We visited the place to pluck some black berries and youngberries which were in season. There's an entry price to the bushes, before your plucked berries get charged separately according to its weight. We got half buckets full of blackberries and youngberries for about 30 rands (inclusive of entry price for 2 adults). We found the youngberries were sweeter than... More

A well located restful destination at the foot of the mountain. Well equipped and clean. Friendly and helpful folk. Each cottage has privacy and there is plenty of firewood for the Braai. The horses add a special flavour as does the delightful shop.

Hubby and I enjoyed 10 tasting on the liquers crafted on the farm. A lovely young lady assisted us and was quite knowledgeable about the products. Before buying any product I do recommend tasting first, it gives one something to look forward to.

We had a real Alanis Morissette moment - finding the heater as we were packing up to go... other than freezing during the night, the rustic River Cottage lived positively up to its description and provided a lovely setting for a peaceful weekend.

Very nice cottage. We stayed in the River Cottage. Nice and private at the bottom of the farm. The cottage is simply furnished but with everything you might need. Would definitely recommend staying here again.

It was only a one night stay, but we really enjoyed the stay. Surroundings was beautiful with the mountains, small river and horses. Everyone was really friendly. Our only regret is not getting more wood for fireplace.
