Luxurious cottage suites in a cosy Garden Route manor house

Stay in a thatched manor house with luxurious rooms that have everything from private patios to lush gardens. Positioned between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, this is the ideal Garden Route stay for both adventure and relaxation. Sunbathe on a lounger next to a large pool or get cosy in a relaxation area adorned with antique furniture and a fireplace. Activities in the surrounding area include Garden Route favourites like whale watching, mountain biking, and hiking. Hunter’s Country House gives back by supporting the Greenhill Educare Centre, a preschool that prepares young children from impoverished backgrounds to enter Grade 1 at the local primary schools.

Best time to go to Garden Route

Good
Acceptable
The best time to visit this region is in the warmer months of September to April. The Garden Route is rainy throughout the year and is a popular summer destination that can get busy over the Christmas holidays. You will soon understand why, as you feel the warm rays while kloofing, abseiling and paragliding or simply taking a dip in the azure Indian Ocean. The months of June to August are colder but will provide opportunities for whale watching (peaking in September) with more windless days to enjoy.
