Ek wil net baie dankie se vir jul gasvryheid vir die 2 yskoue daggies daar by julle. Dit is verseker 2 dae wat ons nie vinnig sal vergeet nie.
Ons het vreeslik lekker gebly en ook die vreeslike mooi uitsig van die plaas geniet.
Ons sal verseker weer kom kuier en hopelik vir n paar dae langer.

Thank you very much for arranging lunch for us on Sunday.
We had the BEST Giant Burgers EVER!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent over lunch at Penwarn.


“Rough road to piece of heaven”

Beautiful place with excellent walks and birding. Vulture restaurant interesting extra! Bowman the chef and his ladies went the extra mile. A place where you can really relax and chill out. Management very helpful. We will definitely return. Mtini self catering lodge looked and excellent option.

We had a great stay at Penwarn Country Lodge (The Log Cabin). It was so relaxing up on the hill with beautiful views and no one around. Lots of time to do nothing at all and just enjoy the quiet. The Log Cabin might not be every city slickers taste – we loved it though not having electricity (there is solar energy available for the fridge and a light if you really must) and only using the lamps and fire place to light the cabin. I would definitely suggest going on horseback around the lodge. All the staff are very friendly and attentive and happy to make suggestions/recommendations. We enjoyed our stay at Penwarn very much and definitely recommend it to those who enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.

Back again, wonder why? Very relaxing and lovely to see the snow!

“God’s country”

Quite the most magical place to stay with excellent accommodation, friendly and knowledgeable staff and what must be one of the finest horse studs in South Africa. The setting of majestic vies of the Drakensberg combined with a wonderful showing of some of the finest horses and wild game makes this a must for serious travellers in Kwazulu Natal.

“Wow! Fantastic stay!”

Robyn – SA – “Wonderful Stay. Good laughs, good memories”
Maritz Family – Hillcrest – “Wonderful setting, friendly staff. Beautiful horses.


What a fabulous place – 20km from Underberg – we made it comfortably in a Chevrolet Spark! 360 degree mountain panorama, just the best place ever to unwind. Can’t recommend it enough – enjoy!”

Great Hospitality!
The location is very peaceful. We spent 4 very relaxing days at penwarn Country Lodge. The hospitality, the service and the food are excellent.


A couple of weeks ago Anton and I visited Penwarn Trout and Equine Estate. We stayed at Kudu. Kudu is well equipped and we had everything we needed. The view is absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed the Shire horses and cute Donkeys grazing in front of Kudu. Hubby also enjoyed trout fishing. We had a lovely time just walking up to the horses.

We got stuck in the mud as it was raining and a friendly black guy (unfortunately we forgot his name), came to help us. A special thanks to him. Anton and I really enjoyed using the Winch for the first time!!! Also thank you to the tree for her help, we had fun.

Thank you for a wonderful outride with the horses, we enjoyed the scenic view and all the wild life.

Just a special thanks to Cherrie and Ruben for their hospitality, friendliness and awesome late night conversations, you guys really made us feel welcome and we are looking forward to visit the lodge again. We really enjoyed it. Thanks to the cook for his/her mouth watering dinners, the food was really lovely. Thanks to all the staff at Penwarn, you guys are awesome.
