We had another wonderful stay at Brakdakkies! Our children enjoyed visiting the ducks and playing in the old car, while we drank port on the stoep. Our cottage was clean and very well-equipped, with good quality linen and kitchen utensils, and we were very snug despite the chilly karoo night. It's great to stay in a place where so much care has been put into appearances.
