This classic country house between Plettenberg Bay and Nature’s Valley is surrounded by rolling fields with horses, and plays host to regular polo matches over the summer. The atmosphere is down to earth and welcoming and its twelve rooms are enormous; traditionally decorated with antiques and oil paintings. It is very child-friendly, with play-rooms, playground, kid’s pools and of course pony rides.
Mountain biking, quad biking and horse riding are popular activities on offer on the property, and almost next door are the excellent Monkeyland and Birds of Eden attractions, which are fabulous for adults and children alike.
There are two restaurants on-site, one of which, Katarina’s is a more relaxed bistro style, and staff are only too happy to assist with restaurants outside the property.
With Plettenberg Bay and Nature’s Valley both just short drives away, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to beach options, and Kurland provides boogie boards and buckets and spades for you to use. There is a divine spa, and gym as well.
Perfect if you enjoy country manor living, and would like to step back into something of a bygone era in a traditional, relaxing setting.
The woodlands, rocky hills and waterways of this region make it a must-do drive for visitors. There are any number of charming villages to stop off at and sample the local produce. See especially the Wilderness National Parks Lake District and the lagoons around Knysna.
