very nice place to stay, a main house and some cottages all in the midst of a beautiful garden and a big fruit farm! The owner is very friendly and offered a perfect service. We arrived quite late but it was still no problem to get dinner. We got breakfast at the nearby restaurant and spent some hour in the... More

From the outside the accommodation looks rustic, but once through the doors, clean and everything you could want. Staff are very friendly and delicious dinner and breakfast. Grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed our walk through the orchards

Indeed, the garden at this place is stunning and peaceful. However, that's where the good stuff ended for us. When we arrived we were met by a tired and bored-looking staff member and not by the owners. The booking was also messed up as we were offered a rondavel that we did not book, but we were able to get... More

One of the biggest units I have ever stayed in on a holiday. Magnificent garden. Great service from superb hosts. Very peaceful and completely safe. Just needs to be slightly modernised and TV repaired.

We had a most pleasant stay at Blue cottages. our cottage was clean and well stocked. The grounds were well maintained, beautiful and serene. Our hosts were friendly and gave us the best info about the area and where to eat. Very relaxing

Really beautiful gardens - stunning surroundings. Bookings totally misunderstood despite clear email instructions. 4 single adults (3 in their 60's and one in her 40's) given a room with a double bed and a kids' bunk bed. Horrible dark stains on one of the pillows (like dried blood), which we could see through the thin pillow slip. That left us... More

The rondavel in which we stayed was a bit rustic and indeed dark. We needed the bathroom door with the light on to see properly. However the hospitality was excellent and both meals dinner and breakfast were superb. WE have to say that the visit of the horse for his breakfast was novel.
