Thatcher’s Rest is a delightfully secluded self-catering cottage situated on a working farm and surrounded by the serene splendour of the beautiful and tranquil hills of the Biggarsberg mountain range.
Located between Ladysmith and Newcastle in Northern KwaZulu-Natal, this totally unique, double story thatched roof cottage is set on stilts within one of the six dams on the farm and is accessed from the shore by a wooden walkway.
The cottage can comfortably accommodate up to seven people and consists of three beautifully furnished bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The main bedroom, situated on the upper level has its own private balcony with views across the dam and surrounding farmland.
The cottage is equipped with all cutlery, crockery and linen (including towels but please bring your own swimming towels should you require.)
There is a very silent generator which supplies electricity to all appliances and plug points throughout the cottage. The open plan kitchen has a gas fridge and stove for convenience which reduces the frequent need for the generator.
A lovely large enclosed veranda leads off the kitchen and lounge area ensuring that the ‘cooks’ don’t miss out on all the fun, frivolity and fellowship at the large dinner table and outdoor lounge area. There is a deluxe gas braai unit available on the outdoor deck as well as a traditional wood braai available by the entertainment area on shore beneath the beautiful willow tree.
There is a maid service available at an additional nominal charge should you require and undercover parking for two vehicles.
Things to do include fishing, hiking trails, relaxing, horse riding, bird watching and the big five is right on their door step in the Nambiti Conservancy.
The dam, on which the cottage is situated, is stocked with both bass and trout therefore offering all seasons fishing opportunities.
