Bilton named the property Claremont House after the Royal family’s summer home in Surrey, England and was living at the property with a household of 14 by late 1830′s. In the 1850’s, Claremont House was one of the most valuable farms in Van Dieman’s land, standing on top of a hill, overlooking it’s 734 acres of land with commanding views of the River Derwent and surrounding mountains.
Over the next century, Claremont House hosted many of the state’s most lavish events for society’s elite and today remains a local landmark. Claremont House is a sprawling Victorian Italianate mansion and is listed by National Trust and on the Register of National Estates.
Bilton’s Restaurant offers a unique Tasmanian centric menu supporting local pastoral farmers, sustainable seafood, market gardeners and suppliers. The constantly evolving menu design will utilise the best in seasonal local produce and draw inspiration from the property’s simple beginnings as pastoral farm with two acre kitchen garden.
