About Welgelegen Manor
Set in the tranquil farmlands of Balfour, Mpumalanga, just an hour's drive from Johannesburg, lies the magnificently restored Welgelegen Manor designed by South Africa's iconic architect, Sir Herbert Baker in 1913. This is the ideal getaway for a country-house weekend, a small conference, or an intimate garden wedding.
A sense of peace and tranquility greets you on arrival, echoing through the reception rooms with original fireplaces for cold winter nights, and spacious, luxury guest suites where every comfort is catered for. Beautifully appointed, the suites have been designed to enhance the style and elegance of yesteryear.
If you're not soaking up the sun next to the large, sparkling pool or having a drink in our cosy bar, have a game of billiards or board games in our games room. For the book worm, the "Ladies Lounge" or our secluded courtyard is ideal to enjoy your own company with a good book and a cup of tea with home baked treats.
Welgelegen is renowned for its wine cellar with a host of fine vintage wines. Select yours to enjoy with the fine dining experience offered.
