About Acacia Cottage
Acacia Cottage is located just a block away from town on a little farm with horses, chickens, cats and dogs - a private and restful retreat from street lights and traffic. The self-catering cottage features two en-suite bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and shower, the other with twin beds, a bathroom and air-conditioning. Both bedrooms also have mosquito nets, fans and mohair throws.
For winter, we have heaters in the bedrooms and a cosy fireplace in the lounge. The kitchen is fully equipped with all cooking requirements and a choice of teas, coffees and rusks. There is also a washing machine for guests' use and a cleaning and laundry service can be provided upon request for an additional charge. Safe, off-street parking is also provided.
Dine al fresco on the vine-covered veranda or in the spacious open-plan living room which features a wood-burning fireplace for those winter evenings, while the fold-out couch provides extra sleeping space. Spend your time relaxing and watching the grazing horses or the magnificent Karoo sunsets, have a braai, or take a dip in the swimming pool.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our all to short stay in Prince Albert at Acacia Cottage. On arrival we were met by Di who gave us a very warm welcome. Di had taken the time to phone us at home the morning we left for P.A. wishing us a safe and pleasant trip. Most thoughtful of Di. The cottage was warm and comfortable and fully equipped with tea, coffee, milk and lovely rusks as well. We will definitely repeat this trip in the future. Thank you very much Di.
The six of us (including two kids) had a wonderful two-night stay at Acacia Cottage. Di encouraged us to pick fresh tomatoes and basil, peaches and plums, which we slurped on the stoep while watching the fiery Karoo sunset. When it got hot the next day, the pool was a delightful relief. The cottage itself is beautifully done, very private from the main house, with high ceilings and lots of windows. The annex (extra two-person bedroom) is back at the main house, a very short walk away, but we opted to sleep on the futon in the cottage, which was perfectly comfortable for two adults.

Absolutely super. We really enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return but for a longer stay.
What a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is all anyone could want and our hosts so friendly and helpful. With the delightful town within walking distance this is a great place to stop. We only had one night, but wished we could have stayed longer
I wish my home was as great as Acacia Cottage! Comfortable, beautifully designed, well situated and a welcome - not only to the guesthouse, but to the town. We would happily live in Prince Albert if we could live in Di's cottage.Definitely the place to book and stay for more than a day - and try and be there on the Saturday for the market - charming!
