Woodlands Country Retreat: Family Suite

  • 4 guests
  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom

Part of the appeal of booking a stay in the fantastical Rheenendal Valley is knowing that you will be completely immersed in nature and surrounded by unbelievable views. At Woodlands Country Retreat, you’re guaranteed all this and more. Host Julie Bryden and her family have turned their spectacular slice of land into a heavenly hideout, home to five lovely cottages. Take a walk through the towering king protea-lined pathways, or simply relax on your private deck as you listen to the soporific sounds of birdsong – no matter how you spend your time here, deep relaxation is a given.


The Loerie and the Owl Suites are the property’s two family suites, each with an open-plan lounge and kitchen and two separate bedrooms. The lounge and master bedroom open onto private sunset-facing decks, complete with floating ‘braais’ and hammocks overlooking the indigenous forested valley and gardens.
