Overview

Thistledown Country House is set on 20 acres nestling amongst farmlands just below the Karkloof Hills in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. These hills are covered with the second largest tract of indigenous forest in South Africa. You are offered elegant country living in the restored farmhouse. The five double en suite bedrooms are tastefully decorated in cream and white. The L-shaped veranda is the perfect place to relax and observe some of the 129 bird species, which have been recorded in the area. The butterflies are also prolific and you may even be lucky enough to spot the region's very own butterfly - the endangered Karkloof Blue. For the physically adventurous, there is plenty to do - if not right on the property, then in the area. Hiking, biking, fly fishing, polo and golfing facilities, to mention few activities, which are within few minutes drive from Thistledown. The increasingly popular Midlands Meander arts and crafts route, where you can call in at the owner's studios - worth exploring. The nearby city of Pietermaritzburg is also worth for visiting e.g Victorian Architecture. Meals at Thistledown are memorable. Although cosmopolitan in nature, there is a strong Japanese influence, with many specially imPorted sauces from Japan. Booking for lunches and dinners is essential, fixed menu (three or four courses) and dining room can accommodate 20 to 30 people. Group tours & functions: Although we can accommodate 10 people in our bedrooms, we can also arrange for larger groups in other establishments in the area. The road to Thistledown cannot accommodate very large buses. Small Functions: We also cater for small weddings and other functions e.g. special birthday parties with 70 guests. Small conferences with 20-30 participants. Rates are R300 (D.BB) / R200 (BB) About five kilometres from Thistledown, opposite Karkloof Country Club there is a quaint chapel - where wedding ceremonies can be held. Your hosts: Norma & Norman Maguire, Donald Knight.
