Overview

Set in Cosmos countryside and tranquil farmlands an hour south of Johannesburg, lies the magnificent Welgelegen Manor, built by South Africa’s iconic architect, Sir Herbert Baker in 1912. Steeped in romance and history, Welgelegen recalls the legendary Groote Schuur Estate in the Cape on which the design was based. Welgelegen Manor has been magnificently restored to its former glory and offers the perfect getaway for a country house weekend. Combining 19th century old-world charm with modern hotel luxury and an inspired example of the Arts and Crafts movement. Beautiful teak doors, marble and granite floors, gleaming woodwork and brass work are testament to the craftsmen of a bygone era.  A sense of peace and tranquillity greets you on arrival, echoing through the reception rooms to the more than spacious suites. Staying true to its English residential style, the eight suites fuse contemporary comfort with the timeless glamour and heritage associated with this historical property. Each suite offers exceptional grace and comfort with views over the landscaped terraces, pool or rose gardens.  Country life is synonymous with good food and the resident chef conjures up daily treats from breakfast to dinner. Savour an English country afternoon tea. Enjoy the abundant birdlife in the extensive surrounds, relax with a book in the rose gardens or at the pool, and play a game of lawn tennis or croquet.  Challenge your partner to pool, billiards or snooker in the Billiard Room, or cards and board games in the library or games room. For movie buffs there is a dedicated ‘theatre’ with wide-screen. And for the more active there are country walks, archery, and a well-maintained grass strip for fly-in visits. Welgelegen lends itself to special occasions and exclusive board meetings. Ideal wedding venue.  TGCSA 5-Star Country House | Children 12+ welcome | Weddings | Conferences | Complimentary Wi-Fi.
