A trip to Fraser's Hill is never complete without a visit to Ye Olde Smokehouse. Even if you do not intend to stay overnight, just a few hours there is good enough to experience the quaint old English charm where one can take a walk down memory lane to the yonder days of our old colonial times.
Ye Olde Smokehouse Fraser's Hill is designed with mock-English Tudor architecture that resembles a colonial manor (English country house) with Old English windows and brick walls covered with creeping figs. There is an open area nearby with vintage chairs and tables for guest to enjoy some good afternoon tea amidst rustic surroundings.
The Smokehouse has been around since 1937 and it had even served as a Red Cross centre for the British Army during the pre-Independence days. It has since been renovated into a hotel with dining facilities.
Now let's take a look at the garden surrounding the Smokehouse.
