We arrived in the evening after a long journey and dropped our bags and rushed to dinner, in the morning we managed to take in the beauty surrounding us, the landscape, the trees, the peace and quiet - really stunning. The cottage is well equipped, everything clean and Nieu Bethesda ended up being a highlight of our holiday.

This beautiful, clean and well situated cottage was so peaceful and tranquil that it feels like we are truly rested even though we were only on a two day break in the Karoo!!! We never used our car once and could easily walk around the quaint little town of Nieu Bethesda from the Rustpunt. The evenings were spent sitting on the 'stoep' looking at the dust of the Milky way (The stars at night are unbelievable!!) An absolute MUST see!!!!

This is a stunning cottage, with views out onto the surrounding mountains. The cottage is secluded, and is well kitted in terms of kitchenware, blankets, etc. It is well located in terms of the rest of the town, with the brewery located in easy walking distance of the cottage. Highly recommended!!
