We recently spent a weekend at Dunkeld Country Estate in Dullstroom and it was amazing. Such a beautiful property! As you arrive through the gates, you drive through a pine forest which is really breathtaking. The service of the staff stood out for me, they were always friendly, willing to do anything to keep the guests happy and they truly were the stars of the show. We stayed in the KingFisher unit which is right next to one of the trout dams. What a brilliant place to stay and you can literally walk out of the front door a few paces and fly fish. It really is a beautiful place and very tranquil. At night we were having a braai outside and a group of wild horses that roam the estate came past our braai and were grazing just next to us, really was an amazing estate!! Great job to Management at Dunkeld for well trained staff, a clean estate and all round beauty of the estate.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
