The Highland Rose (Dullstroom - Mpumalanga)
Memorable stay at Highland Rose Country House
Nestled in the relaxed village of Dullstroom – also famous for being the highest village in South Africa, is a charming accommodation offering, Highland Rose Country House.
Surrounded by a beautiful garden, complete with water fountains and a koi pond frequented by indigenous birds, the Highland Rose offers the perfect environment in which to relax and recharge.
Upon my arrival, I was greeted by Angela, the manageress, who welcomed me with enthusiasm and a complimentary glass of wine. After visiting their beautiful rose garden, I understood where the establishment got its name.
The garden and pond proved to be the perfect backdrop for the main house, with its Oregon pine beams, ceilings and exquisite stained-glass windows. I could not wait to see my suite.
There are four unique cottages to choose from and a spacious family suite when travelling with the kids. I found the bedrooms spacious and individually furnished. For your added peace of mind, each cottage has its own secured parking.
All rooms have their own neat bathrooms, DSTV, free Wi-Fi, heating, electric blankets, and a tray with facilities for making tea and coffee.
For a unique Highveld dining experience, guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast and dinner served in the Country House Dining Room. I had their supper and it was amazing. I had a very light, but tasty vegetable soup with warm homemade corn bread, which was extremely nice. My main meal consisted of Trout, vegetables and a salad, which was absolutely delicious. To top it all off, my dessert was a mouth-watering malva pudding with ice cream – yummy!
The following morning, I had a breakfast of brewed coffee, fresh orange juice, granola, yoghurt, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs and bacon. Because I am wheat intolerant, Highland Rose went the extra mile to make me flapjacks from egg and banana, which was amazing and delicious!
Is the stress of the day getting you down? The Highland Rose is the home of the Serenity Spa where you can feel your cares fly away as you enjoy a relaxing massage or facial by one of their therapists.
The Highlands Rose Serenity Spa offers a variety of treatments ranging from an assortment of massage treatments to facials, manicures and pedicures as well as the ever popular combo treatments. Half day and full day packages are also available for those, who truly wish to spoil themselves.
There is also plenty to do in the area during your stay. Dullstroom is arguably South Africa’s premier fly-fishing region at its crystal clear dams and rivers. You can also enjoy hiking, mountain-biking and an array of other adventure sports like golfing nearby.
With its comfortable facilities and excellent service, it is no wonder the Highland Rose is among the best establishments in Dullstroom. It was an absolutely pleasurable and relaxing place to stay at and I will definitely be coming back.
