About Anford Country House

Anford House and Restaurant is ideally situated between Johannesburg and Nelspruit and the Kruger National Park just off the N4 highway and offers accommodation and bed and breakfast facilities to travelers. It is also an ideal venue for a weekend getaway with some excellent fly fishing only 2 hours from Gauteng. Anford House and Restaurant also caters for small conferences and weddings. 

Anford Country house is situated in a natural Pine forest on the escarpment with several dams and waterfalls flowing next to it. All the dams are spring fed and are well stocked with trout for the fly fisherman. Scenic walks through the forest to the waterfalls and Boer war sites are for the more energetic.

Anford lies on the foot of the Steenkamps mountains and has sandstone formations. The water has cut valleys through the ancient formations and is home to some very rare fauna and flora.

Anford Country house is situated on Anford Estate in Mpumalanga between Belfast and Machadodorp on the escarpment. The original house was built in 1872 and was recently refurbished and turned into a Country house and Restaurant for the passing travelers on the N4 highway. Accommodation for 20 people in various en-suite room configurations can be catered for. A private family unit with three bedrooms is also available.

                  What you advertised we got, real country style home away from home. From the pure white walls, genuine creaking wooden floors, perfect clean private bedrooms with en suite bathroom equipped with bath and shower and entire house surrounded by perfect cut green grass. The cherry on top is the high quality mattress and bedding, enough hot water throughout our stay. Surrounded by huge pine trees, dam with waterfall when raining with picnic spot makes you feel the country at its best. Rooms are serviced every day during our short stay and to round of staff that is very helpful and friendly!

                  We stayed in the Forest Cottage. Although I would not describe it as a luxury stay, it was clean and comfortable and very spacious. Much of the cottage has recently been revamped.

The hike was really lovely and just the right amount of adventure for our two young kids (aged 4 and 7). They enjoyed playing around the house and I loved hearing birdsong and just enjoying...
