Getaway Summary
PRICE (pp sharing):
from R 250 - 360
Puschka is an organic farm situated in the beautiful Naauwpoort Valley, in the foothills of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountain Range, with the Hex River winding its way through the valley and farm. The farm offers two lovely self-catering units; Puschka House and Puschka Cottage. They are ideal for romantic couples, families and friendly get-togethers.<br /><br />Puschka Cottage is nestled in the bush on the side of a hill and has its own swimming pool. Perfect for a romantic getaway for two people or for a family of six, this thatched cottage has a large living room with a fireplace kitchen, a shared full bathroom and a separate toilet. Three bedrooms lead off to a small sitting area with an anthracite stove for winter evenings, as well as a TV with DStv and a DVD player. Guests can enjoy a lovely braai outside and cool down in the large swimming pool.<br /><br />Puschka House is located on the opposite side of the river, amongst large gum trees giving it a typical South African farmhouse feel. Slightly bigger, the house can sleep a family or a group of eight people. The four bedrooms lead to the living area and share two bathrooms and a separate toilet. The large living and dining area has a fireplace and is equipped with a TV with DStv and a DVD player. The large kitchen has a wood burning stove for cold winter nights. Guests can relax on the stoep while enjoying a braai or cool down in the plunge pool. Please note that pets are not allowed and cell phone reception is poor.<br /><br />While visiting Puschka Farm, why not climb up to the top of the hill for incredible views and sunsets or enjoy activities like horse riding and tree hopping on a Canopy Tour. Guests can enjoy a special dinner at the famous Mount Grace Hotel. For birdwatchers, the farm has a prolific bird life and you may even offer the chance to see some of the local game such as kudu, jackal, bushbuck, warthog and leopard which are rarely seen. Guests can go for walks, go mountain biking or view the animals on the farm such as nguni cattle, boer goats, chickens, turkeys, geese and horses. For something different, join the "Cooking in the Country classes which take place in Puschka House. It focuses on cooking, eating and fun. Guests are guaranteed to have a good time whether you come along and join a group of like-minded people or whether you make up your own group. This is an ideal way to break down barriers in a group and do some team building.

"Stayed at Pushka Farm with family for the weekend. Firstly, I had to beg for the owner to send me accommodation confirmation.Only when I threatened to goelsewhere did I get the confirmation. I should have got a hint.Not what I expected.The place is fairly cleanBUT we had to kill lots of spiders in the cottage, kids were very scared on the first night. Far from everything else. Only met with one owner (Peter)on our arrival and that was it. Struggled with hot water, on Saturday I had to use the kettle for us to bath, on Sunday we made fire ourselves to get warm water. this was not communicated to us.You need a 4x4 to get there and have all the supplies you going need for your trip because this place is far from everything. I will not visit again!The place has lots of potential but it is neglected!"

"Puschka Bush Cottage"

By Louisa, South Africa
"Beautiful cottage in the bush. The only inconvenient thing is that we had to collect the key in Magaliesburg. We were travelling from Lichtenburg and had to add another 120kms to our trip, this was not mentioned when we booked the cottage."
"Great, peaceful escape!"

"We loved our weekend at Pushka Farm in their Bush Cottage. It was in the middle of the bush, which was fantastic! A nice escape from our busy lives, with no cellphones/internet connections (and no chargers, so we had NO excuse to use our phones!). We enjoyed our walks around the farm, and waking up to the sounds of birds! We'll definitely be back in the near future!"
