Three Trees at Spioenkop

Three Tree Hill Lodge Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Ladysmith Kwazulu Natal

Description

The Lodge has been built on a hillside amongst the striking Aloe Spectabilis and the Paperbark Acacia with views that inspired a guest to write ‘Africa at its finest!’. It overlooks the Spioenkop Game Reserve, where white rhino, giraffe, zebra, eland, kudu, numerous smaller antelope can be seen, perhaps even from your bath! 270 bird species from Cape Vultures and Lanner Falcons to Buff Streaked Chats and Fairy Flycatchers have been recorded in the area.

Accommodation

THE MAIN LOUNGE

The main living area has an open-plan design, with four sets of large double doors leading onto the verandah. The result is a flowing space, where you can relax on a comfy chair, read in the afternoon sun and enjoy convivial dinners. In the winter an open log fire and “Dover” coal stove create a welcoming environment.      
 
THE LODGE VERANDAH

The colonial design with its large verandahs, creates an ideal environment in which to wind down and enjoy nature. Meals are often served outside where one can soak up the views while enjoying the exquisite local cuisine – a fusion of home and modern flavours.
     
THE BEDROOMS

The bedrooms are equipped with all the modern conveniences with heated towel rails and 100% cotton percale linen adding to your comfort. These luxuries do not detract from the colonial design, but merely enhance your turn of the century South African colonial life experience. The beds are ¾ twins but doubles are available on request.
         
BEDROOM VERANDAHS

Each room has its own deck, which offers unimpeded views of the valley and Spionkop. If luck is on your side you might see a rhino or giraffe wandering by.
         
BATHROOMS


Each of the six twin cottages has its own shower and bath from where one can soak up the atmosphere of Spioenkop whilst gazing out over the valley. So whether it is Karen Blixen or General Redvers Buller the choice is yours!
