The main attraction of Bramleigh Manor is being off the beaten track, allowing for a truly relaxing and peaceful getaway.
The rooms overlook the indigenous forest that has such a calming and restorative effect on body, mind and soul. Walks through the forest and on the mountains boast exquisite views. The trail leads out onto grassland, with a dramatic scenery change – from damp, dark forest to hot, dry grassland and views stretching across the Drakensberg.
Visit our Birding page for a list of over 200 species of birds found in the indigenous forest and conservancy
Walks and hikes
Marked trails are available within the indigenous forest at Bramleigh. Guests can enjoy the cool, damp forest or the hot, dry grassland with views over the valley.
Enjoy exploring our small scale, diversified farm, spending time watching ‘chicken TV’ and hanging out with the animals on the farm. Farm Tours are available daily for staying guests, at an additional charge.
Swim in the dam, read a book in the sun, laze on the lawn, watch the stars, a glass of wine by the fire…
