About Willowbrooke Cottage

Willowbrooke Cottage is only 1km off the main Underberg / Himeville road.

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.

Self Catering Accommodation

Willowbrooke Cottage 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.

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.

Rustic stairs lead to the loft bedroom with stunning views over Willowbrooke Dam. 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.

This stunning cottage went beyond my expectation of "just a self-catering cottage". It is luxury through and through. Michele and her staff made us feel at home straight away, even including a few extra's to make our family feel special. Small family or a romantic weekend away - this delightful gem should be on the top of your list! I would highly recommend this to all and cannot wait to go back to Willowbrooke!
