Petra's Country Guesthouse is affordable self-catering accommodation, situated on a farm. The guest house is a historic Victorian sandstone homestead in the Skurweberg Valley, only 9 km from Vryheid.We offer comfortable fully equipped units, hosting up to 45 guests. There are rooms available for singles, couples or groups. There are beautiful mountain views, clean air and fresh spring water. Continental and Farmers breakfasts can be arranged on request.Fundamentally a coal mining and beef farming town, Vryheid lies roughly 70 km northeast of Dundee in Zululand. Whilst Vryheids surrounds are largely dominated by timber farming and crops such as groundnuts and maize, the town also lies near the sources of four major rivers named the White and Black Umfolozi, Mkhuze and Pongolo.Access to the wetlands in the area are thus good, and some of them are of regional importance, which is of added benefit to birdwatchers and provides a diversity of scenery for hikers to the area, coupled with the added value of several nature reserves.

"I have stayed well enjoying, having freedom and piece of mind. I could be pleased if you can maybe fix the road, which is coming to Petra's house, cz if it is raining is a big problem to drive through. Thank you so much I'm gonna arrange and book again. We also enjoyed to see different animals."

"Ons het net vir een aand gebly, maar wens ons kon nog kuier. Baie mooi uitsig en lekker rustig. Die kleinding het baie plek gehad om te speel na die lang stil sit. Die huisie was baie skoon en netjies. Gaan verseker weer n draai maak."
"The silence and stars in the sky at night."

"I booked two evenings for me and my girlfriend, but, unfortunately, when we got there the cottage I booked was already taken. There must have been a miscommunication or something. We were then given a larger room; so we actually gained through this mishap. The room we ended up having was spacious with a full kitchen and a TV with a complete DStv bouquet. The rooms and the bathroom were also kept clean and inviting. The atmosphere of the farm was so calming, and the view of the beautiful hillside really lets one's nerves at ease. It's also close enough to Vryheid if you'd want to quickly go grab something to eat or drink, but far enough that you can appreciate the stillness and tranquillity of the surrounding farmland. All in all I'm a bit disappointed at the double booking, but I am more than happy to go back again. We really had a pleasant stay. If you don't mind the odd rooster giving you a wakeup call, I would recommend this as a wonderful destination."
