In the foothills of the Tsitsikamma mountains surrounded by natural forest and fynbos, lies the village of Storms River, where you will discover Armagh Country Lodge.

Spacious, en suite rooms with magnificent views and private patios which lead into the sprawling natural gardens will entice you into spending at least a couple of days in this ecological wonderland. From your patio, your views will be only mountain, forest & fynbos.

Situated only minutes drive from the Tsitsikamma National Park and an easy stroll to mountains and forest you will also be in the heart of adventure territory: Forest Canopy Tours, scuba diving, bungee jumping. Or simply recline at our private pool with the best views in the Tsitsikamma. Amazing birding, forest trailing & cycling (our own bikes) or swimming in a secluded mountain pool.

In the evening, relax around a log fire in our acclaimed restaurant or on the patio under the stars and enjoy delicious South African cuisine and the vineyard’s finest from our hand-selected wine list.

The Armagh, a piece of paradise on the Garden Route, South Africa offers six rooms each with its own en suite bathroom, private entrances and patios, and a beautiful free standing Cottage in its own totally private garden. See separate page for details of Oak Cottage.

All our rooms are spacious with magnificent views of mountain, forest and fynbos, and have been thoughtfully decorated and equipped for the comfort of our Guests.Each room has tea/coffee facilities, hairdryers and electric blankets, a range of toiletries, robes and slippers, percale linen and pure duck-down duvets and their own Lounge area.

From your own patio, stroll directly into a fynbos nature reserve or five minutes into amazing natural rain forest. For sheer relaxation our secluded swimming pool area is mere metres from your patio. We offer a complete drinks/snacks service by the Pool or on your own patio, while all your dining needs, be it Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner are catered for at our Rafters Restaurant where we specialise in South Africa cuisine.

The honeymoon suite (Keurboom room) offers additional privacy, space and comfort with King size bed. (And, as mentioned above, the most romantic bathroom). This additionally has under floor heating bar fridge and dressing room.

We at the Armagh County Lodge are confident that the quality, comfort, situation and views of our suites are unsurpassed in the area, and offer the best value for money available in the Tsitsikamma. Coupled with these qualities our happy experienced staffs are totally committed to the best, yet non- intrusive, service possible.

Oak Cottage - What started life as the operation’s centre for the Armagh building project, and later evolved into a craft shop, has now become a snug B&B hideaway. A place to commune with nature, listen to bird song and soak up the tranquil atmosphere in a garden both peaceful and private. This one bed roomed Cottage consists of a bathroom with bath and separate shower, lounge with Satellite T V and a little fitted kitchen complete with microwave and fridge/freezer.

Outside on the Patio squishy armchairs beckon with the Weber (kettle braai) on hand for delicious leisurely food.
In the middle of the garden is the perfect stone barbecue, and everywhere there are nooks and crannies including the seating placed under the 100 year old Oak Tree. Hammocks slung between the stalwart trees, planted by us twelve years ago, are the perfect place for catching up on the latest novel or just a pleasurable snooze.

Escape the stresses of everyday life, order a Barbecue pack, including assorted salads, and relax. Instructions offered by Johan free of charge!

Breakfast in a Basket can be brought to your Patio or all meals can be enjoyed in our Rafters Restaurant.

Ideally suited for the romantic honeymoon getaway.
