About Hunters Country House

Hunter’s Country House is an exclusive family-owned retreat set in the heart of the magnificent Garden Route of the Western Cape.

The property is situated 10 km west of South Africa's premier retort town of Plettenberg Bay with its endless golden beaches, and 20 km east of the lagoon town of Knysna. The hotel is surrounded by rich indigenous forests and it is framed by the majestic Tsitsikamma Mountains.

The gracious, original homestead is reminiscent of the traditional country architecture of the region. In the extensive gardens surrounding the Manor House are 23 luxurious guest suites, each one individually decorated and designed for the absolute comfort and privacy that one would expect from a Relais and Chateaux property. All children are welcome and we offer a delightful Cub's Corner child care and play area.

Spa: Pamper treatments can be arranged on request in the guests suites.

Wedding Venues: Small intimate weddings held in our chapel in the Forest accommodating up to 55 guests followed by a tailor made lunch or dinner or if it is a smaller affair drinks and canapés in the manicured gardens on the Hunter’s Estate.

Family friendly: Cubs Corner a designated play area for children up to 6 years, babysitting facilities on request. Teen Scene a designated area for teenagers.

Hotel is very pretty. Food is outstanding. Service is intense. Gardens are magical. Rooms are very high quality and spacious. Weather was poor during our stay however the grounds appear to encourage lazing around with good wine and great food.
