On Offer at this neat working farm, with wheat, vines, sheep and cattle are three self catering cottages all fronted by an open vista of green fields merging into blue mountain an appealing contrast of the soft and rugged.
Eikelaan Farm Cottages
are light and airy and decorated in natural hues and textures. Wide windows and double doors drench the interior in light. Terracotta floors inject the rustic country edge, offset by warm sisal mats, natural cream curtains, crisp white linen and thick feather down duvets.
All have indoor fireplaces, making for cozy winters in a corner of h world where snow on the nearby mountains is not uncommon. On the other hand, if you`re dropping in during the summer months, you will be thrilled to know the cottages have air-con and overhead fans, as well as easy access to a swimming pool with lapa.
Factoring in the sleeper couch , the two one bedroom cottages, the Witzenberg and the Obiqua, theoretically sleep four, but are realistically designed for two adults- with or without offspring. The Winterhoek, a two bedroom cottage is suited to a larger family and sleeps up to six with an en suite, queen-sized main bedroom and a second twin room and central bathroom. The living room has a further two single stack beds.
Stepping outside, the smaller cottages share a tiled patio and a broad stretch of green lawn, while the larger unit has its own stoep, with outside braai.
Venturing farther afield, the farm has three dams for dunking and fishing for carp, plenty of wide open space for bracing walks between high tea en dinner , as well as a barnyard of farm animals.
For a comfortable and undemanding weekend in the country that will suit both discerning locals and tourists, Eikelaan Farm Cottages is the way to go.
