This is full of character, having originally been a stone kraal for sheep and later developed into accommodation.
It comprises of four rooms (TGSA 3 star graded and Highly Recommended by the AA), all en-suite and with tea and coffee facilties.
Three rooms whose historical role on the farm is encapsulated in their names, Blacksmith etc. Each of these rooms can accommodate two guests.
The Engine Room, Coal Room and Shed room, whose former functions are clear, are larger rooms with various little extras to make your stay that bit better. They overlook fields of lucerne in which sheep sometimes graze.
This cottage also began life as a sheep corral which was later improved into a labourers' cottage but which was uninhabited from the 1930's until the present owners completely renovated it and added another room and two bathrooms. Today, the cottage has one en-suite double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a lounge with a sleeper couch, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen.
For 21 years we have been looking after orphaned meerkats until they can be returned safely to the wild. A visit to us is not complete without looking in on these engaging little creatures.
