Brian Hyson – “We’ve revamped our offering, but our well known friendly hospitality and comfortable country accommodation continues unchanged.”
If privacy, peace and tranquility combined with personal and friendly attention are what you seek in self-catering accommodation, then 4 star Heuglins is ideal for you.
Set in country surroundings just 5 km out of White River on Sheffield Estate, Heuglins offers guests birding, fishing and swimming. Golfers can enjoy the adjacent White River Golf Course while cyclists and paddlers will revel in the surrounding plantations and dams.
Owners Brian and Frances have perfected the touch of warmly welcoming guests, ensuring that they have everything they need, then allowing them space and privacy to enjoy this charming corner of verdant tranquility. The garden is well wooded and rich in diversity with exceptional bird life – over 120 species have been recorded on Heuglins or the surrounding estate, some of which are rare and not often seen. The stately, aged trees attract a broad range of birdlife and guests enjoy waking up between crisp cotton sheets to the rippling chorus of songbirds.
There are five well-appointed and private cottages each with underfloor heating, a large shower and bath, ceiling fans and DStv. Brian and Frances sourced furniture and décor pieces from local furniture maker Hans van der Merwe and Son, while each cottage boasts a bespoke Esra Bosch ceramic name plate. Custom built kitchenettes fully equipped with a microwave are neatly concealed in a cupboard. Each cottage has a private outside area, complete with a Weber braai, toaster and convection hot plate so preparing your own meals is a doddle. The cottages are serviced and have WiFi and if you have a favourite bird, you can request to stay in Sunbird, Barbet, Hoopoe, Ibis or Wagtail. Children of all ages are very welcome but unfortunately, no pets are allowed.
The owners encourage people to feel at home in the extensive and lush gardens and are proud of the number of repeat bookings they get, putting it down to the peaceful, secure surroundings and absolute privacy they warmly provide. Guests quickly feel at home here.
Heuglins is the perfect get away for anyone looking for some quiet time in their private space. With Lowveld attractions such as the Kruger National Park and the Panorama Route less than an hour away, Heuglins provides a restful night’s sleep after an adventure filled day.
