Overview of Granny Mouse Country House

Situated in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands at the gateway to the Drakensberg foothills, Granny Mouse Country House is a charming country hotel with thatched cottages. Granny Mouse Country House is positioned on the Lions River and surrounded by indigenous bush, resulting in an abundance of wildlife and bird species. You could spend the afternoon taking a leisurely stroll down the River Walk towards the waterfall, or laze under the willows on the Common.

You could even try your hand at fly-fishing just below the rapids in one of the pools. For a day of exciting activities you can go on a Karkloof Canopy Tour, explore the area on horse back, get an aerial view form a hot-air balloon or amuse yourself with an afternoon of shopping in the Midlands. Granny Mouse Country House is a cosy, welcoming retreat ideal for romantic getaways and honeymooners.
