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.

                              Wonderful place with amazing views!We enjoyed our stay so much, Snuggery which we stayed in was very comfy and had big room with the fireplace and kitchenette. A lot of space in bathroom to put all the creams/lotions - very useful for girls travelling :) and overlooked in many establishments.Thank you Joyce and Richard - we had great time!

                              We stayed in Badger’s Den, a large private 3 (actually 4)bedroom house. The house is close to the main house, but totally private withits own garden. The views are awesome, it is out of this world, mountains andplantations, and more mountains! The fireplace is wonderful, the wood free, andthe house was serviced every day!The house is basic, not luxury but everything you need!

                              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. It was quiet and a perfect...
