Learn more about the area of Balfour, as well as the many activities available in the surrounding areas.

Named the Land of abundance, Balfour is located south east of Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, just off the R23 that leaves the N3 north of Heidelberg and heads into the province of Mpumalanga, Balfour nestled in a region given over mostly to farms, game farms and bushveld.

Balfour is a small coal mining and maize farming town originally called McHattiesburg after the man who founded it, Frederick McHattie. This was later changed and named for the British Prime Minister of the time.

It is called Cosmos Country because it is this area that annually explodes with varying pink and white cosmos flowers during autumn, a breath-taking sight for any visitor.

“Welgelegen the place to get away from the Madding Crowd”

This is my 5th visit to Welgelegen Manor and each and for every visit, I have come away feeling revitalized and invigorated! Best of all, the standard at the Manor under Connie’s very able leadership is improving…what a pleasure! The cuisine is an absolute pleasure and the chef needs to be congratulated on a job well done! Hold onto him at all costs! Thank you all at Welgelegen and I’m already looking forward to my return…hopefully sooner than later! Keep up the good work! stayed July 2016, traveled as a couple

The property was beautiful, and reading the history was fascinating. The service is impeccable, value for money great, rooms beautiful, food lovely. Welgelegen Manor is an amazing getaway for a couple (or individual) who wishes to escape the city and take a breathe of country air. Lovely hide away. We will come again. What an amazing weekend… staff is outstanding. Beautiful house with beautiful spacious rooms, beautiful garden, relaxing atmosphere, the staff is efficient and friendly and the food is out of this world. I would recommend Welgelegen Manor to everyone who needs some time out and relaxation.
