Pretty average venue, nothing too special. Great watching the glass blower making his wares and few good Stolls.

A pleasure to look at. Nice touch to have the artist on site working and creating. A bit expensive but unique creations.

Brilliant little gem roughly 25 minutes travel from North cliff/JHB Northern suburbs. Just confirm that Food stalls and product stalls are on site. Brilliant handcrafted gifts, ranging from necklaces, leather goods, pet spoils, to handcrafted chocolates, jams, original Canvas oil and acrylic paintings. Etc etc etc. Either buy something to eat at the speciality food stalls, ranging from craft bread gourmet sandwiches, pastries and traditional Indian Samoosas. Or sit down at one of the eateries/coffee shops. Worth a visit, and HUGE CHEER and THUMBS up, it is Pet friendly, as long as poochie is well behaved, not aggressive and on their leash. Excellent hand crafted Internationally renowned Glass Factory on site. A nice laid back Platteland/Farm atmosphere.

We have been to the Ngwenya Village a few Times over the years, and usually have a great time. Sadly a bit disappointed this time.
Had lunch at Gilroys - ordered Eisbine - it was delicious, but no accompanying sauerkraut. Only after our asking about it did we get told that sauerkraut wasn't available that day, and received an extremely small portion of mixed vegetables as an alternative. (Not fresh vegetables - prefrozen).
Bought a Wedding gift at Ngwenya Glass, which we had engraved. Collection arranged and confirmed for the following week. *Firstly, it wasn't ready. * Then, the engraved date was wrong. (Thankfully opened the well wrapped gift before leaving the village).
Rather disappointed - not sure whether we'll bother to visit again in a hurry.

With a wonderful selection of food and home product stalls plus a great restaurant and a brewery it is an excellent place to visit. The fish & chips at Glenroy pub was outstanding, and the Eisbein enough for a few days. Good quality locally brewed beers and fantastic afternoon of music, singing and entertainment. We had a ball.

The glass factory is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed watching a very talented glass blower show off his skills. The mini stalls were great and reasonably priced and we loved our lunch.

Loved this place , it was pleasant and relaxing . The shops are great and the people are frequently.

A bit of a shame that the place is so small . It is worth the visit

Ngwenya has a small shop with beautiful glassware at good prices

They have a couple of shops around the perimeter with a market on specific days

I had breakfast at Barefoot kitchen, that offers the option to make up your own meal if you don't feel like having anything specific from the menu

Service is friendly, there was a couple of reworks when it came to the bill but was sorted out

Amazing glass factory if you looking for a present ornaments and even to get a broken glass vase fixed. Watching a demonstration of glass flowers being made was fascinating. Recommended.
