Dear Jady,

RE : SHAUN & TANYA’S WEDDING – 7 March 2020

I have no words, thanking you for your friendly hospitality during our stay at Cheerio Trout Fishing & Holiday Resort . We would have not imagined a more perfect accommodation.

The farm is absolutely breath taking beautiful and we had the most amazing time getting ready for the wedding.

Jady, may your magical venue continue bringing love and joy to everyone who visit Cheerio Trout Fishing & Holiday Resort. We will always have special memories.

Our sincere thanks and please stay safe.

This was our second visit to Cheerio. We stayed in the Forrest cottage with our 2 toddlers and had a fantastic time! Strolls through the luscious forest, expecting fairies to jump out at any moment, fishing, playing on the jungle gym and running around on the lawns - all wonderful memories. Also loved the breathtaking view from the main bedroom - felt like we could stay forever. Will definitely go back. Visited Debengeni waterfall which was beyond amazing, couldn't believe that there is such a stunning landmark in our country and no one has ever told me about it!

MAY 2014:  "Gerieflike verblyf in 'n baie mooi omgewing. Die chalet is goed toegerus en netjies en die diens is vriendelike en die omgewing is baie mooi".

DECEMBER 2014:  "Stone Cottage was a step back into time, yet modern and comfortable. I will suggest accommodation here highly! You are tucked away in the mountains and once the sun starts rising in the morning you are able to see the mist hovering over them, beautiful! No noise or hustle and bustle like in JHB, so a great break away".

JANUARY 2015:  "Paul's Cottage - a hidden gem. Perfect retreat away from the buzz and fuss of Johannesburg. And the weather was just what we wanted, rainy and cool. Clean and private place, nice atmosphere and friendly people. Definitely coming back again!"

FEBRUARY 2015:  "Forest Cottage - Magical.  We had a magical stay at Cheerio Trout Fishing & Holiday Resort - beautiful scenery with stunning walking trails and fully equipped self service units. Highly recommended. Very quick and easy, sufficient reservation".

FEBRUARY 2015:  "Waratah, Stone and Rainbow Cottages - Home away from home. Cheerio Trout Fishing & Holiday Resort makes for a very comfortable, friendly and convenient home-away-from-home when business takes me to the Magoebaskloof area. I have made us of the resort several times now, and hope to do so again in the future"

MARCH 2015:  "Forest Cottage - Loved the weekend away in a forest. The whole family found the weekend wonderful and restful.  Kids could ride around on their bikes and we had a beautiful view of the forest, birds and animal life that goes with it. Good value for money"

FOREST COTTAGE:  "Thumbs up! Our family really enjoyed our stay at Cheerio Trout Fishing and Holiday Resort. The facilities were excellent, the views from our cabin were spectacular and the staff at Cheerio were very helpful. We will definitely recommend Cheerio Resort to our friends and family. Thanks for the fresh flowers in the rooms".

MOUNTAIN VIEW COTTAGE:  "Fabulous, comfortable place to relax. Our whole family enjoyed the stay at Cheerio very much. The dams and gardens are stunning and there are great paths to walk and just enjoy the beauty and fresh air. The cottage kitchen is very well equipped (the best I have ever seen), there are lovely electric blankets on all the beds, nice soft towels, the water is hot instantly and the fireplace with complimentary wood is great. I give Cheerio a well deserved 5 star rating and would love to go back for a longer stay one day. The surrounding area is also lovely and Haenertsburg with it's classic style and atmosphere is just 3km away. We had no problems using the road leading to Cheerio in our small sedan. Thanks for a great stay and your hospitality.

Dis 'n pragtige plek, mooiste natuurskoon. Yskoud, maar warm kaggel.

Dis 'n idilliese plekkie. Gasvry. Daar is soveel mooi om te sien en te waardeer. Vir seker 'n stukkie juweel.
