The Country House
We offer upmarket, comfortable accommodation in the Midlands, either family cottages that sleep four people, or suites and cottages that accommodate a couple. If you take up the breakfast package, you’ll be served our delicious and renowned Glen Ormond breakfast in the privacy of your cottage, or you can opt to self-cater. All the cottages have excellent self-catering facilities, except for the luxurious Red Robin suite, where breakfast is always served. All suites and cottages have well-equipped private verandas with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside, the massive Drakensberg mountains stretched out like a painting in the distance. Strolling around Glen Ormond will reward you with sightings of our remarkable birdlife, including the exotic crowned crane.
Our cottages are serviced daily and kept meticulously clean. We have good security and electric gates, and an intercom system controls access to and from the property. Carport parking is close to the cottages. For hot days, there is a pool in which to cool off. In winter, cosy fireplaces or gas heaters keep you warm. Glen Ormond is conveniently situated close to schools such as Treverton, Michaelhouse, Clifton, and Hilton.
