The Herb Cottage, Magoebaskloof, Limpopo Province

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Magoebaskloof, Limpopo Province
The Herb Cottage is located on a working avocado and herb farm, tucked away in the Magoebaskloof mountains of the Limpopo. It is a fully self contained cottage with two bedrooms (one queen size bed and the other room with two three quarter beds) with en suite bathrooms and an outside shower looking onto the forest.

For cold misty nights there is a cosy log fire.
We are wheelchair friendly with a gentle ramp entrance and handy holds in the bathroom and outside shower.
The garden stretches down to a pond and a river walk, with a picnic area where you can just relax and watch the birds and listen to the river tumble past. The butterflies are worth taking time to watch, and we have several rare birds only found in our fore...

A well-appointed hideaway at the end of an "interesting" dirt road into the valley. The Herb Cottage has everything you need for a self-catered weekend (or longer) away. We were only 2 but the cottage has beds for 5, so would comfortably suit a family...More

About the neighborhood
The Herb Cottage is half an hour away from Tzaneen, in the Limpopo Province, north of Johannesburg.
It is located on a farm, with only 2.5 kms of dirt road to get to us. It is secluded and tucked between an avocado orchard, herb garden, indigenous forest and a river. A wonderful place to come and relax!
Good restaurants and a quaint village (Haenertsburg) are 20 kms away, and the Kruger National Park an hour and a half away.
There are lovely walks around the area, and waterfalls to visit and picnic at.
