Dunstone Dog Christmas Competition – It’s a Dog’s Life!

Keeping with our four-legged theme, for Christmas this year we’re giving away one night at our 4* self-catering accommodation, Guava Cottage, to a well-behaved pooch and his/her loved ones! Does your Dunstone dog need to get away from it all?

To WIN this amazing prize, all you have to do is post a picture of your dog in the comments section of our Christmas Competition Social Post, which you’ll find on our social channels (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter) and tell us why your #Dunstonedog needs a break.

It goes without saying that to be eligible for this competition, you’ll need to bring your dog to Dunstone Country Estate to claim your overnight prize. This means, you will more than likely live within reasonable driving distance of Wellington or be happy to travel further afield with your dog.

Guava Cottage is the perfect pozzie for furry friends as it has its own walled garden to keep your pooch from roaming while you relax at the swimming pool and get a braai going.

With so many beautiful walks in the area, your dog will be spoiled for choice. The Stone Kitchen is also dog-friendly so if your pet is well trained and socialized, why not all join us for breakfast the next day before you head home.

We’ll choose a winner on Friday December 21st and the prize can be redeemed on any available date between 1st January and 31st December 2019, depending on availability at the time of booking.  Please note that we reserve the right to charge full room rate should the prize winner’s owners arrive without their Dunstone dog; please consider this carefully before entering the competition!

Welcome Summer Family Festival – Sat 8 December 2018

Nothing says ‘Hello Summer’ better than a festive garden party!

Think live music, the smell of a lamb spit braai smoking in the background, pop up food stalls, free wine tasting and craft beer on tap.

Dunstone Country Estate is pleased as punch to invite you to our ‘Welcome Summer’ family event, taking place on Saturday 8th December at our Estate bistro, The Stone Kitchen.

Kicking off at 12 noon, entry is free and everything you need to eat or drink will be available to purchase at one of our pop up stalls on the bistro’s back lawn.

For entertainment, we’re excited to welcome live local acts Wicus Le Roux and Die WildBerries who will be performing all of our favourite cover songs over the course of the afternoon. Get ready to bust out some moves on the dance floor or ‘floss’ it up in a dance-off with the younger generation!

Either way, it’s going to be great day out for the whole family and we can’t wait to officially see in the summer with our greater Dunstone Family. Feel free to bring your own picnic blankets, alternatively we’ll have all of our own outdoor tables, bean bags, sun umbrellas and picnic blankets arranged outside for your comfort and convenience. For guests seeking refuge from the sun, our large interior dining area will also open to all event goers.
