Upmarket serviced accommodation at a 'country' estate in the heart of Dullstroom, within easy walking distance of all amenities (restaurants, shops, etc.). There are two small trout dams on the property, for catch-and-release fishing, and a view out over the Highveld plateau. The entirety of the house and grounds are available to guests. Our house was the show unit for the development. It has: three bedrooms, with two en suite; a double volume lounge and dining room with fireplace; and a kitchen with probably everything you would have at home, and more. When I first saw the house, the big attractions were the view, the double volume lounge, and the huge upstairs bedroom. All this, set in a town famed for its trout fishing and nature. We say it is 'upmarket', but my wife thinks it is...Upmarket serviced accommodation at a 'country' estate in the heart of Dullstroom, within easy walking distance of all amenities (restaurants, shops, etc.).

One block away from the main street with all its activities, we really enjoyed our stay at Connemara Close Country Estate. It was a great break away from the city! Attention to detail in the house.

Thanks for the review. The bad weather was a concern, as I know those roads driving in fog and rain. We hope that you have the opportunity to visit us again.
