Description

Thistledown Country House is known for its warm hospitality, comfortable accommodation and fine dining. This restored farmhouse was built in 1937 and is situated beneath the pristine indigenous Karkloof forest - the second largest in South Africa .

From the wide, covered, L-shaped veranda you can view some of the amazing birdlife, the rare Samango monkey and bushbuck and duiker which sometimes visit the garden. Thistledown is conveniently close to several of the other features of the Karkloof Valley such as the Karkloof Conopy Tour, the Karkloof Conservancy and the Karkloof Club, which is a well-known polo venue. There are also some spectacular mountain bike trails to be followed. The nearby Ben Vie garden is a must-see when in the area.

The 5 double en-suite bedrooms are comfortable and individually decorated, including many unique pieces. Apart from providing bed and breakfast, other meals - three-course set lunches and dinners - can be arranged. The menu for lunches and dinners can be discussed and should be booked at least 24 hours beforehand.

NOTE: We do not have TV and are not a self-catering facility.
