          We loved staying here. Accommodation is comfortable at Veldmaiden. Rooms are well appointed and clean . The fireplace is awesome, heats up the whole cottage! The kitchen is very well equipped, everything and more supplied for use. It would be nice if bath towels could be supplied.The store of books amazing. A lovely, low-key, quiet, off the grid stay close to the river. Loved it!

          Our stay in the Veldmaiden Cottage was truly wonderful. The cottage is well equipped, and the wood burning stove made for cosy evenings round the fire.The village of Groot Marico enchanted us, with readings of Herman Charles Bosman at the Living Museum, and Mampoer made by masters. We will definitely be back!
