Clean and surprisingly warm on a winter night. The surroundings are just breathtaking.

The cottage is isolated, quiet and peaceful. Was there with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. We enjoyed sitting by the fireplace. We enjoyed being so close to nature, we saw a few animals. Also enjoyed the olifantbos shipwreck trail.
