We received a great welcome from Margie who ran us through the house before we settled down to a beautifully relaxed weekend.We had mixed weather, so we enjoyed the fireplace and the braai [not having to drag in fuel a bonus!]We loved the peace and quiet, and the total pet-friendliness, and the homely feel.We'll most likely be back - a great place to base for exploring the general area

A place to relax, and enjoy peace and quiet removed from the hustle and bustle of the city! Such a beautiful setting, and very comfortable home. We loved it, and wish we had more than one night there. Yes it is a bit old-fashioned with the decor, but that only adds to the experience. Would love to go back!

What a treasure we discovered in Strawcroft!! It is very comfortable, homely, peaceful and surrounded by a stunning view. I highly recommend that you stay at least a whole weekend.
