There are three trading posts on the property and six self-catering cottages. The luxury cottages are named after well-known personalities that shaped the history of Haenertsburg in the early nineteen hundreds.The two trading posts are both named after gold-mining companies and both buildings were built in the style reminiscent of that time. Remember yester-year as you browse through the trading posts filled with an old-world charm.Never Despair is a nostalgic shop that stocks a good range of selective antiques, collectibles and gifts. New Found Out is a lovely jumble of colourful clothing, shoes and interesting accessories. Memory Hold-The-Door is a second-hand bookshop that will hold and entice you to sit down in front of the fireplace with a book on your lap. The coffee shop leads onto an outside patio and offers delicious homemade sweet-and savoury treats.Pet friendly - please enquire.

Quaint & quiet but well decorated in old "theme" decor. The town is safe and tranquil and all so friendly. Almost seemed like a welcome time-warp!
