Mellowood House is situated on a private game estate just 17km outside Bela Bela, surrounded by tranquil mountains for guests to enjoy a complete breakaway. The guest house is 6kms on a gravel road into the estate from the R516 main road, so you will not be disturbed by the noise from the road. The house is only accessible by the dirt road.  There are strict noise regulations, no shouting, no loud TV or music.  This is a bushveld retreat.  Thaba Moriri is rated in the top 20 eco-estates in the country.  Please note that access through the main gate closes at 8.30pm, unless by prior arrangement.  Should guests be later than that they will not be granted access and will forfeit their deposit.

Accommodation is offered in 2 mountain view rooms and 1 separate guest apartment. All rates include bed and breakfast.  Supper is charged at an additional cost but needs to be pre-booked. 

The mountain view rooms offer magnificent views from all the rooms of the bushveld and various animals ranging from giraffes, zebra, wildebeest and kudu. The house also offers a plunge pool for guest enjoyment.  There are stunning walking trails and the dirt roads are ideal for cyclists.  There is a minimum booking of 2 nights at weekends.  Please bring your own swimming towels, our bathroom towels should remain in the guest room.  We have 2 small very friendly dogs who do not bite.

Guests can choose between the Ground Floor Apartment or Mountain View rooms.
