Red Hill Retreat - unique experience, whimsical and wonderful!
Bookings are open to all families and groups over 30yrs old.
RURAL RETREAT IN A PRIVATE COUNTRY PROPERTY
The property is secluded with established trees and gardens giving you and your family total privacy. The property is also conveniently positioned in central Red Hill, allowing easy access to restaurants, wineries, orchards, olive groves, horse riding, hiking trails, and cafes.
Stay at Cloudland and indulge in rural life to create your own memories with good company, fresh food, and fine wine.
Along a country road in the middle of lush hinterland lies a country house with Red Hill history.
Mr. and Mrs. Jarman visited Red Hill in the early 1900s from Devon, England to find land to plant an apple orchard. They found rich soil in Red Hill and planted their orchards and built their family home in 1921. The home was named Devonia and was the central part of the original Devon Farm estate, the largest apple orchard on the Mornington Peninsula which spread along Mornington Flinders Road from Tedesca restaurant to Ten Minutes by Tractor. These restaurants were once homes to their children. (These restaurants were once homes and cool stores for their children)
Today, the home is called Cloudland and retains its original Craftsman-style architecture and established gardens and has also been lovingly renovated over the years. A large verandah/deck wraps around the house, the tractor shed is converted to a games room, the horse stable is now a cottage and the gardens now include a swimming pool, cubby house/playground, farm paddocks, vegetable/herb garden, rose arbor with rural views, and more.
The house has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a renovated kitchen, a large entertainment space, and two separate living spaces with fireplaces. The house retains its original architectural features including high decorative ceilings, fireplaces, and leadlight windows with plenty of natural light.
Enter the home and you’ll find the “fireside” sitting room with a large open fireplace, library, sofas with windows that look out onto the front garden and fountain.

There are 3 bathrooms – one with a spa tub and shower, another with a claw foot bath and shower, and one ensuite bathroom with a double shower.
Down the hallway is a well-equipped kitchen and bar with an open plan living and dining room, with a table seating for up to 12 guests. This large entertaining space has recycled local timber floorboards, beamed ceilings, fireplace, Smart TV, and windows on every side with views of the gardens and valley.
Leading from the entertainment space to the outdoors is a covered terrace with an outdoor dining setting for 10 guests and a BBQ which overlooks the rear lawn, a garden out to the rural views across the valley.
Cloudland has a bright cream interior and an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture from New York, Asia, and Australia. Some walls house ornate mirrors and the light fixtures include original lamps, Italian Murano glass chandeliers, and sconces along with a chandelier dubbed the Russian Wedding Cake made by a local artist.
The modern touches include ducted and zoned heating and cooling, a renovated kitchen complete with stainless steel workbenches, a marble bar benchtop, and a large open plan living space with sofas and a fireplace.
There is something special to experience everywhere you wander throughout this picturesque property!
The old tractor shed is now a Games Room and houses an antique pool table, games, complete with chandelier and open fireplace plus seating.
The swimming pool (spa section is not operational for guest use) is adjacent to the main house and securely fenced with views of the gardens, lawn, and valley. It can be seen from the kitchen and dining room.
A large arbor with vines and roses for outdoor dining.
There is an old-fashioned cubby house built under the birch trees with a playground.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the entire home and property including gardens, pool, old fashioned cubby house/playground, and games room. Laundry facilities are available and are located at the back of the cottage.
The horse/cow paddocks are out of bounds because cows are frequently grazing in them.
The red barn shed is not for guest use.
Cloudland is seriously close to Red Hill’s finest restaurants, wineries, orchards, galleries, horse riding, walking tracks, and bike trails. And, Red Hill is in the middle of the Mornington Peninsula; easy access to coastal beaches, world-class golf courses, enchanted gardens, and mazes.

Beautiful setting in a great location!Scott
This property provided all of the amenities you could wish for! The large open fire place was fabulous and the games room with the piano and drums, hockey table and outside cubby house was fantastic for the kids. It was wonderful to relax in the sitting room and enjoy the rolling hills and amazing scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed your stay!
