About Dew Cottage

Regain balance in your life by getting back to nature. Dew Cottage is a rustic retreat, situated on a working organic farm, where you can relax and unwind in comfort whilst enjoying the beautiful mountain environment.

The private, renovated farm cottage is self-catering and sleeps four to five people. A fully equipped kitchen with fridge and stove, as well as heaters and a fan provide for your comfort. All linen, feather duvets, blankets and towels are provided too. Enjoy romantic meals outside on the wooden deck with stunning views of the mountains and farmlands, or snuggle up indoors in front of the cosy fireplace. Laze in the hammock watching birds and listening to the frogs singing in the seasonal stream - a great place for children to explore. There is a braai and fire-pit in the garden where you can lose yourself under the stars.

Situated on the little farm called Vredenshoogte, which means Peaceful Heights, or as a friend once put it “The Height of Peace. We are on the “Fruit Route” in the Keisie Valley, 25km outside of Montagu, at the foot of the Burgers Pass. There are lovely walks with stunning views and mountain biking routes. Seasonal fruit, almonds, sunflower seeds, herbs and vegetables are available for sale and there is a variety to taste from the “Dew Delights” range. We make all sorts of delicious jams, jellies, chutneys and conserves from our produce.

Being nestled at the foot of the Langeberg Mountain range we often have snow- covered peaks in winter – a veritable winter wonderland. Spring flowers abound and the fruit trees are a picture in bloom. In summer one can experience the abundance of nature as the trees lay heavy with apricots, peaches and almonds. The vines are harvested in late summer and wine is made locally as well as the famous Montagu Muscadel. 

We would love to share this little piece of paradise with you.

      The fotos does not do justice to this piece of heaven. Stunning location, lovely cottage. Clean, comfortable, everything you need for a very enjoyable stay. Our stopover was way to short, will definately return for an extended stay.

      We have come back to our city lives rested and with our minds stilled after 5 very pleasant days spent at Dew Cottage and hiking and exploring the Montagu surrounds.Doreen is a welcoming and generous host.  The cottage is well equipped, and we enjoyed being able to have a fire in the evenings.  The stoep is the gem of Dew Cottage.  We spent much time there, reading and watching the many birds who visit.Thanks to Doreen and Tarry.

      Doreen was so friendly and made you feel absolutely welcome. The little cottage was spotless, and very well equipped. Nature is all around you. We loved waking up the chirping of birds and going for hikes in the surrounding area. We spend precious family time together, no television or cell phone reception! This was a weekend to be remembered for quite some time. Thanks Doreen, we will recommend your place!

      Travel off the tar for a couple of kilometres to a secluded farm in the mountains! A place to revitalise your tired mind and body! A large cottage with electricity provided. No wifi or cellphone (mobile) reception gave us time to relax, catch up on books and conversations! Excellent for bird lovers, hikers or just to chill out. Doreen, our host, was very kind, surprising us with muffins one morning and eggs On another! Good beds, bathroom, a large veranda, braai facilities and much more made this a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend!,
