Hunter’s Country House, just 10 km from Plettenberg Bay and 22 km from Knysna, is owned and managed by the Hunter family. This country house hotel is an oasis of tranquillity and a romantic retreat. Set in beautiful gardens that overlook the indigenous forest. The original homestead is full of character and charm, luxuriously furnished with fine antiques and sumptuous fabrics. And is set within a 90 acre forested estate, with two marked walking trails.
Whilst staying at Hunter’s one can make use of the onsite bicycles to take a slow meander around the estate taking in the beautiful garden settings, getting fresh air and exercise. You can pre-order a picnic to enjoy under a beautiful old tree relaxing. Or simply enjoying being in nature and reading a book. There is a large pool with loungers to relax on. A lounge and library with a fireplace with complimentary Wi-Fi access. On request there is in-room pamper treatments. And Cubs Corner – a designated play area for children up to 6 years & babysitting facilities (on request).
Within the beautiful gardens of Hunter’s Country House are 27 luxurious thatched suites. Each one individually decorated and designed for comfort and privacy. The Orchard and Garden suites have open fireplaces, delightful bathrooms, and private patios and are furnished with antiques restored on the estate. Premier suites offer even greater comfort. The Classic suites, each with private plunge pool, separate lounge-dining room, and indoor-outdoor showers, are a real treat. The Forest Suite is unashamedly indulgent, with a separate sitting room with hi-fi system & DVD, dining room, butler’s kitchen and private plunge pool.
Families at Hunter’s
Hunter’s Country House is known for its child-friendliness. Children have their own dedicated games & activity room, shallow pool, lawn area, sandpit and there are organised activities on offer. There are various options for family accommodation depending on your budget.
The Orchard rooms can be taken as inter-leading rooms. There’s one Garden cottage which has a second smaller children’s room, simply furnished with twin beds and a shower room en suite. There are two bedroom family suites which are two linked garden suites, thus the children’s room is of the same size as the parents room. This is usually kept as a sitting room during the day and converted into the children’s room in the early evening. It can sleep up to three children. Finally, if your budget allows, you can take the Forest Suite which has an inter-leading door to one of the Premier Suites which allows parents to sleep in the Forest Suite and three children in the Premier suite.
