What a gem of a place to stay, the owners are divine adding lovely little touches like fresh milk and farm eggs in the fridge... we also forgot to bring cooking oil which they also so kindly lent us to make our breakfast. The cottages are gorgeously finished with underfloor heating and a homely fire place. And the bath tub was pure bliss! Thank you so much Colin, our second stay and we can't wait for a third!

The little extras go a long way! Layout & decor is great, everything you need is provided and exceeded our expectations.Built-in braai on verandah would be great due to wind in evening & mattress might need replacing soon.Would definitely recommend and visit again - great weekend getaway!

Loved it all, all the little extras, fresh eggs for us, little condiments and home baked rusks for early morning tea. Loved it all. Highly recommended. Colin was attentive to us and very welcoming. Had very little time to actually appreciated the surroundings to due to inclement weather but a beautiful farm very well maintained and just all round a lovely space.
