Kurland, South Africa

Kurland is the stuff of holiday fantasies. In reach of Plettenberg Bay’s beaches, mountains and forested national parkland, this fairytale family home on a vast and beautiful private estate has buckets of character, a never-be-bored menu of things to do, inspiring staff and adorable children’s rooms. The gardens are mature and rambling, the polo pitch hosts matches every day during the season, the Cape Dutch architecture and fine interiors mix colonial country chic with contemporary comforts...What’s the catch? Deciding what to do during your stay. How are you ever going to find time to fit in the pony rides, quad biking, facial in the spa, dip in the pool, whale-watching tour, vineyard visit, forest-canopy tour, an elephant trek…? Ah well, you’ll just have to stay a bit longer. 

The Crags 6602, Nature’s Valley, South Africa. Tel: 002 7534 8082. Prices from £283 per night, including breakfast. Under-fives stay free in parents’ suites; five- to -12-year-olds from £48; 13- to 16-year-olds from £91. For more information on all these hotels, visit
