Three comfortable self-catering cottages have cozy fireplaces for those winter nights. All cottages have electricity, fridges and gas stoves. The Stone Age Cottage and the Croft Cottage also have microwave ovens. We supply linen and blankets in all the cottages, cutlery, crockery, pots and pans.

Ball games are allowed on the volley ball field. The rondavel -Hadeda’s Nest shares the camper’s ablutions. View the tranquillity of the mountains from the cottages or from your camp site. Enjoy a hike on one of the walking trails, if you are a bird lover bring your camera for those great photographic pictures or relax and create a serene painting from your door step.
