Dove Cottage shares the 1 500m2 erf with B's Cottage but they are totally private and fenced off from one another.
This is home-from-home where you can curl up with a book in front of the fireplace, enjoy the spacious patio/braai area with friends and family or have your sun-downer on the veranda watching the sky turn from blue to red to pink...
The open-plan living/dining/kitchen area is fully equipped with an electric hob, oven, microwave, fridge and washing machine. Linen and towels are provided, as are the basic kitchen essentials such as coffee, tea, salt, pepper etc.
Off road parking is available on the premises - one just needs to take into account that the two cottages share the same driveway.
We are pet-friendly - but a kind request is that your pets must be socialised as there are two cottages on one property. Pets are also not allowed on the furniture.
If you have to watch television (or listen to your favourite radio station), we do provide the EasyView bouquet DSTV. WiFi is available on site.
If you are more adventurous and would like to explore the area, have a look what you can do whilst staying in our lovely cottage.
