A Pond Frozen Over at Oaklands Country Manor

4 Reasons to Enjoy Winter at Oaklands

While many holiday destinations slow things down over the winter months, we use the drop in temperature as an excuse to turn up our hospitality and offer our guests a well-deserved break from the frantic pace of life.

Situated on the Oaklands Estate, a privately-owned country district polo club with world-class facilities, Oaklands Country Manor allows guests to escape to dramatically beautiful surroundings, with warm hospitality and phenomenal food.

Here are four reasons why you’ll want to escape to Oaklands this Winter:

1. The Comfort

We pride ourselves on our hospitality every day of the year, but during winter you really get to experience the Manor’s charm. All of our suites are fitted with their own fireplaces and have soft furnishings and luxurious linens to ensure that you unwind in a homely atmosphere.

2. The Food

No winter is complete without real comfort food and Kathy’s Kitchen has it covered. At Oaklands our food is as hearty as it is healthy. Most of our ingredients are grown on the Estate, with no pesticides or poisons. You can look forward to nourishing broths, delicious staples like ossobucco, flavourful root vegetable dishes and decadent desserts.

3. The Snow

They don’t call the Drakensberg the Swiss Alps of South Africa for no reason. During the winter months, the peaks of the mountain range are usually covered in snow, attracting visitors from around the world and giving us breathtaking views.

4. The Activities

Braving the cold is a very rewarding experience at Oaklands. We have a wide variety of outdoor activities the whole family can enjoy, before heading back to the Manor to warm up and relax. There is no shortage of things to do at Oaklands. Take advantage of our beautiful hiking trails, horse riding and much more.

We look forward to hosting you this winter.
