The Cottages is situated in a quiet working-class area but is a stone’s throw away from the Midmar dam and midlands meander route. T he Meander is home to many local talented artists and crafters.  The midlands are rich in history, creativity, open spaces, and beautiful places.  The space is simple, light, fresh, and peaceful self-catering cottages.

All linen and towels are provided.  The kitchen is equipped with all the basic necessities for cooking.  All surfaces ie counters, tabletops, taps, light switches are sprayed down and disinfected before each new guest arrives.

Guests have full exclusive use of the cottage and courtyard.  The pool is at present being revamped and can not be used.  This pool is not secured with a fence or pool net.  So please be vigilant of children.

The cottages are serviced before and after your stay.  But should you need service during your stay please notify me and I will organize a cleaner.  The property is home to 2 dogs and a cat.  Our dogs are generally friendly but as a caution, we will keep them out of the way.  Our cat is tame and friendly and may come into the cottage but please feel free to put the cat out. 

There is a lovely stoep and braai area to use.

Area Info:

The crooked cottage is situated in a quiet working-class area but is a stone’s throw away from the Midmar dam and midlands meander route. The Meander is home to many local talented artists and crafters. The midlands are rich in history, creativity, open spaces, and beautiful places.

Attractions:

It is rich in local cuisine, fresh produce, and wonderful cups of coffee. It is an early Saturday morning market that welcomes all ages. Another personal favorite is Piggley Wiggley. This is a wonderful spot in the heart of the midlands surrounded by vineyards and fields. It is advised to spend a morning here. There are many curio shops, the best pizza around, a nursery, restaurants, brewery, art galleries, and much much more. There is also a host of things for children to do here. I highly recommend a harvest platter breakfast at the Blue Berry Hill restaurant overlooking the beautiful valleys and hills of the Mooi River. If you are in search of a pampering... Fordoun Spa is the best place to go. With highly trained therapists, it is a magical retreat to rejuvenate the soul.

Howick, the wet season is warm and partly cloudy and the dry season is comfortable and mostly clear.
