Very well turned out cottages set close enough to walk into the central/main road of Franschoek. Beautiful views of the mountains and an excellent swimming pool and gardens. The welcome staff could have been a bit more helpful as we were not offered any of the facilities from the farm, namely picnics or wine tasting, and she could not assist... More

I must admit that given how well priced this accommodation is that I was a bit sceptic on what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by a spacious cottage with everything you need (even a braai) in beautiful surroundings, garden and nearby pool. Greated by friendly staff we were also offered a complimentory wine tasting in the cosy little cellar... More

We stayed in the cottage closest to the road which did suffer from some road noise, but not overly intrusive, avoid if you can though! The accommodation is quite humble, but very clean, adequate and good value for money. I would recommend it for a big group of friends or families who can socialise together but still have their own... More

We stayed in the Apple cottage for three nights and had a lovely, relaxing and fun time. The staff were friendly and helpful and the resident dogs were charming. They helped us eat breakfast every day! Great value for money as well. Complementary wine tasting was fun, even if wines are not that high end. Olive oils are very good.

We stayed in the Apple Cottage which sleeps 2. The cottage is basic but has everything you require including a heated bathroom floor which is perfect for the cold wintry weather we experienced. A criticism is the lack of a reading light and bedside table on one side of the bed. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen is adequately... More

We were not in the cottage very long but enjoyed our short stay. We appreciated that the manager had put on the heaters for us when we arrived in cold and wet Franschhoek and that we were given a complimentary bottle of wine (nice touch). The beds were comfortable which is a must for us and whilst the bathrooms were... More

Whilst we weren't expecting 5 star (it is rated 3 star) we were expecting a little more. Cottage run down and needs a bit of upkeeping. We were comfortable enough, but the noise from the main road was too much. When you book on a wine farm, one expects to have peace and quiet.

We stayed for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer! The cottages were well equipped and all had a terrace and garden. We loved the swimming pool, walking around the farm, the free wine tasting, and Joey the dog! Not forgetting the staff who were very helpful

This is a charming place just outside Franschhoek. The cottages are situated on a working wine farm. Accommodation is basic but good value for the price they charge. There is WiFi and they offer complimentary wine tasting for guests. It is a self catering facility but there is a lovely restaurant called ‘Cafe Bon Bon’ which is within easy walking... More

The cottages are stylishly decorated and furnished and very comfortable. Our host made us feel extremely welcome and could not do enough to help. Our stay included free wine tasting. We will definitely be returning.
