About Shallow Pig Cottage

About Shallow Pig Cottage

Shallow Pig Cottage is situated on a small but working farm 11km (15min drive) outside of Parys and 30min from Potchefstroom.

The self-catering cottage has two bedrooms and one full bathroom. There is an open-plan kitchen nook, a dining table, a lounge area, an indoor fireplace and outdoor braai facilities. The abode also offers guests parking on the premises in a dedicated carport.

Attractions in and around the area include the Parys Golf Course, the Vredefort Dome and the Vaal Dam.

Family friendly: Ideal for a family weekend out of the city. Take walks or hikes down to the stream or into the dome for expansive views, and fetch your own eggs from the chicken coup.

Needs signage at the main road gate.If you like something rustic with a bit of peace and quite, this is the place. Not to far from Parys but far enough away to feel like you are out in the bush. Warrin, who runs the place on behalf of the owners, goes above and beyond the call of duty, always willing to help.

The unit itself is very neat, the beds comfy and the bathroom spacious. The owners are very friendly. We spend a whole day away from any phones and only realised what the time was when the chickens came to say good night. Will definitely go... Read more
