About Granny Dot's Country Spot

A family homestead for 70 years, this friendly guest house, scenically perched on 28 hectares of rolling green hills in the farming district of Agatha, 16 km above Tzaneen, overlooks the magnificent Wolkberg mountains, forests and waterfalls. Abundant bird life, you may see small game. Hike to the dam, relax by the secluded pool or visit the numerous scenic attractions in our area.

Unwind in front of the roaring log fire in winter, enjoy a friendly chat in our cosy pub and then a delicious prearranged dinner. Here you will find genuine hosts who go that extra mile to make your stay a memorable one, 3 km of farm road. Mobile coverage is limited but we do have Wi-Fi in all rooms.

What a beautiful tropical farm stay. Joyce and Richard were the most amazing people who made our stay even better than we could have imagined, their hospitality has not been matched. The grounds are massive with many places to walk and so many different types of creatures to see. The accommodation is very spacious, clean and private. It was as though we had found a new home. Swimming in the pool overlooking the mountains in the evening was just magical. The pictures online don't do any justice and everywhere we went on the property provided new sites and wonders.

Our stay at Granny's Dot was really good value for money. As a family of 6 we rented the self contained bungalow and were very comfortable for the 3 days we were there. Thank you to Joyce and Richard for the warm welcome.The view from the bungalow is breath taking.Many thanksTim and Dawn Goodman and Family

We visited Granny Dots for a short weekend get away from the city. We opted for self catering and everything was found. It was definitely a good decision. If your looking for 5star accommodation then this isn't for you but if you're looking for a home away from home feel that's comfortable with views that are just mesmerizing then I would highly reccommend Granny Dot's Country Spot. It was so peaceful and the hosts were friendly and accomodating.
