Kingerfisher Country House is situated on the very edge of Wilderness in a tranquil location, set within large informal gardens. There is ample parking and the bars and restaurants of Wilderness are only a 5 minute drive away.
Our room was charmingly decorated in a traditional country cottage style and had a dual aspect overlooking the garden on one side with a door onto the terrace on the other.
The ensuite shower room was well equipt with dressing gowns and toiletries.
Each night our windows and curtains were closed, our bed turned down and a chocolate left on each pillow.
The large double bed was very comfortable and we slept soundly until awoken by the dawn chorus.
There was a large and comfortable sitting room but due to the brevity of our visit we did not use this space.
The owners, Sue and Phil, could not have been more welcoming and on arrival we were treated to a pot of tea and lots of helpful hints from Sue of where to walk. She also booked restaurants for us (we particularly loved The Girls) for both nights of our stay.
Breakfasting on the terrace of Kingfisher Country House feels like sitting in a treehouse, nestled in the canopy of the trees with an amazing variety of wild birds visiting the feeders placed within reach of the terrace.
We couldn't do justice to the breakfast - sausages, bacon, stuffed mushrooms, eggs, toast and home made marmalde (and marmite available, the only time in my 2 week stay in SA!) and delicious freshly baked homemade muffins.
We were on a bird watching focussed trip and the garden birds that Sue and Phil have encouraged to their terrace provided one of the high spots of our holiday.
