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 Two Bedroomed Family Pool Suite.

Dining

Enjoy bistro style dining at The Conservatory at Hunters or in one of the beautiful seating areas around the Estate, and choose from seasonal light and tasty a la carte menu, offering a fusion of Anglo Italian country fare. For a casual lunch or dinner a la carte style, our award winning Zinzi Restaurant is just a stroll from both Hunters and Tsala. A third option is the exquisite glass-walled dining room at Tsala which offers a la carte for lunch or dinner.
