A huge thank you to the whole Cranford team for the most perfect and special wedding. Taryn and Karl could not have found a better venue.

Cranford was the perfect wedding venue. They made everything so easy for us to organise from abroad. They are always quick to reply to emails and enquiries which really made our wedding planning stress free. The accommodation was lovely, especially the Dairy where we spent two nights, and the food was delicious. Cranford also offered so many great photo opportunities...

We chose to stay here over the Christmas period as we have family living in the area. We wanted a quiet, peaceful place without much fuss. This we certainly got, the staff were great and nothing was too much effort. We loved the fresh milk in our fridge and the breakfast is simply SUPURB!

My husband wanted to go on a solo cycling excursion. After some time spent searching the net, Cranford Country Lodge offered the best by far, in terms of location and comfort. So I booked him in for two nights whilst he explored Karkloof by day. Comfort, food, atmosphere, and top service was norm for this place. Well it is KZN's...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Cranford for three nights to have a break from the hustle and bustle. It was the best place we have stayed yet. Absolutely nothing is at fault. The staff are so friendly, breakfast delicious and the rooms very neat, tidy, clean and homely. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat.

We had our wedding at Cranford on Dec 31, 2016. Although we live in Somerset West (Western Cape), we have lived in KZN, the Eastern Cape, and Gauteng previously and so for us the location was central. My family is also all from KZN so the location allowed all of them to join in. We viewed two KZN venues about...
