Welcome to Celtis Lodge!
Set in 24 hectares of beautiful open countryside, this 3 star country retreat is just 7 km from Magaliesburg and an hour's drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Celtis Lodge comprises the original 19th century farmhouse and four thatched-roof cottages - Lavender, Rock, Mulberry, Rose, New Horizons and New Horizons - Couples Retreat.
The lodge is on a farm, so it's very peaceful and tranquil with abundant and colourful birdlife. There is a swimming pool, horse riding, and a healing room where you can have a soothing hour-long massage. We also have a little consecrated Chapel where couples are married or have naming ceremonies for their baby.
The old ruins of the original Farmhouse now form the romantic backdrop to the lower gardens and the free-shaped swimming pool, cool and deep, set among roses and handsome white stinkwood trees.
Further up the hill is the newly refurbished 'Cowshed'. Now an attractive spacious venue with a separate kitchen, it can be transformed from a comfortable lounge and dining area to a function/conference hall. It is especially suitable for family occasions such as weddings, birthdays, receptions and workshops.
We welcome day visitors who would like breakfast or a light meal, tea and scones in the Tea Garden.
On Sundays parents are welcome to bring their children, who can have a pony ride and a milkshake.

Thank you for making our wedding a day to remember. The little stone chapel amongst the forest was picture perfect. Food was delicious, service outstanding, grounds beautiful and topped with the perfect life partner...I was the happiest bride!
