About Deer Cottage

Deer Cottage is a quaint renovated cottage located on a farm just outside of Kirkwood. This farm cottage dates back to 1890 and is home to the resident Axis Deer and Springbuck.

The cottage is comfortably furnished and fully equipped for self-catering. The cottage has a large lounge area with fireplace and fully-equipped kitchen. The front of the cottage has a lovely lawn and in the back there is a plunge pool and a jungle gym to entertain the kids. The lapa has a fireplace and a braai area outside.

Kirkwood is a quiet Citrus farming community in the heart of the beautiful Sundays River Valley, close to the town of Addo and the northern regions of the Addo Elephant Park.

      Deer cottage is a lovely place to get away from it all and the house is well equipped. Thank you for a very nice stay.

      Deer Cottage offers a place of tranquility and nature in one. The accommodation is rustic, but certainly of a good standard - a great place to rest and recover from the hustle and bustle of the big city! The staff are great - always looking out for how they can help and make your stay pleasant. Whilst 60kms from Addo Elephant Park, still close enough to have a good day in the park. Well worth making a reservation if you near Kirkwood

      If you want to experience the beauty and peacefulness of the Eastern Cape this is the place to visit. The farm house is charming, rustic, clean and well equipped. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
