Uitvlugt Cottages and Camping Sites

Set in the picturesque McGregor surrounded by mountains, Uitvlugt offers a well balanced, quiet atmosphere with space to breath fresh mountain air and feel free. Sit by the side of the dam like you did when you were a child and wiggle your toes in the water. Leave the world behind and come spend some time in our part of the country, just a stone's throw away from the historical village of McGregor and a short drive from the best vineyards and wine cellars.

We offer two self-catering cottages; one is more suited for a couple looking for a romantic getaway while the second cottage is ideal for a young family as it sleeps four people. Our spacious camp sites lie nestled between the mountains and overlook the dam on the farm which is fed by mountain streams from the very nearby Sonderend Mountains.

  • "Fishing fun!!!!"

    08 January 2018

    "We loved our stay and enjoyed the fishing immensely. This is one of the reasons why we keep on going back. The bass just love to bite. Very private and so clean!! One very nice surprise was the upgrades that was done. We love the rustic look but we also love a good flushing toilet and a shower. So the communal area was really nice. There we hardly any signal and we had to walk by the ridge of the dam to make a call, but that was positive! We came to get away from work and that is what we did. The people are also nice and friendly and I liked that they checked up on us. The lapa was so awesome in general with chairs, a big table and a zink and there's even a couple braai grids to use. Overall rating... 5 stars"

    "the farm stay was niceBut we did not feel welcome. The farmer just drove u to us and said that the keys were in the housesthe houses were nice and cleanbut they have a big problem with the fireplaces. it makes the whole house smell of smoke. We saw in the visitors book that many have complained about this but they have not fixed the problem. the braais out side were so small and rustedthe last night we made our own plan to fix the fireplaceWe never saw the farm owners the dog was lovely just sad he doesn't have a tag so we could get his name"

  • "It was very peaceful and quiet"

    18 April 2017

    "The sites were too small and close to each other, clearly a new campsite, but I found the wording to be misleading on their website..The dam ( obviously) was very low, and the wind howled through the site - she did say that she will need to block off the end with some large trees to act as a windbreak. Quite unpleasant in the afternoons and evenings, which is not directly the establishment's problem."

  • "Uitvlugt camping"

    21 December 2016

    "An incredible camp site. But not for the glampers amoung us. Very rustic with few sites, absolute solitude and amazing bird life. Bring shade with you.<br/>We loved it."

    Ingrid Schoeman, South Africa
  • "Great time at Uitvlugt!"

    28 August 2016

    "Uitvulgt is a wonderful getaway! It is peaceful and quiet. <br/>I would only suggest that they add information about the road to the cottage is a bit too rough for a non-4x4 car."

  • "Camping Site"

    01 January 2016

    "No shade. No electricity or water if you are on the three camp sites furthermost from the communal wash up area. The showers, ablutions and communal wash up area are very basic and not pleasant to use. The donkey boiler must be fired up by the guests campsite users there is no hot water.<div><br /></div><div>The wind can really blow at this site so putting up a canopy to get out of the sun becomes impossible and due to the lack of trees at this campsite you will bake in summer so be aware.</div>"

  • "What a disappointment"

    12 August 2015

    "<p>We hired the cottage for 4 for two nights. We did not enjoy our stay:<br></br><br></br></p><p>- the was no adequate heating offered - the 1 little blow fan did not work</p><p>- given the lack of heating, no decent carpeting is offered to make an attempt to warm the place<br></br><br></br></p><p>- the beds were shocking - they are lumpy foam beds, on creacky springs or base beds that should have been retired years ago<br></br><br></br><br></br><br></br>- of the two plastic beakers supplied for children (in a cottage billed as suitable for young families), the clear one had mould growing on it<br></br><br></br></p><p>- the fridge smelled so bad I did not put my food in it</p><p>- there is no lock on the front door - only a latch to which you can attach a padlock. We were not offered the padlock and key<br></br><br></br><br></br><br></br></p><p>- nobody came to check on us during our visit to see if everything was adequate - I expect they did not want to deal with the fall out? <br></br><br></br></p><p>- decor is non-existant with bare light bulbs the order of the day - <br></br><br></br></p><p>- the view from the rear windows is onto the local dumping site for broken farm equipment and the front door view looks out onto the shade netting. Other windows are dirty spoiling what view you might want to glimpse<br></br><br></br></p><p>Arlene Addison<br></br><br></br><br></br><br></br></p><p ></br></p><p ></br></p>"

  • "Comfortably Rustic"

    03 December 2013

    "The owners are very friendly and helpful. To get to the campsite you have to travel along a farm road. The facilities are comfortably rustic, there are flushing toilets and the hot water in the shower is created by a donkey (a fire under a tin barrel of water). Unfortunately the weather was not great so we didn't get to take the row boat out into the dam but we did get to enjoy sitting in front of the big fire place. Certainly will be going back when we need to recharge our "batteries""

    Paula Sparks, South Africa

    03 January 2012

    "I would give Uitvlugt a 3.5 Star rating. It was very clean and tidy. Our stay was enjoyed, very quite and peaceful. It was overall relaxing and the service received was very good. I feel relaxed and ready for all the 2012 challenges. I would go back there again. It catered for everyone as we were family ranging from nine years to 69 years of age."

  • "Perfect"

    22 December 2011

    "If your are looking for quiet solitude and time to reflect, this is the campsite for you. The setting is perfect. A campsite on the banks of this perfect dam with mountains surrounding you. The facilities are clean and practical. There was a braai area in the lapa with electricity which sheltered us from the wind that seems to come up in the afternoons in McGregor. We woke to a perfect day and paddled around the dam in the boats provided. It was a fun time!"

    04 May 2011
