About Random Harvest Country Cottages

Set in Muldersdrift, Johannesburg on a gorgeous country retreat we offer you a uniquely central location whilst retaining an authentic country atmosphere. Our secure oasis of peace and tranquility will transport you to a magical world away from the busy life.

A small dairy herd provides fresh farm milk, cream and homemade butter. We also supply tea, filter coffee, sugar and home baked rusks for you each day. Our pride is reflected in the spotlessness of our cottages, and the high level of maintenance is mandatory and essential in making your visit as comfortable as if you were in your own home.

ACCOMMODATION

Our cottages will allow you to relax and rejuvenate in finely furnished comfort and a thrilling and beautiful environment. Plunge into your own luxurious bedroom, with soft pillows and fine linens. Enjoy the luxury of delightful bathrooms and revel in the privacy of sunset dining in your own indigenous garden. The smell of “braaivleis” amidst the country sounds of birds and animals is almost a forgotten fantasy for Local South Africans.

Bathrooms:
Lavender Tree Cottage has a bath and shower while Yellowwood Cottage only has a shower. Sagewood, Lemon Thorn, Wild Olive, Bushwillow and Rock Fig have full bathrooms with separate baths and showers. Sweet Thorn offers you the ultimate bathing experience with its lavish corner bath. In all our bathrooms you can expect superior quality towels, and a delightful bathroom box consisting of soap, hand cream, shampoo, shower cap, and other helpful necessities.

Kitchens:
Excluding Wild Olive and Rock Fig, all the cottages have kitchens that are fully equipped including a microwave. They are provided with fresh farm milk, homemade butter and cream daily. We also top up the filter coffee, tea, sugar and rusks daily. Wild Olive and Rock Fig have only a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities including the fresh farm milk etc. All cottages include braai (BBQ) facilities, and we will provide the charcoal and prepare the fire, if, it be your wish.

The Bedroom and Lounge:
All cottages include comfy beds with fine mattresses and quality linens. Each cottage has a unique style of décor and soft furnishings. Lavender Tree is our biggest, and has a large bedroom for two as well as a comfortable day bed in the lounge area for another person.

Wild Olive and Sweet Thorn Cottages offer an interleading door, as do Bushwillow and Rock Fig for larger families. Sagewood, Bushwillow and Wild Olive Cottages are wheelchair friendly. DSTV is strategically placed in each cottage, lest we forget about our sports enthusiasts or Movie Lovers.

Outside the Cottages:
Patios give way to private indigenous gardens and melodious sounds of nature. Sit, braai, but mostly enjoy the peace and tranquility as they seep into your soul.

SERVICE

Relaxation is of utmost importance, and your cottage is fully serviced by our friendly, trustworthy staff. Keeping you safe is 24 hour security with access control.

FAMILY FRIENDLY

For our family lovers, we offer the perfect children’s haven - Milking time is a favourite and who can resist the creatures, calves, chickens and geese that run free on the farm?

BREAKFAST & DINING

Breakfast and light lunches are served at the Waterlily Tea Garden, or alternatively meals can be delivered to your cottage. For restaurant lovers there are top class restaurants within a five kilometer radius. Choices include the famous Casalinga Italian Restaurant and the more family orientated Alfresco Restaurant.

THE FARM

Random Harvest Farm has been our home for 36 years. It boasts 21ha and has vast numbers of mature indigenous trees, although there are still a few exotics such as 100 year old oaks.

Our Italian heritage embraces the importance of having our own fresh produce and thus we have our own cows, chickens, fruit and vegetables. Our family believes in bottling, preserving and making sure that none of the “good stuff” goes to waste.

Geese wander freely in the nursery where they help to keep weeds and pesky annual grasses down. A stroll will lead you to the sweet blackcurrant eyed calves that children love so much, and a little further on are our graceful cows. Dare to daydream again as you watch our farmyard splendor! A fascinating dance of birds, butterflies and insects with their plant partners will enchant your senses as relaxation begins to set in.

Activities on the farm: The most important activity is to relax and enjoy our magic! For the more energetic, there’s walking, bird watching and learning about our amazing plants from the interesting information boards in the retail nursery. If you have children take them to watch the cows being milked or to play in the sandpit.

Verified reviewvery good

The stay was very pleasant. I visited the area looking for rest away from the busy city. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a place just within an hour of where I stay where I can be at total peace surrounded by goats, horses and cows grazing lazily. The fresh milk and cream I got daily straight from the cows and the surrounding vegetation where I took my slow jogs where just what my soul needed. The cherry on top was the scrumptious rusks that were brought to the cottage daily. The friendly staff are what will make me go back to this lovely place

Verified reviewexcellent

We have stayed at Random Harvest four times mostly for long periods. The cottages are perfect and cater for our every need. The House Keeping staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The property is child friendly and safe. My son was able to run around and experience life on a farm with lots of space. The staff at the nursery and cafe are fabulous, friendly and warm. The food at the Waterliy Tea Garden is delicious. We enjoy being in Johannesburg but as Random Harvest is surrounded by indigenous plants and you can hear birds in the trees you do not feel like you are in Johannesburg. This is our home away from home!
