At Lyndhurst Guest Cottage you will wake up to the sound of guinea fowl feeding in the garden, later eat a freshly picked pineapple, take a leisurely stroll around the beautiful landscaped garden with its abundant birdlife surrounding the main homestead or just sit, relax and enjoy the tranquility of the country side. That's what you will find and do at "Lyndhurst Guest Cottage" situated 7kms from the historic picturesque village of Bathurst in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Bathurst is where the largest pineapple in the world can be found, and also the social event of the year, the now famous Bathurst Ox Braai, Port Alfred the toast of the Sunshine Coast is only 22kms away with its beautiful beaches and the tip top Royal Port Alfred Golf Club.

The Lyndhurst Guest Cottage was originally a grain store that has been renovated and extended. The main bedroom is fully carpeted and has a queen size bed, all linen is supplied. A hairdryer is provided in the draw of the dressing table in the main bedroom. There is an electric blanket and a heater to keep our guests cosy in winter. The second bedroom is also carpeted with built in cupboards and has three single beds in it. Two of these are extra long for those who need them,they all have electric blankets and there is also a heater for those cooler winter nights.

The lounge area is small but cosy with a comfortable lounge suite, remote colour TV,video machine and a selection of videos. It looks over the garden and children's play area with swings, slide, jungle gym and tree house. The Cottage is serviced daily except for Sundays and public holidays. The bathroom consists of a glass fronted shower, handbasin and a toilet. All towels, toiletries and toilet rolls are provided.

In the garden there is a salt water swimming pool for those who want to cool down or catch up on your tanning. Sun loungers and towels are supplied for our guests, sunscreen or suntan lotion is all you will need. The pool house has toilets and changing facilities, as well as a shady patio. On the patio is a cane suite for those wanting to escape the sun but still be able to keep an eye on things.

Farm Activities: 500 metres from the Cottage are three dams with bass in them. We practice a policy of catch and release on the Farm, but do take a few of the smaller fish out to prevent over population. This can cause a stunting in size due to competition for a finite food supply.

There are numerous malaria free game parks in the area. Many of them contain the big five (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino). Packages for day visits are available at most of them. Should you wish further information or reservations, we would be happy to assist you. The Addo National Elephant Park, is about an hours drive from us.

Bathurst is home to the largest pineapple in the world, 10% bigger than the ones in Australia, though we have heard rumours they are building a new one. The pineapple consists of three floors, the ground floor is a gift shop selling a variety of local goods and produce. The 1st floor is all to do with the pineapple story in the Eastern Cape and consists of static and animated displays. The second floor provides local tourist information and leads up to the observation deck, with wonderful views of the surrounding area.
