Thatcher’s Rest

SA Bass - - Destinations -

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.
