We stayed here for five nights in a wonderful two en suite room cottage with central kitchen and dining room, and a large stoop with further dining area, bbq, plunge pool, hammock and great views. The property is in a private and secluded location but contrary to a previous report is easy to find when following the directions provided, which... More

Yes, you have to drive on a dirt road to get to this B&B but what a paradise you discover if you do! Excellent service and accommodation. Well equipped kitchen and the manager offers to make you guacamole (the best I have ever tasted). I highly recommend this superb place.

In order to reach Ashbourne it convenient to use Google maps; drive to Hazyview, up Waterberry Hill Road (gravel road) and then the venue is easily found. We were happy to find that Ashbourne was authentic and tranquil. We were welcomed by Rob and some of the Danish Dogs. He showed us around the premises (partly under construction, which is... More

Spent 5 days mid December at this tranquil lodge. Our accommodation was amazing, uniquely and tastefully decorated, allowing you to feel "at home" and spoilt at the same time. A big thanks to Rob and Dawn for making our stay so memorable. We highly recommend this establishment and will certainly be returning.

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a 'get away from the busy city' trip. We felt very unwelcomed. One night we were in our room, minding our own business, when the owner knocked on our door. He asked if we had switched off a certain light switch. We answered that we had indeed been using the switches for the... More

I stayed in one of the cottages in Ashbourne Country Escape. Ashbourne is a little away from the main road and you have to drive up a mud road to reach the place. Once you get there, you find the cottages to be very comfortable and spacious. Rob greeted us on our arrival and he was full of good humour.... More

We (a couple) stayed here for 2 nights this October 2014 as part of our quick trip to Kruger and the surrounding area. We were warmly welcomed by Rob and his many (and very friendly) hounds! I just loved the design and setting of this gorgeous B&B. Not too far from Hazyview centre on the R536, up an unsealed road... More
