About Rushmere Farm Cottages

Rushmere Farm Cottages are nestled into the hillside on an historic farm 3km off the N2 highway between Knysna and Sedgefield, heart of the Garden Route, along the southern coast of South Africa. Rural peace and quiet in a beautiful environment is offered to weary travellers and stressed city-dwellers.

Rushmere Farm borders onto Ruigtevlei Lake, a National Parks bird sanctuary, which in turn opens into Swartvlei and ultimately the sea at Sedgefield. A private jetty and canoes give guests access to this tranquil and little-known gem.

Sedgefield Self-Catering

Superb self-catering accommodation is provided in two sunny fully-equipped cottages. Both self-catering cottages are simply decorated with country flair. Although they are semi-detached, they are very private and each is set in its own garden with an uninterrupted view over emerald pastures, dark forests and the blue Outeniqua Mountains. In the summer holiday season, B&B is available in a thatched cottage in the farmhouse garden.

Please Note:
• Children 8 years and older are welcome.
• No pets allowed
• In the Summer Season, B&B is available in a thatched cottage in the Farmhouse Garden

Thank you Carol for your kind hospitality and warm welcoming smile. For my cousins from Canada the cottage was a fantastic start to a very happy holiday. Will recommend to all..........and I'll be back. To future guests look out for the beautiful paintings by Carol, one of which is now gracing my English home.
