The entire team at Cranford Country Lodge has been incredible from the moment we viewed the venue right up till the day we drove out as a married couple. We had a few spots lined up for viewing, Cranford was the first and only venue we looked at. The moment we were greeted with the friendliest faces and were taken... More

I'm very impressed by this place! The cottages are exquisite, clean and neat. Waking up on a cold winters mornings to farm-sounds and seeing horses when looking out your window is a fantastic stress-reducer. We will definitely return to Cranford, hopefully to stay longer. I have to make a special mention of the staff who catered to our breakfasts in... More

This place is a great venue for weddings or private functions as the property is surrounded by lush green, is quiet and serene. I woke up to this exact view/feeling the 1st morning we spent here. Almost every part of the property is good for a photograph :) The room we stayed in was adequate and quaint with a comfortable... More

Attended a family members wedding at this wonderful venue and was very happy with the overall experience. All rooms were on B&B basis. The room (acacia cottage) was adequate and nicely furnished. The bed was comfortable and bedding was more than sufficient (even considering it was winter). Only issue was the fact there was no door separating the bedroom from... More

We have attended several weddings at this venue, and always remember the lush green lawns and delicious food. The various function facilities are quite spread out over the property, so when it rains be prepared to get wet. The dining venue is quite cosy, and in Summer months very hot as there's no airconditioning. During the wedding reception, guests who... More

We stayed at Cranford for one night after spending 3 nights at Rockwood lodge close to Karkloof. This property was a pleasant surprise and much better value compared to Rockwood. We stayed in Lemontree and the unit had a bedroom with a small double bed, a fire place, two chairs, a small table and a coffee station. The second bedroom... More
