My place is close to great views and art and culture. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the light, and the ambiance. My place is good for families (with kids) and small groups.
Our lodge has been designed to make you feel like you are in a home-away-from-home. The large, open plan kitchen with a big central island is perfect for social breakfasts and evening drinks and snacks. On cooler winter evenings, the original indoor fireplace keeps the house snug and warm and is the perfect setting to relax and unwind with a good book and a glass of wine on the sofas.
Summer evenings lend themselves to the South African tradition of "braaing" (or BBQing). Our braai area is undercover to allow you to cook on an open fire come rain or shine and to eat al fresco next to the pool.
Each of the 3 bedrooms has a Super-king, extra length bed that can be converted into twin beds if you require. Each bedroom has a modern, en-suite bathroom.
Orchards Lodge is situated on the 10,000ha Fort Governor's Estate just outside Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape. The Lodge itself is 10 minutes drive from town and is easily accessible by a sedan car (although sports cars and low wheel base vehicles are not advised). We also offer various activities on the Estate that can compliment your stay, so let us know if you would like more information on what we can offer you to make your stay a memorable one.
We are always available should guests need us for anything, however we know how nice it is to be left to your own devices to settle in and relax
