The Lourie Suite is attached to the manor house, offering double volume thatch ceilings, en suite bathroom with shower and Victorian style bathtub, and double basin. This room has exquisite views over the forest and garden, with doors opening onto the expansive manor house deck – ideal for birdwatching! Easy access to the communal lounge, dining and braai areas.
Our accommodation supports sustainable tourism, without minimising on comfort. Experience guilt-free, comfortable country accommodation, powered by the sun complete with electric blankets, energy efficient lighting and appliances, beneath the shelter of thatch insulation. Water is supplied from a forest stream, filtered and ready to drink, cool, straight from the tap. Natural cleaning products provide a fresh fragrance. Visit our chickens and geese who happily gobble any organic waste and provide rich fertiliser for our market vegetables in return.
Tucked away on a secluded hillside provides an ideal opportunity for a quiet, country getaway with no TV or cellphone signal. Although there is free high speed WiFi offered, we encourage you to disconnect and enjoy a ‘tech detox’. Enjoy soul-restoring walks through the indigenous forest, below age-old Yellowwood trees, the shy Samango monkeys swinging above, abundant birdlife and calming streams. Walking trails through the grassland provide extensive views over the valley and mountains, possibly spotting a reedbuck, oribi and duiker. Or simply curl up with a book next to a wood burning stove, relax on the patio and soak up the fresh country air, be soothed by nature. Books, board games, sun lounge and braai area within the manor house.
