Hunter's Country House


A delightful family-owned retreat which is also a Relais & Chateaux member due to its superb wine cellar and great food.

Previously a winner of South Africa’s best hotel, the estate’s suites and cottages are all individually designed and decorated and provide every comfort possible. Ideal for families as there is a special children-only recreation area, a child-minding service & kiddies menu, so the grown-ups can relax in the grounds, be pampered with a massage or explore the coast & the Tsitsikamma Mountains and not worry.


Our Thoughts

Set amidst a forest 10 minutes drive outside Plettenberg Bay, this hotel has been almost purpose-built for families. Family suites with private pools, a children’s recreation area, baby-sitting and kiddies menus are all on offer, although a beautiful wedding chapel can also play host to those wanting to get hitched.

  • Outdoor swimming pool
  • Children’s play area

Breakfasts are served in the sunny glass conservatory and offer a selection of tasty treats to start the day. Light lunches are served in the dining room or on the lawns. The outdoor boma with its comfortable couches and fireplace invites you to enjoy a high tea or a glass of bubbly as the sun sets over the gardens.

Guests can also dine at Zinzi, located at the nearby Tsala Treetops Lodge.

The 19 luxurious suites at Hunter's Country House are all individually designed and decorated with their own distinctive atmosphere. All have private patios and gardens, while certain suites have their own splash pools.

  • Ocean Safaris
  • Monkeyland & Birds of Eden project
  • Tsitsikamma Forest & Storms River Mouth
  • Treetop canopy tours

Hunter's Country House is the perfect family getaway. It is a fun, secure place for children of all ages to play and have a holiday where even the youngest of guests is pampered.

For the younger children Cubs Corner is a designated area with a small paddling pool, climbing frames, sand pit and the Cubhouse, where they can watch videos, paint, draw and play games. Cubs Corner caters for children 0-8 years. Should parents wish to have their children looked after at Cubs Corner or require baby sitting facilities this can be pre-arranged prior to their arrival.

For the older children the Teen Scene area offers them a chill lounge to escape to, play darts, pool, watch DVD’s and relax.
