Granny Mouse Country House


Positioned in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands at the gateway to the Drakensberg foothills, Granny Mouse Country House is an appealing country hotel with thatched cottages.

Granny Mouse Country House is situated on the Lions River and bordered by native bushes resulting in an abundance of wildlife and bird species. You could spend the afternoon taking a relaxed stroll down river walk towards the waterfall or laze under the willows on the common.

For a day of exciting activities, you can go on a Karkloof Canopy Tour, travel around the area on horseback, get in-flight view form a hot-air balloon or entertain yourself with an afternoon of shopping in the Midlands. Granny Mouse Country House is a cozy, welcoming retreat perfect for romantic getaways and honeymooners.
