About Phefumula Country Retreat

Nestled snugly in the mountains, our luxurious, secluded cottages have magnificent views of the crags - ideal for when you want a breather to reconnect body and soul. Each cottage has an open-plan lounge and dining area with a fireplace, a separate bedroom with a beautiful king-size bed, a well-equipped kitchen, a double bath, a double inside shower, a double outside shower and a secluded spa bath.

Complimentary port is served on chilly winter nights and the outdoor furniture is comfortable and perfect for dinner on the patio. Meals cooked by our resident chef can be arranged on request.

The energetic can walk to the top of the Magaliesberg mountain and then wander along the ridge for several kilometers to enjoy the spectacular views on both sides. Bring your day pack, book a picnic basket with tasty homemade "goodies" and have lunch while enjoying a panorama of the oldest mountain range in the southern hemisphere. Guests can also have fun mountain biking and horse riding along one of the numerous trails.

Phefumula is surrounded on three sides by game farms, the fourth open to the mountain and the Magaliesberg Protected Nature Environment. There are a number of animals that may be seen on walks or rides. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the spectacular scenery.

Spa: We use a local provider, Just Haven, who come to the cottage by arrangement.

Romantic: Rated the best romantic retreat in the Magaliesburg by Getaway magazine in 2015.

The best weekend ever.  Very, very relaxing.  The cottage is well secluded and romantic.  Dave and Jenni went out of their way to make everything comfortable.  Excellent getaway for couples. Will definitely recommend to others.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a refreshing Pims cocktail. We had ordered a picnic basket in the morning before arriving. The basket contained some wonderful homemade goodies. The chalet was a wonderful size and you can tell they thought of everything. From lighting, to candles, to candles to get rid of bugs, robes, private jacuzzi, when I say they have thought of everything you will understand what I mean when you go there. Dinner was amazing and I'm happy they could accommodate all our needs considering I had booked the night before. We will definitely be back for longer...
