neat, clean and very comfortable.Well equipped and private braai area.Driveway very narrow not easy for a large car to enter but street parking seems safe enough.

It would be great to fully enclose the braai area with canvas rollers.

Last tip - if you are planning to braai, ask around before you buy wors from a certain butchery. I was looking forward to my braai, but the wors could...

This cottage, a converted prayer house, is quite close to town and is very well appointed with good facilities - 2 bedrooms - and plenty of cooking facilities. All very clean and comfortable.

Very neat and well decorated. Heaters available in each room for the cold evenings. Within walking distance of all Prince Albert shops. Ideal place to "switch off" and feel like you have arrived in heaven.
