If you’re wanting to do more than mellow in the serene rural setting, activities include still-water trout fishing, walking, and birding.

The cottage has a main bedroom with a double bed, a second bedroom with two single beds and a third bedroom, ideal for kids, with four bunk beds. The bathroom has a shower, hand-basin and toilet.

Fireplace in lounge

The spacious lounge and dining area features an open fire-place – essential to make those chilly winter evenings warm and cosy. Wood is provided, as is a daily litre of fresh milk from the farm dairy.

You’ll find linen and towels included, as are soap and toilet paper. In fact, all you need bring is your own food and drink as the kitchen is equipped with crockery and cutlery plus electric stove, fridge and microwave. If you prefer to braai, there’s a Weber on the stoep.

For those important sports events (or for soapie addicts), there’s a flat-screen TV with DSTV in the lounge. Access to DSTV is R20 a day.

The cottage is entirely separate from the main house and overlooks rolling farmland, ensuring guests’ privacy.
