Excellent rates for long stays

Putting the “treat” into Retreat, put your feet up and enjoy the fantastic vistas over the estate.  With an abundance of birdlife and nature all around, from farmland and pristine indigenous forests to amazing mountains, the accommodation 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.

Swimming pool at Packwood wine estate

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 so there is no light pollution providing crystal clear skies.  In the evenings listen to a symphony of frogs , crickets, birds and even cows mooing in the distance. You will often hear a bark from a bush buck and all sorts of discussions from monkeys and baboons as they gather their family’s together for the night.

We can provide a light clean Mon – Fri excluding public holidays and weekends for a nominal fee of R50 per hour. Please book ahead of schedule if you are staying in high season.

As a sustainable agricultural farming enterprise we encourage a green room policy. Towels are changed every few days, outdoor dryers are provided to dry wet towels and linen is changed once a week.
