      It was awesome being back in real nature with no electronics except a fridge. Mountain views out of EVERY window even the bathroom 😀.only negative side was you need to have the window slightly open for the indoor fireplace and with 3 degrees in the evening it wasn't that good. Will definitely go again ,maybe in warmer days.

      We went through a hard personal matter & needed to break away from everyone & everything for a few days & take a break away from the busy city life... Ou werf cottage was the perfect place to be. Corlene is fantastic. The farm views were incredible. Cottage was absolutely wonderful, clean, spacious & equipt with EVERYTHING. I've stayed at many accommodations but this was by far the best.

      When we arrived on a motorbike in howling winds we found out that SafariNow messed up and that the place was double booked. We had nowhere to go and were exhausted after a very long rough ride. Corlene immediately sprang into action and arranged wonderful alternative accommodation for us at no extra cost. She went above and beyond and it was truly appreciated that she helped despite the mistake not being her fault at all. Ou Werf also looked lovely so we will definitely return to stay there next time.

      How marvelous to be right in the peace of the countryside with birdsong as the only ‘distraction’ - I wish we could have stayed longer. The house is simple but comfortable with good beds and views in all directions, yet Bredasdorp is only 15 minutes away. And at night, the stars ...

      We had RAIN. over 50 mm in four hours. Water came in from the higher level of soil on the east side of the house - hundreds of litres we mopped without a mop. The floor of the bedroom was corner to corner covered with seepage. A trench on the exterior wall of the house would fix this. We picked up a lot of plastic bottles around the house and left them in a bin inside. Cleanliness will surely enhance our experience? The braai area was filled with water and no baler is supplied to empty this. Perhaps a slot in the up-stand wall would help - or a drain plug?. Toilet paper! - one roll...
