About Thistledown Country House

Thistledown Country House offers accommodation beneath the Klarkloof indigenous forest and is one and a half hours from Durban and four and a half hours from Johannesburg. The restored farmhouse was built in 1937 and accommodates up to ten guests.

Accommodation

Thistledown Country House has five double en-suite guest house bedrooms that are tastefully decorated in cream and white and fitted with comfortable furnishings for a memorable and restful stay.

One of these rooms has its own fireplace and is often specially requested during the bracingly crisp winter months. The en-suite bathroom which accompanies this particular bedroom features a bath which has been restored, having originally come from the Imperial Hotel in Pietermaritzburg, and which at one time was used by the Prince of Wales during his visit there. Most of the bathrooms feature Andrew Walford wash basins.

Facilities

During the winter months, a log-fire is lit in the lounge and it is a welcome refuge from the bracingly cold weather. From the L-shaped veranda, guests can enjoy the amazing bird life. Bushbuck and duiker sometimes visit the garden.

Breakfast and Dining

A buffet breakfast is included in the rates and served every morning. Lunches and dinners can be arranged and must be booked 24 hours beforehand.

Attractions

Thistledown Country House is conveniently close to several of the other features of the Karkloof Valley such as 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.
