The Prynnsberg Estate

From R350 PPS

 

Overview

The Prynnsberg Estate is one of the Eastern Free State's most famous properties and is situated just outside Clocolan on the R26. The Estate was established in 1881 by Kimberly diamond magnate Charles Newberry.



Prynnsberg Manor

The colourful history of Prynnsberg Manor - it's grand foundation, it's decline and eventual save from ruin - is well documented. Partially renovated - but glorious all the same- Prynnsberg is a strictly private estate and is there not open to walk in visitors. The eclectically appointed Manor house and Arran (the original game keepers lodge) can be booked by prior arrangement with either self catering ( full household staff and cook in residence) or fully catered options.

Prynnsberg Manor takes a maximum of 20 adults in accommodation ranging from the spectacular (see the Boudoir) to the unusual (when last did you sleep on an upstairs veranda with the Southern Cross as your ceiling ?). From the beautifully restored to 'work in progress'.

Described in architectural circles as 'the jewel of the Eastern Free State, Prynnsberg manor boasts a billiard room described by Stephan Weltz as "the most beautiful room in South Africa, an outdoor cinema, a Victorian bath house (the Manor was built before ensuite bathrooms became the norm) and magnificent Gardens with two swimming pools.
Arran - The Game Keepers Lodge

Arran - sleeping a max of four adults - nestles up against the mountain above the Manor house and enjoys spectacular views. Arran is fully renovated and exceedingly well appointed.

Prynnsberg is ideal for classic country house weekends with family and friends, corporate or creative retreats and workshops.

A spectacular deck under a vast sandstone overhang, with commanding views over the Freestate, a place once inhabited by the Bushman. Next to the deck is the modern Bushmans bathhouse, 4 Victorian baths on a platform fired by a donkey boiler - a good place to share a bottle of scotch with or mates under the stars. Sleep either on the deck or in Victorian safari tents erected alongside the deck
