About Addo Reach & Hein's Cottage

Addo Reach & Hein's Cottage is a cosy home away from home, fully equipped for self-catering, where your privacy and comfort is assured. The cottage sleeps two in a double bedroom with twin beds - which can be made into a king if you prefer (this for 2+ night stays), with an en-suite bathroom and shower. There is space in the lounge for a fold down mattress, and depending on the size of additional guest, he or she could sleep on the cane sofa which is quite long and can be made comfortable. There would be an additional charge. We offer full DSTV, together with CD, DVD player, and radio for your enjoyment and you would be free to browse through the library of DVD's we have. There is a private braai area, and patio, and a vehicle can normally be parked next to Hein's Cottage, behind a locked gate. Daily servicing of the cottage is included in our rate and should you need a laundry service this we do offer, but at an extra cost. There are three additional bedrooms in the main house, as well as the Loft Library and all rooms enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, bottled water and hospitality toiletries. Our non-licensed home pub has a TV and you are welcome to join us there – but bring your own tipple. Ours is a non-smoking in the house establishment, but the garden is large.If you don;t feel like cooking, meals are available on request at reservation. A full 'English' breakfast at R60.00 per person and a 2-course dinner at R140.00 per person is offered, if you let us know on reservation. Braai packs, wood and bread can be russled up too. Louis' Pub and Grub is open on Fridays and Saturdays with the best steaks and pizzas and splendid atmosphere.Alicedale is a small hamlet in the heart of 1820 Settler country. This is a safe, secure and malaria-free environment with superb game viewing opportunities. Addo Elephant Park and the Shamwari, Pumba and Scotia Parks, to name a few, are within easy driving distance, on excellent roads. The historic and picturesque towns of Grahamstown, Salem and Sidbury are also within easy driving distance and the renowned Grahamstown Festival in June and July of each year, with the cream of local and international arts, crafts and theatre is but 52 km away.For the more energetic there are good mountain biking trails. With a very low almost non-existent crime rate, guests who enjoy running find some of the uphills grueling but satisfying or you can choose to test your skill on the challenging 18-hole Gary Player Golf Course, within walking distance of our space. Or why not just take the opportunity to enjoy the abundant bird population, relax, sleep late, read, paint - enjoy the peace and quiet away from the madding crowd.

                          We enjoyed our stay very much. Good food and great company. We especially liked the ironed sheets!

                          One of the best accommodation I ever enjoyed in SA; very tasteful interiors, enough space and very clean. Friendly owner. All was perfect! Thank you!

                          Eli, John and Gran are such nice, friendly people that, even if the cottage was a pondokkie, it would have been worth staying there. The cottage was in fact extremely comfortable and the service was excellent! While staying there, it is well worth it to visit the local pub, Louis', for a drink or two and a delicious steak.
