I booked the venue last minute dot com and was so glad that I did. I recently lost my husband and felt that I needed to get away for some quiet and reflective time. Random Harvest was definitely the place to go. The seed bells hanging in the trees attracted such beautiful birds. I was able to sit on my little patio and enjoy the serenity of my surrounding whilst enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee. Oooooh yes and let me not forget to mention the fresh cream, milk and rusks that were delivered to my cottage. In addition, right outside my window was a paddock with cows. How often do you find that! Thank you Random Harvest for such a wonderful 2 days. The staff and accommodation exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be coming back - this time with my parents in tow xxx

The fully equipped kitchen did not have an oven, only a two plate stove so the food we took along had to be cooked in very creative way however, this did not deter much from our wonderful stay. The unit was spotless, the surrounds stunning. Our stay was a beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle and we didn’t have to travel far for this. We will definitely return.

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

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!
