Winter Specials at Budmarsh

011 728 1800

Winter is nature’s slumber; offering the natural world a rest period as it prepares for Spring. For Humankind, Winter is a time of long chilly nights, bare tree branches & icy frosts browning the grass… but, it can also be a time to exhale, relax and gather golden moments.

Leave the grey skies & foul air of the city behind, & escape to the winter wonderland of the Magaliesberg, where you can breathe in the crisp country air and enjoy the high blue skies and clear views. Winter is celebrated at Budmarsh with the warmth of a fire place, gourmet dining, Glühwein and steaming mugs of hot chocolate. For the intrepid novice fisherman, you may wish to try your luck at the Budmarsh dam.

We have a selection of Winter Special Packages to warm your soul whether it be for a leisure stay or corporate getaway.
