Admittedly not involved in the booking or selection of this charming get-away spot, we arrived at Die Laaitjie with absolutely zero expectations - for a family-and-friends weekend away after a wedding. The road, leading to this beautiful character filled farm (yes, its a farm, not a boutique hotel), is a perfect metaphor for Die Laaitjie itself...A little on the rough... More

I've been to Die Laaitjie on several occasions and can't get enough of this getaway. Nestled in the mountains about 10km outside Robertson, this is the perfect place for a relaxing, get away from it all, holiday. There is no cell phone or internet connection meaning you can really escape from the stress of city life. This time we decided... More

After seeing the website, we were really excited about this and thought maybe we have found a gem. This was not the case. The cottage was dirty - so dirty that the white couches had orange blankets over them. Everything was just a bit old and not clean. We were really very disappointed and will not return.

Two families spent a weekend in the cottages at Die Laaitjie. Thanks to glorious weather we were able to walk to the waterfall and rock pools and enjoy refreshing (cold!) swims in the pools. The walks were wonderful as lots of climbing over rocks was required which ended in many falls and laughter. Long tapas lunch was had under the... More

Read the review posted by Adam in 2013 - everything is true. Without going into too much detail: the place is in serious need of basic maintenance and it needs a good cleaning. BUT read the above in context of the below: My family and I spent a week at Die Laatjie in December 2013 and we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

To start off, what awesome hosts!! Roger, thank you for the stories and for your help over the weekend - and what a weekend it was!! 11 ladies + one hen weekend + torrential rain = FUN GUARANTEED! The weather was terrible - absolutely pouring buckets, which is not a common occurrence in this area - so all our plans... More

For those who are looking for a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Die Laaitjie is the perfect place. Situated in the mountains, you really appreciate the quietness of the surroundings. Everything you need is there, a well equipped kitchen, outside braai, pool and lots of space, both inside and outside. The Main House... More

Nestled in the mountains just outside Robertson is an amazing guest lodge and chalets. We rented the Manor House which sleeps 4 couples in 4 amazing en-suite bedrooms with amazing scenic views. It is self catering and we had braais at night. There are two magnificent walks - one to the amazing waterfalls and another to the rock pools where... More

After having visited three times to Die Laaitjie, I still haven't got enough! Worth a visit in both winter or summer with a pool, covered braai area and two indoor fire places. Stayed in the manor house all three times. Decor is exquisite. Two kitchens which allowed for plenty of space for all of us staying there. Perfect place for... More

We stayed at one of the cottages for the weekend. The farm is a distance from Robertson and has incredible views of the mountains and a gorge that you can walk to. The serenity of the cottages and the nearby swimming pool was wonderful. Roger and Bev made sure we had everything we needed and introduced us to Patches, the... More
