Perfect in every way

From our warm welcome from Lizette on Thursday evening, to our reluctant departure on Sunday morning, our stay at Blue Gum Farm Cottage was just wonderful. The cottage is perfectly equipped, comfortable, cosy and beautifully situated with a view of the fields and distant mountains. There is a fireplace indoors and a braai with grid (and light!) outside. Even though it was cold we couldn't resist sitting outside for hours at the table, enjoying the view and the fresh air and playing ball games on the lawn. We also took several day trips to nearby towns, including Arniston, Napier, Greyton and the enchanting Genadendal. Coming back to 'our' cottage every afternoon was always a pleasure. Our three-year-old loved the games, toys and sweets that were so thoughtfully provided, and the adults enjoyed special sweet treats on our pillows too! This cottage is among the loveliest we have stayed in, and we have done a fair number of self-catering holidays around South Africa. Thank you, Lizette, for a very special farm stay!

What an awesome place to spend a weekend.... I will definitely recommend it to others. Friendly hosts, and the little touches made all the difference. Thank you!

if you want a supremely clean, modern, but quiet countryside get away, this is what you need. We enjoyed the absolute quite no-traffic anywhere overnight stay. The owner's friendly instructions and good communication made it easy to locate. I we could, we would have stayed longer. (No TV. forces one to talk and spend time together, instead of looking at a screen all the time - bad habit)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Blue Gum cottage. Such beautiful scenery and the cottage had everything we needed. We look forward to visiting again. Thank you to Lizette for being so accommodating.

We really had a great time at the cottage. A place we will definitely go back to. We like the view and the nice quietness - made it very relaxing to us. We would like to thank Lizette for the clean environment in the cottage itself.

It was a beautiful tranquil cottage, with attention to detail and the little things that make a big difference. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to relax and get away from the city life.

What a gorgeous tranquil place to stay. We will definitely stay there again. I have given 4 stars as if I had been staying longer I would have liked an oven but maybe next time we will just bring the weber. Thank you Lizette for supplying such great accommodation.

We were very impressed with the attention to detail in the cottage. It is very clean and well stocked. Great kitchen, bathroom (incl bath) lounge furniture, stoep couch and braai.

Lizette was the perfect host on the farm. Leaving us to enjoy our little cottage in privacy while always being on hand if we needed anything. Blue Gum is a place to unwind and my two sons loved the chance to run a bit wild on a real sheep farm.
Wonderful stay at Blue Gum Farm Cottage

The most relaxing, quite and wonderful weekend in a long time. Everything was 100% on our arrival and there is nothing more that you need. Everything is perfect!
Will definitely go back and tell my family and friends about Blue Gum Farm Cottage.

This cottage is surrounded by beautiful valleys of fields of colour. It is so tranquil here at Blue Gum that it was a pity we didn't stay longer. Lizette has put so much love and care into this cottage; it has everything you need and the bed is extremely comfortable. Very clean, spacious and well-decorated, it felt luxurious! Definitely a place to unwind and catch up with your partner or friends. I can't wait to return.

It was great being on the farm at wheat harvesting and sheep shearing time. As photographers we enjoyed the many photographic opportunities. Lizette was a wonderful hostess and made us very welcome. We will definitely go back there when we are in the area.
