About Armagh Country Lodge & Spa

Established and custom built in 1994, Armagh Country Lodge & Spa, a 4 star TGCSA Guest Lodge, a Portfolio Retreats Collection and AA Superior Accommodation property, is situated in 2 acres of pristine fynbos surrounded by indigenous forests with the Tsitsikamma Mountain range spreading picturesquely in front.


Accommodation in the Guest Lodge includes 5 en suite rooms, with their own entrances and patios, and, direct access to the ecological wonderland surrounding the Guest Lodge. Upstairs in the lodge are two large rooms also en suite, a Guest lounge with DSTV and Staff Quarters.

Two separate honeymoon hideaways (or executive stress busting) Cottages are set in total privacy in their own gardens further adding to the accommodation choices for the discerning Guest.

The Spa

The Spa is also set in its own private gardens with spectacular mountain views. Indulge in an outdoor shower and enjoy a selection of soothing treatments and therapies while listening to the birdsong. A truly holistic experience!


Rafters Restaurant became a necessity in 1996 as so many guests just did not want to go anywhere after their arrival at The Armagh. What began as an in house country cooking experience around a double sided log fire has evolved into an internationally renowned venue, which has been discussed as far afield as Machu Picchu in Peru and the top of Table Mountain in our own beloved Cape Town!

The cuisine is real South African food with a hint of the Cape Malay influences of the past. 22 couverts on the newly added Fynbos Terrace extended the capacity to 52, meaning the surrounding Guest House occupants can also come to partake in dishes such as good old Lamb Bredie, the ubiquitous Bobotie (in this instance made with healthy lean Ostrich meat!).

Other favourites served at Rafters are slow cooked Karoo lamb chops and Venison pie to name a few; all accompanied by village grown organic, freshly picked, salads and vegetables.

Desserts are the all time favourite Cape brandy tart, homemade ice cream and yummy chocolate brownies and ye, the brownies are as good as those found in the USA! Follow that with local cheeses from the famous Fynboshoek Farm and preserved green figs from Robertson. The wine list is comprehensive, and often praised, featuring the less stylish, but so excellent, hand selected wines from the Robertson, Bonnievale and Montagu region.

Activities and Attractions

Hiking opportunities abound in this beautiful area. Tsitsikamma National Park is right next door, Treetop Canopy Tours and Blackwater Tubing are right in the village. Bicycle hire, horse riding, guided hikes and bird watching are all on offer. Back to the Armagh for a swim in the salt water pool and sundowners before dinner!
