Randburg, South Africa1 contribution

Our first escape away from the hustle and bustle of 2020; we couldn't have been more grateful for discovering Blue Roan Country lodge!
The ability to break away from the city and enjoy the privilege of bringing our dogs' with on our stay made for a blissful four-night indulgence.
With a warm welcome, we were efficiently orientated around the property's facilities. Our pets were safe at all times, enjoying their own little fenced patch of lawn, which opened onto a larger "dog park" for quick strolls, from where the longer walk trails could be accessed; they had the best time ever!
Our Mexican Loft unit provided for the most comfortable sleep and the delight of having a spa-bath indulgence right before slipping off to dreamland was sublime. Our kitchen and longe provided for all our cooking and relaxing needs, and Judy's kind and considerate provisions ensured we lacked for nothing.
We needed peace and quiet, and our stay was blessed with plenty; sundowners next to the braai listening to crackling wood and crickets as the moon rose, napping in a hammock gently rocked by lazy afternoon breezes, dawn walks with the dogs, brunch picnics along the walk trails, and cuddling to the sound of the wind in the trees are just some of the highlights of our overall brilliant experience.
Thanks to the excellent value for money, we'll be treating ourselves and our dogs to another restorative breakaway together at the Blue Roan Country Lodge as soon as possible.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Blue Roan and got exactly what I was looking for, relaxation and recuperation. Judy was very friendly and highly responsive from the minute I made contact. I stayed in the Tuscan suite which was really so comfortable, from the fully functional kitchen to the open shower and jacuzzi bath, and finally to the comfortable king size bed. Judy has over 200 DVDs to choose from if you're looking for a quiet night in. The pool is great for warmer days, and the games room for socialising. The grounds are very peaceful. You can read a book while lazing on the hammock, or find pleasure in watching the beautiful horses explore the grounds. There are lovely restaurants nearby, a mere 10-15 minute drive depending where you are going, and the drive to theses places is also very peaceful and scenic. All in all I had a wonderful and peaceful stay at The Blue Roan. Thank you Judy!

Our hostess Judy met us on arrival and showed us to our chalet. She was charming friendly and welcoming. She had put up a big "Congratulations" Banner across the breakfast bar. Made a 40 out of rose petals and arranged a beautiful bouquet of roses from her garden on the work surface. She had also left for us a lovely bottle of bubbly. Throughout our stay her and Bryan were most attentive to our needs. The property is a large one and has really lovely well marked walks of varying difficulty, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the surroundings, which was exactly what we needed. We also loved their two horses and happy and friendly dogs. This is our second visit to Blue Roan Country lodge and definitely not the last. Many thanks Judy and Bryan for making this a home from home experience. Lots of love Frank and Greer Millman.

What a lovely surprise! - to be able to relax so completely just outside of the city. The fact that each unit was enclosed, made us feel safe with our dog - she also enjoyed the communal area as well as walks in the surrounding area.
The owners made us feel right at home, with attentive care to detail.
We really enjoyed this delightful stay.

We had another fantastic stay at Blue Roan in February 2020. Its the perfect getaway for couples, and we love that our dogs can come with us. They LOVE the freedom, space and outdoors, and we love that they're with us and safe, with an enclosed garden, The Acacia cottage is comfy, perfectly stocked and a home away from home. Judy is a wonderful host, readily available ensuring that every needs is met. This is our second stay, and we'll definitely be back!

Great get-away with doggies. Each lodge is nicely fenced. There is also larger well fenced areas for the dogs to run off leash. Our dogs loved it. The scenery is stunning. You can see the Magaliesberg while drinking coffee or braaing on the stoep. The hosts paid a lot of attention to detail. The lodge has everything you need. Dog bowls are also provided. I also enjoyed the DVD facilities. The hosts are very friendly. We highly recommend.

We went to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary and needed a place that was affordable as times had been hard for sometime and we just wanted to get away just the two of us. The accommodation was so amazing just what we needed to recharge our batteries and just be. Judy and Brian where amazing and made our stay so comfortable. The only tip I can give was that as a horse lover I would have loved a week-end where I could wake up in the morning and see the horses or even ride. I think bringing back the horses will be a big plus to staying at Blue Roan.

This was our first visit to Blue Roan together with our doggos. We stayed in The Barn, a well appointed and fully equipped cottage. Whilst it was cold out, the roaring fire in our indoor fireplace kept us cozy and warm. The cottages are all secured with own enclosures to keep the dogs safe. We went for frequent walks on the well kept dog paths. Judy and Bryan went the extra mile to ensure that we were well taken care off. All in all we had the most enjoyable and relaxed long weekend.

Hi, what activities do you have?
Answer from Judy G

Hello and thanks for the enquiry. The farm itself is very peaceful and has a swimming pool, nice views and walks. However there is a lot to do in the general area and if you search activities in Magaliesburg, you should see a nice selection. As we are only 5 minutes on a tar road from the village itself, it is easy to get to town and take advantage of the many spas and restaurants and places of interest.
