About The Milking Parlour Cottage

The Milking Parlour Cottage is a converted milking shed built originally in the ‘70’s to milk cows. Situated on a working pineapple and beef farm, it is very central for exploring the area and enjoying the best beaches in the world 20kms away at Kenton on Sea.

The conversion of the cottage was done in 2000 and we have had numerous interesting people stay, among them John van der Riet of Spud fame and we have also looked after the film crew of 50 / 50.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottage has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is very comfortably equipped to make your stay one you will remember. Linen and towels are provided.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a fridge / freezer, stove and microwave and a kettle and toaster. Crockery and cutlery are plentiful and you need bring nothing but your food and drink. However if you would like breakfast or any other meals they can be arranged beforehand.

There is a small television and a magnificent fire place. Wood is supplied for both the indoor fire as well as for the braai.

Activities and Attractions

The farm has a 9km hiking trail and other shorter walks for the not so energetic. You may request a guided hike if you would prefer, as well as a pineapple farm tour, this also by arrangement. There are also numerous other trails in the area which can be walked as day walks and of course there are the different beach walks. Dias Cross is a popular one being the point that Bartholomew Dias planted one of his many crosses around Africa in 1488.

The birds are numerous and interesting. The trogan (Knysna loerie) and various eagles, martial, fish, crowned, can often be seen or heard. There are also guided bird walks available, in the area, with registered birders. Booking in advance is essential.

We are also right next door to Kariega Game Reserve, our boundary fence is with them and so the lions, elephants, rhinos are often seen just driving to Kenton on Sea. Canoeing up the Bushmans River and horse riding along the beaches are both available at Kenton on Sea. Also at Kenton are a number of restaurants and coffee shops to pop into when needing to recover from hectic sightseeing.

There is a lot of history in the area, Salem, the small Settler village founded in 1820 with its club where cricket and tennis are played and two Methodist churches built in 1823 and 1856 still in regular use.

Location

We are very well situated, being an hour from Addo, an hour and a half from Port Elizabeth, half an hour from Grahamstown, Port Alfred and Alexandria. Well worth a visit.

Verified reviewvery good

This neat cottage is the perfect place for a relaxed and simple getaway. The kitchen has everything one could need. The fireplace in the open plan lounge creates a cozy and inviting ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Close enough to Kenton-on-sea to pop over there for breakfast, a few groceries or a beach walk.
