IMG_0871The house that Jack built is one of the cottages at Sequoia Gardens, situated just outside Haenertsburg.

The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and the grounds are exquisite, I could have spent the entire weekend just gazing out the window in the lounge at the dam in front of the cottage or going for walks around the property.

Indigenous to the area St Josephs lilies grow wild and tall, this one towered over me on one of my walks.


A bubbling brook leads from the dam in front of the cottage, to the dam in front of the main house.

The perfect hide away for a weekend and if you were fortunate enough to be able to spend a week here I am convinced you would return a changed person.

  1. Found your post on the sequoia gardens post, we just took over the management of the farm and if you ever want to visit again we would love to hear what you think of the changes we are making. We also now have a nursery on site so you can take home a part of sequoia to remind you of the gardens

    1. Hi Luan, thank you for making contact, you are most blessed to live in that magical place! Wishing you much happiness and success , will definitely pop in the next time I’m up there x Tracy
