Thistledown Country House

Thistledown Country House is set on 20 acres nestling amongst farmlands just below the Karkloof Hills in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. These hills are covered with the second largest tract of indigenous forest in South Africa. You are offered elegant country living in the restored farmhouse. The five double, en suite bedrooms are tastefully decorated in cream and white.

Meals at Thistledown are memorable. Although cosmopolitan in nature, there is a strong Japanese influence, with many of the sauces being specially imported from Japan. Booking for lunches and dinners is essential.*

Thistledown Country House in the tranquil Karkloof Valley is the ideal place to escape from the city.
