You are invited to spend time here and share some of Andrew and Conny's dream. The Antbear is a place for feeding your soul and rekindling your spirit. The quaint and charming cottage puts its arms around you and reminds you that there are things more important than everyday life.
The Antbear Guesthouse is a thatched, whitewashed cottage, a bit off the beaten track and is more of an insider tip than just another bed and breakfast. Small intimate groups are catered for and there is never more than 10 guests at a time here. Itís a laid back, lovingly cared for kind of place where you feel a sense of happiness and peace. Honeymoon stays turn into anniversary commemorations just as guests become friends. Even foreign tourists return for a second and third taste.
The name ďAntbearĒ comes from its previous resident who lived under the floorboards before its restoration just a few years ago. Itís filled with gorgeous hand crafted furniture, wonderful wooden sculptures and a seemingly never ending collection of artistic aspects to discover.
Plan for slow and decadent dinners by candlelight prepared by your hosts Andrew and Conny. Sometimes itís a Moroccan spread including a genuine Moroccan tagine prepared on wood coals or maybe itís a surprise of just how delightful Chinese food can be. Breakfast is served with freshly baked bread and scones and often it becomes a 2 hour affair.
There is plenty to do in the area too. Walks in the Drakensberg mountains, visits to bushman paintings, horse trails though the surrounding hills, canoe trips, canopy tours and the Midlands Meander to mention but a few
So if your looking for a place where art, beauty and time away are important then Antbear Guesthouse is worth a second look.
So just what is it that makes the Antbear your "perfect" Drakensberg accommodation?
