Leeuwenbosch Shearers Lodge

Hotel / Boutique Hotel Accommodation in Paterson

Set back from the Country House, Shearers Lodge offers four contemporary double suites, overlooking the tranquil gardens from the shade of a wide veranda.

Beautifully converted from the original shearing shed, Shearer’s offers an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding areas of the Eastern Cape.

Addo Elephant National Park lies just 30kms away; the 1820 Settlers Monument in historical Grahamstown just a 30 minute drive along the N2 highway, and the Born Free Predator Rehabilitation Centre is 10 minutes from the Leeuwenbosch gate. The beautiful beaches of Kenton-on-Sea and Port Alfred are also easily accessed for a day on the beach. Day trip game drives into the Amakhala Game Reserve can be arranged, if required.

The Fowlds family began wool farming in 1926 and, since joining the Amakhala Game Reserve as a 3-star lodge, has converted the old shed into a beautiful lodge, a short walk up from the manor house. 

Each room is en-suite with direct access to the wrap-around verandah with views of the beautiful garden and pool below. Shearers Lodge has been converted and furnished with a contemporary feel, juxtaposed with the old foundations of our sheep shearing shed. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the patio in the morning sunshine.

Guests can savour a quiet moment in the dim stillness of the 19th-century stone chapel; enjoy high tea in the shade of the verandah or sit late into the night in the convivial stone-walled cellar bar. This wonderful homestead has been in the Fowlds family for five generations, and the family takes great pleasure in sharing its remarkable Southern African heritage.

Guests can also arrange, as an optional extra, game drives, walks and river cruises, through the scenic wilderness that is Amakhala Game Reserve. Observe the wide diversity of creatures that make this land their home guided by informative and experienced guides. From elephants to porcupines, rhino to lion and springbuck to exquisite birdlife, all are protected with a passion.


Shearers Lodge rate includes dinner and breakfast, with the option of booking a day safari at an additional cost. Shearers Lodge was converted from a sheep-shearing shed to a 4-roomed lodge with lovely views of our garden. Each of the suites can accommodate two adults and our special family suite
