      On paper the idea sounds good, to stay in Sutherland in a place that is 'green', that doesn't have electricity at all. But in reality you can't stay there for more than one night, especially in winter. It is a small place made of stone, the floor is also stone and there are no carpets to warm the place. There are only two springbok skins next to the bed.The bed has a thin uncomfortable mattress that has a mattress protector made of plastic and everytime you move, you hear and feel it underneath you which I hated. The bed had a thin duvet but they did have lots of blankets but I would have expe...

      We stayed at Fonteintjie as Saffraan was already booked out. Such a treat to be cared for by our host Juanita. The cottage has all the necessities and cozy winter gear (electric blankets, wall heaters, indoor fire place). Breakfast was great each morning with wonderful home comforts. Definitely our 1st choice when we visit Sutherland again. 4 Stars for Fontentjie!! Jason and Jamie-Lee

      The Saffraan cottage certainly lives up to its image of being a romantic hide-away under the amazing Sutherland sky. Our host Juanita was exceptionally nice and knowledgable about the area. The cottage is a VERY basic single room, without a kitchen basin. Cooking meals proved to be challenging. Polyester bed linen, single ply toilet paper, and a tricky gas shower made the stay feel on the 'cheap' side. We loved the whole experience but would search for something a bit more luxurious should we visit Sutherland again.

      If you looking for peace and quite, this is the place!!! We felt we were the only 2 people for miles and miles!  The stone cottage is quaint , cosy and very clean....our braai under the Saffraan trees was very special, we will definitely be back.  Sutherland has so much to offer and the Stargazing is unbelievable, we learnt so much from Jurg... a big thank you to everyone.
