Thatchings Guest House is a four star graded Country Style Guest House situated within a Trout and Game Estate, located 10 km from Nottingham Road in the glorious KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, and just a short 2 km from the N3 (the major route between Johannesburg and Durban).

Thatchings Guest House is part of the delightful Midlands Meander - South Africa`s premier arts and crafts route.
Thatchings Guest House lies in a beautiful setting of ancient pine trees, rolling lawns, azalea shrubs and hydrangeas (stunning when in flower), and all overlooking a picturesque trout dam. The Guest House has title to five hectares of land and is completely surrounded by 300 ha of private game estate. With no fences to restrict them, impala, zebras, wildebeest and duikers frequently come onto the property, which makes for an uplifting experience for guests.

Thatchings offers a variety of en-suite accommodation, all under traditional African thatch, such as a Bridal/Executive suite, Junior suite or Standard luxury rooms.

The rooms are tastefully furnished in country style and provided with goose-down duvets and heaters to ward off winter`s chill, magazines, television and tea/coffee-making facilities to make guests stay comfortable.

What to do:
Thatchings Guest House is a quiet, gentle place in which to ease mind, body and soul. Take a walk in the 300 ha private game estate and you may well see zebras, black wildebeest, eland, red hartebeest, impalas, waterbuck, duiker, reed buck, blesbuck and monkeys, just to name a few of the resident animals. Abundant bird-life ensures that no walk is without seeing something of the fauna of this beautiful region.

Settle into the lounge with its magical view or curl up at a roaring log fire in the guest lounge on those cold or misty days.

We are perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding area with its wealth of experiences. There is easy access to the Drakensberg, Zulu and Boer War battlefields, golf courses and large dams for water-sports just to name a few.
