Melton Manor

8 Guests - 4 Beds - 4 Bathrooms - Pool 

With sweeping views of the Afromontane Forests, Melton Manor at Kwandwe is a contemporary frontier farmhouse with a modern touch. This sole-use safari villa, where the smallest detail of your stay is planned according to your specific wishes, is perfect for family holidays, parties or groups of friends.

The welcoming villa with its four en-suite bedrooms are cleverly designed around the central courtyard and its large, inviting swimming pool, while the interiors humorously combine traditional mid 20th century furniture with the latest in South African design.

Our favourite is the interactive farm-style kitchen which invites guests to try a hand at combining flavours under the cheerful guidance of their personal chef or if the guests would rather have a more relaxing time, they can simply watch as the chef cooks up wholesome and delicious snacks whenever they want.

Lay out

Melton Manor is a 4-bedroom, contemporary frontier farmhouse designed with many communal living spaces as well as private corners to retreat into.
