About Peppertree House

Named after a majestic Pepper tree which was over hundred years old and once served to provide shade for visitors’ horses we offer our guests comfortable accommodation in tranquil surroundings. We strive to provide excellent service and warm hospitality to make your stay as pleasant and memorable as possible.


Peppertree House offers both B&B and self-catering accommodation in a Victorian style home and 5 recently renovated and comfortable cottages.

The Main House
Accommodation in the main house consists of two double en-suite rooms and one twin bed room. With their glowing wooden floors and homely atmosphere the rooms offer nothing but a comfortable stay. Each of the rooms has a bar fridge, television, heaters for the winter, fans for the summer, mosquito machines for the mozzie infested times of year and tea and coffee facilities.

The Cottage
The self-catering accommodation consists of five cottages. Three of the units can sleep two persons (double beds or sinlges) comfortably. One of the units sleeps two persons and there is a sleeper couch which can cater for a third person if needed. The fifth cottage is a double story and can sleep four persons (double beds or singles).

Each of the cottages has an en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette equipped with all you might need to cook a tasty meal or make a midnight snack, select DStfv channels, fans, heaters, and mosquito machines. Our cottages are welcoming and, along with the large garden and braai facilities, offer you a home-from-home.
