A return visit for us proved just as good as last year — fabulous views, peace and tranquility, yet there is always something going on to catch the eye when sitting on the verandah: the bird life is terrific. Mosesberg Cottage accommodates two people and comprises a huge lounge/bedroom; separate kitchen with lots of equipment; a beautiful bathroom with lovely walk-in shower; undercover braai and verandah with a deep pool — all immaculately maintained. The view from the verandah is a valley of vines and olive trees with the R62, Rooiberg Winery and Worcester-Mosselbai railway in the distance. We even saw a train this trip — a first for us, we thought the line was abandoned! The staff could not be more helpful and professional with lots of activities if wanted — yet never impose if you wish to do your own thing. The farm now produces it's own range of '1812' toiletries using home grown ingredients that you can purchase as gifts. The nearby Rooiberg Winery has very well priced wines, a very popular cafe and excellent bakery with a range of country-style goods — even Marmite muffins — real fusion food! Robertson is a charming town only 10-15 minutes away surrounded by wine farms that have some excellent tasting and dining offers, boat trips on the Bree River and wine related events throughout the year. Sit on the verandah with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down, the moon set and the vast sky of stars appear — perfect!
