Spent a night at Wild Olive Cottage on the beautiful farm next to Camdeboo Nature Reserve. We loved the peace and tranquility, and picturesque environment. Will and Nilene were welcoming, friendly, informative and accommodating. The kids loved the interaction with the animals, walks on the farm and the splash pool was refreshing after a long day on the road. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We would love to go back and spend more time there.

We love the place, it was neat and clean. We only have a problem with the fireplace, it was very cold the night and windy, as we start the fire there was so much smoke inside the room we could not breath, eventually we have to open all the windows and door to let the smoke out. I suggest you extend your chimney and put a weathercock on top. Other wise it was loveley.

Lovely friendly hosts, the cottage was perfect, large bathroom.... best was the fireplaces in the lounge and bedroom, which we used. The views were breathtaking. Definitely recommend

Very neet and any one who does not want the usual B&B in a city or town should consider this self catering breakaway.

We loved our stay, Vey comfortable with lots of little touches. There were only 2 wine glasses (gorgeous large ones). Not a problem for us bit I thought it may be if there were 2 couples staying.
