The Shed

The Shed is a former calving shed at the edge of the village that has been renovated into a comfortable one-bedroom cottage set within a private garden.
The standalone cottage features one bedroom with an en suite containing a shower, toilet and floating vanity basin. All linen and towels are provided. The bedroom has a cupboard, electric blankets, and a wall panel heater.

The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering and includes a double hot-plate, a microwave, refrigerator, kettle, and toaster. The living room has an open wood-burning corner fireplace and double doors leading out onto a private garden area, with braai facilities and an ice-cold plunge pool. The Shed also boasts a unique, custom-made large picture window facing a pretty garden.

There is a secure fence surrounding the entire property, with off-street parking behind a gate. Regretfully, we do not accommodate pets.

  • "Peaceful retreat."

    03 January 2018

    "We really enjoyed our stay at The Shed. Just a note that the photos on the listing are a bit outdated, as the garden is no longer as pictured (no grass or sun lounger anymore). Having said that, we did very much enjoy the pool and the privacy! Also, just note that there is no oven or Wifi. We didn't realize but luckily made lots of yummy food on the braai and stove!"

    "Wonderful private getaway. The plunge pool was well used. Being on the edge of the nature reserve but accessible to Main Road was great. We enjoyed our weekend."

  • "An ideal winter getaway."

    11 July 2016

    "My wife and I spent a winter weekend at The Shed in McGregor and had an absolutely brilliant time. The house was well supplied, clean and comfortable, with some very welcoming touches. We particularly enjoyed that the fireplace already had wood inside, waiting to be lit.<div><br /></div><div>The atmosphere was very peaceful and highly conducive to relaxation, which is just what we were looking for. We felt very safe, and the surrounding area and garden were beautiful.</div><div><br /></div><div>We would definitely recommend The Shed.</div>"

  • "Peaceful private paradise"

    13 August 2015

    "The Shed is a comfortable cosy unpretentious yet carefully thought out and created space. If it is peace and solitude you are looking for yet literally a stones throw from the more social side of McGregor with its coffee spots and restaurants then this is the place for you...or two! A return to."

  • "Little gem"

    04 May 2015

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Shed. The location is perfect (on one of the outside streets of McGregor, but the town is very small so in any case you are close to everything), the cottage is very well appointed and the small private courtyard and garden are just lovely. We didn't get to try the splash pool but it must be a welcome feature in summer. The owners made us feel very welcome.<br />The only downside is the field in front of the cottage, also belonging to the owners, which contains building rubble and makes in particular the arrival at the place a bit odd. Also, the outside area, although absolutely lovely and with great landscaping work, is much smaller than what one could think when looking at the pictures.<br />"
