Arbuckle House takes pride in its superior accommodation
and warm homely hospitality. Little luxury finishing touches
include your bed being turned down in the evenings with a
chocolate on the pillow or when it is cold, finding a hot
water bottle between the sheets and a glass of sherry beside
the bed to chase away the winter chills! There are facilities
for making tea and coffee not to mention the delicious home-made
biscuits to nibble on!
Self Catering accommodation:
Two charming fully equipped cottages that each sleep two
people, situated in a park-like garden of lawns, roses,
flowering shrubs and fruit trees. There are braai facilities
beneath the huge oak tree where guests can relax and enjoy
the fresh mountain air.
Bed & Breakfast accommodation:
A family suite consisting of a double bedroom, bathroom,
open plan room with two single beds, private lounge with
TV and fireplace. Double doors from the lounge and double
bedroom lead onto your own private sundeck with beautiful
winter views of the snow on the mountains. On a warm summer
evening what could be better than a quiet sundowner as
you watch the sun slip behind the mountains. A double bedroom
with bathroom and private entrance provide additional accommodation
for the perfect family getaway.
Secure undercover parking is available for two cars to ensure
your complete peace of mind during your stay with us.
