They have a microwave, stove, fridge/ freezer, kettle, coffee and tea, toaster and all the basics for light food preparation, fire pit/ braai/ barbeque (free wood). We prefer your stay includes exploring local eateries and picnics than wanting to prepare gourmet meals in the cottages 🙂
Will our bicycles be safe?
Yes, we have outside security beams and a bike rack on the patio to securely lock them up against the wall.
How close is the cottage to the dam?
The farm has over 1km of water frontage when the dam is full although, due to the gently sloping shoreline, when the level drops it can extend a few minutes walk from the cottages to over 10 minutes to reach the water’s edge.
How far is the farm from the Theewater Sports Club?
We are neighbours, so a few minutes in the car or 15 to 20 minute walk.
