Lothian House is located 30 minutes from Cape Town Airport. The house is similar to an Aman style resort ,situated on an award winning wine estate, located in the Kogelberg World Heritage Biosphere reserve, home to one of the most diverse ecology's on the planet.
The house is an architecturally triumph, it was recently completed to the highest European finishes, providing unsurpassed levels of comfort and luxury and style blended with privacy and security, all stunningly nestled into beautifuly designed and manicured flower gardens, lawns and fruit laden orchards, overlooking a picture postcard river on one side and the expansive Applethwaite Lake and Lothian award winning vineyard on the other. Every beautifully designed bedroom has an equally luxurious ensuite bathroom and private sundeck- every suite has views to die for.
The house and grounds feature every conceivable amusement from our stables, to jet ski's, ski-boat and paddle boards. Perhaps some fly-fishing on the lake; that is the envy of every fisherman in the cape (keep in mind you have a 1.5 km lake to amuse yourself in/on. Swings/slides, and trampolines (both water and land based) await the young ones, to soccer/croquet lawn or tennis/hiking/gym for the more energetic .
There is a 25m eternity edged heated pool, 8 person Jacuzzi ,fully kitted out Gym, and Sauna ; an in-pool bar, multiple dining areas, including a lily pad on the rivers edge - replete with fire pit , a favourite place to enjoy cocktails as the sun goes down. We have plenty to amuse the adults too, and plenty of places , to just relax and enjoy being with your friends , or away cuddled up in a quiet nook with book or parner -as the mood takes you.
The amenities are too many to list, but to name a few of the more eclectic :Wake-boarding, Air-Hockey, Table-Tennis to multiple well stocked Cocktail bars ,and the latest in-house Entertainment Systems, you have plenty to do regardless of the time or weather.
The staff are available to pamper the most discerning guests upon request, but can also make themselves almost invisible. The staff are truly brilliant, and match the quality/excellence of the house. We suggest starting the morning perhaps with a private Yoga teacher on your private deck or perhaps with a group of friends, or perhaps a set of Tennis- followed by a massage,
Whatever the age group of your guests, they are going to feel they have gone to Heaven. This is a home for the remarkable holiday, we don't do mundane here!. This house thrives on people, it's an entertaining heaven, it's for the special event in your life,for the the individual who has achieved, and wants to share their success with their family and friends.

Thankyou so much for making our stay for our wedding anniversary party so enjoyable. My wife fell in love with those amazing colour changing lights above the dining table...which wasn't a squeeze for our 14 guests. The roaring log fire just completed our celebratory dinner and the chef you provided cooked an inspirational dinner. The mist rolling in over the vineyards truly completed the ambience. We will be back.

Lothian House is breathtaking We have stayed there as a family a number of times both in the winter and in the summer. The number of activities is huge and varied: from horseriding to swimming to walking in the vineyards - nearby golf courses are goood and very reasonably priced too - not to mention the award winning wines once its time to kickback and properly relax. The hospitality too is first class, its personal and friendly but comprehensive. I would recommend Lothian House for an unforgettable stay and experience. Its also a unique and hugely impressive venue for a corporate or special social occasion given the setting and the design. cannot recommend highly enough.
We are always pleased to see our guests coming back. We also think there is something very special about the house and its setting and love welcoming you and your family to experience it again. We had our first wedding earlier this year...the groom arrived in our powerboat on the river which provided a touch of fun, and have just hosted the Beauty and the Beast tv show for several weeks of filming in and around the property. It is turning into a busy year but we hope to see you this summer as well.

Simply a very beautiful place to unwind and be looked after by very nice people
Thankyou Simon....we hope to see you again soon. The fishes in the river are already trembling at the thought of seeing you and your rod on the banks again. since your booking we have added several benches around the property to take advantage of the views and can now provide picnics, replete with wines from the estate which will shortly also feature a champagne, and will make your post fishing experience even more enjoyable!

Thank you for an amazing stay. The views were absolutely to die for and I have suffered a craving since leaving for another bottle of your fabulous Chardonnay while watching the sun set over the fantastic infinity pool. Thankfully bought your Chardonnay home with me...but can't transport your pool and house. Amazingly appointed rooms, stuffed full of lovely smellies for the incredible egg bath. My friends and I just adored every minute...lazing by the windows watching the view, taking the jet skis out, going fishing on the river, hikes between the vineyards and proteas. Staff couldn't have been more attentive and discreet. Bedrooms were to die for...and i must get those sheets you have. We are planning a winter trip later in the year and will definitely book your place for log fires and that delicious Pinot noir. Thanks so much.
