Very comfortable
Steve and Marian Gerrish, South Africa - 23 April 2014
Very comfortable and very well equipped. Tastefully furnished and homely. Every need is catered for. Spotlessly clean. Our cottage was Stared Robin Cottage.
So accommodating
Charne Macklin, South Africa - 31 March 2014
Helen was so amazing. Such a helpful lady and was accommodating in the fact that we had a wedding in the afternoon and she let us book in earlier. The cottage was neat and tidy and had a beautiful view. Definitely very tranquil and peaceful. Cute little fire place and we had coffee tea and hot chocolate provided. What more can you ask for. Would definitely recommend Crab Apple to people in the future.
Awesome Weekend

Absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay and the beauty of the surroundings. The cottages was well equipped and the attention to detail is excellent. This is exactly what we needed to switch off and get away from the busy city life. Can't wait to go back for more!

If you are looking for the best place to unwind and be looked after to your every need, Crab Apple is the place to go. This is a home away from home with the benefit of being in nature. An absolute treat! Everything you need and more.
So comfortable
Marcelle Southey, South Africa - 16 April 2012
We unfortunately only spent one night, but what a fabulous time we had. We were made to feel so welcome. The cottage was most comfortable and the walks were amazing. Underfloor heating was on and the electric blankets had even been switched on for us! Helen & Barend truly care for their guests. Thank you so much!


Crab Apple Cottages
Architecturally designed and delightfully comfortable, our three AA Highly Recommended Crab Apple Cottages are set on the edge of a pristine wilderness, the Dargle Valley Conservancy. Each thatched, self-catering cottage has a different character whilst being furnished with every comfort including under floor heating to keep you snug. The bedroom has a Queen-sized bed and there is an antique cast iron Victorian tub and shower in the en-suite bathroom. The spacious, open plan living area, with sleeper couch for children, leads onto a sun deck. Starred Robin Cottage has an additional loft with two single beds. Starred Robin and Wood Owl cottages have multi-fuel cast-iron stoves as fireplaces, while Crowned Eagle cottage has a large Spanish-style fireplace. As enthusiastic supporters of local living, the Booysen’s have used local suppliers to furnish the cottages. Our delicious spring water, from the taps, is drinkable. There is an electronic safe available in each cottage. A laundry service and a housekeeper are available if required.

Kayaking, carriage driving and forest walks are available by arrangement.

Starred Robin Cottage Page

Starred Robin Cottage is a quaint, English-style country cottage, decorated with oak furniture and a cream and white palette. The deck is garlanded with rambling roses and overlooks a fairy ring of Silver Birch trees and the rolling lawn leads down into the forest's stream. The cottage's namesake, a pair of Starred Robins, is resident. This shy insect eater is notoriously difficult to spot. Another pair nests at Wood Owl cottage. You are also likely to see the troop of Samango monkeys who regularly raid the lemon tree. Children will be delighted to find the playground near this cottage; it includes a jungle gym and swing.

Crowned Eagle Cottage Page

Tucked into the forest, Crowned Eagle Cottage is both modern and warm decorated in rich reds and oranges. The porcelain lamp fitting was restored by Helen and her father. The wooden deck provides a breath-taking view over the forest. This is the territory of a pair of Crowned Eagles – the nest has been in the same spot for at least 70 years and is visible from the cottage. A family of Dassies (Rock Hyrax) have made their home beneath the deck. Follow a secret path down to a stream in the forest for a moment of absolute solitude.

Wood Owl Cottage Page.

An African Elegance vibe was instilled in Wool Owl Cottage. Mohair curtains, wicker chairs and dark wood furniture create luxurious warmth and elegance along with the bespoke four poster bed. This cottage offers many pleasures - the deck overlooks the forest, the doors open onto the heated pool and there is a fragrant rose garden just around the corner.
