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.
