About the garden

In a valley, surrounded by the hills of Magoebaskloof, lies Sequoia Garden Retreat, now under new ownership since January 2017. It is a botanical chronicle, named after the Dawn Redwood trees (Metasequoia Glyptostroboides). These magnificent trees are descendants from the original seed collected in China's Sichuan province where the tree was discovered in 1941 and is now grown on our premises. In amongst the bountiful diverse plantations, we have two romantic and private self-catering cottages set in six hectares of wild and formal gardens from where you can experience the beauty and the peace of the Mountain.
