Information about Thatchwood Country Lodge
Thatchwood Country Lodge is situated at the entrance of St Francis Bay, opposite the Jack Nicklaus Links course and overlooking the 6th tee of the St Francis Golf Course from the garden. Seven tastefully decorated en-suite rooms offer all comforts and most have their own private garden or sundeck.

Enjoy a round of golf on one of the two courses or just stroll down the fairways to the unspoilt white beaches and watch the whales and dolphins. Relax near the pool in our beautiful garden and watch the birds, enjoy a drink in Harries Bar or read a book in one of our two lounges.

St Francis is the perfect destination for water sports enthusiasts and for hikers. Birders too can enjoy a vast variety of birds to view. Thatchwood is not only a perfect base for golfers, but also to discover the area and visit the game parks like Addo Elephant Park and many others.

An ideal start or finish to the Garden Route.
