The Kilns

Luxury Accommodation Bright Victoria

Accommodation – Modern, architect-designed houses

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 – Cavedons 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.

Bikes at the Kilnhouses

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.
