About The Shire Eco Lodge

As refreshing as it is unique; an extraordinary and truly unique space, captivating with its innovative design and magnificent forest setting.


The chalets rest on the edge of the indigenous Xholora forest in the Amatola Mountains, just a streamís hop from the enchanted home of many rare species of plants, butterflies and birds, including the rare Cape Parrot. From nature-loving adventurous types, to those on business, The Shire promises to soothe, inspire and rejuvenate. We offer either self-catering or B&B accommodation.

Each elegant open-plan chalet contains a stylish en-suite bathroom and fully equipped kitchenette, as well as its own braai / barbeque facilities. Through the striking curved-glass corner window, you can feel a part of the forest. For the more daring kinds, our two river-side chalets have their own open bush showers where you can soak and steam among the trees Keep a look out for the rare samango monkeys curiously watching from the treetops.


If you fancy a hot dinner, we will cook you an organic meal, with all available home-grown ingredients. There are also a number of restaurants close by should you wish to dine out.
