                          Loved the comfy bed, lovely location, nice shower, generous supply of braai wood, friendly and accommodating hostess. Didn't like the limited kitchen facilities especially the washing up sink, the outside braai with no rain protection.

                          An exquisite venue in nature, peaceful and lots of walking and hiking on the farm. Clean with all the amenities required and friendly staff. The perfect getaway to rest and rejuvenate.

                          The cottage (Dassie) was perfect for my wife and I! It had absolutely everything we needed, down to kindling , firewood, and firelighters. Tastefully designed and furnished and a wonderful stay. Next time we'll do more than just overnight there.
