About Red Earth

If you and your family need a quiet, peaceful breakaway then Red Earth farmhouse is just the place for you. The farmhouse was built from red earth dug on the farm. The bricks made from the red clay were sun dried and used without firing them. This retained the rich red colour. It's very much a homemade home. Red Earth is on the farm Buffelsfontein, 25 kilometers from Magaliesburg and 40 kilometers from Rustenburg. It lies in the Bankenveld, which is on the transition between the Bushveld and the Highveld. Here life is simple and unwinds into peacefulness and tranquility. There are still small buck, baboons, porcupines, monkeys, rabbits and a variety of bird species on the farm. Red Earth offers self catering accommodation for the family, sleeping 6 guests. There are 3 bedrooms, a large lounge, dining area, kitchen, pantry and a bathroom with a bath and shower. The main bedroom has a queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has a double bed. The 3rd bedroom has a single bed and a futon. The kitchen is fully stocked with cutlery, crockery, toaster, fridge and stove. There is a braai facility on the stoep, we supply firewood. Children of all ages are welcome to stay at Red Earth. Things to do: Hiking into the kloof to find the cave and up the big mountain to view ancient stone circles. Bring your own bikes to cycle on the kilometers of dirt roads in the area. Swimming in the farm reservoir. Suntan and relax on the walls, enjoying the stunning view. Children can interact with the chickens and rabbits we keep. Drawing materials and paper is available for them to use.

      What a gem! A refuge from the city. Perfect for weekend getaways. Allen was so helpful. Definitely back soon.

      We loved our stay at red earth :) The pics don’t really donit justice. It’s a beautiful house with a lot of character. The stoep is amazing for making fire and the hike was super lovely. We even had some furry friends come say hello which is always a bonus. It’s 1:30mins from Joburg so a really great option for a quick weekend get away. The reservoir pool has the most gorgeous view, great spot for a sundowner. Mostly it is quiet! No city noise, just you and the sounds of the bush. Allan has an eclectic book collection, drums, a singing bowl and comfy couches. I’d highly recommend. No mess no...

      My stay at Red Earth @ Magaliesburg was relaxation at its best. Tranquil and safe setting, great facilities, good bird watching and lovely trails. I would definitely recommend this venue to others.

      House is so well stocked with everything you might need. Space is peaceful and quiet. There are some bats in the roof, which is probably unavoidable in the area but not for the faint hearted. Definitely would recommend

      If you expect 5 star, you will be disappointed.If you anticipated being surrounded by awesomeness, you will be pleasantly surprised. Allan is the perfect host. Red Earth has everything and more.I will recommend Red Earth to nature lovers, those who need to escape from this crazy city life, being a group or single, those who don't mind being without the microwave, and TV...Thank you Allan for sharing your jewel with us, I will be back soon. Thanks Ansie Kirsten
