Dunkeld Country Estate is a beautiful trout-and-game resort situated on over 1000 hectares only 3.7Kms from the popular village of Dullstroom. The area, renowned for its sub-alpine climate, high altitude and fly fishing waters, is favoured by city dwellers wanting to relax in the country and enjoy fresh air and panoramic views only 2.5 Hours from Johannesburg. The Resort consists of a central Lodge which offers 13 spacious Hotel rooms dotted around a fishing dam and near the main restaurant/ reception area. Our self-catering accommodation consists of 4 private self contained family suites and an additional 20 self-contained one bedroom chalets. Most of our rooms have an open fireplace to keep warm on those cold, and most popular, misty days. The heritage of the estate has been preserved with the conversion of the old farmhouse into a restaurant, which is more than a hundred years old. Our new reception, lounge and jazz bar was opened in August 2014 and compliments our banqueting facilities which cater to weddings, functions and conferences. We have a stone chapel, tea garden and can cater to your every need. Dunkeld is well known for its forest weddings. The resort boasts many well-stocked dams filled with Brown, Rainbow and Golden Trout, offering fly-fishing enthusiasts from novice to experienced the enjoyment of quality angling time in pursuit of that perfect catch. We are also passionate about introducing children to the art of fly fishing and one of our on-site guides holds a demo and teaching session every weekend. The estate also offers a host of family and child orientated activities. Our horse out rides are very popular as is our kiddies activity program. We are introducing new and fun activities every week. The Estate is located on the famous Panorama Route which takes visitors from Dullstroom all the way through remarkable landscapes to the Blyde River Canyon, Echo Caves and Pilgrims Rest. Dunkeld is also the perfect rest stop on the way to the Kruger National Park and the private reserves located in the Timbavati and Sabi Sands Reserves.

We enjoyed the accommodation and atmosphere. The staff is professional and friendly. The wedding ceremony was set in a beautiful location in the woods. One can really relax here for a week. The security was good.

My husband and I spent a week at the Dunkeld self catering units, booked with our RCI points. The unit was very basic. It was big enough but the couch/sleeper couch was old and sagged to the middle. The mattress was rather old and should be replaced, the sides are broken from

Top class accommodation in the Equestrian block where we stayed. Close enough to Dullstroom to pop in for coffee and a pancake. Quiet, spacious setting with beautiful trees and plenty of dams for fishing. Highly recommended.

I booked a chalet do I have to pay every time I go to the spa
Hi Nina945, Thank you for your question. Our Spa is available to all our guests on the estate. You don't have to pay to access the spa but you do have to pay for any of the treatments. These range from manicures and pedicures to massages and facials. To avoid disappointment please book your treatment at reception when you arrive. We wish you an enjoyable stay. The Dunkeld Team.
