We had a less than satisfactory stay at Carrigan. Firstly the Bath and Basin were dirty when we arrived. We let this slide and went off to a wedding in the area. Upon our return our room was riddled with small black worms. They were everywhere. On the walls, carpet and bedding. We did our best to clear them off. We had our three year old son with us so we did our best to make him comfortable as it was late when we returned. However when we pulled back the covers and my wife got into bed something bit her. Upon inspection we noticed little bugs in the bed. Being that it was 1 am in the morning there was no one to call. We slept on top of the covers and adding insult to injury my son was so cold he was shivering through the night. We decided to cover him up with my suit jacket while my wife and i braved the wellington night. They did provide a blanket but after seeing the sheet we refused to use this recourse. The next morning the owner (i assume) approached us about our stay and we made our displeasure noted upon which he apologised and promptly wanted the rest of the payment. This i thought was in bad taste having come from the industry myself i felt that this was not the way to go about it. I paid my bill and left the property with a very bad taste in my mouth. The breakfast was definitely not worth it either.
A lovely stay

We really enjoyed our stay at Carignan Cottages. The room was comfortable but what really amazed us was the gorgeous breakfast with a view of the forest, beautiful table setting and personal attention from the owner and staff. We felt very welcome and they even supplied us with braai facilities and coals on our second night. Thanks again for such a great weekend.

We decided to spend the weekend in Wellington mountain biking, eating and drinking wine.
We did all of those!
Carignan Cottages were perfect for our needs.
A wonderful peaceful wine farm with great hospitality and excellent wine. The wine maker, Daniel went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable.
If you want to chill in the wine lands this is the place!

Really enjoyed our stay at this quaint little wine farm! Daniel was an amazing host and really made us feel at home.
The farm is so quiet and peaceful and is perfect for a weekend getaway!

We had a very pleasant stay at Carigan Cottages. Cozy and comfortable and close to town - yet nice and quiet on the farm.

We had a very nice stay in two of the cottages as we attended a wedding in the town. Rooms were cosy and the beds super comfy. It was nicer to be in the country rather than in a town B&B but unfortunately the weather was rainy so we were not able to explore more of the farm or area.
