Country House offers very comfortable accommodation, put your feet up on the sofas and enjoy the fantastic views over the farm.  We are located in a unique setting, with an abundance of nature all around, from pristine farmland to indigenous forests and amazing mountains, the environment is very relaxing a real home from home feeling, in summer spend lazy days by the pool or take gentle walks through the shaded forest trails,  in winter snuggle up in front of the large log fires with a glass of Packwood.

The house is located above the pool,  the views from here are very inspiring, great ideas have stemmed from this fabulous scenery and a glass of our wine of course.

The sitting room, dining and 2 bedrooms have very high dramatic thatched ceilings.

A terrace leading out from the dining room is the perfect place for an alfresco evening and you can be sure to have plenty of those.  On a sunny day stretch out on the lawns in front of the house, or in the evening do a spot of star gazing, we are right under the milky way no light pollution provides crystal clear sky’s.  In the evenings a  symphony of frogs and crickets, birds and cows mooing in the distance, a bark from a bush buck, and all sorts of discussions from monkeys and baboons as they gather their family’s for the night.
