Plumtree Cottages is 'n pragtige, baie gerieflike plek in Nuweland. Lekker naby aan winkels en lekker stil. Pragtige uitsig op berg. Kamers is pragtig ingerig en alles is daar wat jy nodig het. Prue is 'n wonderlike gasvrou en ek sal enige tyd weer daar gaan bly

Verified reviewexcellent

A charming cottage and a charming host! Despite being winter ,the cottage was warm and comfortable and was equipped with everything that a traveller would need! It was private and set in a beautiful garden with the mountain forming the backdrop. Amenities were close by - restaurants , a petrol station with a Pick and Pay and it was within walking distance of Cavendish Square. I would be very happy to stay here again and would certainly recommend it to others,! Kathy Lopes
