Getaway (South Africa) - - THE FINAL CUT -

Sit­u­ated on the cor­ner of quiet Lake Clarens Drive, this cute two-bed­room sand­stone cot­tage is a vil­lage op­tion that doesn’t feel hemmed in by a sub­ur­ban streetscape. The lit­tle raised stoep is where you’ll want to spend your days: sit­ting on your bench, with a fire blaz­ing in the built-in braai, your view is of cy­presses and moun­tains, a pond and bird-filled dam on the other side of the track – hard to be­lieve the bus­tle of the vil­lage is just a five-minute walk away. In­te­rior fin­ishes are rus­tic (un­plas­tered brick walls), the decor is ba­sic (if this is im­por­tant, French Cot­tage is a bet­ter bet) and the de­sign is com­pact: two en-suite bed­rooms on ei­ther side of a small­ish lounge/din­ing/kitchen area, eas­ily warmed by a cen­tral Jet­mas­ter. ROOM TIP Both bed­rooms are en suite and have queen-size beds, so suitable for two cou­ples or a small fam­ily with kids young enough to share a bed. COST From R900 for two or R1 400 for four.
