First settled by the Brown family in 1908, Spicers Clovelly Estate’s 22 acres offer a multitude of distractions for every guest. Each season brings a new mood here, where cosy winters, clear autumn skies, fresh spring days and sun soaked summers can be celebrated in their own distinctive way.
Lush gardens and manicured lawns provide the backdrop for boules with friends or an indulgent high tea. Breathe the fresh country air as you stroll through our terraced rose gardens and orchard to the swimming pool, set overlooking the rolling green hills. Alternatively, take a relaxing walk to the gazebo or find the perfect picnic spot overlooking beautiful Lake Baroon. Or, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, within walking distance of the main house there is a two-kilometre rainforest trail with tranquil waterfall and even a resident platypus.
The great outdoors not your cup of tea? Then spend a few hours in Spa Anise day spa or just relax inside and enjoy the French contemporary style with large Bordeaux arm chairs complete with alpaca throws, recliners, French Oak bookcases and sideboards adorning the lounge areas. Or wander out to the terrace where two wrought iron roosters stand guard while you enjoy coffee and Parisian pastries.
A gourmet’s paradise, Spicers Clovelly Estate is also home to a fine dining restaurant called The Long Apron specialising in French-influenced cuisine, old-fashioned service and an innovative menu utilising fresh and simple local ingredients and an extensive wine list.
