About Plover Cottage Bed & Breakfast

Plover Cottage offers the ideal stopover for the weary traveller. Come relax in the beautiful countryside of big sky country and breathe the fresh air of the Orange Free State. Make your overnight stop part of your holiday.

Plover Cottage caters for the overnight traveller and those visiting Bloemfontein who prefers the peace and quiet of the country to the noisy city. We are not involved with conferencing and guarantee no loud business parties. The cottages are furnished with antique and collectable furniture with heaters and extra blankets in each room for the cool winter nights. All the units offer cooking facilities for those who prefer cooking for themselves. Continental breakfasts are available with dinners on request.

The Glen area of Bloemfontein is steeped in history and offers interesting walks and crystal clear night skies. There is a nine-hole golf course nearby and the Modder River and neighbouring farms provide a true country setting with calming night sounds.

      Plover is a good stopover for travelling from the south towards Jo'burg. Plover situated just outside Bloemfontein. The accommodation is secure and clean.

      After driving up from Plettenberg Bay to Pretoria we stopped at Plover Cottages with our dog on route home. The dinner was home made and delicious, and a bed never felt so good. Gavin and Karien were very friendly and the cottage we stayed in very clean and comfortable. Thank you, we will be back!
