About Comfrey Cottage

The Comfrey Cottage Collection is set in a park-like garden at the foot of the Witteberg mountains in Lady Grey. The Collection consists of three cottages – Comfrey, Robin’s Nest and Apple Crumble – each containing a number of en-suite bedrooms. Each room has its own distinct character, beautifully renovated and decorated to enhance your country experience.All rooms and the dining room are decorated with Wetherley’s furniture, ensuring comfort and style throughout. There is free WiFi available in the guest dining room and lounge area. The guest areas are very comfortably furnished, with a roaring log fire during winter and lovely fresh mountain breezes and views during summer.Beds and bases are of the finest quality, with white polycotton percale linen used in all bedrooms. Light yet warm duvets and throw blankets will keep you snug at night. Electric blankets are provided for extra warmth during winter. All bedrooms have fans, heaters, full tea trays (tea, coffee, milk, sugar, homemade buttermilk rusks, filtered iced water and kettle water) as well as a welcoming sherry! All bathrooms have full guest amenities wrapped soap, shampoo, body lotion and shower caps. Hairdryers and clock-radios are provided.Let us spoil you with sumptuous meals in our licensed guest dining room. The advertised rate is for bed only but we do provide breakfast on request.

All meals are prepared by Chef George using the best, freshest ingredients available, prepared and cooked using purified water and served in the stylish dining room. Self-catering is also available. Comfrey Cottage (i.e. Blue Room, Green Room and Iris Room) can be booked as a fully self-catering unit, and Apple 2 has mini self-catering facilities (microwave and bar fridge).Comfrey Cottage Collection provides a cosy retreat for the weary traveller. Relax under the trees; stroll along our riverside walk while you savour the fresh country air; meander through the orchards, herb and vegetable gardens; feed the Alpacas; or join others in our guest lounge to share tales and experiences.

                                      From travelling from Pretoria to Cape Town and back via the Garden Route we found Comfrey Cottages to be the absolute high light. The rooms were clean and bright. The food and service excellent!

                                      Despite the incredible summer heat, we enjoyed a very comfortable and restful night. Our 6yo loved spending time with the alpacas and the fruit grove is quite splendid. Delicious dinner and warm hosts. We highly recommend this for weary travelers.
