Staying at the kilnhouses is a unique experience where contemporary luxury and design is combined with the stunning beauty of the Ovens Valley high country landscape in Porepunkah near Bright in north east Victoria. Three houses – Cavedon’s Kilnhouse, Chinaman’s Kilnhouse and The Sorting Shed – are each in a separate part of a working angus cattle stud. All of the houses fit naturally within the local rural environment and have spectacular views of Mount Buffalo, Feathertop and Bogong, with grape vines and sleek black angus cattle in the foreground.
The kilnhouses now offer a further contemporary interpretation of the region’s tourist offerings – a pair of stylish ’Chappelli’ bicycles for each house. The bikes represent stripped back simplicity and great design – a perfect match for the kilnhouses.
As a year round destination, the north east is hard to beat. Winter skiing, summer swimming and year-round bike riding, walking, visiting wineries, and relaxing spas nearby. The kilnhouses are also a beautiful and private setting for boutique corporate retreats, team building and conferences.
There is a broad range of local restaurants and cafes to be enjoyed year round in the north east. At the kilnhouses, we offer you the opportunity to participate in very special Italian cooking classes with leading chef Patrizia Simone. We are also pleased to be able to offer our very own wine produced from the Kilnhouse vineyard by local winemaker Jo Marsh.
Don’t just take our word for it – the elegant and sophisticated Kilnhouses have been praised on television, in books, magazines, newspapers and online. News and reviews can be found in our Media section.
