We were booked for 2 nights midweek and the place lived up to everything it purports itself to be.The cottage we had,namely,the Mulberry cottage, was clean,neat and well stocked. Our pets were allowed and the courtesy extended to my wife and I was fantastic. Definately a place to RELAX. Security is excellent and staff is very friendly. 2 thumbs up to the owner. For once you get exactly what you pay for,with none of the hype. Thank you.....definate referral from us.

This is a gentle place. Non luxurious but very adequate. Our room was neat but perhaps in need of some care. The room had the basic necessities and was in a lovely relaxing place. I was a bit nervous of the isolation of the place especially when we returned in the evening. Breakfast was good and the price was very reasonable

After a very hectic time in Johannesburg and in need of a break Apricot Hill Farm proved to be a haven of peace and quiet. Our hostess Wendy made sure we had everything we needed in our comfortable self catering cottage. There are many activites to choose from in the area but all we needed was down time. After a couple of days we felt refreshed and ready to move on. Thank you, Wendy. When next in the area we'll definitely come by again.

We stayed at Apricot Hill Farm to see in the 2016 New Year. Wendy was a great host and her suggestions for places to see in the area was spot on. We had a great breakfast the first morning. Our cottage was in the secluded area at the end of the premises but not too far from the pretty gardens. The accommodation is wonderful and comfortable with crisp bedding which was welcome after a day's outing. Pricing was definitely value for money! We visited the Rhino and Lion Park and was hoping to see the Cradle of Humankind and Sterkfontein Caves but will do it on our next visit.
Will definitely be back!

My Housekeeper, animals and I needed 'temporary pet friendly' accommodation for the month of January, 2014 whilst waiting to move into a new home. On finding Apricot Hill, we were pleasantly surprised. Not only were the self-contained cottages comfortable, they were 'pet friendly' and reasonably priced as well. We arrived at Apricot Hill on the night of 31st December, 2013. Due to major complications, we are still, to date, May, 2015 (yes 17 months later) at Apricot Hill and remain perfectly happy and content. Wendy, the owner, goes above and beyond to ensure one's stay is pleasant and bends over backwards to help in whichever way she can. I run a 'business from home', and I have found the setting to be a peaceful, relaxing and a tranquil environment to work from. If you enjoy being in the country, Apricot Hill is the ideal choice especially if you are an animal lover and need your pets with you! I believe the extremely extended duration of our stay speaks volumes as to our satisfaction of a truly comfortable stay and we will be sorry to leave when the time comes to do so. I've loaded a photo of my 'home away from home' spacious, light, comfortable and pet friendly accommodation for the past 17 months. Dee Fourie

My husband and I had booked 2 nights in advance after visa business in Pretoria. The location was perfect, not least because of the wonderful peace and quiet. The bumpy road leading up to the farm was well worth negotiating! Wendy, the hostess, was extremely welcoming and friendly. Breakfast next morning was delicious and plentiful. We left feeling relaxed and replenished after 2 days' resting and sightseeing within 30 minutes or so of Apricot Hill. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone - we know that we'll be back!

Fantastically situated, if you need to be on the Krugersdorp / Muldersdrift side of Joburg, 5 minutes from the New Cradlestone Mall and the Silverstar Casino complex! Simple but comfortable rooms, great breakfasts provided by our delightful hostess Wendy! If you are looking for no frills value for money, then this is the place! We will definitely be back soon!

Another wonderful, relaxed week-end. Delicious food, comfortable and clean accommodation. In close proximity to Cradle of Humankind. Delicious breakfasts, lovely walks and very secure. We have booked for Easter, and look forward to another lovely break. Close to Silverstar Casino and several dining venues.

after needing a well deserved break away my partner and I found this lovely quaint bed and break fast called Apricot Hill farm in Muldersdrift. the room we stayed in we had our own private water feature where we had our own little braai area and bench that was so peaceful and isolated from every one else. they also have a big pool that we lazed around the whole weekend.
Wendy was so friendly and welcoming and the room was cozy and just perfect for the two of us.
we will most definately be going back there for a weekend break and we have referred all our friends there and they all just rave about apricot hill all the time.
