                          Cobus was very helpful and organised and cooked a lovely supper and also packed a breakfast as we left early.The place is quite and a good wifi is in the room and the beds are comfortable.

                          We were staying in a spacious 3 bedroom house with drive in access into the yard. We found it neat and clean.
