Ogram’s Country House

Luxury Midlands Meander self catering & fully catered accommodation

Luxury midlands meander accommodation at its best! Ogram’s is a lovingly restored country house dating back to the late 19th century. The house is set under a huge oak tree with rolling lawns that overlook several trout dams. Roaring fires, original Oregon pine floors, sash windows and high ceilings perfectly capture the magic of a bygone era. It is a setting of absolute peace and tranquility.

This luxury guest house accommodates 10 guests in 5 bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom. 3 of the rooms are in the main house whereas the other two rooms are cottages, each with fireplaces in their own small private sitting rooms. All bedrooms are equipped with electric blankets, gas heaters and hairdryers.

The main lounge is furnished with leather couches, a plasma television, and a fireplace. The dining room has a large 8 seater teak dining table, a smaller 4 seater children’s table, and a 105-year-old fireplace. The bar has its own mini refrigerator, comfortable couches, and yet another fireplace.

The kitchen contains all the modern amenities for easy self-catering, and braai facilities on the veranda make for perfect outdoor cooking. Alternatively you can choose our fully catered options and enjoy our healthy and sumptuous meals.

Other amenities include wireless internet connectivity and the full DSTV bouquet. There is no cell phone reception on the reserve.
