Once you get into the town of Underberg, it takes another ten minute drive down a well-maintained dirt road to reach the cottage, but as soon as you arrive, you know it was well worth the drive. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owners, Huck and Elsabé who couldn't have been friendlier. We are not the type to self-cater,... More

The rooms are beautifully decorated in chintsey decor. Comfortable king size beds with white crisp linen were very comfortable with the highlight of the electric blanket.... More

Birches is quite remote - 5k down a dirt track from Underberg. The room is fine - but breakfast is only served at the Lemon Tree Cafe in Underberg - and it is frustrating that it doesn't open until 8.30am. All restaurants and shops etc are also in Underberg, so you are likely to be up and down the dirt... More

We eventually found Willows down a 5 Km ish muddy, cow-poo ridden lane( just after milking). There was no one to meet and greet us on arrival, eventually we found an empty room with a note left on the bed for us . In this note were instructions about the breakfast arrangements - if you were happy with a continental... More

The furniture is very comfortable and the fittings and fixtures are all of good quality. The property is beautiful, with well laid out walks down to the river and views over... More
