When one holds a social event like a braai or a party, things sometimes go wrong. Whether it’s the guest who shows up with only one beer, the cat that causes everyone to have monstrous allergic reactions or that sound system that sometimes works, there’s nothing worse than that awkward silence that means one thing: this isn’t fun. Treat your friends or family to some real fun with a two-night stay for two to ten people in a self-catering house at Glenaden Farm in Dullstroom for R3600 with Bossi Adventures.
Whisk your best buddies away for a fun-filled night out of the concrete jungle and into the country-esque charm of Glenaden. Situated in a picturesque valley about 23km from Dullstroom, lies a gorgeous 50-hectare farm called Glenaden, bordering the Dorps River. The sweeping lands are home to just two gorgeous houses, one of which you’ll be spending your night in. Each cosy crib is self-catering, serviced twice a day and boasts its own dam – nothing says fabulous like having your own bass-filled dam.
Depending on how many friends you grace with this invitation, you’ll take up residence in either Aden House or Glen House. Sleeping up to ten lucky souls, the four-bedroomed Aden House is a gorgeous slice of understated elegance; boasting a stone fireplace, two bathrooms, a lounge, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, scullery and a completely necessary little bar, Aden House is a light and delightful self-catering house that’ll put you on the top of everyone’s ‘best friend’ list. Glen house is just as deliciously decked-out but sleeps six to eight people – two of which will take up residence on the deliciously dream-inducing sleeper couch.
Whether you take this time to laze around with a good book, drink beer in the sunshine or fish for Rainbow Trout in your private damn – enjoy a gorgeous and sinfully private country-style experience – without the banjo-strumming “she left me for my best friend and took my prize cow” kind of vibe of course.
Check out fact: A hotel in Eastern Europe is made entirely out of Christmas cards. To keep the structure from toppling, there are no windows and guests have to ring a bell that’s situated on the corner of the street.
