About Bergvlei Country Cottage
There is nothing quite like escaping to the peace and splendour of the unspoilt countryside, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here, a mere 45 km from Wakkerstroom, nestled between berg and vlei, lies this charming country cottage.
The cottage has two bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom, and the other with twin single beds. Both these rooms have views of the dam and mountains. There is another bathroom and an open-plan kitchen, dining area and lounge with fireplace. Upstairs is an open loft area with three single beds on the one side, a small lounge area in the middle, and another three single beds on the other side.
The veranda offers magnificent views of the nearby dam, great for cooling off in the summer heat, while a quaint fireplace invites you to curl up and snuggle on the couches in winter. For the intrepid adventurer there are numerous hikes in the berg surrounding the cottage, while the vlei is alive with a variety of birds for those keen birders.
For the less adventurous, enjoy a sundowner or two on the edge of the berg overlooking the valleys below, lounge on the veranda with a good book, or set out for a leisurely paddle on the dam.The cottage has solar panels for lights and a gas stove and fridge. The water is heated by gas or fire. There is no cellphone reception so you can completely get away from it all. The road is not the greatest and a high clearance vehicle will be needed for the last stretch to the cottage.
Family friendly: Lots of fun for the whole family. Swim in the dam, go for walks, fishing (bring own rod). There is also a little sand pit next to the cottage, parents can relax on the veranda while the children play.
Romantic: This is a great place for a romantic getaway, lovely veranda with great views, lots of stars at night. When it's too cold to sit outside the couches and fireplace inside are very cosy and ideal for snuggling.
A SUV is needed to get to the cottage because the last stretch of the road is not so good.
