  • "Best accommodation in McGregor area"

    11 August 2011

    "We spent the long weekend in the Fossil Hills farm cottage and we had a great time. The cottage is very well equipped. In fact, it is probably one of the best that we've ever had. It is well located, on a north-facing hillside, and the view is wonderful. There are lots of dirt tracks for the kids to cycle and you can see them all the time as the cottage is situated well above the rest of the valley. Add to that the complimentary bottle of wine and more than enough wood for the fireplace and you have a great venue for a family or romantic breakaway. Lots of fossils too, if that interests you. And finally, Ina and Botha are really friendly and helpful hosts. We'll definitely be back."
