The Holmleigh Lodge provides tranquil farm-styled accommodation in the beautiful Magaliesburg in a series of homely cottages. The Lodge is built on the banks of the Magalies River in a valley between the mountains 10km from Hartbeespoort Dam.
The 51 acre property offers a gorgeous natural retreat near the World Heritage site, the Cradle of Humankind, and emphasises relaxation and escape from city life.
The Lodge offers seven cottages that provide the perfect base for the farm-style experience, sleeping between two and six people each. The Holmleigh Cottage has a fireplace, lounge, fully stocked kitchen and spacious outside patio area, including a thick stone braai. The Bass Cottage sleeps four and has a cute little kitchen, lounge with a fireplace and wooden deck overlooking the dam.
The Hornbill, Kingfisher and Lourie collection all have fireplaces, large bathrooms on-suite and private patios with braai facilities. Every cottage has DSTV, is cooled by overhead fans and is completely pet friendly. Holmleigh Lodge is styled as a place for families to bond with each other and with nature.
The Lodge offers breakfast upon request and should guests not wish to self-cater there are also a number of excellent restaurants in the area. A variety of activities are available, including bird watching, bike rides, swimming, tennis and horse-riding through the picturesque surroundings.
The nearby Hartbeespoort Dam also offers sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing, parasailing and water skiing. Sundowner cruises on the dam are also a favourite. Better yet, you could try out hang-gliding or hot-air ballooning also offered in the area.
