Mooiplaas River Cot­tage


Getaway (South Africa) - - The Final Cut -

It’s a long and bumpy road through farm­lands to reach this two-bed­room stone cot­tage on the banks of the Breede, with gor­geous views and no sign of any other hu­man habi­ta­tion. The cot­tage is very rus­tic – a sim­ple, open-plan liv­ing space (with fire­place) that opens onto a deep, fur­nished stoep over­look­ing the river. Aside from the re­mote lo­ca­tion, the stretch of wa­ter here is the real lux­ury, of­fer­ing won­der­ful, pri­vate swim­ming even at the height of sum­mer. Aside from the two be­d­rooms, there is a sleeper couch that can fit two peo­ple. It’s a work­ing farm, which guests are wel­come to ex­plore. And yes, Mooiplaas is an­other pet-friendly place. ROOM TIP There is one queen bed and a pair of twin beds. If Mooiplaas is full, neigh­bour­ing River Edge of­fers five cot­tages (see Worth a Look be­low). COST R1 500 for two, plus R400 pp ex­tra, chil­dren R300 each (sleeps six). Min­i­mum two-night stay. CONTACT mooiplaas­river­cot­
