We had a lovely stay. The small details such as a packed fireplace and the extra wood was a lovely touch. We will definitely be back.

It is a wonderful secluded cabin perfect for getting away from it all. We really enjoyed ourselves.

The cottage was fully equipped not just the kitchen but also games, magazines, brochures etc. It was very clean, well set out, great wood fire place, fantastic views and we were greeted upon our late arrival. I would love to stay again, but for much longer. I have been recommending Bergvlei Cottage to my Australian friends.

The cottage was clean and comfortable. We had a bit of a problem with the lounge flooding during heavy rain.
