Pleasant Places Guesthouse was established in 1997.
The 4 star Guesthouse has been completely renovated, in September 2017, with all rooms and public spaces redesigned and updated by an award winning interior decorator.
Each room has been created to have its own unique look and feel, yet reflects a consistent, understated elegant style in a beautiful country setting. The emphasis throughout is on comfort and luxury in a completely relaxing and tranquil environment.

There are many reasons to enjoy a wonderful stay at Pleasant Places and whether the initial reason for your stay is an occasion, sporting event, school function, the various attractions of the Midlands Meander or simply to unwind and escape the stresses of daily routine you will be able to relax and find yourself rejuvenated in our tranquil valley in the countryside. Stroll down through the pastures below the house to the Lions River or enjoy a leisurely walk around our 16-hectare property, enjoying some of the spectacular scenery.

Relax in the garden and watch or simply listen to the abundant birdlife. There are a large variety of trees in the garden, as well as the pine forest along the river and the Bluegum forest higher up. These are home to numerous species of birds to delight keen bird watchers.


"We were met by friendly staff on a cold afternoon, our unit was warm (the underfloor heating was on), the lights were on and the heater was on. This was so comforting and welcoming. Dinner was excellent and the recipes were shared without even asking which was generous and thoughtful. Breakfast was beautifully served and very good. Our hosts were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Our car was washed before leaving. This little gem is a beautiful setting is well worth a visit."
