Ashbourne Country Escape was such a delight! We arrived in the afternoon and were warmly greeted by Dawn and their 4 dogs. Dawn showed us around and then brought wine to our rooms so we could enjoy sundowners with the spectacular sunset. Very nice touch. The inn is down a dirt road and so worth a short drive to enjoy...

I am hesitant to write this review and promote this guesthouse, as it is a magical gem and I would really like to keep it all to myself! I booked a room in this guesthouse by chance as my husband and I had a long weekend and wanted to explore the Hazyview-Sabie River area. The directions to the guesthouse are... More

What an amazing start to our South African adventure. The hosts of Ashbourne Rob and Dawn are wonderful, as is their property. We had no idea what was awaiting us as we drove along the long entrance into Ashbourne. Rob was an absolute delight showing us around the property and orienting us to the local region. Soon we had maps... More

We stayed in a family cottage. A big, nice kitchen, two cozy lounges, two pretty bed rooms, and two clean spacious bathrooms. We used the fireplace to warm ourselves during dinner. It was a very lovely cottage. But the biggest charm for me was not the excellent rooms, nor the stunning sunset over sabie valley. It was Rob and Dawn.... More

By the luckiest chance we came upon Asbourne Country Escape. We had no plans about where to stay in the area and booked the honeymoon cottage at the very last moment. Three nights was definitely not enough and all the other places where we stayed during our trip just couldn't live up to this one. The cottage is sheer heaven... More

Rob and Dawn, sorry it's taken so long for me to write this review following our stay last September, but I wanted to finally get it done, and as we found your lovely place on Tripadviser it's only fair to share with others. Where do I start? Well, upon arrival Rob made us feel at home straight away, we had... More

A real gem hidden in the hills around Hazyview. Rob and Dawn are impossibly friendly and accommodating (My wife and I closed off our honeymoon trip with a short stay here, and upon hearing this was given a complimentary bottel of sparkling wine which we duly enjoyed on a pair of deckchairs while enjoying a picture perfect sunset over the...

We booked the honeymoon cottage for a one night stop over and wished we could have stayed longer. We received a really warm welcome from Rob and his wife Dawn , along with their lovely Great Danes and Baldrick the Weimaraner. Rob showed us around the property and the beautiful new build with amazing views and then onto our cottage.... More

Lovely self catering cottage with own private splash pool, stunning views and friendly large dogs. Well equipped kitchen and braai (barbeque) area. King size beds and very clean. Folllow directions via bookings.com carefully, it is not well signposted.

Ashbourne is great. Rob is a great host, the room gigantic, great bed and the best atmosphere. The view is super and Rob and his staff do their best to make your stay perfect. When in hazyview, book your stay at Ashbourne. It's worth the drive up the mountain.
