We loved our Easter visit to Cleburne Homestead. Warm and welcoming hosts and a very comfortable room. The breakfasts were wonderful and the children were thrilled to meet their first Alpacas. I'll go back!

We were pleased to find this cosy place to stay so close to Hobart and the incredible MONA. Host Penelope and David made us feel Iggy at home and provided a very generous and nourishing breakfast that kept us going all at long.

We stayed here for one night before my mum's birthday as it was close to the airport (before flying out with Par Avion) I loved the history around the homestead and the fresh flowers, artwork and books provided for your enjoyment.

Hi Clair, thank you for such a lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. The peacocks certainly seem to like performing for guests and we are glad you appreciated their efforts. Hope the Par Avion flight was exciting! We would love to see you again at some future time. Regards, Penelope and David.

Lovely place to stay. Penelope and David are excellent hosts in a delightful rustic setting only 15 mins from Hobart. Breakfast each morning was enough to last the day. Peacocks add an extra dimension. All in all good value for money

Unfortunately we only got to stay at Cleburne Homestead for the one night - we wish we had discovered it earlier and stayed longer From the moment we arrived, we knew this place was special.

I recently booked two nights accommodation at Clebourne Homestead to attend a music concert in Hobart. On a tight budget, I booked the Stable Room, affordable and intriguing. On arrival we were greeted by Penelope who was friendly and welcoming, taking us to this very quaint little room. It has a beautiful feel to it, nice and intimate and the...

This is a historic and unique property run by warm and vivacious hosts Penelope and David. We stayed in the Stables room and were welcome to a warm room with modern bathroom. On arrival, the gates were closed and it would have been useful to have a sign, or to be prenotified on how to open the gates. At the...

Hi. Thank you for this thoughtful review of Cleburne. It’s terrific to know that you found the property, the breakfasts and the conversations enjoyable and it’s instructive to know your concerns. We do sometimes have the entry gates closed to allow the Alpacas to graze freely. We will work harder to have them open when guests are due. We checked...

Loved my stay here - the house is an old homestead (with all the normal quirks and creaks). Was great to stay outside Hobart - good base for trips north of Hobart and very close to MONA. Rooms were warm and cosy - very important given it was freezing outside. Lovely continental breakfast in the Homestead's dining room.
