The main farmhouse is next to Monsoon Gallery & Mad Dogz Café, which is forms part of the Blue Cottages.
The stunning Blyde River Canyon route is nearby, as are opportunities for rafting, hiking and bird watching,hot-air balloon rides and game viewing drives can also be arranged on request. Kruger Park’s Phalaborwa and Orpen gates are an hour’s drive away.

                              The cottage was clean and for self catering well equipped. The garden was beautiful and well looked after and the staff were accommodating and pleasant. Dinner is available if one does not want to cook for oneself. I was very comfortable during my stay and found Blue Cottages to be great value for money.

                              02 May 2014

                              The cottages are set in a jungle like garden. We used the family cottage and found it comfortable and spacious enough for three adults (son of 17). A kitchen in the rondavel for self catering. We were served a lovely dinner under the stars in the garden. Tony and Tertia made us feel welcome and we will definitely stay there again. Bigger soaps could be provided in the family cottage.

                              21 April 2014

                              Well taken care of. If you are looking for tranquillity and beautiful gardens and still be nearby places to visit, then Blue Cottages is the place to stay at. Service was beyond excellent. The personal touch by the owners - lets just say that they are a rare gem.

                              12 August 2013

                              Excellent value for money. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay there again. Peace and quiet.

                              05 August 2013

                              What a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. We were very comfortable and the gardens are lovely. We enjoyed our delicious breakfasts and evening meal with Tony and Tersia. Thank you so much.
