      Book Silo cottage and you wont go wrong. The cottage is homely and very cosy. Excellent heating facilities if you go in winter. Either you want to swim or go tubing in the Umzimkhulu river just 200m from the cottage or go on a horse trek or just relax and soak in the view. Silo cottage offers it all.Noise is not a problem as other cottages are far away.There is a small drive on dirt road, but it is worth it.

      The view from the cottage was amazing. The place was spacious and contained everything we needed. I would definitely recommend Silo cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday away from the city.
