Venessa McTaggart: “May all who come as guests leave as friends”
Stepping into Nut Grove Manor is to step back in time, to a place where style, tranquility, elegance and tasteful luxury were the norm. Subtropical, lushly landscaped gardens entice guests to perambulate the extensive property, breathing in the rich scents and peaceful surrounds.
Tucked away behind walls redolent with history dating back to 1924, and overlooking a lush macadamia plantation, it’s easy to forget the hurly burly world without and impossible to tell that White River is just outside the manor boundaries. Guests are just minutes away from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, the bustling city of Mbombela (Nelspruit) and a short drive from the world famous Kruger National Park.
Nut Grove Manor offers first class accommodation in a historical colonial country setting. The owners pride themselves on their exceptional service and meeting every guest’s expectations. And besides offering superb accommodation, it is available as a venue hire. As Venessa says, Nut Grove is “a hidden gem of sophistication and elegance at its best.”
The gardens are the perfect setting for, picnics, fairs, exhibitions, photographic excursions, high teas, luncheons and, of course, weddings. The fairy tale ambiance and unrivaled personalised service create a charming place to spend some special moments.
