Tsitsikamma Gardens Self-Catering Cottages is situated next to the N2 highway and a working dairy farm near the Stormsriver Bridge & many other adventure activities and offers 2 delightful self-catering cottages in the Tsitsikamma region of South Africa.

Our cottages are situated next to the N2 highway (for easy access to all major adventure activities in the area, closest zip line is less than 1km away) in the garden next to a working farm with beautiful mountain and garden views. As we are next to a highway, one can naturally expect some traffic noise.

We also have a swimming pool that is located at the main house which will be shared with the guests staying in our cottages which may be used daily until 18h30 (no unsupervised swimming for kids under 18).

We also have a restaurant onsite where you can book for breakfast, lunch or have cakes and coffees, open daily from 08h00 till 18h00 (last order at 17h30).

We also use our own natural spring water in the cottages and restaurant and have our own borehole for the gardens.

Good location for price and beautiful surroundings. Only improvement is better lighting and didn't seem to have a kettle but surely was a mistake. Loved our stay and cottage met all our needs.

The area is magnificent actually. There is so much to do. The accommodation was lovely but sadly too close to the main road. The village area was fabulous and has a fantastic vibe.

Owner, Danie, very friendly and extremely helpful. Definitely our choice of stay next time round. Lovely cottage, beautifully equipped, spacious, with all the mod cons. Suited our every need. Outside area was fabulous with rolling lawns, mountain views, and a magical braai, which was serviced the next day. Plenty of wood, firelighters and matches provided.  Highly recommended.
