The cottages are spacious with views in every direction and sitting right on the fynbos mountain slopes. Lovely airy design with indoor fire and outdoor braai which were both much appreciated this weekend. The walking trails are beautifully laid out. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here and will return!

We loved our stay at Phillipskop - and look forward to returning for a longer stay. The cottage is lovely, spacious and the design makes the best of the beautiful views from every room. As a family we really enjoyed the walking trails the reserve has to offer. All in all - it surpassed our expectations :) A very peaceful and relaxing stay.
