About The Pennefather

 Sleeps 12
Check-in: 1:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM

The Pennefather is situated within walking distance to shops and restaurants in Haenertsburg Village, and a great base from which to explore the surrounding areas of Magoebaskloof. Re-live the atmosphere of a bygone era, with grandma's bread pans, the gold miner's tools and old books that tell tales of old times. There are three trading posts on the property and six self-catering cottages. The luxury cottages are named after well-known personalities that shaped the history of Haenertsburg in the early nineteen hundreds.The two trading posts are both named after gold-mining companies and both buildings were built in the style reminiscent of that time. Remember yester-year as you browse through the trading posts filled with an old-world charm.Never Despair is a nostalgic shop that stocks a good range of selective antiques, collectibles and gifts. New Found Out is a lovely jumble of colourful clothing, shoes and interesting accessories. Memory Hold-The-Door is a second-hand bookshop that will hold and entice you to sit down in front of the fireplace with a book on your lap. The coffee shop leads onto an outside patio and offers delicious homemade sweet-and savoury treats.Pet friendly - please enquire.

Better insulation below the floor and in the ceiling? Quite chilly, but not too bad. Wanted to buy extra firewood as per instructions but none available.

We had a wonderful and memorable stay in the Prester John cottage at The Pennefather. Stay there again? Absolutely! Haenertsburg and the surrounding area is a must to visit.

The reception is to be found in the attached bookshop cum cafe. The prefab houses are spacious enough, each with a carport. Just wondering why the bathroom is so tiny?Several eating venues are just down the road, as is the local supermarket and a nice coffee shop.
