Country House Gallery

Putting the treat into Retreat our Country House offers very comfortable accommodation, put your feet up and enjoy the fantastic vistas over the estate.  We are located in a unique setting, with an abundance of birdlife and nature all around, from manicured farmland to pristine indigenous forests and amazing mountains, the environment provides a very relaxing home from home feeling, spend lazy summer days by the pool,  gentle walks through the shaded forest trails, or snuggle up in winter in front of the large log fires with a glass of Packwood.

The views are serene from the Country House overlooking the pool,  great ideas have been inspired from this view and a glass of our wine has helped 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.  Stretch out on the lawns in front of the house, and don’t forget 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.
