Dear Maggie Thank you for your feedback. As discussed, a few months after your experience (over two years ago) Richard Cox was no longer in our employ. Please accept our sincere apologies for this unfortunate experience. It is most certainly not indicative of our high standards, as you can see from the many reviews posted. I trust that we may...

This is the ideal place to break away from city life - tranquillity in a woodland setting. The service was very good - thanks Jessica for creating a lovely stay. The fireplace in our cottage was ideal to combat the cold and creating a warm and romantic ambience. We have enjoyed the fine dining and the pampering at the Wellness... More

Everything was just absolutely amazing and special. Thank you Henrich for all your trouble and effort. It was lovely meeting you. The food blew my mind and I had a little love affair with the panna cotta. I would definitely return to this beautiful place.

What a gem we found! This is a place to relax and unwind and to get away from it all. The grounds are beautiful, the trees proudly display all the warm colours of nature. The staff is friendly, the cottages very warm and cozy and time simply stands still here. The food is most enjoyable and the service fast and... More

Dear WilnaS, thank you for sharing your experience with us. Its hard to beat relaxing time around a fireplace in the tranquility of the country. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again, maybe to enjoy lazy summer days in the hammocks and outdoors in summer. Warm regards Helen More

The setting is nice with interesting and well marked walking trails. Each chalet is free standing and has adequate privacy. However our chalet (#10) left some to be desired. Furnishings felt dated and tired. There was no underfloor heating. But more concerning, the railing at the patio was loose. I mean, barely-held-by-one-loose-nail, kind of rickety ramshackle loose. I leaned on... More

Good day Thank you for your feedback. Please note that this experience of the loose patio rail is is not the norm and is unacceptable. As a result of your feedback, the matter has been attended to, along with a recheck of this aspect (and others) for all our cottages, to ensure we do not overlook this element in our... More

Fantastic place to get away for the weekend. Staff were friendly and highly professional and the setting is fantastic. Great massages done on the property as well as many more activities on your doorstep in magaliesberg and hartebeespoort.

We spend last week-end celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. So quiet, so peaceful, a lovelly warm welcoming room & cuisine to die for. If the Horse Whisperer does it for horses, WP does it for your sole - look no further! Louis-THE-lawyer
