Cullen's at the Cottage
If you are planning a special meeting or celebration and want to mark the occasion in style, then Ashford Castle offers a number of spaces to suit your preferences and requirements.
From intimate dining to grand banqueting, we'll create the ambience you desire with a host of personal and thoughtful touches to make the event one you and your guests will remember fondly. Discreet and efficient staff will be on hand to ensure you have everything you wish to make the event a success and a range of menus and wines can be tailored to your needs.
Immersed in the timeless wilderness of the Cederberg, the four treatment rooms at The Spa draw inspiration from the restorative powers of nature. With picture windows flooding the space with natural light and fynbos views, these contemporary treatment rooms all feature heated beds, luxurious towels and robes, aromatherapy candles and relaxing music. Our experienced therapists are on hand to discuss the varied treatment menu and wellness journeys on offer, including the signature experiences inspired by the endemic flora and healing energy of the ancient Cederberg landscape.
After your spa treatment, spend a while relaxing in the serene Tranquillity Lounge. A selection of magazines is available for your enjoyment, or use these quiet moments to meditate and restore mental balance in a space of perfect serenity. The lounge leads onto lush lawns of a manicured private garden, enticing you to soak up the views of the wilderness beyond. The Health Bar in the Tranquillity Lounge is filled with complimentary water, herbal infusions and healthy snacks for Spa guests, helping you to replenish energy levels before and after treatments.
Bushmans Kloof offers four swimming pools for the use of guests, including a heated outdoor pool situated just a few steps from The Spa. Set alongside the shaded terrace of The Homestead, the heated pool is particularly popular in winter and offers an ideal way to ease tension and release tired muscles before a treatment, or to relax and rejuvenate afterwards. When your spa journey is complete, relax on the sun loungers with a glass of rehydrating rooibos iced tea, a herbal infusion renowned for its antioxidant properties.
As much as Bushmans Kloof offers an indulgent escape, we know that some guests like to keep fit and active while on holiday. Our well-equipped fitness centre is open daily for guests to up their heart rate, or work on their weights. This compact gymnasium is equipped with a spinning cycle, bar and weights, yoga mats, Pilates ball, mirrors, bottled water and towels. The Fitness Centre overlooks the outdoor heated pool, and is situated alongside the dual massage room. Please note that there is no fitness instructor available.
