The essence of Masescha is to experience a slower pace of life. Often the only accompaniment is the song of the birds and a gently whispering breeze.  A majestic forest backdrop frames an atmosphere of calm, relaxation and restfulness creating an idyllic scene for outdoor enthusiasts, birdwatchers and nature lovers alike to enjoy a rejuvenating break away from the hubbub of everyday life.

Masescha means "Hidden" or "Masked" – appropriately named, as we are nestled in a valley free of road noise.

We offer a flexible variety of clean, fully equipped self-catering facilities, all with free Wi-fibreakfast options also available, set in an established garden to suit all budgets.

A warm welcome awaits at Masescha.  Come and experience our real haven of tranquility!
