WELCOME TO PAARDEPLAATS NATURE RETREAT – LYDENBURG!
We welcome you here as guests, and sincerely hope that you will return again in the future as good friends.
Paardeplaats has four en suite rooms, (2 double and 2 family) some with private patios, have unique views of the valley and the trout dam.
These rooms were all built on the original stone foundations of the three different mining ruins, linked with shady, stone pathways and lantern lit at night. All rooms have solar powered reading lamps, unaffected by Eskom power outages.
Bathrooms (3 showers and one bath) are all equipped with gas geysers, solar lights and cosy, oil burning lamps for ambiance.
Whether you are looking for peace and quiet, or solitude or “family therapy” in nature, whether you want to indulge in your hobby, albeit photography, birding, bugging or settling into a good book with a glass or two of your favourite red wine, this is the place to be!
Hiking and mountain biking for both the serious and not so serious is a popular pass-time on Paardeplaats.
Create a real “fun day”, while being in pristine nature, on Paardeplaats! We can arrange a “tractor & trailer picnic” for between 6 and 20 people, held at a choice of 4 different picnic spots, all with breathtakingly beautiful, panoramic views. These fun picnics are ideal for families, friends or team building exercises.
Saucy Chef Cookery Courses are aimed at those who enjoy fellowship and share a passion for food – not for food snobs or critics, but for people who derive pleasure and fun from the process of planning, preparing and presenting food, and of course, enjoying the pleasures and ambiance created around the table.
