Hawklee Country House
Hawklee Country House, set in 35 acres of undisturbed beauty on the banks of
the Lions River, near Nottingham Road, in the heart of the Midlands Meander.
Described by renowned travel writer T P Bulpin as "one of the most amiable
portions of the Natal Midlands", the region remains one of South Africa's most
popular getaway destinations. At Hawklee there are no demands. You are simply
invited to escape the fast lane and unwind at your own pace in a country
setting that remains glorious all year. There are over a hundred inviting
ports of call within easy driving on the Midlands Meander - the
internationally acclaimed arts and crafts route - and a host of natural
attractions and leisure pursuits on the doorstep. With the grandeur of the
majestic Drakensberg mountains dominating the horizon to the west, and the
green and gold of the sub-tropical Indian Ocean coast an easy 90 minutes drive
to the east, Hawklee is a haven of tranquility, set in lush undulating
countryside. Hawklee Country House is a nationally graded Four Star Guesthouse
and holds the AA Highly Recommended award.
The spacious, individualized thatched double rooms are:
Gilbert and Sullivan: Set in the gardens of the country house, this large rondavel is dedicated to the Savoy operas.
Mallard: Named in honour of the famous A4 steam locomotives of the 1930s, the room offers superb river views and features a mezzanine lounge area, complete with a model train set.
Guinea Fowl: A more secluded thatched cottage, with a garden outlook and a balcony overlooking the Lions River.
The Owl and the Pussycat: A spacious cottage set in the gardens, and dominated by an impressive eponymousmural, this is a favorite choice of honeymooners.
The Otter and the Kingfisher cottages: both of which offer private lounge areas and private Jacuzzi spas with unmatched views of the river.
Self-catering cottages: Recently completed, the four thatched self-catering cottages are situated within an easy stroll south of the main country house. Eclectically named Chelsea, Great Western, Copper and iKwela (Zulu for the man who whistles) they boast stunning views of the river rapids and surrounding countryside and guests have the option of self-catering or taking advantage of the menu in the main house.
Honeymoon and anniversary suites: The country setting and solitude of Hawklee Country House is the perfect setting for couples wishing to celebrate a special time - or to rekindle very special memories - in a very special place. Four intimate en-suite luxury suites - including the dedicated Owl and The Pussycat honeymoon cottage - ensure guests experience a most memorable Midlands getaway. Each thatched cottage overlooks the Lions River, and each offers couples the luxury and privacy of their own Jacuzzi.
