About Arbour Gardens

Arbour Gardens offers three self-catering country cottages set within 6 hectares of land in Magaliesburg. The property is set on the outskirts of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site and nestled in one of the most scenic sites right on the banks of the Magalies River; this makes it the ideal getaway for couples or families.

Enjoy lying by the river listening to the soothing sound of running water, or get out and about with lots to do in the surrounding area. Swim some lengths in the deep, blue swimming pool, catch a tan on a sunlounger or meditate in the Japanese Garden.

The sleepy little village of Magaliesburg lies in the Witwatersberg and its nearest neighbours are Doornhoek and Hekpoort; it’s an easy hour’s drive from Johannesburg.

Magaliesburg serves as a weekend Mecca and tourist destination that offers numerous country restaurants, hiking trails, birdwatching opportunities, rock climbing, hot-air ballooning and mountain biking. Driving through the little towns in and around Magaliesburg is a pleasant afternoon meander.

Spa: There's a boutique Spa less than 1km away which will gladly do on-site visits.

Family friendly: Kids will enjoy paddling in the Magalies River as well as the surrounding lawns. A large pool takes care of all your summer fun and if the weather's not ideal there's still a sandpit dart board and trampoline.

Romantic: Our luxurious River House is the ideal Romantic getaway with French country style, a huge fireplace and a secluded patio. Pack a picnic and laze beside the river, listening to the water bubbling over the stones. Several restaurants close by.

              The house was to die for, the forest house is beautifully designed and furnished, a home away from home! It got a bit hot in the evenings, aircon would be nice especially for the smaller rooms.

              the room service can be improved. if visitors are to stay more than a day, there should be enough towels. but overall, we enjoyed our stay

              What a pleasant surprise. A huge house with ample space to house a big family or group of friends. Very quiet surrounding and lovely layout. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay and are planning a return visit.Only negative - the oven was really dirty.

              We stayed in the Forest Lodge for a weekend. What an amazing house! Classic modern style, stunning decor and functionality. Bedrooms one can only dream about, crisp white linen and beautifully decorated. Set amid a natural forest, one can relax on the massive deck and listen to the sounds of nature while your fire crackles away in the fireplace. We will most certainly return, hopefully soon!
