About The Pennefather

The Pennefather is situated within walking distance to shops and restaurants in Haenertsburg Village, and a great base from which to explore the surrounding areas of Magoebaskloof. Re-live the atmosphere of a bygone era, with grandma's bread pans, the gold miner's tools and old books that tell tales of old times. 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.

          Better insulation below the floor and in the ceiling? Quite chilly, but not too bad. Wanted to buy extra firewood as per instructions but none available.

          The Pennefather was great.The Haenertsburg Spring Festival however was a disappointment.

          We had a wonderful and memorable stay in the Prester John cottage at The Pennefather. Stay there again? Absolutely! Haenertsburg and the surrounding area is a must to visit.

          The reception is to be found in the attached bookshop cum cafe. The prefab houses are spacious enough, each with a carport. Just wondering why the bathroom is so tiny?Several eating venues are just down the road, as is the local supermarket and a nice coffee shop.
