About Deruxa Cottages
Deruxa Cottages are situated on a 21-hectare farm that was acquired by the Moolman family as the ideal way to introduce their children to the outdoors. They subsequently moved there for a few years to enhance their quality of living and since then, the family has moved back to the city and the facilities have expanded.
The property is located a mere 40 km north of Pretoria, 45-minutes' drive from the eastern and northern Pretoria regions. The historical town of Cullinan provides many attractions and restaurants and is only 20 km east of the farm.
The farm has been game fenced, with a few species of game introduced. An open-air lapa, conference facilities and kitchen, bar and ablution facilities have been added to the property, as well as three free-standing cottages, while the old farmhouse was refurbished as a self-catering unit for family and weekend breaks. Deruxa Cottages offers a variety of rooms, ranging from self-catering in the old farmhouse to fully catered cottage accommodation.
The venue is ideal for families and friends to rekindle friendships, but can also be used by businesses to hold small conferences, managerial meetings and year-end functions.
