About Hilltop Cottage

We have two cottages on Farraway Farm. Luxurious Hilltop Cottage, built on the top of a hill giving it an unsurpassed view extending tens of kilometers down the valley with the massive mountains in Lesotho in the background. Our second cottage, Shepherd's Cottage, is a one bedroom cottage which we completed in Sep 2018. Both cottages have verandas with braai areas. They also have wood burning fires (complementary firewood) and electric blankets and heaters, so you will never be cold when everything outside is covered in snow! Hilltop Cottage has full DSTV and Shepherd's Cottage has satellite TV. The cottages are about 400 m apart, so they are completely private. Both cottages are fenced and are pet friendly.
Farraway Farm is 90 ha, and neighbours Parks Board land which borders Lesotho. Over a km of the Mzimude River runs through the farm, and we have a dam. The circumference of the farm is about 5 km. You may see wild eland and reedbuck come down from Parks Board land to drink from our river. And, at night, you are likely to hear jackals howling.

Hilltop Cottage has two en-suite bedrooms and a large living area cottage is luxurious, quiet and very private. It has its own fenced garden that is about an acre, and is about 200 m from the main farm house.

All you need to bring is your food, camera and walking shoes. And some carrots if you want our horses to love you!

          A beautiful patch of heaven. Friendly owners/hosts and staff. We soaked in the beautiful scenery and walks . If you love nature, and need a break from the rat race, this is the place to be. Our two dogs so enjoyed the walks and running around the fully fenced garden and exploring the farm with us. We enjoyed hearing and seeing the sheep coming past the cottage and feeding the horses carrots. At night one can hear the jackal's call. The wood stove was a wonderful way to keep the cottage toasty and warm. Angel came in daily to service the cottage. We had everything we needed and this is one...

          Everything was perfect, the cottage is very well thought out and spotlessly clean. We loved the wood burning stove, it warmed up the cottage quickly, and of course, the complete silence!

          We so enjoyed staying at Hilltop Cottage. Huge rooms, really comfortable beds. It was clean and well taken care of. Beautiful views and a picture perfect dam and river. We wish we could’ve stayed longer!
