  • "Best accommodation"

    08 January 2013

    "Wetlands country house and sheds offers beautiful accommodation in a lovely area. The rooms are spacious, clean and exquisitely furnished. Every evening I got back there was a nice flask of sherry on the table and the fireplace was packed. Lots of attention to detail is what makes Wetlands such a lovely place. Breakfasts were five star, old-style country cuisine that was absolutely unbeatable. Every detail, down to the selection of preserves to enjoy with your toast was exquisite. The blueberry jam is out of this world. The hosts are very friendly and professional. I will gladly refer my family or best friends to Wetlands, should they wish to stay in Wakkerstroom."
