About Berry Cottage

Berry Cottage is situated next to a stream on a small berry farm 5 km from the Gourmet Capital of South Africa, Franschhoek.

The cottage offers two bedrooms, one with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom, the other with two single beds and an adjoining bathroom. The open-plan kitchen/living room features a fireplace for cosy winter evenings and a fully-equipped kitchen should guests decide not to eat at Franschhoek's world-renowned restaurants. There is also a swimming pool available guests' use.

Two well-known wineries are within walking distance and there are museums and galleries to explore in the area as well as spas for a pampering getaway. Bird watchers will enjoy the resident Egyptian Geese in the Stone Pines lining the stream, as well as the squirrels, guinea fowl, and hadedahs. For the energetic, activities include mountain biking, hiking, and horse riding.

      Lovely little cottage surrounded by fruit trees and beautiful views. The fresh scones on Sunday morning were such a treat. Very comfortable rooms and a nice fireplace to keep warm on these chilly winter evenings.

      We had a great stay in Berry Cottage.  It was a break away from the city and the pressures of work.  The lovely big tree was wonderful to sit under with a good book while the birds sang around us.  The fire place works well and warms up the lounge kitchen area beautifully.

      Most wonderful and peaceful weekend! Beautiful garden and wonderful hosts - the berries and rusks were delicious! Close enough to all amenities yet far enough from the hustle and bustle.

      Berry Cottage was absolutely perfect as a base for us, 2 couples, who had come to Franschhoek to visit the Open Garden weekend. The cottage is spacious and comfortable, easily accessible with a beautiful garden and much tranquility.Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it highly.We were spoilt with freshly baked scones on the Sunday morning.
