Lydenburg lies at the heart of a farming community. It is an historic yet unpretentious (and not very lovely) town on the edge of the low veldt country and famous old gold-mining district, an area of breathtaking vistas. After a drive on a main road from the motorway that has more potholes than a Swiss cheese it was a true delight to reach this delightful guest house, a largish house set in a wonderful green garden with rooms (rather like horse boxes, even with doors in 2 sections) along one wall. The beds are handsome and comfy, there are lovely little touches to the rooms and a big tub to bathe in. To a European a town like Lydenburg has its surprises - such as no street lighting (other than shop windows) - and barely any restaurants except a busy, cheap, excellent value but extremely noisy family-orientated fish one (another oddity as Lydenburg is several hours inland). If touring this under-rated and beautiful part of South Africa I cannot recommend this place too highly. Breakfast was a delight and the managers (and owners) were all very friendly and full of useful local information.
