We needed a stop-over from East London to the Drakensberg and Peacehaven seemed to be the best choice but we had no high expectations. We couldn't have been more wrong! We received a very friendly welcome and since we had not been able to find somewhere to have lunch it being a Sunday we were offered, without asking soup with... More

The owners were most helpful and went out of their way in resolving a puncture which I had - we would have been really stuck without their help ! This was followed by an excellent meal and a few galsses of wine and great hospitality in a beautiful country setting

After hours of asphalt oncoming lorries and crazy white taxi drivers, changing gears on a well maintained dirt farm road with no traffic was a very welcome respite. Directions were effective and we found Peace Haven easily. The very competent hosts Pat and James are a lovely couple and we felt at home right away. A stunning view of rolling... More

The stay at Peacehaven Guesthouse was short however with a good night's rest and a full breakfast the stay could not really be improved. I arrived at night and could not take in the surrounding area. After breakfast the view hit me right between the eyes and with the presence of the loving dogs I would say that this is... More

If you are travelling from PE or East London to/from Kwazulu/Drakensberg/Durban and don't want to travel for 10hours+ then there is really very little choice but to hook up in the Kokstad area (Unless you want to experience the madness that is mthata!). And if you do choose to stay there, then this guesthouse is probably your best choice. It... More

We stopped off at Peacehaven on our way to Grahamstown from Durban. It was the perfect stop over point. We were welcomed and shown to our beautiful cottage, plenty of space for my husband, daughter and myself. We were treated to hearty delicious evening meal and a perfect breakfast. Our room was well equipped for the evening load shedding. We... More

We stayed at Peacehaven Guesthouse only one night as we were driving between the Wild Coast and Durban. We had the most wonderful stay. Everything about it made us feel we could breathe deeply and relax. The couple who runs it are lovely human beings and it was just such a pleasure to meet them. The gorgeous home with stunning...

From a beautiful location to the most magnificent home cooked hearty meals, Peacehaven is the ONLY place to stay in Kokstad. Warm helpful and friendly service, private outdoor cottages with stunning views, tea, coffee and home baked rusks in the room. Pat will go out of her way to help you as she did with us to help repair our... More

Praise must be given to Phillip as he had great Ideas on over what to do and where to go at the nearby Berg. We will definitely stay 2 nights next time we... More

We had a lovely stay at Peacehaven. The off the beaten track situation is properly tranquil and the hosting is superb, with meals that are wonderful. The only advice that I would give is to check that the room has a shower. Ours did not but we were given access to the next door room, so it didn't affect us.
