Nestling at the very foot of the Makhonjwa Mountains in the mining town of Barberton you will find the quiet and tranquil Fountain Baths Guest Cottages. Built in 1884 as a bathhouse for the Gold Diggers, it is the site of the oldest swimming pool in the old Transvaal. Today it has a quiet and lush garden, making it a birders paradise, vervet monkeys, bush babies and porcupines are regular visitors. Part of the oldest rock formation in the world can be seen on the property, a real piece of geological interest.
