About Kingsbury Cottage
This first class self catering cottage is nestled in the foothills of the Silkbush Peak, 36km from Worcester towards Ceres. Set on the edge of the vineyards, one can enjoy stunning views of the upper reaches of the Breede river valley and surrounds.
Self Catering Accommodation
The cottage has an open plan living / dining area with a fully equipped kitchen for twelve including a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is underfloor heating throughout the house and a cosy fireplace will keep you warm in winter. Air conditioning and ceiling fans in all rooms will keep the heat out during summer.
The cottage has two bedrooms, one with a Queen size bed, the other with two three-quarter beds. In the office there is also a very comfortable double sleeper couch, should you need an extra bed. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a sublime slipper bath to relax in. Linen and towels are provided.
An office with wireless internet access caters for those that need to attend to business matters. There is also a printer available. Guests need to bring their own laptops though.
The living room is equipped with TV, DStv, sound system and DVD player.
Outside there is a long “stoep” to enjoy the stunning sunsets and an outside braai will keep the men happy after a long day’s relaxation. Set in the garden is a five-seater Jacuzzi, to soak away the stress while watching the mountain slopes turn pink as the sun sets.
The bird lover will be kept very busy as the surrounding garden is mostly indigenous fynbos and attracts a large number of birds. The nearby dams also provide some excellent bird watching. Bass fishing can be done in the upper dam (bring your own rods) or take the kayak for a spin.
Hiking on the farm is very safe and for the more adventurous, the Witels hiking trail starts on the farm. Access to the UCT Mountain and Ski Club runs over our farm, so if you are fit enough for the hike up the mountain, bring your snow board along! (pre arranged permits from UCT are required).
Silkbush is also the home of the annual Breërivier Mountain Bike Challenge and mountain bikers can bring their bikes and enjoy riding parts of this trail.
