Granny Dots Country Spot is your home-away-from-home, situated in the beautiful Agatha countryside, with majestic views of the Wolkberg Mountain Range. Here, you can relax and unwind in a rustic, tranquil and tropical environment, whilst enjoying our abundant and prolific bird and animal life. Or you could just relax and read at our cozy fireplace or private swimming pool. We provide farm-style breakfasts and delicious, home-cooked dinners - served in our quaint dining area. We offer self-catering options for large and small groups, and we are the ideal family destination. Granny Dots is ideally situated, just 15 minutes from Tzaneen central in an area that boasts an abundance of outdoor activities: canopy tours, mountain biking; horse riding; hiking trails; boat rides; nature walks; birding ... There is so much to see and do in this area. Granny Dots Country Spot is a mere 90 min drive from the famed Kruger National Park and a stone's throw from the ancient Modjadji Cycad Forests. We are children- & pet-friendly too!

The drive to Granny Dot's is beautiful but I recommend driving a 4x4 vehicle or an all wheel drive vehicle. Granny Dot's is in the middle of avocado plantations on a mountain. The view is breathtaking is all types of weather. The owner, Helena, made us feel comfortable and welcomed. We stayed in a family room which was stylish and clean. There is a communal area for tea, coffee, hot chocolate and other drinks. There is a fridge with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for guests to purchase. We had breakfast and dinner at the Country Spot. Their chef, Odyssey, is excellent. Dinner consisted of a main course and a dessert. The chef would offer a selection of dishes from which we could choose. We were never disappointed. The portions of both meals are large and sufficient to sustain guests on two meals a day if you so wish. We are definitely going back! I highly recommend staying at Granny Dot's.

From 19 to 20 September 2022 we stayed one night at this very beautiful location. The owners, the manager and the lady from the kitchen did everything to make us feel comfortable and help us find our way. A one night stay is too short for this stunningly beautiful location with great food and good wine. Highly recommended for anyone visiting South Africa.

What a wonderful getaway , the rooms were neat and tidy and attention to detail was amazing. The hosts were absolutely amazing from the welcome right up till time of departure. The self catering cottage was well equipped and luxurious. The views from our cottage were stunning and we enjoyed walking and exploring the surrounding avocado and Blue gum plantations. A big shout out to Odessey the resident Chef who prepared and served absolutely delicious and scrumptious food. Also to Godfrey for starting and keeping the fire burning in our cottage during the duration of our stay
Overall a truly magical and enjoyable weekend , we will be back !!!

We slept one night at Granny Dot's on the 28/05/2022 and enjoyed dinner & breakfast.

The hospitality and welcoming by Odyssey, the food that he and his wife prepared and the level of service experienced was absolutely world-class and super enjoyable. I highly recommend this facility in Tzaneen. Beautiful scenery!

Three of us have just spent a fantastic night at Granny Dot's . Charming Estelle welcomed us and showed us around the beautiful lodge. The views are breathtaking and the attraction to detail is fantastic. Our dinner (pork neck and veggies) was excellent. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was 5 star. Thank you very much Estelle and your staff for making us feel so at home...Will definitely recommend Granny Dot's to anyone passing through the Tzaneen area.

My wifen and I hiked the nearby Rooikat trail and got a little bit lost so we ended up doing 32km for the day. Quite an adventure (we are both over 60) but no regrets. Granny Dots prepared a lovely take-away breakfast for us and this sustained us for the whole day until 6PM when we eventually got back to our car at the trail head.

Excellent place to stay. Rooms large and clean. Amazing, personal service and attention. Lovely setting. Superb breakfast (was not able to sample dinner unfortunately). Special mention to Odyssey, the manager - he made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks Helena and Estelle - we will definitely choose Granny Dot's when next in the Tzaneen area and will certainly recommend to others.
