It’s the finishing touches at Granny Mouse!

Within keeping to their current status of 4.5 star rating through Trip Adviser, Granny Mouse Country House & Spa believe that when it comes to holiday accommodation, only the best should be emphasized especially when holidays are not easy to afford in our economic times.

This is one of the reasons why Granny Mouse have partnered with Lavender Co, a Howick based company that supply Granny Mouse Country House & Spa with liquid soap, bath oil, bath salt and lotion in the Lavender, Ylang-ylang & Sandalwood Collection.

If you’re on holiday to get away from it all and find that relaxing in a hot bath with aromatic smells helps you take the load off and rejuvenate yourself, then Granny Mouse should be your chosen destination. Their relationship with Lavender Co allows for the team to spoil their guests and add the small finishing touches to each room’s bathroom with specialized bath products that are laid out perfectly along with his and hers gowns and slippers with lavender sprigs included to add to the relaxation aspect of the stay.

“The blend of oils that are used in each of our products stimulate skin cell renewal and sooth sensitive skin. They have wonderful relaxing and de-stressing properties and smell absolutely fantastic,” says Lynnette Van Der Merwe of Lavender Co.

She adds that their products are made with natural ingredients including plant and vegetable oils of the highest quality and scented with essential oils. No fragrances, animal products or harmful chemicals are used to manufacture their products.

For those women who are taking a pre-baby honeymoon, the Lavender Co has created pregnancy safe products specifically for Granny Mouse. “Our Pregnancy Safe range has products scented with Tea Tree & Sweet Orange Oils. Both Tea Tree and Sweet Orange are completely safe to use during pregnancy and has immune boosting properties, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties,” Van Der Merwe adds.

The Granny Mouse staff agree that these small finishing touches are just one of the positive comments received by guests who visit the property and this is why they keep reinventing the wheel every year.

If you choose a destination based on the attention to details, then Granny Mouse should definitely be on your top 10 list of places to visit! To book contact 033 234 4071. For more information on where to find Lavender Co, contact
