The cottage was perfect with all the mod and cons of the 1st World yet maintaining a home from home feel. Lovely large fireplaces one the enclosed stoep and one in the house. Wonderful peaceful surroundings with amazing mountains framing the landscape with the beautiful river setting right on your doorstep.

We had a wonderful stay at Mooiplaas.It's really peaceful and our boxer loved the freedom. The cottage is an absolute delight, pity the river was icy but I got one swim in :)We had a lovely visit at the Ramkiekie Farm Market at Mountain Ridge Winery and the winemaker Christo was kind enough to take us on a wine tour. Other places to visit in a quick drive Tulbagh and the Tollhouse on the way to Ceres for Roosterkoek. We will be back and had a lovely stay.

We loved our stay in this cosy cottage, spending most of our time relaxing by the riverside. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed the water and exploring his new surroundings. Thank you Mooiplaas for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.

Peaceful and beautifully situated on the river. The cottage was clean and well equipped with everything needed for a few days' break. Although the weather was cold, the cottage stayed cosy thanks to the fireplace and electric blankets.
