Lowestoffe Country Lodge is a self-catering getaway set against the backdrop of the Elandsberg Mountains with expansive grasslands, rocky ridges and a gently meandering river. This pristine setting, in The Amphitheatre of the Hogsback area, offers the ideal opportunity for family holidays and weekend getaways.
Lowestoffe Country Lodge is situated on 5500 hectares of holistically managed land, comprising four adjoining farms. The vast open spaces and diverse topography lends itself to outdoor activities, and among the many we specialize in fly fishing including trout, bass and yellowfish, horse trail rides, mountain biking and hiking. The picturesque Klipplaat River traverses the farm for 18 km providing numerous scenic spots to enjoy a picnic or deep water pools from which to cast a line for yellowfish.
Lowestoffe Country Lodge offers accommodation in 3 spacious houses, epitomising comfortable farm accommodation at its best. Each lodge is located on a separate farm, thus providing a private yet safe holiday experience. Each lodge has expansive views of the surrounding pastures and mountains, and are surrounded by gardens with large lawns. The décor is tasteful and simple, providing a homely and comfortable experience. As the nights can be rather chilly, especially in autumn and winter, there is the added luxury of a duck-down duvet and an electric blanket on each bed.
The weather is variable with snow recorded in all 12 months of the year. The nights tend to be chilly, even in the summer months therefore the fireplaces in the living areas create a cosy ambience, a perfect place to snuggle up with a glass of wine or a good book and that slab of chocolate. The change of seasons is dramatic and a feast for the eyes. The autumn landscape is truly breathtaking with myriad shades of gold, amber and rust while spring is a riot of greens and blossoms. Summer settles into deep hues of emerald while the winter scenery is stark with the perpetual promise of waking to a world turned white overnight.
Whether the intent of your stay is to relax, recharge and refocus, or to actively engage in these stunning surrounds, you will find yourself returning time and time again to Lowestoffe Country Lodge.
