Thorntree Country House, Oudtshoorn

The Thorntree Country House is an attractive owner-run guest house in Oudtshoorn. It is the perfect base from which to explore the unique attractions of the Garden Route and the Klein Karoo. The town of Oudtshoorn is a lovely spot to break your journey on a Garden Route self drive holiday, we recommend one or two nights here to enjoy the weather and sights.

The Thorntree is situated a short drive outside the town centre, on the route to the Cango Caves, the Swartberg Pass and the circular route to Prince Albert via Meiringspoort. It is also within easy reach of the Cango Ostrich Farm and Cango Wildlife Ranch. The homestead and outbuildings date back to the 1800′s and reflect the typical Klein Karoo architectural style. They have been gracefully restored to their original splendour, and equipped with all modern conveniences.

From the saltwater swimming pool, visitors can enjoy unspoilt views of the picturesque Schoemanshoek Valley and relax in the peaceful natural surroundings.

Thorntree’s dining room reflects the warmth and hospitality, and overlooks the sparkling swimming pool. The picturesque Schoemanshoek Valley provides a breathtaking backdrop. Evening meals are offered and guests can expect exquisite Klein Karoo cuisine including the speciality – a trio of fillet (ostrich/beef/game).

All of Thorntree’s rooms are luxurious, spacious en-suites with air-conditioning and are equipped with TV (with satellite channels), a safe for storing valuables and mini bar.The stylish and modern bathrooms are fitted with elegant twin basins.

For our golfing clients, there are a number of courses in the vicinity including one in Oudtshoorn itself. About 90 minutes drive away is the Fancourt Estate with its three courses, but we would advise against using Oudtshoorn as a base to play Fancourt as it is long return journey.
