House will be closed from July 11 through to August 15 for ongoing renovations and works to see through the opening on Bilton’s Restaurant.
June 5 – fully booked
I would like to thank all of our tour guests for such wonderful responses to our heritage tours including the great feedback we have received for the restoration work to date. It has been a work in progress for the past eight and a half years and with many more to come. It is extremely motivational to hear and read the great feedback we get for what we are doing. Thank you so much and please know how grateful we are for all of your support.
If anyone has any of the old tea cups/ saucers/ plates (sets), we would be very grateful for any donations. Please call me on 6249 8818 and we would be very happy to pick them up or alternatively they can be dropped off at the house.
Three rooms within Claremont House are now available. The Lady Clark, Maid’s and Tower room are available for short and medium term accommodation. The Tower room is now complete with a sauna and spa within the original tower c1890. Please contact me on 6249 8818 to arrange bookings.
We have been successful in our application for Bilton’s Restaurant soon to open. Bilton’s will operate within the orginal rooms of the Georgian property, constructed c1830 by Henry Bilton. Bilton’s will operate daily from 9.30am serving morning tea, light lunches and high tea.
Heritage tours of the house will soon be available weekly on Sundays from 2pm complimented by High Tea. The tours cover the 198 year history of the property and house, taking in the five acre Heritage listed gardens, thirty three rooms of the main house and four storey ‘Widow’s Walk’. The tour takes you on an evolutionary journey showing off the meticulously restored main rooms and existing fabric from the 1830′s Georgian home through to the derelict and vandalised rooms left after public occupation.
An Afternoon tea buffet including house made scones served with raspberry jam and cream, spiced apple and cinnamon tea cakes, home made biscuits, a selection of savoury sandwiches and seasonal fruit platter. Local fresh juice, coffee and a choice of teas will be available throughout the afternoon.
Tour bookings are essential and can be made by calling 6249 8818 or alternatively emailing email@example.com
