This charming colonial guesthouse is a must stop for those driving the 'Panorama Route' up to the Kruger National Park, through Mpumalanga. Situated on a 64 hectare farm, the original farmhouse dates from the turn of the 18th century. In 1991 it opened its doors as a five star country hotel offering gourmet cuisine and sweeping views of the Mpumalanga Lowveld valley.
Each of the 6 luxury suites are beautifullly furnished and a great size with seperate bedroom and living areas. The fireplaces in the rooms will be lit on cooler evenings creating a super romantic atmosphere. There are 2 executive suites which in addition to the features of the luxury suite come complete with private pool and courtyard.
