About Deruxa Cottages

Deruxa Cottages are situated on a 21-hectare farm that was acquired by the Moolman family as the ideal way to introduce their children to the outdoors. They subsequently moved there for a few years to enhance their quality of living and since then, the family has moved back to the city and the facilities have expanded.

The property is located a mere 40 km north of Pretoria, 45-minutes' drive from the eastern and northern Pretoria regions. The historical town of Cullinan provides many attractions and restaurants and is only 20 km east of the farm.

The farm has been game fenced, with a few species of game introduced. An open-air lapa, conference facilities and kitchen, bar and ablution facilities have been added to the property, as well as three free-standing cottages, while the old farmhouse was refurbished as a self-catering unit for family and weekend breaks. Deruxa Cottages offers a variety of rooms, ranging from self-catering in the old farmhouse to fully catered cottage accommodation.

The venue is ideal for families and friends to rekindle friendships, but can also be used by businesses to hold small conferences, managerial meetings and year-end functions.

Safari: The farm has been game fenced and electrified. The animals venture close to the units during the day and late afternoon to drink at the strategically placed watering holes around the units. 112 bird species has been identified on the farm.

              Remoteness was awesome. Some maintenance can make it better but did not bother us.

              Shockingly poor experience at Deruxa. We were at a wedding at another venue and aranged that we'll be checking in at 10p.m at Deruxa. When we arrived the number at the gate didn't work and we had to find another number to contact them on and ask them to open the gate.

We had work to...
