About Crab Apple Cottages
Delightfully comfortable, Crab Apple’s AA Superior Cottages are set on the edge of the Kilgobbin Forest and the Dargle Valley Conservancy. Generations of visitors have experienced the soul-restoring reassurance that comes with being surrounded by the beauty of creation. The forest is filled with ancient trees, animals and over 200 species of birds.
Retreat to one of our three thatched, self-catering cottages furnished with every comfort. The spacious, open plan living area, leads onto a sun deck. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the loft, just up above the living area, has two single beds, so is ideal for the children. There is an antique cast iron Victorian tub and shower in the en-suite bathroom. The heated pool, braai and entertainment area are available for you to use. Fur-children are permitted by arrangement.
Our delicious spring water, from the taps, is drinkable. We have also invested in a generator to ensure that should Eskom load shed, you will enjoy the luxury of a continuous electricity supply. There will be no ‘lights out’ during your stay with us. Enjoy our free Wi-Fi.
