    "Perfect for a weekend break. Many wine farms in the area and other activities to keep you occupied but also ideal for just relaxing on the patio next to the braai with a glass of wine."

  • "Lovely stay"

    10 October 2016

    "We had a lovely stay in the family cottage. It was really clean and neat and the owner was very helpful. We ordered a breakfast picnic basket and it was more than enough for that two of us. A lot of thought went into it and we could not have been happier. Thank you for having us and we will definitely be back again."

  • "Wont visit again"

    15 December 2014

    "The cottage is so badly equipped. The website says "fully equipped", that is absolutely not true. There were hardly any utensils in the kitchen, we couldn't find a pair of scissors, no bread knife, no egg lifters and the list goes on and on. We even had to ask for a braai tongs and then had to keep washing them so that we could move the wood and charcoal first and then turn the meat as there wasn't even one pair to start with never mind two.And so the list goes on. The TV was so snowy that we couldn't watch it and the batteries in the TV remote had leaked so badly that the remote was damaged and couldn't be used so we had to keep getting up to change the channel.No tiles for bricks outside to even resemble some sort of patio and the cottage faces onto the manager's house.Overrated and over expensive for what it is."
