We had a most enjoyable stay in your lovely clean and well-equipped cottage. The meals were delicious and served in a professional manner by Yvonne. Peaceful. Good for the soul. Thanks Sue.

Verified reviewexcellent

charming early 1800s farm stead set in a breath taking vally at the end of a 4km dirt track, this B&B really is the perfect place to relax and unwind. After a walk in the hills we were treated to dinner of excellent karoo lamb in our own private cottage, with dessert on our private terrace overlooking the hills and the sound of kudu rustling in the hills. An unforgettable experience of pure relaxation, pampering and nature with Sue a charming hostess. Magic!
