Send to Kindle
Budmarsh Private Lodge

Budmarsh Private Lodge

WIN a two night weekend stay at the 5-star graded Budmarsh Private Lodge.  Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, in the heart of the magical Magaliesberg, Budmarsh Private Lodge awaits to welcome you to its world of understated elegance, tranquility and personalised attention. Escape through beautiful gardens to ramble amongst abundant bird life. With its exquisitely landscaped gardens, enchanting trees and magnificent scenery, there is no better place than Budmarsh

The Prize

Valued at over R10 000, the prize includes:

  • Two nights accommodation for 2 persons sharing on consecutive weekend nights including breakfast
  • Sparkling wine in the room on arrival
  • A picnic for two on the Saturday
  • A six course dinner in the cellar on one evening
  • Sunday lunch for two
  • A romantic turndown on one evening
  • Drinks voucher to the value of R350

Budmarsh Private Lodge

Budmarsh will offer you the opportunity to relax, unwind and be treated to a charming picnic on the Budmarsh lawns. And it will be perfectly understood if after indulging in the delights of the picnic basket that you simply close your eyes and fall asleep. While relaxing you may want to see if you can spot the Golden Oriel whose distinctive call is often the only clue that this beautiful but elusive bird is in the trees. Other birds, including the resident fish eagle and many kingfishers are often spotted.

After a sumptuous six course dinner, conjured by our Master Chef, relax in front of a roaring fire, engage in a game of snooker or simply escape to the quietness of the library to read and forget the stresses of your world. Retire to your bedroom with its antique furniture, underfloor heating, en suite bathroom and sink into your king size bed for a sleep that is truly nature’s balm.

Sunday lunch is a four course set menu, and is served from 12h30 to 14h30.
