          Stunning location with views like no other. Beautiful wildlife, perfect cottages. Cannot recommend highly enough. Hikes were great, the river gorgeous, and the birds in full song. Will definitely return!

          This is a gem. The winding road turns off from the R62 and turns ever more towards the mountains. Expect spekboom and aloes and watch out for tortoises. I had expected a small rustic establishment and found an idyllic settlement of 3 spotlessly clean cottages...More
