Country living at its best

Misty mornings, enjoying the sunrise over the far hills and into the valley. Stunningsunsets, enjoying the swooping fish eagles, early evenings settling into starry nights.

Casting into the fresh, sparkling waters on your doorstep, waiting for the first bite. Picnic on the banks of the dam or just grab your favorite book and relax. 

Glenrock Retreat offers you peace and tranquility, far from the hustle and bustle of the city. 


Breathe and Relax with us...


With an abundance of birdlife, Glenrock is the perfect getaway for avid birders. With two dams, there is plenty to keep keen fishermen busy. Braai facilities are available at each cabin, for those braai masters. 

Enjoy a stroll across the dam wall, enjoying the fresh country air and wonderful outdoors.


Glenrock Retreat is situated just a short drive from one of SA's best tourist destinations, the Midlands Meander. Famous worldwide, for its cuisine and artists, the Meander has something to offer everyone. 


From Craft Beer to Ceramics, it's hard not to get caught up in the amazing local vibes. Live music can be heard at most of the local restaurants, and there is a farmer's market every Saturday morning in Nottingham Road. 

About Glenrock Retreat

"My husband and I left the big city lights of Gauteng behind us in2021, and chose to take on a new challenge in the heart of the Midlands in KwaZulu Natal. 


Come and witness magnificent sunrises and sunsets plus beautiful star filled nights.  Full moon is really a sight to see, when it reflects with the chalet lights off our dam, all which can magically disappear within minutes from descending mist.


Listen to the fish eagles cries during the day and the jackals at night.

Our wish is that all who visit Glenrock Retreat will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.


Our goal is to provide every single one of our guests with a personalized visit.  We value your company and would like everyone who visits to feel part of the Glenrock family."


-Theresa & Craig Snell

Best time of the year to visit?

Winter offers cozy log fires and the promise of snow. 

Spring brings with it the awakening of all new life with baby goats, baby geese, and baby bunnies being welcomed. 

Summer is the best time to take an early morning dip or watch the sunrise for another beautiful day. 

Autumn is Cosmos time so, in our opinion..
