  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 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 seven 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.
