About Tarn Country House

The 4-Star Tarn Country House is situated within the Whiskey Creek Nature Reserve, in the heart of the Garden Route. This is where the Tsitsikamma and Outeniqua Mountains overlap and meet the Indian Ocean. You can find us between Plettenberg Bay and Natures Valley, a few short kilometres from the spectacular coastline and sandy beaches.

We offer a choice of eight charmingly decorated and spacious bedrooms. We have both twin bedded or double rooms. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower, and it’s own private entrance. Delicious breakfasts, either English or Continental, are served on the patio overlooking the sprawling gardens or inside next to a cosy fireplace.

We are happy to make your dinner reservations at any restaurant in and around Plettenberg Bay. We offer a shuttle service for those guests who do not feel inclined to drive to a restaurant in the evening.

We had a delightful stay in a beautiful country setting in the Crags, overlooking the hills and forests. The well kept garden and spacious rolling lawns, as well as the bird songs, complement the serenity of the surroundings. Relaxing on loungers at the poolside in the warm afternoon sun was therapeutic. The sunsets were spectacular!But even more impressive was the attention paid to us by our hostess, Erica, who made sure we were comfortable and well fed! Dinner and breakfast, cooked by her with obviously fresh ingredients and herbs from the garden,  were delicious and well presented. Meals...

Very stylish and tasteful rooms with attention to detail. Great bathtub to relax as a couple. Well managed in a beautiful and quiet location. Warm welcome (in German), great food for dinner. Standard breakfast buffet. Also nice for families with kids. Extremely helpful staff.

The food was consistently excellent - even down to the marmalade at breakfast! The service was great, and the room was very comfortable. There's a nice walk you can take from the grounds, down into a valley behind the property to a river which is great. My only disappointment was that the busy N2 is really quite close by, and you can hear the traffic quite clearly from the grounds. It's not a big deal, but it's not quite the rural ideal it could be if it were a couple of miles off the main highway.
