Mountain Cottages & Camping


Three colourful down to earth mountain cottages: Faraway, Orange and Eric’s Place, as well as 8 campsites are all off-grid, private and surrounded by mountains, while a starry sky looks over them at night.

The cottages are equipped with solar geysers and gas back-up for hot water, cooking and refrigeration.

Occasionally we also offer Dinner Bed & Breakfast. A unique African-Swiss cuisine, prepared on the open fire and naturally served by candlelight. The morning air filled with the aroma of freshly-ground organic coffee, wood fired bread and the chant of the birds will provide a perfect start for an enjoyable day out in the mountains.

Faraway Cottage

This is our most remote farm cottage, at the end of a good gravel road with amazing views of renosterveld and protea covered hills. The perfect down to earth, rustic and off grid cottage for one or two couples or a small family. Inside the open fireplace keeps you warm in winter, while outside the bush bathtub invites you to cool off in a truly unique setting.
