The hosts Kerri and Peta are extremely friendly and hospitable. The venue is peaceful and tranquil. A place to recharge oneself and take in the beauty. Thank you so much.

Great place to stay and well situated if you want to do some touring in the Midlands.

Simply stunning, peaceful & tranquil
- Kim Delport

Lovely little self catering place, perfect for 2 people looking for reasonably priced accommodation in the Midlands. Not far from Karkloof nature reserve and Curry's Post and the Midlands Meander. It is convenient, safe and clean, with friendly service.
- Gizela Van Der Sandt

I would actually give a 100 % rate to the Gum Tree Glen. The owners were very, very helpful, very friendly & very accommodating to us as family. We were very impressed and the beautiful accommodation & modern furnishings and I'm very impressed with the hospitality. We've never gone anywhere where the fridge was filled with the most essential foodstuffs for the week-end, e.g. Milk, eggs, loaf of bread, butter, jam, tea, coffee (plus perculated coffee), sugar, rusks & biscuits. The whole setting was tranquil, peaceful & beautiful. I think one would miss a pool in summer but our week-end was nice & cool and misty, so we didn't miss it. Overall I would recommend this stay to anybody. We truly enjoyed it very, very much.
