Let me start off with the good. The property is conveniently located with most venues only a short distance away, The property is stunning and a pleasure to behold. Likewise, the cottages are beautifully decorated and provide a comfortable feel. However, The door arches are extremely low for the taller persons among us. The bathrooms are bare and not a... More

We were there during the week so it seemed deserted. The room was nice, but pitch dark in shower and the fancy sinks didn't allow our washing kits or have other than a dim fluorescent light for making up. There is a cat on premises that you are not told about, will come in your room if door is open... More

We had a wedding to attend on a Farm in Winterton. The Rose Cottage was an awesome B&B. Simply Stunning! Everything from our booking to our departure was an effortless experience. A beautiful part of country that needs to be explored much more.

If you're looking for a room for a night or 2 then look no further than Winterton Country Lodge- although you need to book one of their new suites called Love, Hope, Joy or Peace. The other rooms are more suited for families with children. The Lodge itself is simple and basic but clean well run.

It was a wonderful surprise to find such a lovely stay! Enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and trees. The room was new and contemporary and enjoyed the pecan nuts and sherry complimentary from the staff. The Irises and Arum Lilies outside the door in full bloom was a special treat for me.

We had a short, but lovely stay and especially appreciated how accommodating and understanding our host, Julita, was. We could just sit back and relax with no worries at all. Beautiful and relaxing surroundings, clean and well-kept and elegant. Delicious dinner!

Lovely place to stay. The owners are very nice and helpful. Many tips for activities in the area. The rooms are spacious and clean. The layout is a bit unusual. A separate bathroom would have been nice (not much privacy, because it's in the middle of the room).

Booked this lodge because it was convenient for an early Hot Air Balloon trip. The lodge was what we expected. Warm welcome. Very comfortable and peaceful. Loved the Pecannut plantation. Secure environment. Beautiful view. Easy access.
