About Willowbrooke Cottage
Willowbrooke is only 1km off the main Underberg / Himeville road. It is within walking distance of the Himeville airfield and complimentary collection of guests flying in for a getaway will be our pleasure.
Willowbrooke offers guests a comfortable, unforgettable experience in a fully equipped and serviced self-catering cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that sleeps up to 7 guests at any one time.
Willowbrooke is a fifty acre estate and the country home of your hosts Alan and Michele Howard. Landscaped gardens flank a two hectare trout dam and the estate’s sixteen stables are home to polo ponies and hacks. Discover tranquillity in an up-market country cottage on the banks of our exclusive, well-stocked trout dam.
Enjoy the rustic feel of cypress and thatch in landscaped surrounds while sacrificing none of your creature comforts: Soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi while your ‘braai’ fire crackles…but keep an eye out for that rise and have your rod ready! Relax in the luxury of en-suite accommodation where both the bedroom and bathroom look directly onto the water only metres away, through feature windows.
Self Catering Accommodation
Rustic stairs lead to the loft bedroom with stunning views over Willowbrooke Dam. Enjoy the fishing, gardens, abundant birdlife, walking, horse-riding … or just relax! Whether you fish or not, a sedate row around Willowbrooke dam at dusk with a sundowner is a must! Enjoy your meals in the open plan living area under a vaulted thatched roof, on the verandah or, perhaps on the island under the Willow?
Snuggle under down duvets while a chorus of frogs, wild geese, ducks and occasional trout-splash lull you to sleep… the Willowbrooke experience is simply indescribable!
