The 4-Star Pleasant Places offers comfortable and cosy accommodation in a quiet setting, overlooking the Lions River and picturesque farming and forest scenes. The peace and tranquillity on the farm make for an ideal place of retreat and drawing aside from daily life.

When staying at Pleasant Places, guests can choose from five different rooms; the En-suite Double Room and rooms A, B and C, and the Family Unit. The rooms are furnished with comfortable king- or queen-size beds, with some rooms having a sleeper couch available on request. The Family Unit also has twin beds and it can sleep up to five people. Visitors can relax in the lounge, on the patio overlooking the Lions River or find a quiet spot in the rambling garden. In winter log fires warm the lounge and dining room.

The large number of trees in the garden, the pine forest along the river and the Blue gum forest higher up are alive with numerous species of birds to delight keen bird watchers. Birds are very tame and a variety can be seen while relaxing on the patio.

There are several species of buck in the pastures and forests and, though timid, have been seen from time to time. A number of sections along the river are suitable for swimming, unless it is flooded and becomes, though exciting tubing down the six rapids can be enjoyed by the more adventurous. Those into mountain biking can ride around in the district and the more adventurous can tour the famed Midlands Meander route. There are a few stables around offering horses, ranging from hacks to more sophisticated beasts, for those who enjoy horse riding.

Golfers can arrange a game on the nearby Bosch Hoek Estate Golf Club, known as one of the prettiest in the country or at the Sakabula Club in Howick. The farm is situated in the centre of the famed Midlands Meander arts and crafts route and visitors can enjoy a day or two driving around seeing all the goods and services offered by the various members.

Pleasant Places is as it says - very pleasant It's comfortable, pretty and very good food!

Sarah Edwards, South Africa

'The only man who behaved sensibly was my tailor; he took my measurement anew every time he saw me, while all the rest went on with their old measurements and expected them to fit me.'(George Bernard Shaw). This is a very apt description of the experience we as a family had at Pleasant Places. John and Linda have managed to create a unique experience for the weary travelers. Following months of business and other setbacks, my family and I arrived at PP with a wish to rejuvenate, relax and enjoy the Country. We have received so MUCH MORE. Dinners consists of Excellent Food, in the class of Specialist Restaurants, a treat to the palate. There were little things, like a clean car every day, a subtle wise word, outstanding wine at very, very reasonable prices which made the experience so much more rewarding. We have stayed in so many very fine establishments before with outstanding service and cuisine, this time we however felt that these specific 'tailors' have taken our measurements anew and for that we are so grateful and impressed. Worth the Visit. With Love Christo, Martha, Andrew (12) and Andrea (3). PS - John did an outstanding cousine job even with the smallest member (Andrea) of our family with desert in the form of Rooimuis (read Roomys or Ice Cream). Ask for this - it is a treat.

Had a wonderful stay, was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful views especially sunrise from the room. Would have preferred a bath and a slightly larger room, which we will make sure to book next time a little earlier. Lovely hosts John and Linda, really heartly breakfasts, and good location.
