The Farm Cottage
We publish the 20 latest reviews of our self-catering accommodation directly from AirBnB.
Yes, the farm cottages themselves (Fig for sunrise and Willow for sunset) are a bit close to the main road that feeds the town (it gets very quiet at night), but this is soon forgotten should your aim be to explore the countryside and wander the pear orchards and swim or relax at either of the dams.
We are the most conveniently located cottage to stay at should you wish to experience the Theewaterskloof Dam, the valley and the surrounding towns.
Find quietness at the Private Pear Dam with hammock, benches, barbecue spot, canoes and rolling lawn. The pear dam is the best spot to laze about and watch the kids and dogs play – of course we are pet friendly too.
We had a beautiful walk to the dam. Our labrador enjoyed the farm life and appreciated the doggy treats! Very easy check in process.

Beautiful surroundings, safe and enclosed for dogs.
Relaxing at the dam is a must.
On the main road, however traffic noise isn’t a major issue.

A wonderful place to stay. Close to town but far enough out of town to have a farm feel. Great place for a jog along the water edge too.
