Welcome To The Cradle Rest

The Cradle Rest’ is situated in the Cradle of Humankind, nestled between the ancient and tranquil Zwartkop Mountains. We offer our cli­ents an affordable alternative without compromising on our personal, friendly and seamless service. A truly ‘Multi Faceted’ Venue. The Cradle Rest’ is a stunning backdrop for family occasions, engage­ments, weddings & corporate functions. `The Cradle Rest’ naturally lends itself for retreats, getaways, workshops and seminars. And we are only 40 minutes away from Johannesburg and Pretoria. At The Cradle Rest’ we have a small organic farm, a few horses, cows, sheep and quite a few chickens and turkeys. We have a variety of flora and numerous trees and shrubs. We even have our very own ‘Black Forest’. At night you are welcome to sit around the fire under the star studded canopy, while you reflect on life itself.
