Welcome to Lavenderwood Bed and Breakfast


Located only 100kms / 1hr from Johannesburg, the quiet town of Deneysville is the perfect getaway destination for a quick break from the bustle of city life. Relax and unwind at our Bed and Breakfast whilst enjoying everything the Vaal Dam offers.

Ideally located on the main tarred road we have plenty of off-street parking for cars, boats and trailers alike, and  guests are provided with  their own remote access key.


Our spacious rooms offer private access and have quality finishes throughout. Tastefully decorated, all rooms are serviced daily and can be booked on a bed only, or bed and breakfast basis. Dinner service can be organised by booking in advance.

Each room has it's own thatched private balcony with direct access into the garden. Guests are welcome to enjoy private breakfasts served on the balcony and can enjoy the braai area based within the rose garden - perfect for chilling out at the end of a great day on the Vaal Dam!

The balconies continue to offer views of the Vaal Dam, amazing sunrises and on a good night, our star rating is about a billion!

We regret but no children under the age of 12, and no pets to ensure the comfort of our other guests during their stay.

"Bill and Ruth are so wonderful, they are friendly and welcoming. The place is very clean and smells nice, you can smell the lavender when it's raining around the yard which makes one feel even more relaxed. The breakfast was so nice we actually looked forward to it, and the homemade apricot jam is a must taste. Staying there was a great experience."
