This is a pet friendly dream venue.

After loosing our Fur Baby “Blue” in just one month before we went to the Secret valley, this could not have come at a better time. It really brought healing to our Souls and Sherlock’s (Our other Baby)

The Beautiful Stone house has all the amenities that you need, but extra is given to make you and your fur baby feel welcome. With a complimentary bottle of wine and a draw full of dog toys extra dog bowls. The lounge furniture is designed that you can sleep with you puppies down stairs, but a stunning up stairs bedroom is welcoming with a deak that you enjoy sun downers watching the beautiful sun sets.

The Garden is broken in two the other fenced in area, where you can explore they even have a small swimming area for you dogs. and a small walled in garden area, where all the braai facilities and comforts are available for you to enjoy your stay and enjoy the out doors. Please note this is not a husky safe area, but if your dog is not an escape artist then you will have the best time here.

We had a awesome Time in such a peaceful and Tranquil place enjoying morning and afternoon Walks, Magnificent Sunsets and Sunrises, the special touches in the cabin was really special.

The Secret Valley is a hidden retreat set in a little piece of paradise just outside Cullinan approx 30 Minutes from Pretoria.

There is a very long waiting list for this lovely venue.
