from R 2,320 - 2,320
Mount Serene is situated on the slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountains, about 30 kilometre from the town of Magaliesburg on the R24; less than 100 kilometre from Johannesburg or Pretoria. <br /><br />There is no TV. We are no longer pet friendly.There are two options available; a secluded stone cottage, which sleeps two, perfect for a romantic getaway or a converted railway coach, which sleeps eight, great for the family. <br /><br />The units are very well separated to ensure absolute privacy of guests at all times. Each unit has its own sparkling mineral-water splash pool and braai area. All units have an indoor log fireplace for those chilly winter evenings, although temperatures here seldom fall below +6 degree C. Whether you choose to relax at the pool side, walk to the mountain plateau, explore iron-age ruins, hike to the top of the Magaliesberg mountains or identify some of the 300 species of birds found in the area, you are guaranteed a peaceful break from the city life. <br /><br />There are many recreational and sporting facilities close by, including game drives, horse riding, trout fishing, golf, tennis, quad biking, magalies meander and hot air ballooning to name but a few.<br /><br />Mount Serene provides tranquil self catering units, fully equipped including a private splash pool, braai and indoor fire place.

"The coach is really something impressive and the kids loved it. Spacious with a private splash pool, patio area with braai facilities and functional kitchen. Couldn't ask for more if you just want some private R&R"

"As you would expect from a train- the passage is narrow, but it is surprisingly roomy! The kitchen is well equipped, only thing lacking is an oven- but one gets by without a hitch. I loved it- the quality of the wood that these trains were build from is stunning. Would really recommend it for a fun weekend away. Don't expect an ordinary holiday"
"The privacy of the cottage was amazing - loved the fireplace."
